4 out of 5 eggsImpressive machine

Pros: Good video playback, Windows 7 "search", Battery life,

Cons: Track pad (See Other Thoughts)

Other Thoughts: Came ready to use (aside from plugging in the battery). Ran through all windows initial startup screens

In-laws have complained that screen would zoom in and out. Turns out when you "pinch" the touch pad it will zoom out (similar to an iphone). It doesn't happen all the time so it's not really a nuisance. What IS a nuisance is the fact that the two-finger scroll only recognized my two fingers about 50-75% of the time. I liked the feature, and tried to use it often, but found it to be very annoying after a little while.

3 out of 5 eggsThumping sound from keyboard

Pros: Price.

Cons: What can you expect from a cheap computer? When you type on the keyboard, you can clearly hear the thumping metal sound on the keyboard like sound of echo coming from underneath the keyboard.
It is very annoying. This never happened with my old HP laptop.

Other Thoughts: n/a

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing gaming on the go

Pros: Light weight
Runs cool
Great looks
Fast hard drive
Easily upgraded to A8 3530mx

After having upgraded mine I can say that it is very well built and thought out design. Could use a better cooler but very well made.

Cons: Nothing much except for the stock cpu. The gpu side of things is the only part of the apu that carries it's own weight while the cpu lags behind like most mobile Llano's.

Most Llano's are low clocked

Other Thoughts: The only difference that mine has is the color scheme. I bought the Dandelion Breeze edition so it stands out in a class room full of black, blue, red, white, and silver laptops. ;)

The cpu overclocks nicely and nothing gets hot but after a few months I moved onto a 3530mx.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Note Book

Pros: -Great Price!
-Fast For A "Budget Notebook"
-Great HD Video Playback
-Long Battery Life
-Fills The Gap Between The Long Battery Life Of A Netbook And The Power Of A Notebook (Thank you AMD For The APU)
-Unbeatable Customer Support From HP
-Can Play Some Games

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a notebook that had a long battery life and was also powerful enough for everyday use. My other option was the dmz1 netbook. I decided to go with this because it still gave me the long battery life i needed, while giving me a dvd drive, and more powerful APU. to me this is the best all around notebook that i could find in the 500 dollor price range. You wont Regret it.

5 out of 5 eggsDefinitely a step up

Pros: I own a slightly different model (only difference is Bluetooth). Trust me, you want this laptop. The A4 processor / graphics combo is the FIRST laptop I have found that will run GTA 4 on decent settings and make it playable. That is unless you spend hundreds more for dedicated graphics. Very sturdy construction for a laptop in this price range. Don't be afraid to try the APU as opposed to the traditional CPU / GPU set up. It is incredible what this thing can do. I had a G4 series with an AMD Phenom @ 2.6ghz and 4250HD graphics before this. And to be honest, this thing runs circles around it.

Cons: Haven't really run into one yet. The other laptop (the Pavilion G4 mentioned above) was up for 14 days. On the 14th day the hard drive started to click. So I exchanged it at BB for this model. I added memory to both machines and from what I can tell they used a different manufacturer on the hard drive in this machine. Keeping my fingers crossed because I really love this thing.

HP bloatware is HORRIBLE. It seems like the more complaints I see about it, the more they add and the more difficult it becomes to remove it. Also, there was no DVD/CD burning suite included with this laptop. Kind of bummed about that one.

Other Thoughts: I was leery about trying the AMD Fusion processor, but this experience has made me realized that you really can't find a better setup for the money.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat machine!

Pros: Cheap!
Plays games at reasonable settinsg & framerates! (25-30FPS on Wow with a mix of medium/highest settings)
HDMI and VGA outputs
Plastic body feels pretty sturdy.
Looong battery. Not as long as my EeePC (netbook), but definitely a worthy upgrade for long airport/airplane stints. I get multiple hours in games, and 5 to 6 hours web browsing. Watched a 105 minute DVD with the family and still had 60% battery life.
Gigabit ethernet is always nice to see.
AMD finally has a competative laptop offering! (Assuming you want a cheap machine with long battery and ability to play games)
The keyboard is decent. I don't mind the layout too much, except for a few missing keys which annoy me (see cons).

Cons: My #1 problem: The F keys (F1 - F12) are accessed by holding the "fn" key. Otherwise, the top keys default to volume, etc. Many older games (Diablo 2, Neverwinter Nights) use the F keys extensively. A real bummer.
The screen is a bit bad. It's great by 2005 standards, but the viewing angle is not great. This does mean that the screen can save a lot of power, (more light at more angles means more power). The resolution is low for a screen of this size. I doubt you will find much better anywhere near this price point, though, so don't use this as a reason to get some other cheap laptop.
Keyboard does not have a sleep button.
LINUX DRIVER SUPPORT IS LACKING. I knew that historically the closed source nVidia driver blob has been superior to the ATI (AMD) blob, but I have heard that the situation is changing. Framerates with the latest closed source blob (the July 2011 release, I think it is called 11.7?) on Ubuntu 11.04 has roughly 1/3 the framerate of its Windows sibling. Very sad.

Other Thoughts: These AMD machines (Llano) are amazing if you:
Are not looking to spend $1000+ on a laptop,
like to play new games with good (but not highest) settings,
don't mind a somewhat cheap LCD, and
care about battery life.
I bought mine at a local retailer because they had (extremely) competative pricing and I needed it ASAP for vacation. Very happy I bought it.
The 5400 RPM hard drive is definitely slower than a 7200 RPM model, but I'm happy with the power savings, so not a true con. If you really care about disk access time, an SSD is the way to go, but personally I would feel pretty goofy spending $200 on a drive, only to put it in a <$500 laptop.
