1 out of 5 eggsPoor Product

Pros: It looked nice

Cons: The product had issues almost monthly. I had to use Google many times to solve many issues. Speakers, Signature enforcement, etc, etc.... HP support and the HP store are very bad to deal with. I needed a part and the continuously sent the wrong part. They would transfer me to several people and then back again. Terrible customer service!

Other Thoughts: I will never buy another HP product!!!

4 out of 5 eggsbig things come in little packages

Pros: -dual core proc
-4gb of ram
-7200 rpm hdd
-a real video card
-hdmi out is amazing
-remote control

Cons: -gets decently hot
-bloatware to the extreme; ends up bogging the whole system down

Other Thoughts: Basically, after I wiped this puppy clean and installed win7 pro x64 on it - it became an awesome laptop. It was a lot more snappy and responsive. HDMI out is just an ingenius addition. Great for when you want to go on vacation and watch dvds in the hotel/wherever. Just bring an HDMI cable with you and have the sound and video outputted to the tv in your hotel room. Pretty much the HDMI sold me on this laptop. That and the price being 399. Can't find a good dual core setup for 399 - let alone one with hdmi out. The added bonus of a remote doesn't hurt anything either.

I use it with VLC to watch the dvd and control the menus. One annoying thing I haven't figured out how to get around (with VLC, at least) is that you can't skip chapters with the remote. Just play/pause, stop, and for whatever reason...skipping all the way to the end of the movie.

Overall though, if you can get it for 399 you won't be disappointed.

4 out of 5 eggsA nice computer for an above average computer literate person

Pros: Excellent features and configuration at very low price, which includes even bluetooth and HDMI. I got this computer for $399 on a sale. Nice key pad.

Cons: DVD drive is bit noisy and creates a sort of vibration. But it is not that a big problem. I haven't read any review pointing out this.

Do not allow side by side Linux installation. You have to create a partition manually using Gparted for e.g., before it can installed.

Other Thoughts: Should allow installation of other OS without affecting Windows installations.

4 out of 5 eggsGood deal

Pros: Got it for $500 - $50 rebate.

-4 GB RAM
-320 HD
-14 in. display
-decent processor
-GPU better than standard integrated
-decent battery life
-cool webcam

Cons: -gets pretty hot
-heavy for a 14 in.
-touchpad is meh

Other Thoughts: Definitely a great deal for $450. Even $550.

Haven't had any problems with it yet... but I am scared of the heat issue.

I suggest you use it on a flat surface, at ALL times.

Definitely get a cooling pad.

3 out of 5 eggscould have been satisfied...

Pros: small, quick, has most features I need.

Cons: Fingerprint magnet, HP MediaSmart Webcam keeps causing problem. where to start... as soon as I finished the initial setup - removing factory installed Norton, 60-day trial office, installed MS security essentials -, I ran HP MediaSmart Webcam. Not working.

It gave me an error message so I contacted HP webchat to see if there is any software driver needs to be updated. Agent gave me a link and I ran it. Webcam worked just once then it crashed again after restart, contacted HP again then got another patch, installed it, nothing happened. One more web chat, got another link, ran it, it worked once more then didn't work after restarting.

I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with it - either with windows 7 home premium or HP MediaSmart Webcam. it's frustrating.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop at Sale Price

Pros: small size ... full featured ... great fit and finish ... impressive details

Cons: as has been mentioned -- bloatware

Other Thoughts: i don't know what others are complaining about but heat is not an issue ... if you do have an issue you can always opt for a less agressive power profile and/or get a laptop cooler

1 out of 5 eggsBroke Already

Pros: Nice looking computer for the price.

Cons: Looks nice but won't boot. Disk Manager said to insert systems disk and repair operating system. BRAND NEW computer and now I have to fix it.

Other Thoughts: New stuff should always work if QUALITY CONTROL is in place. No QC here and now, now, I have to wait for 5 days while the genius at HP customers service "mails" me a system disk. When if this is normal, he says it often happens. FIX IT HP before it gets to customers!! Dhhhh.
