Basic laptop, not for power users or gamers.

  • Summary: Right out of the box, meaning nothing removed or installed, with all applications closed, this gets a PassMark Benchmark rating of 1650. It runs very sluggish and struggles with multitasking. The Beats Audio doesn't sound nearly as good as my $30 pair of CA 2.1 speakers.

  • Summary: I have owned a large number of computers, and currently have an 8 computer network. That's simply to say I know computers and their limitations. This computer has such a poor keyboard, no one could do any serious typing on it.

HP just not working

MartyBoy, Costco

  • Summary: Around 2012 I pyrchased a 17 inch HP laptop, a precursor to this machine. The first one lasted two weeks before I returned it. The machine would not open with a USB plugged in and got even funkier. Got a new same one. It lasted until late 2014, when the mother board died.
  • Pros: good screen and windows 7 still available
  • Cons: lasted two months before death.

  • Summary: The quality of the computer was nice, just hated Windows 8.1. Not user friendly, would probably have been better with a mouse or touch screen. Returned it!

  • Summary: I bought this laptop for my son for Christmas. Initially, it was great! He loved it. Yesterday it spontaneously stopped working. After walking through multiple troubleshooting tips with HP tech support, they decided we need to ship it to them for repairs. My son is a college student.

  • Summary: For the price, this is a very slow computer which is highly frustrating. Other than that, it is fine.
