Great laptop for casual use - not that great for graphics intensive work or activities

Summary: I've had this laptop for 26 months now. For the most part, it works well for everyday tasks like surfing the web, photos, music, etc. The whole MS Office suite works well on it. There are two major issues I have with this laptop. One, out of the box, the display looked washed out - the colors were shifted towards the cool (blue hue) side and there was no way to calibrate the display or change it to a satisfactory level.
Summary: Very nice and durable does not get very hot using the HP Cool Sense feature. Love it, The HP DM4 also has the fingerprint reader which I can use for logging on and for my passwords on websites as well. Small, portable, and light weight compared to others.I found very little problems with it other than just the standard updates.
Summary: Good to great machine...does the job! .@................................................................................................... Cccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc
Summary: I love a lot of things about this laptop. It runs well and the battery life was great for the first two or so years. I could get around 4 to 5 hours of use before having to plug in. The main thing I don't like are the keys. While they are comfortably spaced, there is no way to get to them should anything happen. This was first a problem for me since I use the Dvorak instead of the QWERTY. I had to put little stickers over the keys to compensate.
Summary: HP DM4-2191US Pre-purchase concerns over weak wifi card never materialized. Gave this four stars based on value, form factor,reliability, good build quality, adequate performance and long battery life. Typically sold for $375-400 on sale in 2012. Has stood the test of time (1 yr) of daily heavy use. Went to the HP site right after purchase for directions on using the built in "minimal restore" feature. The bloatware now resides only in the restore partition.
Summary: one problem is that the WiFi doesn't connect fast enough but overall the hp laptop is good enough for me i had one little issue with the WiFi card and hp sent a replacement working find now, ive had this laptop for five months now had to really test it before reviewing so if your thinking of buying one just like this go straight ahead you wont regret
