Pretty solid performer 10/9/2014 12:56:35 PM

Pros: It's hard to believe that I have had this laptop for about 5 years, yet it still performs very well, and while no longer cutting edge, is still relevant in today's compterdom. I was able to repartition the main partition and have run Ubuntu very well. There have been some driver issues but this seems an issue with the OS that did not come with the PC, rather than the PC itself. The price was higher than the average laptop, but I certainly got what I paid for. I just appreciate the integrated number pad, which was, and perhaps still is in 2014, not a given in laptops. WiFi and Bluetooth have worked flawlessly. After 5 years, everything except the original battery still works. Aside from the battery, the only other thing that I have replaced is the memory. I maxed it out to 8 GB from the OEM 4. I'm personally not the biggest fan of the galvanic volume, WiFi, etc. switches above the keyboard, but they don't work so poorly that they're a significant inconvenience for me. In other words, they work as designed.

Cons: Did not come with system restore discs that would be convenient, are easier to restore from, and would add a whole 50 cents to the overall price of the whole package. Also, came with Windows Vista. I would prefer that this came with a blank hard drive. Also, if the subwoofer works, it works intermittently. Otherwise the sound is very good for a laptop. A little heavier than a tablet, but that's what you're in for if you want a 17-inch screen. Also, I wish the writing on the keys on the keyboard had more contrast against the keys. It makes them harder to differentiate in the dark. Alternatively, I would like to have seen a back-lit keyboard.

Overall Review: This was a top of the line laptop at the time. The video card has dedicated memory. About the only thing missing that was typically available then is a fingerprint reader. Watch out for the remote control that fits into the PC. It's prone to fall out and I have almost lost it once or twice, tho, since it doesn't seem to be supported by Linux, it's pretty useless to me anyway.

Pretty but wicked 5/15/2012 3:53:35 PM

Pros: Large, bright display

Cons: Came with Vista and no free upgrade.
Display crashes and resets often. WD hard drive crashed after 14 months. Nvidia drivers are causing BSOD crashes and constant resets.
This has been the worst $1200 I have ever spent.
If I had any idea this highly reflective keyboard was this difficult to see I would have passed on this piece of ( ). I am very disappointed with what has been a very good company.

Overall Review: I have lost faith in HP. My Acer netbook is more stable and performs better

worst HP note book 9/8/2011 1:33:52 AM

Pros: 17 inch screen is wonderful brilliant bright. Able to handle harsh multitasking. Good looking.

Cons: Where do i start, with in 3 months the HDD failed. Just so i wont void the warranty i had to send this thing in. took about 3 week to get it back. After i got it back 2 weeks later some of the keys stop working. HP tech said it was a software issue. After updating software, OS kept on crashing. Come to find out it was a hard ware issue. ( HP said the Internal cable was loose ). worked for 2 months and then num lck stop working and the f12 key. 1 year later battery is totally dead, it wont hold charge. Total junk.

Overall Review: HP use to be very good build quality, not any more. Stick to ASUS, Dell, or even MSI or acer.

hp=good 8/22/2009 7:28:46 PM

Pros: For starters its huge biggest laptop i have ever owned. Great onboard audio it sounds great and its gets pretty loud. full keyboard. Windows media center remote control works great and tucks away inside the case. burns great discs but refuses to write on certain companies discs. Battery life is great considering the size. Wireless lan works great internet is fast. card reader writer. easy to set up easy to use. great laptop Came with vista

Cons: The built in page scroll on the mouse broke or is disabled. Airflow for the cpu sucks when its one a table, i had to put new cleats on to raise the back up. It is a little shaky when playing hd videos from the optical drive, but its just fine if your streaming from the internet. Case shows finger prints easily. Came with vista

Overall Review: Came with vista

DV-7 8/18/2009 1:09:11 PM

Pros: I like the feel of the key action, the big screen and the operation of the computer. A big plus for me is the ability to turn the synaptic pad off with the button next to it.

Cons: Hard to see the key ID when in subdued lighting. A good typist would not have any problems with this, but occassionally I hunt and peck.

Overall Review: I use this computer to capture SD DV video and or audio with no problems. To be fair I use a separate 7200RPM external USB hdd for the capture. Software:Newtek Speededit and Sony Vegas platinum.

Good price for a great machine 8/14/2009 7:37:37 PM

Pros: The laptop has a large screen at 17" and no dead pixels. Fast processor allows multiple applications to go on at the same time, but has a slight slowdown when trying to use alot of CPU power. The video card is mediocre for laptop cards at this moment, but for the price its well worth it. Use to save $50 more on any newegg product and with the rebate this laptop drops to about $850, which is a great price for a P8600 with a Blu-Ray player.

Cons: When you change the volume the computer makes a bunch for clicking sounds and the DVD reader makes a lot of noise. Vista, of course, is also a nuisance but you can always find Windows 7 Beta floating around.

Overall Review: Overall, for a computer that has a P8600 processor, 4GB DDR2 RAM, a decent video card, and a Blu-Ray reader the price tag of $850 or so is a very good deal.
