Summary: This computer ROCKS! bought this a while back and the bluray is still cool as hell, looks sharp, I'm typing on it right now, and it plays SOME games. It's not a power house, will do your media playing not encoding or decoding (it can, but you'll have to wait a while). The graphics are good even after all this time. I don't like the way laptops and ultrabooks have been going, dropping the optical drive and your left with a keyboard, screen, touchpad, and speakers...
Summary: I bought this one from HP. disappointed. It's true what one reviewer says, the back cover is faulty. When it arrived, the cover for the ram was placed as if a drunk person had screwed in on. And they did screw it, because I had to remove it and attach it properly. After about 10 months of use, a letter key of the keyboard broke. I used the PC a lot, since I use it for work. I figured that maybe the heat cause the plastic to weaken and that's how it broke.
Summary: When I got it from seller I had to go trough the process of repairing the webcam because it was not working and the problem is not fixed completely yet. Big Frustration. Last time I buy something used. Not excellent condition as advertised.
Summary: I have been a long-time HP fan. I'm an IT tech and know my way around a computer. I am a Mac user now because of my job, but I like HP. I've owned an HP Pavilion DV6458se machine for the last 5 years, and it's a tank.Even with the Turion TL-60 dual core chip and Nvidia 6150 graphics and 2 GB RAM, it's quick. I upgraded to a 7200 RPM hard drive and it's even better. I used it for online school, so it was in use for hours and hours a day nonstop for 4 years.
Summary: So I bought this computer awhile ago (about one year) and it still runs as fast as the day I got it. For the money, it is in my opinion, the best computer on the market. It can smoothly and seamlessly run games like Splinter cell: Chaos Theory and Hitman: Blood Money. Its been about a year since I bought it and my friends are still jealous about how incredibly fast it is. I am in love with it. If you keep it plugged in too long the battery life will start to suck...
Summary: Okay okay, so HP gave me a great student discount, but I think this laptop is currently on clearance on their website. I had mine customized, so I was able to get all the features I wanted and save money. Mine was $560! The 6 gigs of ram and discrete graphics card are great. With the dual Radeon graphics, I can handle any game I've tried to far. I love the aluminum body, and everything works fast and great.
Summary: I purchased this laptop after reading good reviews. It was my first HP (had a Dell for over 4 years without issue). I have used it definitely under 20 hours and already some keys have stopped working. All in the middle row. At first it was just the s, either it wouldn't type or it would type a whole row of ssssssss opn it's own. Sometimes if I restarted the computer it would be okay, then the other day most of the middle row of keys stopped working.
Summary: I bought a refurbished edition of the HP DV6Z with AMD A8 3500 APU processor and 8GB DDR3. The pros for this Laptop: -I did not feel the need to have an Intel processor. -Laptop does not generate so much heat like the Intel processors do. -Light weight. -Fully featured with Bluetooth , 1080 screen & Fingerprint reader. -Expandable to 16gb DDR3 memory. The cons of this Laptop: -The Keyboard & Backpanel are clumsy.
Summary: The plate on the back of the laptop is not very sturdy. It is popped in and out without the security of a screw to secure it in place. The plastic making the plate is fairly flimsy and the one that I received with the laptop was warped and did not fit correctly and kept falling out.
