This review is from: 2016 Newest HP 17.3" Performance Premium Laptop with Intel Core i7 up to 3.1GHz, 8GB DDR3 RAM, 1TB HDD, 17.3-inch HD+ LED Backlit Display, DVD+/-RW, USB 3.0, HDMI, Full Size Keyboard, Webcam, Win 10
Pros: It is fast, it has a great display, it has a DVD (still a plus to me) and it is everything I need for AutoCAD.
Cons: It's design is anti-user upgrades. In order to upgrade the HD or the RAM you have to disassemble the laptop. Doing that voids the warranty. There are no bottom panels so you have to remove the palm rest & keyboard, the ODD, the HD, disconnect and remove the motherboard to get to the underside and insert your RAM. Just about every screw this laptop has comes out during the process. If you're not proficient at this you could seriously damage your laptop.
Other Thoughts: Why can't we have a single panel with two screws for a simple RAM or HD upgrade?
Other note: I'm not a fan of the single, no buttons, trackpad but that's nothing to take an egg off for - I use a wireless mouse anyway.
Pros: Slim, sleek, nice screen, touch-screen, quick, DVD player, works like I need it to. I have no complaints or regrets.
Cons: Bloatware - but all companies load their bloat and hope you'll keep it. Just uninstall the bloat and the computer's great again.
Other Thoughts: This is the perfect laptop for me and what I wanted. I hate bulky laptops and this one is not. Bonus, still has a DVD player. This is now my daily everything computer because it's so good.
If you're needing something special research it out first to make sure this laptop is for you (the previous poster did not research - shame on you for giving a great laptop one Egg).
Pros: Fast, slim, sleek, looks good, features, blah - you see what it has and it's just what you're hoping for, as was I.
Cons: Minor issue - Wifi adapter failed in less than one day. Instantly replaced by HP without hassle. Swapped the Wifi adapter and my speeds were top notch.
Other Thoughts: I cannot find this laptop anywhere else for this price - it's fantastic! Don't hesitate to purchase this because by the time you make up your mind it may be gone. If I had a stack of money I'd but a stack of these and resell them.READ FULL REVIEW
