Summary: with Weak CPU, upgrade to 4GB of RAM is useless... Overall, I think this laptop is very nice for the price.
Pros: I bought this laptop when HP still promoting a $50 rebate to make it $500. The laptop is very portable, light, and LED screen very bright and graphic is awsome when playing Videos. The fan is not as loud as previous viewers have posted. It is kinda hot only when having it on my laps... But it is ...
Cons: It's kinda lagging when playing youtube videos or any type of flash videos online because of a weak CPU. Battery is only 3.0 hour(ish). 2 RAM slots but only can use one... 4GB of RAM is too expensive...
Summary: My grandson just loves this small 12.5 inch Hewlett-Packard laptop. We gave it to him for his birthday. The price was very reasonable. It is very easy for him to transport to and from class. He is very please with it's performance.
Summary: Just bought this laptop at staples after returning a sorry excuse for a laptop a 10.1 inch dell inspirion laptop. This laptop looks awesome, is fast and does everything one would want in a lightweight, stylish package. You can buy it at staples for $599.
Summary: [...] I use laptops as desktops and connect it to a full keyboard and mouse. It's fast for what I do and has a very nice picture. But I use google docs and such, so it's mostly like a netbook to me.
Summary: I think this should be categorized as one of the first ultrabooks ever. Its really slim. Its been some years since I bought it and I changed some HDs and the silver painting started to come off already. I am using a SSD with it today and it seens to gain speed again.
Summary: This laptop hit the sweet spot for me. I had a netbook, the MSI Wind, and it was great for what it was. However, the 1024x600 screen size was a constant issue for me..many programs weren't really happy with that resolution. My eyes are fine, and screen size isn't an issue, but the resolution was.
Summary: In the course of the past 12 years I have used 8 different laptown computers for work. The brands include Gateway, IBM, Compaq in the early days and within the last few years primarily Dell. My last work computer was a Dell Latitude 600 which I really liked, primarily for it's size.
Summary: Bought the DV2 for about 700 2 months ago, and am pleased to say that this little notebook performs quite admirably, all things considered. The Neo surprised me with astounding speed - for a single core processor.
Summary: To me, it's just the right combination of power, portability, and features. This laptop is positioned perfectly between a netbook (which costs half as much) and an ultraportable (which costs twice as much). It looks a lot like a netbook, except it's not a netbook.
