Excerpt: My uncle bought me this laptop in 2008 for Christmas. He spent $1500 on it plus insurance (which by the way, the insurance company does nothing..don't waste your money). Ever since I got it, I've been adding money to it like a car. The CD/DVD hard drive won't work. I sent it in to the company at least TEN times, and they've never fixed it. My screen fell apart within 6 months, and I'm the kind of person who takes care of everything very well.
Excerpt: When I first got the computer it had windows vista installed which was the newest operating system from windows. It was nice, until Microsoft sent out a update which then I lost all my data. HP customer service rep was horrible and said they couldn't do anything about it. Then my battery died within 3 months having the computer. Luckily, HP had covered it with their warranty and sent me a new one NEXT DAY! The phone call was a little hassle but that's okay.
Excerpt: I've had this computer for a little over a year now and have had nothing but trouble with it. First the hard drive went out. Luckily we bought the extra insurance on it so they replaced it for free. Now my monitor is out and my local computer repair store can't even repair it. We spent way too much money on a computer that lasted a little more than a year! Our other lap top is an HP too and the same thing, nothing but trouble and only a year and half old.
Excerpt: I purchased my laptop in the summer of 2008 and I was in love with it. I thought I was getting a great deal since it was a package of the laptop, a hp printer, and a carrier for the computer. I believe I paid approximately 800 dollars. The first thing I noticed which I ignored but was aware of, was the fact that the charger box got extremely hot when plugged in while I was working.
It may look impressive, but the Pavilion isn't worth the hassle.

Excerpt: I bought an HP Entertaiment Pavilion dv6-3050 last year to replace my old Toshiba laptop, and if I had it to do over again I would've made a different choice. For a laptop that's optimized for media use, it had trouble running multiple simple media programs at once (iTunes, Photoshop, AIM) and would frequently freeze or crash. I also continually had problems getting my internet connection set up and working right through the laptop's configuration.
Starts out great, but problems grows a weeks go by

Excerpt: While this computer had many nice features, I found myself having to correct many problems. As time when on, I found many of my documents and music and pictures disappearing from my hard drive (don't know where they went). Programs do not work properly (HP MediaSmart for one). My Internet Explorer wasn't working even after I downloaded the updates.
