Mamacat 62, Amazon

Excessive Fan Noise

Mac, Amazon
30 March 2014
  • Summary: I really wanted to like this computer. The keyboard and and trackpad are much better than the other budget laptops I've tried. The screen is good enough for my purposes and the i5 is very quick with the 4MB. My main complaint is the excessive fan noise.

Bad Laptop

John K., Newegg
11 January 2014
  • Summary: I am very disappointed in how quick I had problems with this HP laptop. I still think I hear the fan running so maybe it's just getting ready to die. After one day...wow! Stay away from the Probook 4540s.
  • Pros: Windows 7 and has disk for windows 8 if you want to install it. Has a nice i5 processor in it. Seemed fast and responsive. Nice sturdy case, not plastic. Touch pad can be turned off by a double tap and has two physical buttons. Seemed like a nice laptop until the errors started.
  • Cons: First, is this a typical HP thing or what! I got this and did the updates to get it all up to date. Rebooted and got this error...System Fan (90B). "Continued operation is not recommended.......the system will shut down in 15 seconds." I now am trying to get a hold on Newegg so I can RMA this thi...

Good Laptop, but NO Office

Wael Alrihawi, Amazon
11 December 2013
  • Summary: I just got the laptop and I am setting it up. While moving files to it I noticed that all the office related files don't have any icons. Tried to sort it out but the licence isn't included. It comes with windows 7 and 8 but it does NOT come with office! Moreover, one of the buttons is cricked.

More expensive than an Acer and no nearly as good

Christopher, Amazon
5 November 2013
  • Summary: I bought this computer a few years after I purchased a very cheap Acer laptop. I purchased this one because I figured something a little more pricey would prove to be more powerful and easier to use in a work environment. Boy was I wrong.

Hardward issues

ML, Amazon
23 August 2013
  • Summary: I regret to say that although I was super excited to get this computer - my first HP - I was disappointed to find I have had constant issues with it since the first week. I now believe that all the problems are a hardware issue as we have done everything else with the Support Desk at HP - re-loading...

Buy a mac

acs, Amazon
20 July 2013
  • Summary: After my beloved $300 toshiba satellite died I spent weeks researching windows 7 laptops and ended up with this computer. It seems well made and has some good features. Processor is pretty fast as well. This problem is with the mousepad. This is by far the worse Iv'e ever encountered.
