Summary: It only works when it's plugged into a power source, otherwise the battery drains away in less than two minutes so not good when seeking mobility. There were no dents or scratches which was a plus and as far as laptops go the speaker quality isn't bad.
Excerpt: This is a good business laptop, however the battery life is horrible. My laptop warranty is not up, and the battery already needs replacing. However, as luck would have it, the battery is only warrantied for 1 year, and it has expired. HP seems to know about the battery life problem, however is unwilling to replace the battery under the machine warranty.
