a laptop like this is probably not going to stand newer software

Summary: The laptop worked appropriately when new. With time and after updates and software installed, it started running slower and slower. Of course, after three years, a laptop like this is probably not going to stand newer software.
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.
Summary: I've had this laptop just under 3 years now and have another one on the way from Amazon. As has probably been said by some others, my battery crapped out in under a year. Clearly some of the cells die out around that time.
Summary: Be aware of the complaints of others regarding this item: The internal microphone usually doesn't work, the batteries don't last very long (both short work time and failure complaints), the painted characters on the keyboard keys wear off quickly, and the major problem of over-heating.

Summary: I purchased my machine a year and a half ago. The only problem I have had with it is that a piece of popcorn got stuck under a key and I had to send it to Hewlett Packard where they replaced the keyboard and had the unit back to me within a week!!
Summary: I received this laptop as a present from my mother for my birthday in february 2010. It was a great laptop but it developed cons pros: windows 7, wide screen, good for watching movies, three usb slots and built in camera which was also good. Runs pretty fast and is easy to function with.
Summary: Compré ésta notebook hace un año. A la semana de tenerla, el pin interno de la conexión de la fuente a la notebook se partió, cosa más que rara, pensé. Como estamos en Argentina y la compra fue hecha en los Estados Unidos, resultaba más que complicado hacer valer la garantía y optamos por comprar el...

Summary: Price was good $441 incl tax at office depot. However reading about the mic problems I went ahead and canceled my order. I wanted this laptop for use with skype/webcam. If Mic does not work, not much of a use. I do hope the reviewers who posted about mic problems here were/are genuine.
