Summary: I've had this laptop for over a year now, and it still performs pretty well. This serves as my everyday use laptop (I'm typing from it now) and it's a good deal for the price. I frequently play Star Wars: The Old Republic on this laptop and it does well on medium graphics. There are some laggy areas, but as long as I'm not running too many other programs it does quite nicely. The Windows 8 can take some getting used to, but after a while it grows on you.
Summary: This laptop is an excellent machine excellent processor,extremely large hard drive 650 hd 4 GB of ram ,not to mention it has the right amount of ports three USB one Ethernet one HDMI has an optical disc drive as well as an SD card reader very fast reliable the only issue is with Windows 8 working out the bugs.
Summary: I would give this item five stars, but it comes preloaded with three antivirus trials that harass you. I've tried uninstalling and the computer won't delete them. It's really annoying because one of them will interrupt whatever I'm doing. Other than that, the machine runs great and the purple color is even better than the picture.
Summary: I am well pleased with this computer after I got rid of the spyware that came with it that caused problems when I installed Firefox. It does every thing I ask which is a lot of graphics (not game graphics) and quite quickly.
HP redeems it's horribly made D series junkers with the new G series!

Summary: Definitely one of HP's winners! HP has unfortunately made some real winners over the years (sarcasm) with their "d" series laptops which are notorious for burning up or simply crashing because of excessive heating, whether it's the battery or even the processor or both. In this computer, HP has definitely redeemed the previous poor quality run of the infamous d4000-d9000's.
Summary: This laptop is good. It does all this things I bought it for, is able to handle running pc games and editing software ect. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because there have been some problems with the windows 8. The laptop works fine but whenever windows tries to update it freezes, can't finish the update, restarts 3-4 times before undoing the installation.
