Summary: Mine lasted 6 years now and just recently got the blinking lights. I was able to get it going again using the hair dryer trick. Seen here. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=b0-A6z7d3JI Its a good laptop otherwise. Disable the hybernation mode. Thats what did mine in like everyone else.

Summary: I have one and have referred my best friend and she has one and because of how much we love ours she has a coworker who wants one as well! By far the best brand out and with it having the old windows versus that new windows operating system that confuses the mess out of even the most tech savvy...
Summary: I also had this computer since it was first released and paid $900 for it at Best Buy. Two years later, after I watched a DVD in it (which I rarely do) and left the computer on overnight, I had the GPU/motherboard failure.
If I could, I'd give it -5 stars. Defective unit, and HP knows it!

Summary: In the beginning, I was so excited about this computer! I bought it in late 2009 straight from HP and was overly excited about the, seemingly, infinite things I could do with this computer. I was excited about the technology--even before the the Windows 7 upgrade, it was cool.
Summary: Ive had this laptop for a couple days and i was iffy the 1st two days, but i upgraded the windows to windows 8 and its fantastic... i haven't encountered anything it run very smoothly on this pc tablet im loving everything but one thing .... the screen looks pretty old...
Summary: This is my 2nd touchscreen. The first one stopped working about 1 year after i bought it (motherboard). I decided to take a chance and buy it again, since i really loved it. 3 and a half years later, some lights flashed on my keyboard, which meant again motherboard failure.
Summary: Pros: - Touchscreen - Screen swivel (cool for showing someone across from you what's on the screen) Cons: - Runs hot. Reviews have said before and I'll second it - I've suspected for a while that these laptops run way hotter than should be allowed.
