Summary: Bought this as a replacement for my old laptop, wanted a bit of an upgrade. I am very happy with this laptop. Very pleased with the build quality. Structurally the laptop is mostly plastic, but it fits together solidly. The aluminum is used well and looks nice. The keyboard is very good with nice feedback, similar to a ThinkPad keyboard which I have always liked.
Summary: Plenty fast enough for the things I use it for.Something they never mention is the built in finger print reader. Makes logging in a snap. This makes the 6th HP computer that I've gotten from Tiger over the years, and they all still perform flawlessly.
Summary: Bought this exact same laptop at microcenter several months ago and its done me good ever since. it was $599 on sale (down from 650) and i've had no issues. it doesnt come with an office suite though, so beware that would be an added expense should you choose to get the office suite too. Its very fast and performs well whilst multi-tasking and running intensive programs.
Love it...one of the last laptops I could get with Windows 7!

Summary: I hate, hate, hate Windows 8 and I knew they were rapidly phasing out the sale of desktops and laptops with Windows 7. So, even though I didn't really plan on buying a new laptop for another 12 months or so, I decided to snatch this one up right away knowing that it was probably my last chance to get one with Windows 7. So, I snatched this up and loaded it with all my programs.
