It is just okay - some parts are not designed all that well.

ComputRFixer, Amazon

  • Summary: Pros: I like the brushed metal top case, overall size, and the bottom case comes off with the battery release buttons so installing memory was easy. I like that it has a DVD burner, Windows 7 not 8, and;6 substantial hinges.

Love this laptop. Serves its purpose.

Andoni, Amazon

  • Summary: This laptop is very convenient and does what it has to do. It looks and feels classy and work grade. I use it for school, work, and home, but mostly school and work. No flaws from a technical standpoint. It works just like its price range is going for. BUT!

that guy, Amazon

  • Summary: I kind of expected more, I even upgraded the RAM, but something is not right with the microphone when I attempt to use skype it always leaves this crackley noise etc. Which is important when I spend the majority of my time overseas.

Better Than My Old Laptop But..........

Rita Comerford, Amazon
8 May 2014
  • Summary: This HP is a definite improvement over my old "dying" 8 yr old Dell laptop but I am not completely satisfied. I am not a computer geek and it may be because this is my first experience with an HP Product but there seem to be too many "Alerts" coming through and it is almost like it was pre-owned...

It's Not Bad!

The Dude, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: The biggest downside is that it has Windows 8. The good news is that you can go to classicshell.net and download a shell that makes it look like Win 7. HP support has gone downhill.

Won't drive a second screen at HD resolution

GARY SMITH, Amazon
7 March 2014
  • Summary: I expected any current laptop to have the ability to drive a second screen at 1920 by 1080. Despite not being able to run this into an external HD display, this machine is a reasonable tool for web browsing and typical home type tasks.

Anitquated HP software and large keys

SB from Carroll, Amazon
17 February 2014
  • Summary: This is a very nice HP ProBook with 15.6" non-glare screen. I purchased it for my neighbor on Black Friday and received a very good deal through Amazon. The large keys will take some getting used to if you're used to reg/small ones and type fast.

Windows 8 - wtf?????

michael g wales, Amazon
16 January 2014
  • Summary: I like the laptop so far but I am not a fan of Windows 8 whatsoever. I have had to set up a lot of "work arounds" to manage the challenges. It seems like it takes too many steps to accomplish something as simple as shutting down.

Low rez screen, lots of HP crapware

Walt, Amazon
18 December 2013
  • Summary: The screen is very low rez for the size of it, and the drive seems very slow. I added a high speed SD card for Windows to use as a cache, but I'll probably have to replace the HDD with an SSD to get better performance. HP also includes WAY too much crapware that needs to be removed.
