Summary: Conservative I am. I want reliable function. My 3 Dell D510s are now about 8 years old and starting to faulter. My nephew said HP is the way to go. Researching reliability was conflicting but thought I would give HP a shot. This is a lower level notebook which is fine.
Trackpad very buggy and battery horrible. Can't use iTunes and browse the web at the same time.

Summary: Trackpad works on and off. Ended up getting a USB mouse. Battery lasts 2 hours max out of the box, and loses battery capacity quickly. iTunes and a web page open at the same time? Only if you want it to sound like a skipping CD. It's a buggy computer, but it's cheap.
Summary: The hp g56 122us is a good computer. Sometimes its slow, I like the design of the laptop. The battery life is ok 4 hours. I like how the ac adapter plug is on the side. There is no camera card port overall It is a good laptop.
Summary: I bought this laptop during Black Friday for $300 I figured it was a good deal for a nice laptop. Overall it's a nice laptop but there is a few minor setbacks. First, the clicker is hard to click and it takes quite a while getting used to.
Excerpt: This laptop did not live up to my standards at all. It’s not a cheap laptop, but definitely something you would want to get if you were on a budget. I however, did not know any better while purchasing this laptop, and did not decide to do any research …
Good budget laptop with some nice features as long as it works

Summary: For the TLDR types skip to the last paragraph. Just days before black friday my old laptop elected to die. Given the timing and my available fundage at the time, a good deal outweighed a top-end machine. At $379.99 with a $50 mail-in this was the bargain I was looking for.
Summary: Laptop arrived in bubble wrap. Wouldn't switch on. Spent hours to make it work even purchasing a new power supply and battery. The only way I could get it to work was by taking the battery out and putting it back in! Returned the goods at my own cost as Amazon didn't give me a return slip.
