Pros: It's fast. Used for business, not for gaming to it fits my needs just fine. Compared to other computers it's pretty inexpensive. Not cheap like the bottom of the line Lenovo that you might see at Best Buy that will slow down after a couple of years.
Cons: Only two USB ports, which may not matter to most people.
Overall Review: I would recommend this to anyone needing a basic (not gaming) computer. I will use it for business. It's not expensive and performs well. HP is a solid brand.
Pros: This laptop lacks a few things, like a decent-sized SSD drive for one, and there are not enough USB ports on it. Lack of an optical drive is normal, but I for one don't like that. Otherwise, the start-up time is fairly quick, could be a few seconds faster.
Keyboard has very large letters which are nice because it's not backlit, so that helps me see it better in the dark. I like that it has a numeric keypad on the right.
So far I am happy with it. I plan on expanding the SSD size but the drive I bought from Newegg's third-party vendor "got lost in transit." Will be buying one elsewhere for that reason. Decent laptop for the price of brand-new.
Cons: Lack of USB ports (USB3) It has only two.
Lack of optical drive
A little slow to start up
No VGA port for another monitor.
Need to buy a C port to VGA cable for that reason.
Overall Review: Bought this because it has an RJ-45 ethernet port and an HDMI port which are important to me. It's a work back-up for me. 3.5 rating but there is no half egg.
