  • A. The maximum memory is 8GB however Windows 7 32 bit can support only 3Gb or 3.5 Gb of memory. If you upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit, the maximum memory is 8Gb. To make the memory larger requires accessing the computer internal parts by either removing a small cover on the bottom of the computer or removing the entire bottom of the computer. You may need to replace all of the existing memory depnding on how much you need because the computer has two memory card slots.

We bought these for our children and they are awesome! Far better even than my own laptop which cost 4x what these did. In fact, I'm writing this review on one of them... They are fast, cool running, fantastic sound (volume and quality) and video quality, good wifi set up, just all around great little work horses. It took several days of heavy duty graphics to slow one down and it recovered to full speed in the 2 minutes it took to restart! The key boards hold up really well and they take abuse. We have 3 of them being bumped, banged, slammed, eaten over a couple spills, and dropped by children all day for months and never a problem. I cant say enough about them. The one and only thing I dont like is the scroll is not sensitive- buy a wireless mouse and your golden! Now I'm off to write my Acer review and FYI they are worse than horrible!

First and foremost, I am an electronical guru. I work on laptops, desktops, game systems, ipads, ipods, iphones. I've done it since 2006. So I am writing this review with experience. I bought this laptop for my girlfriend because the laptop she had was getting a little too slow for my standards. She needed it for college. I did a lot of research trying to find a cheap laptop, but one that I could upgrade when it is necessary. This was the one. This laptop features 2GB DDR3 Ram. Keep in mind that most PC laptops at the moment have 4GB of ram, so an upgrade of ram is a good idea. Upon, turning it on and getting it configured I was a little worried that it would be slow, but it runs just fine once its configured, especially for her. If you don't install a lot of nonsense programs and toolbars, keep an updated anti-virus, and keep it organized. This laptop will treat you right. Pros: Black Finish - Nothing shiny to scratch Keyboard - A very popular keyboard with HP (NO numerical pad) Efficient Battery - Lasts about 3 hours depending on how rigorous the activity is Webcam - On most laptops now a days, but nice for those who like video chatting Cons: Screen - The screen seems to have a limited viewing angle, in other words its harder to see when looking at from the sides. Touchpad buttons- The buttons to click with are on the edge of the laptop, I find myself accidentally clicking sometimes. Conclusion: If you want a budget laptop, and plan to use this as an everyday computer for basic computing and internet, this is the laptop you want. This is no workhorse for serious gaming.

this laptop is wonderful even though it has an off-brand name it is made by HP. It is perfect for everything from game-playing to homework.

So far with what I have used it for, it has been very good. I find it useful for general internet browsing and was easily able to install my Microsoft Office suite and have used several programs within that. The webcam works great as well. I would say that for high level graphics it might be a bit weak but I don't need it for that so I am happy. I have found that sometimes when I connect to the internet wirelessly from my bedroom (the router is at the other end of the house), the connection breaks sometimes and this didn't happen so much with my last computer. However, if i connect to the wireless from the living room, the connection is fine.
