Summary: Liked the size of the laptop and was sure it would fit my needs for church meeting documentation. Thought it easy to travel with. Was most unhappy that it seemed to emit more noise than expected and when you are in a quiet room with little other noise this laptop's constant whirring was distracting for me and also those around me. Contacted Customer Service at HP and they had me send it back so they could replace some parts in an effort to reduce the noise.
Summary: The screen on this computer is too small and I have a hard time scrolling throughout. It is a bit heavier too compared to similar Acer product. I had to return it and pay the return shipping, which is fine. Amazon.com was really nice to handle the return. I bought an Acer instead and it was a lot lighter to carry around, and the screen also a bit bigger. 10" is simply too small for me to read.
Excerpt: This netbook is okay but not the best by far. For the record I have always liked HP and almost all of my personal computers have been HP's. I have had one Dell laptop prior to this netbook. I have several issues with this netbook. I just learned today getting ready to do this review that this model is a refurb, I did not know that. That could be why I have the following problems. I am really considering taking this thing back, if I can.
Summary: I bought this for my daughter for her 17th birthday to replace a similar one which was stolen from her at the public library. It was great for a while but eventually some of the keys on the keyboard stopped working which rendered the machine practically useless.
Summary: This netbook is SLOW!!! And it has a lot of trouble getting, or staying, connected to wireless internet. I realize it's a netbook, not a full-size PC, but my smartphone performs better. It works tolerably well in other aspects -- word processing, for example. I guess the kids can write book reports on it, but that's about all it's good for.
Worst, crashiest OS ever. Reminded me why I pay out the *** for Macs.

Summary: Worst, crashiest OS ever. This piece of electronic leftovers has done one valuable thing: reminded me why I paid the big bucks for my MacBook Pro (on which I'm typing this review while the Mini crashes, yet again). I've added no software but the Norton subscription. Anything else on the box, HP put there.
Summary: I had a Toshiba netbook for four years and loved it so much that I used it as my main laptop. I bought this one after the screen on my Toshiba went out and could not have made a worse decision. It is super slow and the touchpad for the mouse was horrible, it made working on it 10 times harder than on my Toshiba. The touchpad didn't do anything I tried to make it do even after adjusting all of the settings over and over again.
Summary: I purchased this netbook for my husband approximately a month ago. He was happy about the size, because he needed something small and light enough to carry to school. I have used this netbook a few times and it is eztremely slow! it takes a long while to start after powering up and it also takes a long time to open any documents or to get on the internet or todo anything. I should have taken heed of the reviews before purchasing!
Summary: When I recieved this cute red color small and light HP net book, I was so happy. But Very soon I was in problems; 1. speed: Netbook speed is not fast as regular computer or similar notebook computer. 2. WiFi reception range was very short on this model. The customer service said it's only 12 ft. Net-book means mini computer for internet. But Even in my home, it could not receive the wifi signal strong enough or not at all in my bedroom.
Summary: Haven't really tried the computer itself since I am debating whether to send it back or not, but I believe it was used and/or refurbished. On the desk top there the icons were spread over the screen in a way I don't think would be on a new product; there was an empty folder called, "New Folder"; there was a poorly recorded audio file with generic up-tempo muzak and the rustling noise of someone fumbling around; a bunch of files were open and the battery was only half...
