  • Summary: Wonderful laptop I plan on upgrading the ram and adding an ssd. I bought it mainly for gaming. Love the finish and the keyboard light. Was a little annoyed as soon as I turned it on it already had malware but I was already set to wipe the harddrive.

Not Happy

ADMIRAL, Staples
12 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Have purchased many Hp products over years. This was the the first refurbished unit that I purchased. Looked great clean and shinny. Unit was slow for being I7. Had problems with unit, resetting when in a program. Would freeze. When shutting off it would start updating about 130 upgrades.and when starting up it would say recognizing upgrades and would last for a while. It did this every time when shut off.

  • Summary: I heard that there are some good refurbished laptops out there. This is NOT one of them! It's way too slow for having an i7 processor. It supposed to be super fast! This is super slow! And it's not just slow online. It's slow just using the computer for whatever programs you have or just looking at pictures or playing a game. And it turns off at will with no warning! It just, Poof! Shuts off!!! I will NEVER get a refurb from Walmart ever again!

  • Summary: Only 2 drawbacks to this laptop. 1. It does not have HDMI but worked with an adapter to connect to my big screen TV to watch online movies. 2. It is pretty heavy. It is not a pc you would want to tote around. It performs very well.

2 years

Miguel, Amazon
21 June 2013
  • Summary: I have had this computer for about 2 years, using it primarily for school use. The computer has done its job for the most part. Windows Professional isn't exactly necessary for business students, as my primary uses for this computer are Chrome, Office, iTunes, and Torrenting. I think the main reason why I went with it was because it had the side number pad (I use excel frequently for accounting and finance). I purchased a 3-year warranty for it and I'm glad I did.

Burnt my hand

davez, Amazon
19 April 2013
  • Summary: HP laptops have been disappointing to me. I personally would not buy another HP product. But I have this laptop for work. If you are left-handed, you operate the mouse next to the fire-breathing cooling fan exhaust and your hand will be burnt. This laptop runs hot; the exhaust temperature exceeds 55C. So why does HP place the cooling on the left side not on the back? After a year of use, the first button on the touchpad stuck and is no longer useable.
