Ok for the price

A. Adams, Amazon
18 September 2011
  • Summary: I think this is a decent computer for the price but remember that you get what you pay for. I would love this computer if it weren't for the fact that the battery sucks and the speakers are really low. Instead of the 4.5 hours of battery life advertised.. It's really maybe 1.5 hours before you need to plug in the charger. The speakers are kinda low which makes it frustrating to try to watch movies or video's. Other than those two things it's a good buy.

Great workhorse

  • Summary: You could spend more, and not get as much. It does'nt have everything you may want, but it has what most will need. I think it is very good all-around. I reccomend, and I would buy again if neccessary.

Great laptop for me so far..ok customer service

M. Blalock "L. Blalock", Amazon
18 June 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this back in march 2010 and the only problem with mine was right before the 1 year warranty expired my dvd drive quit working. I contact customer service and at first they thought I could get help with it over the phone(tech support) so spent an hour and a half going through all of that....then she told me they would send me a dvd drive they wanted me to install myself.

works fine but heats up too much

CC, Amazon
2 August 2010
  • Summary: Considering the price, this laptop works fine for my needs/wants (i.e., word processing and watching movies) but, as others have mentioned, the battery and A/C adapter get too hot much too quickly. Also, battery life must be about 30 minutes!!! I hardly ever use it without the A/C adapter. Wish I knew that before purchasing it; I would have gotten a more expensive brand/model.

I love it, but the cd/dvd drive has never worked

cingen, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had my computer for 5 months now....I do love it but the cd/dvd drive has never worked. Did not bother shipping it back because I figured with the shipping price, I would fare better just letting someone putting a new drive in for me.

Good basic Computer

R. S. Hood "Movie buff", Amazon
6 July 2010
  • Summary: I puchased this for a friend of mine, I gave it to her after I removed a lot of bundled software that always seem to come with all computers. it took a little while but was not hard to do. Would have given a 5th star if it came with a windows 7 system disk.It is fast and easy to connect to wi-fi. Would recommend it to others as a good basic computer. great price from amazon.

Great laptop for the average computer user

Xonic "Xonic", Amazon
13 June 2010
  • Summary: You get a crisp bright display with a decent built-in ATI HD 4200 graphic card, light-scribe DVD drive, and high definition sound. It is a great price for what this notebook can do! I'm very happy I've bought this notebook. Pros: 64 bit system for under five hundred dollars. Great for web surfing You can watch videos online or play them from the DVD drive *Great system for the budget mobile online gamer.

Fantastic Media Computer

Orlando Sanchez II, Amazon
12 June 2010
  • Summary: I bought this laptop primarily to watch Netflix movies and sports on ESPN 3. The HD quality is excellant and so is the streaming speed coupled with a high speed connection; a perfect marriage. The sound quality could be more refined as it becomes garbled at full volume. The touchpad is quite sensitive making the cursor glide freely from click to click. The scrolling bar on the touchpad takes some practice to manage and if accidently hit will jump your cursor.

Good Laptop for the money

M. Birney, Amazon
27 May 2010
  • Summary: I have had this computer for about 1 month and other than a BIOS error which prevented me from starting up the machine I am satisfied for the money. A call to HP got the machine up and running, and a little research on-line solved the problem for good. It's a little unsettling that they would ship a machine with such an error however, concerned about the longevity.
