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
Excerpt: I love it. God has really blessed. I was first leery of getting an HP, but I have been impressed, even with the manuals you can download from the web site. I was leery of having an AMD processor in a notebook, because of the heat. The notebook has been quite cool. I bought a Cooler Master U2 notebook cooler anyhow. Office Depot's advertisement is a little misleading.
Pros: value, Easy to Use, Battery Life, Lightweight, Quality, Easy to Set Up, Performance
Summary: These aren't sold in stores, the HP Pro Book with Windows 7 is the only good laptop I've seen. I've been shopping for laptops for years, on and off. Today's laptops are junk, they are flimsy, Lenovo's are broken before even leaving the store. The Dell's have severe hardware problems and fail immediately with black screens (I had a Dell for awhile and it failed.
Summary: Thank goodness I can still get this with a Samsung SSD drive along with Windows 7. Microsoft royally screwed things with Windows 8, so having the option for Windows 7 is great. Also I can dual boot Linux Operating System in this. It is easy to upgrade as far as upgrading the RAM and Hard Drive. It also comes with a DVD Burning drive. It is AMD A-8 Quad Core. Boots up fast. Apple Macbook Pro eat your heart out.
This machine satisfied the requirement admirably and can be upgraded to Windows ...

Summary: I wanted a laptop with Windows 7. I chose this because, in my experience HP devices work when you take them out of the box. This machine satisfied the requirement admirably and can be upgraded to Windows 8.1 using the additional discs supplied. Although I usually plug in a separate keyboard and mouse, the fact that this machine has a separate built-in numeric keypad is an advantage when travelling.
Summary: I like everything about this computer; it is fast, light and has a touch-friendly keyboard. My only problems arise from having been a Lotus user for 20 years finding my way round MS Office, but otherwise would highly recommend this laptop.
