  • Summary: Excellent laptop for the past 5 years. The left hinge cracked about a year ago and it has been progressively getting worse. It's finally time for a new computer. Everything runs great even 5 years later except for the hinge. Apparently this is a common problem with this model.

neuekind, Amazon

  • Summary: The laptop meets most of my expectations in functionality with excellent audio and video performances. I'd have rated the laptop 4 1/2 stars until I had to call the HP customer service center to repair the broken left hinge mechanism.

Rupi, Amazon
