Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS LAPTOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it dies every five minutes without notice and it's so slow it just deleted all my homework from my word document because it just shut down randomly find another laptop you surely will regret buying this one!!
Summary: This product is probably my worse buy ever since i have buying things on ebay. Ever since i bought it i have not been able to use it without it freezing up on me. I have tried every means to make it work for me, but i have not been lucky yet. I have even tried restoring it back to factory setting, but none have worked. Comparing this product to the other product is like comparing night and day. If i have to do it all over again, i would think twice.
Summary: i just got this laptop 2 days ago and tomorrow im sending it back. this computer is a beauty but handles horribly. freezes way to much its not worth it i couldnt even activate internet because it would freeze. i should have bought a laptop on walmart im never buying electronics online I LEARNED MY LESSON!
Excerpt: This was a great laptop for the price. After an online fifty dollar off coupon I got from staples I was able to get this laptop for like 540 with tax. I needed a laptop to use in college and did not want a huge screen size and wanted it to be styleish so this one seemed to fit me. Altough about 4 weeks after I got it.
Summary: This is (was) my fifth HP..........the last one crashed after a "HP generated BIOS update" that crashed my laptops motherboard. This last time,this AM, their automated BIOS update destroyed my motherboard...again......my cost thru HP last time, was $300.00.This computer is 4 months PAST waranty. This time, I stripped my ram, hard drive and screen then put it to the curb for the trash man. Good riddens,,,,,hello Dell!
Summary: I purchased my G42-230 10 months ago and it worked great until 2 days ago. I now have a black screen, unable to do a restore, am unable to start in safe mode.I took it into my university tech dept and they told me it's a hardware problem. After checking the HP boards, there are a lot of similar problems with their laptops. Do Not Buy this model.
Summary: Awesome laptop, the outside dose not attract finger prints, screen is perfect, not to big, not to small. Battery last like an hour and a half.It can get really slow, with more than 1 account on.
VERY FAST COMPUTER--WONDERFUL BATTERY LIFE--READON...

Summary: The reason that I bought this was I have found HP Computers to run quietly and the Laptops stay COOL! I am very picky about laptops and I give this one ALL 5's in all of these areas below: 1) BATTERY LIFE - This one is rated at 4.5 hours (no computer will achieve the battery life the manufacturer states). However, when I use a computer I have WiFi ON all the time and I am always on the internet.
