Wish I got something better, but I'll manage.

  • Summary: I've had this for over a year now, and it's been just okay. The biggest and most annoying problem is that it over heats in few a couple minutes. I'm on Amazon.com and have Spotify open and the bottom of it is so hot that you could almost burn yourself. I'm impressed that I can play some good games from Steam on it, but again it overheats and shuts down. It would be a nice, cheap, gaming laptop if it didn't overheat so bad. I also don't like the keyboard texture.

  • Summary: The battery won't hold a charge. They didn't pack it well and when I got it one of the corners was dented. I waited too late to do anything.

Stay away, if you can

  • Summary: I bought the laptop in Nov, 2012. In January 2013, the wireless adaptor weakened. By summer of 2013, the display showed an occasional vertical line of dead pixel. Either it is the screen itself or a couple of pins at the display connection, By this year, that non-pixel line has become more frequent.

Fairly Versatile, but with Cheap Parts, difficult to Clean.

  • Summary: I've had this laptop for about 2 years now. It has enough power to run most PC games out there and the HDMI out capability is great for dual monitors or hooking it up to a TV to watch blu-rays. However, there are a few drawbacks. The fingerprint recognition hardware didn't last long- about a year before it stopped lighting up and became non-functional.

Workable, but imperfect.

  • Summary: Overall I've been content with this computer. (HP Envy dv6-7210us) As a student who doesn't require much, it works perfectly for what I want it to do. (MS Office, web browsing, Netflix) It's not a powerhouse, but it is more than competent for what 95% of computer users need. It's not perfect though. The first one I got had to be returned because the screen bezel was coming apart.

not touch screen

Mike, Amazon

  • Summary: I was under the impression that this was touch screen enabled and it is not. Not a deal breaker, but to use the full functionality of windows 8 you need a touch screen. Sure, it is possible to use W8 without a touchscreen, just not ideal. Other than that it is great. I was trying to determine before I bought if the screen was touchscreen enabled, but it wasn't clear.

It was not bad all around, but, one major flaw, bad internet adapter.

  • Summary: It was not bad all around, but, one major flaw, bad internet adapter. Maybe the lap top should get one more star but, I was really mad about me having to return it.

  • Summary: It's a brand new computer, nothing less, nothing more. Met my expectations, but I hope Windows blue comes better than this 8.
