Summary: The product arrived on time. However, the wifi card was problematic. I tried several things including some steps recommended by the seller, but it didn't bring the wifi speed up to the expected level.
Summary: Never been more unimpressed with HP... this is probably the 10th HP machine I've purchased over the years, reconsidering future buys from HP if this is any indication of where we have come. I know it's drastic, but maybe the time is ripe for a mac...
Pros: Sleek comfortable machine. Fit and form are nice... function is something to be desired.
Cons: I've spent hours trying to remove all the junk that's installed on this thing out of the box. I've never seen so much ridiculousness. Finally moved into safe mode just to uninstall all the junk because it was fighting me otherwise.
Summary: This is just a personal preference, but I like more speed so I always buy an additional 4GB of RAM to add to the notebook. It is already at a good price so I can justify the additional cost of an extra stick of memory.
Pros: I purchase the ProBooks for deployment in the company, for which I work. I think for what you are getting, it is an incredible price. I prefer the this model because we run 2 OSs Linux Mint and Win 7 Pro and the notebook runs well with either operating system. I can still purchase Win 7 pro on th...
Cons: The wireless card by realtec doesn't get picked up by Debian Linux distros (Ubuntu, Mint, Zorin, etc.) and you have to install the driver (rtl8723be) separately. It isn't a problem really, just a nice thing to know before installing Linux. All the other drivers load without issues.
Summary: The are many issues with this purchase. The most importantly it was not what was paid for! Memory is half what was posted! Second the hard drive is also less than half the size posted. Third and least important but still an issue was the lack of expedited shipping.
Excerpt: Bought this for my Grand daughter for College. Very well put together, looks and feels like it will last through her college years and beyond. Easy set up, no problems right out of the box. She loves it.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Set Up, Performance
