Excellent upgradable and durable laptop

Tony, Amazon
16 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought this laptop used with the intent on upgrading it. Upgraded memory to the max 16GB, installed a SSD as a boot drive, replaced the DVD drive with a hard drive caddy for mass storage. Replaced the dual core Core i5 3320m with a Core i7 3720qm quad core. The only thing I haven't done yet is upgrade the LCD panel to a higher resolution 1600X900 panel. I Installed Ubuntu 13.10 as the OS. It's amazing how fast this thing is! Laptop also supports USB 3.0.

Happy with it

Amazon Customer, Amazon
22 October 2013
  • Summary: This was supplied by my company. I use it daily and it is a nice machine. The keyboard is smaller than average keyboards but even though I type very fast without looking at the keyboard, I have no problems finding the keys. This computer is great for work and runs all the programs I need to run quickly and efficiently. Very happy with it.

Poor keyboard, otherwise average laptop

V. Zanini, Amazon
26 September 2013
  • Summary: My company supplied this computer. It's an average-looking computer, not particularly exciting nor sturdy. Pros: - Screen: it has high luminosity and very limited glare. The screen is non-reflective, which makes it usable under any light condition and with any light background. - Size and weight: average, normal for a laptop this class, this price Cons: - Keyboard: the keyboard is it's biggest weakeness. Mainly the layout of the Delete, Home, End, Page Up/Down keys.

Don't buy this laptop unless your company buys it for you

Raj, Amazon
19 September 2013
  • Summary: This laptop reminds me of the typical nondescript white sedan available at most car rental counters; it's reasonably comfortable, has decent horsepower, and has okay range. I understand why a corporate IT department would select this computer. It's very standard and has a good number of inputs and output. But I'd never spend my own money on one. The keyboard doesn't feel substantial, the monitor has a very low resolution, and the machine looks heavier than it feels.

Cheap to the utmost

mfshs, Amazon
18 July 2013
  • Summary: Don't buy this laptop unless you have seen it first. It looks as cheap as a something can get. The plastic, the LED light on the monitor, the color, it is just amazingly cheap. Although it is a competitor to the thinkpad, the keyboard is horrible. It is slippery and it is very easy to misplace your finger. The touchpad is horrible as well. Besides not being very responsive, it can easily stop working. The good: the display hing are very strong.

Best laptop

Emmanuel Pusa, Amazon

  • Summary: I have used different types of notebook computers for over ten years. But this HP notebook is the best I have come across. It has all the new known technology and is strongly built with a long life battery.
