Summary: Never had a problem with HP products before. This one has been a nightmare. I bought it from Tiger Direct a year ago. Within two months I started getting vertical lines across the screen. It's NOT a screen issue as they appear on the external monitor as well. I also cannot use it if it's unplugged from the AC adapter. The battery says it's fully charged. The computer runs off the battery. I just have no video on battery power. This machine also gets very very hot.

The APU is clocked at 1.9, which can be pushed safely to AMD specifications for overclocking by way of their latest Catalyst Control Center with the built in AMD Overdrive option.
Summary: It's a good laptop for the price. Had it for a few months now and was able to get it working perfectly with Windows 7 Ultimate, although funding all the drivers took time. The big drawback for me is the screen had a blue cast to it that makes photo editing useless, so I connect it to aneexternal monitor. No amount of color adjustment seems to work, which is a shame.
Summary: I've being using this computer for more than a year and with photoshop, corel, and other graphic softwares and is incredible, I dont like 2 things, windows 8 sucks.. I hate it. And the 2nd thing is that gets hot at the bottom and i needed to buy a laptop extra cooler mini table. The sound is amazing, the graphics A+, Windows 8 sucks, built on an elegant frame, nice detalis, good webcam, also I bought 16 gb in ram and if this computer had a different OS will be just...
