Pros: Well, it was a really great laptop for a few weeks.
Cons: Now all I've got is a black screen and a blinking light. I realize that's an error code, I'm just surprised. I've never had a problem with a refurb computer from Newegg before. And it's too late now to get a replacement.
Summary: it s a good laptop it you put it at your desk and never move it, it build like crap. mine is falling apart at the seems. the screws are coming out and every time i opened it it broke a little bit more. this thing get HOT TOO!!!!!! ITs A DESK TOP NOT A ON THE GO LAPTOp!!!
Summary: This computer works just fine. The drawbacks are that it runs HOT so needs constant extra cooling. No sitting this on your lap as your legs will become unbearably hot. The other drawback is the #@$&%$ operating system is Windows 8. I tried to reformat the drive to install my Windows XP and the computer will not even acknowledge it. Must be something in the bios that refuses to work with better operating systems. Other than these issues, a nice computer.
Summary: It is good, good screen, nice sound the problems are : 1- very small arrow keys 2- it is not a gaming laptop, it gets hot very fast and it may cause you a burn 3- the graphic card is a bad choice
Windows 8 is great, but HP needs to improve product quality

Summary: It is super fast and works as a charm at first. Then some upgrades were done which disabled the finger print reading application. Now I have a finger print reader that does not work on windows login. I have searched all over the web and tried every single suggestion from HP support site. Still I couldn't make it work again. Beleive me as an IT professional I usually get things done.
Summary: HP delivers quality and outstanding product/client service. This is the only reason I keep on buying HP. I am a bit disappointed in the fact that I understood that this product had in internal port for a secondary HDD. I released the hatch to anchor my HDD and to my surprise the fitting space is there, but there is no connecting port.
Wish I'd never signed on to WINDOWS 8 (from older HP PC's XP!); it is much too complicated

Summary: It is what I thought it would be, physically: doesn't take up the room that old HP PC did; screen is fine and workable; keyboard too sensitive, compared with old HP PC; mouse takes lot of getting used to, but should be OK; the mouse pads on the keyboard are a pain - they often interfere.
Summary: When I read the specs on this machine it seemed it would be much better than my previous laptops. This is my 6th HP laptop. This is the first time I don't feel I have gotten my moneys worth. It doesn't seem any faster than my last HP. The light on the screen fades and comes back. This has been since I first started using it. I should have sent it back right away, but I bought it for Christmas, so it was already almost 3 months before I knew it had/has problems.
