Summary: This Laptop was a replacement for a 10 year old Toshiba laptop that had cooling problems(not worth trying to fix it). The HP Laptop was EXTREEEEEEEMLY SLOOOOOOWWWW! The hardware just wasn't able to handle the Bloated and Resource Hogging Windows 8.
Summary: When you close the lid (as is normal with a laptop), the wifi is disabled. Not just that power is removed (normal), but disabled. When you open the lid, it states the wifi is disabled via hardware switch. Tried pressing the airplane button, but nothing.
Good morning The keyboard of the laptop has a defect

Summary: Good morning The keyboard of the laptop has a defect, a missing key. This laptop was bound for Venezuela. Sending images attached. Now I can not return it because it is more expensive to send to EEUU. Very bad!
Summary: The resolution was fair at 1600x900 wasn't able to try any games before it died. It would be nice to have the led's where you can see them power HDD etc. They are on the right side impossible to see unless you turn the laptop on its side or lye your head down on the table to see them.
Pros: Nice finish. 17' screen was nice while it lasted.
Cons: Worked for about 4 hrs. Took that long to set up windows 8 with all the updates. Fan is loud during high cpu usage.
Summary: The computer itself is nice, however, Windows was not activated on it and it will not install updates. It get's stuck in the updates screen and one day it took 9 hours for it to get out of that screen.

Summary: This computer is utter garbage. It came loaded with so much bloat ware that it took a day just to get it to run without popups. once that was cleaned up, We discovered that that the processor (AMD A8) along with windows 8 or the hardware, or a combination of them, is just junk.
Summary: Buyer Beware!! HP has turned off the free *Microsoft Defender anti virus software on these units and installed expensive *McAfee products that do not seem to work very well. I had to spend hours on the phone with HP's tech.
