5 out of 5 eggsPretty solid performer

Pros: It's hard to believe that I have had this laptop for about 5 years, yet it still performs very well, and while no longer cutting edge, is still relevant in today's compterdom. I was able to repartition the main partition and have run Ubuntu very well. There have been some driver issues but this seems an issue with the OS that did not come with the PC, rather than the PC itself. The price was higher than the average laptop, but I certainly got what I paid for. I just appreciate the integrated number pad, which was, and perhaps still is in 2014, not a given in laptops. WiFi and Bluetooth have worked flawlessly. After 5 years, everything except the original battery still works. Aside from the battery, the only other thing that I have replaced is the memory. I maxed it out to 8 GB from the OEM 4. I'm personally not the biggest fan of the galvanic volume, WiFi, etc. switches above the keyboard, but they don't work so poorly that they're a significant inconvenience for me. In other words, they work as designed.

Cons: Did not come with system restore discs that would be convenient, are easier to restore from, and would add a whole 50 cents to the overall price of the whole package. Also, came with Windows Vista. I would prefer that this came with a blank hard drive. Also, if the subwoofer works, it works intermittently. Otherwise the sound is very good for a laptop. A little heavier than a tablet, but that's what you're in for if you want a 17-inch screen. Also, I wish the writing on the keys on the keyboard had more contrast against the keys. It makes them harder to differentiate in the dark. Alternatively, I would like to have seen a back-lit keyboard.

Other Thoughts: This was a top of the line laptop at the time. The video card has dedicated memory. About the only thing missing that was typically available then is a fingerprint reader. Watch out for the remote control that fits into the PC. It's prone to fall out and I have almost lost it once or twice, tho, since it doesn't seem to be supported by Linux, it's pretty useless to me anyway.

2 out of 5 eggsPretty but wicked

Pros: Large, bright display

Cons: Came with Vista and no free upgrade.
Display crashes and resets often. WD hard drive crashed after 14 months. Nvidia drivers are causing BSOD crashes and constant resets.
This has been the worst $1200 I have ever spent.
If I had any idea this highly reflective keyboard was this difficult to see I would have passed on this piece of ( ). I am very disappointed with what has been a very good company.

Other Thoughts: I have lost faith in HP. My Acer netbook is more stable and performs better

1 out of 5 eggsworst HP note book

Pros: 17 inch screen is wonderful brilliant bright. Able to handle harsh multitasking. Good looking.

Cons: Where do i start, with in 3 months the HDD failed. Just so i wont void the warranty i had to send this thing in. took about 3 week to get it back. After i got it back 2 weeks later some of the keys stop working. HP tech said it was a software issue. After updating software, OS kept on crashing. Come to find out it was a hard ware issue. ( HP said the Internal cable was loose ). worked for 2 months and then num lck stop working and the f12 key. 1 year later battery is totally dead, it wont hold charge. Total junk.

Other Thoughts: HP use to be very good build quality, not any more. Stick to ASUS, Dell, or even MSI or acer.

5 out of 5 eggshp=good

Pros: For starters its huge biggest laptop i have ever owned. Great onboard audio it sounds great and its gets pretty loud. full keyboard. Windows media center remote control works great and tucks away inside the case. burns great discs but refuses to write on certain companies discs. Battery life is great considering the size. Wireless lan works great internet is fast. card reader writer. easy to set up easy to use. great laptop Came with vista

Cons: The built in page scroll on the mouse broke or is disabled. Airflow for the cpu sucks when its one a table, i had to put new cleats on to raise the back up. It is a little shaky when playing hd videos from the optical drive, but its just fine if your streaming from the internet. Case shows finger prints easily. Came with vista

Other Thoughts: Came with vista

5 out of 5 eggsDV-7

Pros: I like the feel of the key action, the big screen and the operation of the computer. A big plus for me is the ability to turn the synaptic pad off with the button next to it.

Cons: Hard to see the key ID when in subdued lighting. A good typist would not have any problems with this, but occassionally I hunt and peck.

Other Thoughts: I use this computer to capture SD DV video and or audio with no problems. To be fair I use a separate 7200RPM external USB hdd for the capture. Software:Newtek Speededit and Sony Vegas platinum.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: I bought this for my husband to run Dragon Dictate, text-to-speech, WoW, and much more. It runs smoothly with no issues. Beautiful!

Cons: You do not get a free upgrade to Windows 7 and the keyboard does not light up like my Dell.

5 out of 5 eggsGood price for a great machine

Pros: The laptop has a large screen at 17" and no dead pixels. Fast processor allows multiple applications to go on at the same time, but has a slight slowdown when trying to use alot of CPU power. The video card is mediocre for laptop cards at this moment, but for the price its well worth it. Use to save $50 more on any newegg product and with the rebate this laptop drops to about $850, which is a great price for a P8600 with a Blu-Ray player.

Cons: When you change the volume the computer makes a bunch for clicking sounds and the DVD reader makes a lot of noise. Vista, of course, is also a nuisance but you can always find Windows 7 Beta floating around.

Other Thoughts: Overall, for a computer that has a P8600 processor, 4GB DDR2 RAM, a decent video card, and a Blu-Ray reader the price tag of $850 or so is a very good deal.

4 out of 5 eggsbad luck, but good laptop

Pros: This laptop is amazing for gaming and movies. It's performance has exceeded past my expectations. the speakers on it don't sound half bad either. the dual core 2.4GHz is amazing and can multi task like a champ.

Cons: The keyboard is very shiny thus making it a little difficult to see but that really isn't a big problem.

Other Thoughts: this was just bad luck for me but when i got it, I had to send it to hp and they had to replace the system board and reimage the hard drive but that's just bad luck for me.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointment

Pros: I've been a fan of HP for many years. I've owned several HP laptops previous to this one, and none of them have had more than a minor issue or two. The last one lasted for over 5 years and was still running even though half of it was burned up inside. HP has always done great for me ... until this time.

Pros include:
Does most of what it says it will do.

Big, bright screen.
Lots of extras.

I should also mention that if I were to give this rating based solely on Newegg, it would be a definite SIX stars. They are great, and I'll be a customer for life.
Newegg replaced the first one when the hard drive failed, and when the price dropped on this laptop just a day or two after I purchased it, they refunded the difference to me.

Cons: Now the unfortunate part.

I've now had two of these, the first one had the same problem this one does. But the Harddrive died and it had to be replaced. I was hoping the new one wouldn't have the same issue, but it does.
There is a major issue with the sound/video drivers.
My computer stutters, slows down to a crawl, the audio pops and crackles, and just generally doesn't work right when I try to display video or listen to audio. It has something to do with the drivers, and/or incompatible programs with the 64bit operating. I called HP to work on it, and they tried to help, but had no real idea what to do.
There are no audio drivers to download from their site for this model. If I can't find a way to fix this, the computer will basically be junk. I'm very very very disappointed that an HP would have such a huge incompatibility without any idea about how to fix the problem.

Other Thoughts: This problem must not be on all of them because I've only seen a handful of other people mention the same problem.
When I restart the computer it doesn't have a problem for awhile, but then it starts again, so I have a good idea about how nice a computer it can be when it's not slowed down to a crawl and stuttering every second.
It sure looks like a great computer if I could ever get it to run properly, but I'm about fed up with it.
I've been in the IT field now for over a decade. I've tried everything that you could think of to fix this problem and it still persists.
Very sad.
