Summary: Unlike all the negative reviews this laptop has received, I believe that this computer is amazing. Because I have had this laptop for two years, I think that I have enough experience with this laptop to be giving a review. When I bought this laptop, it was flawless. There was nothing more I could ask for, and it did everything it needed to. Whether it was gaming or surfing the web, it got the job done.
Summary: We bought ours from HP. When we were comparing specs, we wanted a laptop that was light, small (with a reasonably big screen), and with enough processing power to run Photoshop and Lightroom. This one fits the bill completely. When we bought it, the i5 was the most powerful processor offered on this model. Now, we would opt for the i7 processor. Also, the screen resolution offered by this model was the best available for this size and price laptop.
Summary: Writing this because I was looking around for touch panel display replacements and happened to see this. I bought this computer around two years and this computer works fantastic. Anyone who's owned it, in my opinion, is being too hard on a computer that's meant to be handled with care (as all computers should really). Pros: Despite it's proclaimed less than impressive hardware, it's fast. Upgrading to Win-8 I can get this computer to boot in under 20 seconds.
Summary: Got my laptop stolen. So I went for this. never owned an hp but Im happy so far. not a fan of not having a disk drive but cant remember the last time I needed a disk. very nice and loud speakers, super thin!. not a big fan of windows 8 yet... but slowly growing on me. playing some pretty demanding games no problem, starcraft 2, warhammer dawn of war 2, starwars empire at war. not problem.
Summary: This laptop by far exceeded my expectations! it is fast, sturdy, lightweight, and very nice looking. Very quick to start up and use straight from the box. I shipped it one day shipping and literally got here the next day and was using it for my Navy classes. I am sorecommending this laptop to anyone thinking about buying this. it id so worth the money!
Summary: Well I use to hate Hps because when I worked at a shop that's all that would come in. This one is made very well and the ability to have 16 gigs is why I bought this model. I have 12 gigs currently of ram in this computer and wow this thing flys! The AMD Processor handles anything I throw at it like games, programming, and video editing plus ripping or converting like a Boss.
