worse ever.

  • 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.

This is a great laptop for the price

  • 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: 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.
