Excerpt: I bought the HP Pavilion dv5000 laptop 8 years ago! I am currently writing this review with this laptop.

Excerpt: Great laptop but I have one major issue, actually two: Tech Support is pathetic and left mouse key breaks way too easy.

The HP Pavilion DV5 Notebook PC is a good laptop to own
9 September 2012

It also comes with a webcam built-in, which I did not find on many comparable notebooks at the time.
Excerpt: "...cheap for a laptop. The HP warranty is not long enough either to support the problems with the graphic processing units in the dv5 series. I got this laptop for a present but if I had to go out and buy it, I would suggest you buying another model instead of the dv5 series line. ...
Summary: I got this laptop brand new about 2 years ago now, i am on it right now actually. It isnt what i would refer to as a bad laptop, it does the job if you are an average user, but is not a gaming computer as i was told by the salesman. During games, videos/movies or anything else like that it gets extremely hot, so hot that it burns your finger to touch the left side of it.
Pros: Large screen, Great Video Picture, Great webcam
Cons: Overheating, Battery Life, Touch Pad Problems
