Summary: I sent this machine back for a refund. After being powered up for less than 3 minutes the cooling fan would begin to cycle on and off repeatedly. I replaced the machine with a Lenovo and it makes NO sound.
Problems from the beginning--HP refused my request to exchange for a new machine without the already obvious problems.

Summary: This might have been a decent laptop if it were not for the fact that HP had an error in their records in regards to my receipt and refused to acknowledge my invoice through Amazon.com as to the purchase date of June 28, 2012. They and their multi-diverse agents with multi-diverse thick accents and refusal to apply due dilligence, simply refused to acknowledge my proof of purchase, and provide me with the proper tech support as provided by the warranty of 1 year.
Laptop is a dud! Charger won't charge past 50% and screen randomly turns off

Summary: As the title says this HP product is another one that I have tried and tried again to work with. This HP laptop overheats way too much for its size and can cause severe burn on a child's face/hands. HP's products are not only defective but they are quite dangerous. As I said the laptop can only hold a charge for about 1 hour before needing to get plugged back in. Now I bought a laptop so I won't be tied down by cords and strings.

Summary: Pro: Fast start-up; Stylish; free stuffs; soft keyboard; fingerprint reader; Cons: flaws; useless free stuffs; Huge power brick; too bright backlid touchpad; HD webcam sucks; My dark umber laptop is customized and bought from HP for $[..]. In addition I used some HP coupons [...], [..]% off sale, and $[...] check from a CEO of some organization because I deserved it and my name is cool. So I paid like $[...] plus tax.
Summary: Buena compra, computadora rápida para quienes quieran rendimiento en lugar de diseño (el diseño es feo). Me gusta escuchar música, cargué mi biblioteca y está corriendo bien. La única crítica es la caja en la que llegó el producto. No es una caja Hp (una de cartón común con sus debidas protecciones). Sin manuales ni nada que haga del empaque algo importante ni recordable.
Summary: I received this laptop 8 days ago and have been using it ever since: HP Pavilion dv6t Quad Edition with MS Office and Norton Security 3-year subscription. Cost with software about $1235. Without the software it would have totaled about $1050. I basically selected most of the upgrades available.
