After a year ( out of warranty ) battery battery going bad.
27 June 2011
Summary: Battery going bad. Though fully charged, computer will totally shut down without warning. Click on Battery icon at the bottom you'll get a message" consider replacing battery" Not what I expected , this is my first HP laptop, will never buy HP again.
Summary: I purchased this computer in February of this year. It was a great buy and worked extremely well until about two months ago. It started overheating and shutting down at least 3 or 4 times a month. In the last week it has crashed daily up to almost four times in one day.
Summary: Design needs improvement, January 19, 2010 By D. D. Umstot "teka3" (Seattle, WA USA) - See all my reviews I bought this computer thinking it would offer hi-def capability, but it does not. It does offer an HDMI connection which I have not tried. There is no ability to play blu-ray dvds.
Summary: Bought this machine to replace my 4.5 year-old HP laptop. Big disappointment! First, it is overpriced. Second, the display tends to be on the dark side. The battery life is a joke--3 hours, max, and that's without watching videos, ripping/burning, gaming, music, etc.
