Summary: I've had this laptop for 3 years so far and its still running strong. Honestly I love it flaws and all that is why I gave it 4 stars and not 5. Problems so far is the battery sucked never lasted long neither in charge or time I had it so it was not missed when it died, It was my first laptop so I...

Summary: I purchased this laptop in late 2009 for $500.00 brand new. For all its flaws, I could look past them knowing I'd never buy a then new computer that cheap. Not once have I had to take it in for maintenance! It's spared me the grief that a 2 year warranty would otherwise cover.
Summary: Windows 7 64 bit plus a nice screen, dvd writer etc. What a deal, thanks amazon! Amazon can't be beat for goldbox deals! It has a celeron 900 in there, but for $200 (It was a black friday thing) I could care less. AMAZING
Summary: I'm generally happy with this laptop. I got it right after Windows 7 came out, and there are some challenges involved when using a platform that is so new. I have a very old multifunction printer that it had a hard time recognizing, for example.
Summary: I bought this as a Thaksgiving Day special and love it. It was easy to start up. Windows 7 is a nice operating system, I ahev not had any problems. I would like to see a longer lasting battery, the description did state @ 3 hours, but it would have been nice to have at least 5-6 hours.
Summary: This is an inexpensive laptop, and not a bad value. It is all about expectations for what this computer can and cannot do. As an alternative to a netbook, this computer is not bad. The positives versus a netbook. Full size keyboard and a number pad.
Summary: The description says HP Webcam and Youcam software but it's no on the laptop. I am still satisfied with the purchase given I got it as a Black Friday deal and am using it more like a Netbook for surfing the Internet, networking and checking email.
Summary: i just paid Best Buy on line $429 (+ shipping) for this -549dx laptop and i was glad to get it at that price. It is an upgrade from my current CQ60-420US, a terrific little laptop bought for $350 from Staples, which i'm now turning over to a friend.
Summary: I wished I would of went with a bigger screen. I dont carry mine out of the house so I would like a bigger screen. That 4 hour battery life is a joke,but I would say that would be the case for most laptops.
Summary: I bought this computer over 4 years ago, and it came with the Home Premium Vista SP1, and it was loaded with a 32-bit AMD Turion X2 64. I had no idea what was happening when i got this, i was not educated at all in the whole laptop business. But now, i realized how much a save i made.
