Quite possibly one of the worst laptops I've ever owned

Summary: Back in 2009 I purchased HP's so-called powerful high-performance HDX-16 Laptop. I purchased one of the higher end ones. Upgraded Specs were: - 2.53Ghz Core 2 Duo - 320GB HDD (after first year I upgraded this to a 500GB Seagate Hybrid SSD/ - 6GB RAM - 1GB Nvidia GeForce GT 130M Went to the HP...
Summary: The HP HDX16 and my prior HPX18 and HP ZD7000 laptops, were absolutely designed to fail. How could it be otherwise, as all failed within 2 years of ownership. Worst build of any laptop bar none, with an even worse post-sale customer service, if you can believe that.
Summary: I have had the HP laptop for about 2 years. There are many great things about the laptop I enjoy, but a single major design flaw forces me to not recommend the pc. I bought the pc for the graphics capability.
Summary: I did not like this computer...I sold it quickly to get something else. To many conflicts with pre loaded software from HP with my security software. It was quite a pain after trying several things to fix.
Summary: First of all, I am not one of those people who would complain that the screen is too glossy or that the laptop is too heavy. A. You can get used to the glossy screen and it no longer bothers me and B. It's an 16" laptop... what did you expect! What I do mind, however, is being taken advantage of.

Summary: I have been using this computer for about 1 year and below are my consideratiosn: Pros: The PC has a very nice look, the extended keyboard makes your life easier(when you use the integrated numeric keys), it has 4 USB ports, 1 Ethernet, Wireless AGN and BT, firewire port, SD card Reader 5 in 1, 1...
Summary: This computer is loaded with features: fancy touch buttons, a built in webcam, a fingerprint reader, etc. However, I would definitely NOT recommend this for the following reasons: - This computer runs very hot. Even sitting on my desk, it sometimes overheats.
Summary: I bought this laptop because of the specs. The case felt cheap and it did not play well with Windows 7, so I sold it to a friend on April 21, 2009. Today (September 08, 2009) I get a call and she tells me the laptop is not turning on.
Summary: We purchased the 1160us version with 6g of RAM. We HIGHLY recommend the upgrade! With 6g of RAM, it's a very powerful, fast, robust machine. The only negative is the screen should have a matte finish instead of a glossy finish. But that's something you can work around. Comes with lots of software.
