Summary: I ordered this laptop for my dad, who kept it for a day or two and then gave it to me. The pros: This laptop, which I'm using right now, has a very nice, sleek look to it. The top appears to be a brushed metal. The keyboard is spacious and easy to use. It also includes the number pad which is a nice addition to newer laptops. The processor is fast and I like Windows 7 OS.
Summary: I love HP products, and own 2 laptops and 4 desktops BUT ..... The touchpad is infuriating as the mouse buttons have been integrated into the pad itself. Highlighting text or selecting a menu option is a battle of nerves, as the cursor often skips unpredictably when the buttons are pushed.
Summary: Beware, why did the put the number key on the right side?? The left hand literally falls off the side of the laptop. Normal laptops have the numbers above the alpha keys. BUt why an additional set of keys on the right? IT causes the operator to type on the left side of the screen, reaching toward the left for the keys. Very awkward. Other than that it's a quiet, light machine with a big bright screen. I would not buy this if I tried it out at Best Buy.
