Summary: I bought this for my wife and she loves the beats audio with the subwoofer and 4 speakers. The performance is great and she hasn't had any problems with the software either. Having said that their is the lack of a numlock light to tell when it is on when entering your pin to wake up the computer. It initially made her VERY mad until I explained that we got a $750 laptop for under $450 and besides, she could just press the numlock key prior to entering her pin.
Summary: it is a good laptop for anyone.i just enjoy using this machine. i need maybe three more for my children so everyone would have their own. the price is also good could be a little less but for the quality of this machine we are satisfy.
Summary: Overall a great laptop for the price. Good specs, just comes with Windows 8. Really hard to find drivers for Windows 7 on this laptop. Was looking to replace the keyboard with a backlit one, but sadly no LED headers on the mobo. Pros: Fast processor & memory. Easy to install new hard drive & ram. Biometric Fingerprint Scanner. Webcam. Cons: Not 1080p. Windows 8. Not backlit keyboard, & not upgradable. A little on the heavy side for notebooks nowadays.
Summary: this is good experience aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc
Summary: I love this laptop. Does everything I needed it to do. Only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that it comes with windows 8. I wiped the hard drive and put windows 7 on. You will run into problems doing this. The keyboard, usb, and network (wifi or wired) connections won't work. Track down the drivers for these first and burn them on a cd. After you get that done this puppy will cruise right along.
Summary: Fast shipping, overall great notebook. The only 2 complaint's I have is the screen; which tends to blur out if you're not looking at it dead on. Also, the built in camera really sucks (the picture is really bad). Other than that I really like the fingerprint reader, makes logging in/unlocking a lot faster. Windows 8 is a little confusing without the start button, but is pretty easy to use once you get the hang of it.
Summary: I was extremely impressed by the fingerprint scanner, which can be used to even log into websites through HP simple pass. the web browser might get stuck a little but it's better than trying to remember passwords from various websites. Among other things, the speed of the notebook is great and even the color, which doesn't look too appealing through the photos but looks better in reality.
