Was the best, now it is still worth the $200. I'm on it now, 4 years later.

Beware they sell defective merchandise

Candace Underwood, Amazon
9 July 2014
  • Summary: This company ripped me off for close to $500.00, the first computer they sold me for my teenage daughter, was defective. I contacted this company, they asked me to send them the computer back, they said they fixed it and again to didn't work after using for a month or two. I contacted them again and they said that my warranty was expired which is less than 6months, and they were using the warranty for the first time the computer stop working.

HP Pavilion! Nothing can compete for the price & user friendliness!

  • Summary: I love my HP Pavilion! It was a great solid buy & a great laptop for my personal use. It does everything I was told it would do & with great speed! Highly recommend this product to anyone. You just can't compare a HP product to anything else! I love the option to turn off the scratch pad & use a mouse!!!

Still running after three years

Kiran, Amazon
7 January 2014
  • Summary: So I got this laptop for Christmas in 2010 for college. At the time the specs were pretty good. Now however they can be considered basic and can be obtained in entry level laptops. With windows 7 I was frustrated because it would take a few minutes to get to the login screen after pressing the power button which annoyed me a lot. Also it would be laggy. Now I upgraded to windows 8.1 and let me say that it's breathed new life into my laptop.

Good Laptop

Jackie, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had this laptop for about three years and it does just fine for me. I agree with another reviewer that this is a workhorse computer. I am in college and this has been my school laptop. All the buttons and the pad work perfectly fine for me and it is a sturdy piece of machinery.

Problems with keyboard

Kellie, Amazon
24 November 2013
  • Summary: The battery life is pretty bad, only lasts two hours when barely any programs are running. The keyboard is pretty bad too, you have to really pound on the keys for the computer to register some letters. I never had any problems with the touch pad. So I guess its an okay laptop, but I would not recommend it for anyone who has to write a lot of papers.

Average

Ankur Varsheny, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: Overall laptop build and performance is good. But there are two major issues because of that it becomes a no buy 1. It makes too much noise and heats up very fast. 2. Audio output is not audible with all the noise process makes. This can't be called an entertainment laptop if you can't even hear a thing in it.

Great computer for the price.

  • Summary: Great overall computer, plays games as well as graphically demanding applications relatively easily, has the power needed to browse online smoothly and allows for a fast workflow with the windows 7 included on it.
