Pros: Looks nice (if you don't mind fingerprints on gloss finish).

Cons: There are no network drivers available from HP for Windows 7.

Other Thoughts: If you are planning on keeping Windows 8, then disregard my review because it would not be an accurate assessment.

I am a firm believer that Windows 8 is only has merit in a touch screen environment. I purchased this laptop with the intention of installing Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. It was not until after I had formatted the hard drive that I found out that HP never made LAN or WLAN drivers for this model that are supported in 7. I contacted HP and they said that since I "degraded" my OS that they could not support the device and I should contact Microsoft. What a joke. Microsoft doesn't make the drivers, the manufactures do (HP). The WLAN card is a Qualcomm Atheros AR5B125, so I thought maybe I could find a generic driver for that card that is supported in Windows 7. No such luck. These Manufacturers can essentially force us to use an OS simply by not providing drivers and it is BULL. The only work-around I was able to find is to purchase either a USB WLAN adapter or a USB to Ethernet adapter that use their own drivers. This seems pretty stupid when you think about the LAN and WLAN that are built into the laptop that are basically useless.

If anyone can think of something I have overlooked here, I encourage you to write a review with that information in response.

Pros: Dual Channel

It works

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: Kind of bummed I had to pay $25 to upgrade RAM in a PC I bought from my employer's IT auction for $40.

LG IPS224V-PN Black 21.5

Pros: Crisp, clear and vibrant. Color depth is amazing! Viewing angles are even better than expected. No light bleeding from the edges of the bezel. No dead pixels.

Cons: Haven't found any yet.

Other Thoughts: I've only had it for a couple weeks, so I can't speak to its longevity. The stand is very basic and only has tilt, but I knew that when I bought it. I did end up buying a mount with height adjustment and an articulating arm for it, but for the average user this one is fine.
