Summary: I love the laptop. I just don't like the font size changing all the time without my changing it. I thought it was the mouse at first, so I bought a new one and it's still happening. Please tell me what the problem could be. Otherwise, I have no complaints.
Summary: I picked this laptop up as a secondary work computer, and while the software and everything seems to work okay, I have a few issues: 1. The computer doesn't come with any of the disks for software, if you'd need to reinstall. I created a backup of the computer, but there was no information packets with help on what to do/how to create backups/etc. I don't need paperwork for it, but a help file when you first boot up would be nice. 2.
Summary: The Beats laptop is reasonably priced, I love the touch screen and the back-lit keyboard, the keys have an excellent feel. It is fast enough and comes with a huge 1 TB hard drive. The HP added software/features are good. Overall I'm satisfied with this purchase. About the only two criticisms I have are the look is very cheap plastic and the sound is nothing special.
Summary: Laptop is a good midrange laptop due to the A8 processor not sure why you cant get the A10 added. The touch screen is a great feature. The picture is a little misleading there is no Blu ray addition to the laptop. The picture shows it as blu ray. Also the B (for beats on the mouse pad) is not there. The pad is just a plain black mouse pad. The mouse pad is also not the most responsive i had to get a mouse. other then that the computer works great for my needs.
Summary: Cons: - No dedicated video card/memory - Intel I5 processor - No CAPS or NUM LOCK light turns on or off Pros: - Windows 7 - Number-pad - Bright screen - Comfortable keyboard to type in (especially when using the laptop for school/work. In summary I like the laptop for basic functionality. Bought this laptop for my parents and they love it. Especially after they got used to XP/Vista style OS.
Summary: I really wanted to love this laptop. I have to agree with the previous reviewer - the display is not good. I didn't notice it at first but after some use I noticed that changing the viewing angle on the screen change the colors WAY too much. Now I can't un-notice. It's driving me nuts. For me, it's gonna have to go back. All that being said, if you aren't picky about the display, this is a great machine for the price.
Summary: Graphics cards on these models sucked and were recalled. They overheat and take out the whole motherboard. I had to buy a referbed motherboard that has a copper shim to help, but doesn't eliminate the problem.
