Great for what it offers 06/24/2011
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.
