4 out of 5 eggsNot too bad for the price!

Pros: Nice laptop for the price Newegg sold them for. A one day special and I see they did not last long, either. Lighted keyboard is a great addition to any laptop. Most of them that I have owned did not have it, but this one does. Just the right size and well built.

Cons: I do not like the buttons on the touch pad. Every time I try to click on something it will move just enough to where I have to go back and try again. An external mouse will improve this laptop. Lots of crapware, but easy to remove.

Other Thoughts: Cannot go wrong with this one for the price.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for what it offers

Pros: Lighter than I expected
Sturdy build
Good ventilation
Excellent hardware for the price
Battery lasts around 5 hours 45 minutes with constant web browsing, music, and IRC
Keyboard is comfortable to use, but has a slight problem (see cons)
Newegg's free shipping got it to my doorstep the next afternoon (although I live a couple miles from their memphis warehouse...)

Cons: Lots of bloatware, but t can be uninstalled in 15 minutes.
Touchpad buttons are a part of the pad, they aren't standalone below the pad like many touchpads
The F1-F12 keys are shared with things like brightness/voume up/down, play, stop, skip, wireless, etc. You have to press the function key to use F1-F12.
One day, HP will use L-shaped charger connectors...

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from an old dv5-1250us, was skeptical about buying another HP after the problems it had.
It's biggest problem was horrible ventilation and overheating. Both problems have been fixed by HP, this laptop suffers neither.
This laptop is great for someone looking for something more powerful than a netbook, but not quite as powerful as a gaming laptop. The graphics card can handle some modern games at lower settings, but I wouldn't push Black Ops or Battlefield 3 onto it.
Overall, this laptop does everything decently, but nothing truly excels. It's very portable considering the battery life, size, and weight. I'm a computer science student in college, and I carry around my laptop pretty much everywhere. This allows me to do tasks such as word processing, web browsing, and programming, while I leave heavy gaming to my desktop.
Finally, I would recommend it to anyone looking for something portable, yet fast enough to do normal tasks. It would be hard to beat this price.
