Summary: I was looking for a laptop with the Intel i5 or i7 CPU, DVD burner and Windows 7 as I believe that Windows 8.X stinks and should be taken off the market. This HP model has the latest Intel Haswell 15 CPU but it only has two cores as opposed to the older Intel Ivy Bridge i5 CPU I have which has 4 cores. It is slower than I expected but the other features are great.
Pros: good display and keyboard and nice slim case good battery life and very quiet
Cons: slower due to the slower clock of the new i5 does not have win 7 pro! has win 7 home!
Summary: I use this for HDMI on my Broadband router.also from Walmart! After initial upgraades now using Win 8.1 Much better !!! WWith 25 foot Hdmi cable now have all 2060 complete cd's available on home AVR Fantastic !!! You just have to set up right !!
Summary: This was my first experience with Windows 8 and I was extremely disappointed. It is not user friendly in the least. Besides the entire operating system this is a very nice computer for the price. I decided to return it in instead of dealing with learning a whole new way of using a PC. If I wanted that I would just buy a MAC.
Summary: I didn't even turn unit on I cant believe they didn't pay attention to the stuck keys....I've always had good luck with refurbished items from Walmart not this time, they lost a refurbished customer this time and probably wont buy refurb in the future.
Summary: I recieve this new laptop three days later and i am surprise of the style and perfomance. My old Compaq laptop pc could not run games and has too many pop ups when am doing assign projects. This new laptop has unique style, runs games smooth, has win 8 but not a fan of it.Also it has coolsense so it will not overheat. This was the best purchase i made online and i regret spending the same amount on my old pc which didnt perfom the same as this one.
