Not a bad laptop for the money
9 September 2012
Excerpt: My husband and I originally bought this laptop for him to use at work. At the time it was the best laptop for the money and Apple as not as prominent as it is now. We were happy with it at first but as we added documents and programs it began slowing down a great deal. Then it would get to the place where if you opened to many programs at once it would freeze up and we would have to use Task Manager to close programs that had frozen up.
Excerpt: I have had this HP laptop for two and a half years now and its just ok. The laptop can be a little slow sometimes, well a lot of the time. I am not sure if that is because it is older now or I didn't realize how slow it was when I first purchased it. After about a year and a half of use the screen started to go black until eventually it would not light up at all and I had to exchange the inverter to get the lights back.
Excerpt: Laptop worked great for about 12 months and as soon as warranty ended everything went downhill. Hard-drive crash, disk drive break, driver malfunctions, you name it. I use it for emails, and microsoft office. No gaming. No reason to have such difficult problems with such simple everyday use. Will not buy HP again.
Excerpt: This computer is reliable. It doesnt have the best memory or gaming capability's but for web use and creating documents it gets the job done. My husband needed a laptop for a tour over seas and it was what we could afford at the time. It lasted a year in the desert but it didn't fair well with our jack Russel terrier. She stepped on it and it broke two buttons off. Jack Russel's don't weigh very much so I was a little disappointed that it couldn't with stand her 12 lbs.
