Summary: I really love this laptop. I bought this one to replace an HP NC8430 that was much loved but getting really old. This computer is great especially with Windows 7. I thought XP was one of the best operating systems, but W7 is a perfect upgrade. I use mine for editing music and DJing and it handles those programs with ease.
The 8510p is a great product and I would recommend it for any application.

Summary: This Lap-Top is a "Great" product. The 8510p is one of the best computors I've ever owned. I have used other computors in my business and at home and HP is the computor I count on for overall perfomance and durability. For what I paid for this computor and how it performs, I am totaly satisfied with my purchase and I would recommend it for any application.
Summary: I love this laptop. The 15.4 inch screen is great and there is plenty of ram and memory to play any games that I want including wow and diablo 3. The radeon 2600 graphics card is unbelievable and I love the fingerprint reader for added security. Overall I would give this laptop a 9.5 out of 10 but would highly recommend it to anyone.
Excellent smooth running heavy duty system. Sturdy as heck.

Summary: FULL GAMING CAPABLE (as of 2012), excellent, quick systems. Easily repaired at home and upgradable. From Nvidia video (NOT for L4D 1 or 2) to ATI's base video card up to the ATI FireGL 5600. Multiple OS support. Linux, Unix, Win7, Win8, 2000, Vista and XP. For XP below you MUST turn off NATIVE SATA in bios. For drivers look for Driver Pack Solutions and all drivers are available but can be a hassle to install correctly for first timers. Excellent systems for any use.
