Boo

Mommy4Suns, Amazon
26 August 2014
  • Summary: I should have known better than to buy a laptop where a good part of my decision to buy was based on the fact that it had flowers on it and a cool purple light. Also I want to point out the fact that Walmart advertised this laptop in a very misleading way. I was enticed by a list of specs that made this sounds like a great computer for a reasonable price.

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.

Invest elsewhere!

  • Summary: Please don't waste your money on this pretty computer, this is the 2nd HP that I purchased and both have been a disaster. The pretty flowers is all that is pretty about it. Like any computer that's not an Apple(which my son has and has had with no problems for 3 years now) needs protection and as an adult I know not to go opening up things that could potential cause my laptop issues.

Don't waste you money like I did.

flowergirl24, Amazon

  • Summary: I really wish I would have had someone to warn me against this computer. I am a college student and my first laptop died around my finals week so I needed a computer ASAP and I thought this was a good choice. My mom was right to warn me against a computer with flowers on it. I had my computer for less than a year when I started having problems with this one. The fan would constantly run because it would overheat and it would just shut off without any warning.

Stay away from this laptop if you value your sanity!

Mrsckugs "Natural Hair Maven", Amazon
3 February 2012
  • Summary: I am a college student. I purchased this laptop based on reviews, the specs, and yes the prettiness of it. I have had this laptop almost a year, so I know what I am talking about. The first issue: The webcam. The webcam is not HD. That is my fault for not reading that in the description. However, the camera on this laptop is very low quality. A few months into having this laptop, I came across a very strange issue.

Even bad for a cheap alternative

B. Broad "Devierin", Amazon
26 December 2011
  • Summary: My original computer died, and I was given this as a gift. The price might seem dazzling because it's so cheap but after your 1 year warranty expires have fun with all the repair costs that you should be expecting.. This computer is cheap for a reason. Anyone that knows anything about computers can tell you how useless this computer actually is. In my experience with handling popular brands of computers (Dell, Apple, HP, Alienware, etc..

Full of problems

Corando Saenz, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm wrting this review 1 year after I bought this item, because it serves well to notice how good or bad a laptop product truly is. My opinion on this laptop is as follows. Avoid HP laptops if you can. There are several reasons for this according to my experience. Problem # 1: After only 6 months of using it constantly,the charger stopped working, it simply died.

Don't Even Think About Buying...

SilentSinger, Amazon
5 October 2010
  • Summary: Don't even think about buying this laptop. My largest complaint is that the wireless connection device in it is horrible and cannot establish a decent connection for more than 10 minutes; you have to stop whatever you are doing to fix it every time it is disabled. This is not a router problem. All the other wireless devices in my home connect just fine. Another problem is that the keyboard is horrible.

NO BUENO

E. Burch, Amazon
22 June 2010
  • Summary: I had to just give up my 17" screen HP laptop, which over the course of three years, melted down it's own screen, had a bad hard drive and also system board issues. Now I have a DV5 which I cannot get the tracking pad to stop hopping all over my screen, going haywire. The worst tracking pad in the industry.

NOT worth the money!!! HORRIBLE

tAsTytEmPAi, Amazon
24 January 2010
  • Summary: I bought this laptop just over 1.5 yrs ago, but finally decided it was time to write a review on this monstrosity. I paid over one thousand dollars for this, and having had positive experiences with HP in the past I thought this would be the perfect laptop to lug around when starting University. Okay, I will begin by saying that I hardly ever carry this laptop around, and usually keep it sat on my desk or use it while lying in bed.
