This was an awesome deal for this computer, a few repairs and it runs great
4 August 2014
Summary: I bought this computer to repair for my 9 yr old grandson and he loves it. The hard drive just stopped working/but that was no problem as I put another one in it. Overall, it's a near perfect computer now with the repairs. Thank you.
Summary: The laptop was shipped quickly and arrived promptly I was to understand that the laptop was operating windows vista but ended up with windows 7 nice surprise there ... But there was a couple issues first and foremost is the WiFi driver was missing and then I checked for the other drivers and found the webcam driver was missing as well fortunately it didn't cost much to have these drivers installed but it would have been nice if I didn't have to spend an extra $50 to have...
Summary: The seller misrepresented the Laptop and priced it knowing that the DVD player was damaged and NOT the correct DVD so it stuck out cause it didn't fit. I bought this fro a customer and after a few mo's of normal usage, the screen started rolling (which was a video card or motherboard flaw). I would NOT buy anything from this seller. Granted this model of HP has flaws, but more importantly - the seller will take advantage of you as a buyer.
Summary: Had the same model for 5 years. The keyboard was worn, battery wouldn't hold a charge. The motherboard died, so I took out my old hard drive and plugged it into the new one and away I went. Back in business with all my old data.
Summary: I purchased this computer in 2009 (4+) years ago. I am not going to buy this PC in the future and neither is anyone else. But as I read the reviews (most from 2009/2010) I feel like there is no middle ground, everyone either hates it or loves it. So I am going to give my opinion (from 2014) regarding the time that I had it. I bought it in 2009 and used it until 2012. For 3+ years this PC served me beyond well, but not without a few headaches.
Great computer with Microsoft Office for a fantastic price.

Summary: My sister-in-law is a teacher and the school wouldn't give her a decent computer to do her work. She ask me to find her a computer as she had a limited budget and needed a laptop with Office.We were both pleasantly surprised on the condition and speed of this computer for such a great price. It has Windows 7, Office 2010, and all the bells and whistles.
