2 out of 5 eggsnot a very good gaming laptop

Pros: hd size
finger print reader
clear led lcd screen
bright screen
hard drive protection software
17.3 inch screen
beats audio
hard drive size
memory size
full keyboard

Cons: cool sense
on board graphics
poor quality woofer
non raid hardware
cpu
screen
no on board blue tooth
no illuminated keys
hard drive speed

Other Thoughts: this laptop cannot play allot of newerish games. i have tried many games for example bioshock infinite, resident evil 6, tomb raider 2013, battlefield 3. only games that can run decent on this laptop is bad company 2, diablo 3, starwars TOR, need for speed most wanted, duke nukem forever doom 3 bfg edition.
i have reviewed the hole laptop from top to bottom. check out my youtube channel knownasgeeks for the review.

woofer is not that actually good i have to have the bass at low settings just to hear it with out bottoming out. any higher it sounds louder but is actually pushing to hard.

Screen is really clear and very bright. to bad this screen isnt 1920x1080p


the guy that said in the review title "other review is lame" does not have this laptop. i clicked on verified owner and his review does not pop up. he believes he knows what my level of tech is. well ill tell you what, you dont know me at all. he said to use the a-10 processor, ha he doesn't even know any thing about that processor. its not that much better then the a-8. if he really knows what he is talking about he would have known from the start a8 vs the a10 is pretty much the same cpu/gpu except a10 is clocked a bit higher. you recommend hp to a client? do you even know HP at all their laptops will break in about 1-2 years if lucky 3. i will never recommend my customers hp, its either asus, samsung or acer. their is a laptop with the same screen size but dedicated graphics card only 800+ if only i just looked a bit around i would have bought that laptop instead of this one. but newegg ridiculous return policy is once you open it you cannot return. i should have read the policy before buying this laptop. i regret buying it now. this laptop is way to expensive for what it has for hardware components. price on hp website should be at least 500.

he says cool sense is a pro, i believe he doesn't know what i was when he first made his review. hp cool sense is just a way to kill the battery faster. what it does is just leaves the fan on, it never turns off. only time it turns off when the laptop is off. hp cool sense is a horrible feature and should not be a feature. this will kill the fan much faster then usual. once the fan dies out the cpu will over heat and burn out.

the guy says it for "internet, business, streaming, music, and LIGHT gaming"

internet business, streaming, music does not need 6gb of memory and 4 cores.

light gaming? are you trying to say low end games? light gaming means i only play games some times. what you where trying to say is it can play low end games.

i dont care how much you all make fun of my grammar and spelling but at least i know what i am talking about when it comes to computer tech.

this is for newegg, if your going to have a option on a video review section get more space, get more bandwidth, and make the videos mins at least 30 mins. 10min 100mb video can be passable for small items. 100mb video is poor quality 360p at least

4 out of 5 eggsGood for what it is

Pros: This computer is exactly what it describes. It can play some games, it runs cool. Battery last just as long as it is supposed too. I'm not blown away by this computer but it was only $600 when I purchased it. A good laptop with a big screen that does everything you want aside from hardcore gaming

Cons: The only con is windows 8. It's just buggy right now, and the metro interface is bad. This isn't HP's fault, so I didn't mark against the laptop itself. Just something to keep in mind

Other Thoughts: Don't get this if you want a gaming laptop.
This game will play most MMO's on medium settings with no problem, but it is not meant for gaming.

5 out of 5 eggslove it!

Pros: The laptop is exactly as described. I'm a huge fan of the fingerprint reader to log on to the computer and all of my accounts. The computer loads very quickly, and windows 8 is a piece of cake to opperate (despite some of the nasty reviews about it). This computer was well worth the money!

Cons: The battery life is only about 3 hours. Makes it more difficult to use on the go for any length of time.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome Laptop!

Pros: Brilliant 17" screen, memory capacity, great sound, superior graphics (for laptop), long battery life, separate "real" 10-key pad, aesthetically pleasing. Of course, everything about Newegg as a dealer.

Cons: Bloatware, "locked" recovery options (only 1 set of media allowed), Function keys are alternate function by default instead of actual "F1" through "F10" keys. No back-lit keyboard or LED lighting for darker environments.

Other Thoughts: After limping along with a 7 year old laptop, I bought this one and am very pleased - incredibly fast laptop with few issues. Maxed out the memory at 16GB (available here on Newegg for cheap) as well as upgraded to Win8Pro for Bitlocker. As is standard for HP, there is a lot of bloatware stuck on it, but I haven't deleted any of it (other than off the tile screen) because it doesn't seem to have a deleterious effect on memory and/or processor. Will replace HDD with SDD in the future for performance increase, although even with a 5400RPM drive it is satisfactory. I would recommend this laptop to heavy power users, low-level to mid-level gamers and heavy entertainment freaks as far as movies, music, etc.

5 out of 5 eggsother review is lame

Pros: APU, Screen size, Beats audio, coolsense, HD protect

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The review above me gave this laptop 2 eggs because it will not run Battlefield 3. If his tech knowledge is so high, he should know that the APU's GPU is not meant for gaming like that. He should have bought one of the A10 APU's with the dual graphics solution. This laptop is for internet, business, streaming, music, and LIGHT gaming. If the above reviewer really had a tech knowledge level of 5 he would have read the specs and seen it was only the integrated graphics and known they could not run a game like Battlefield 3 at medium. This is an excellent Laptop for the average user. I reccomend it all the time to my clients.

2 out of 5 eggslow quality gaming for high end games

Pros: screen size 17 inch
speakers
hd size
finger print reader
clear led lcd screen
bright screen
hard drive protection software

Cons: graphics, cpu, hard drive speed

this laptop cannot play battlefield 3 at medium settings. it only can play games at low settings. i tried diablo 3 it runs smooth to the natural user but a true gamer will see its lagging about 4-8 frames max settings.

Other Thoughts: this laptop is fast but the hard drive bottlenecks the cpu. this laptop is good only for lower end games. nothing to intense. bioshock 1 and 2 can play just find fear 1 and 2 can run this game just fine at full settings. some times i can hear popping noise at random times when loading different websites. i will be uploading a review on the laptop soon. i would of done it today but i for got to transfer the video over to my laptop. speakers on this is very clear, the tweeters and mid range speakers make the voice sound very clear, the woofer only gives bass sounds ok on music but horrible with movies sounds like its way to loud even tho its on medium volume. it says it got game but it does not. this is false advertizing.
