  • A. It doesn't get really hot but I am using a cooling mat as a matter of good care. It does say never to sit it on fabric or you lap directly. This really goes for any laptop, heat kills computers.

  • A. I have had 2 HP laptops and 2 Toshiba laptops and 1 Gateway. HP has the market firgured out. Awesome customer support and the system has the fastest processors by far. I don't which HP's have worn out ont he other individual; but mine are over 2 years and going strong. I would strongly suggest you resarch on CNET electronics before your purchase. HP is a very wise choice. Mine do not get hot and the batteries are still going strong.

  • A. Most HP laptops are made in order to last a year to two years depending on how you use it. With that said yes it will the more you use it the faster the bettery looses its charge and the hotter it will get and eventually give out. I have had 4 HP laptops and all 4 of them are gone. I met a person that works for HP and i talked to him about my problem not as a tech. but a friend base and he told me that most HP laptops are build to last 1-2 years and they will burn out weather it be the laptop not being able to cool down or it just overheating from many other reasons.

This laptop was exactly what I needed and I knew what to expect when I bought it. I did look online before I went out and purchased it on Black Friday for only $298.00 and I think that's where people who are commenting negatively made a mistake. This is NOT a 4Gig; 500 Gig RAM laptop and I think that people are expecting this PC to perform at that level and this is THEIR error. I mainly use this PC for papers, excell spreadsheets, e-mail, and web browsing, you know, the basic stuff. Movies, and music do just fine on this thing too, and it has great sound and it's nice and loud. It's perfect for all of this and more. Give it a try. The great thing about Walmart, is that you can always just bring it back if you don't like it.

Touchpad Issues!

I waited in line for 8 hours for this laptop because I felt that HP was a better choice then the eMachine they had for Black Friday. I was super excited once I finally got my product! The actual device is very nice and professional looking. The keyboard is much better then my previous HP. The only DOWNSIDE is the touchpad is NOT WORKING. I noticed this when I was setting up the initial screen the first time I turned it on. The pad will work for about 10 minutes then slowly starts fading out until it is completely unresponsive besides maybe a fingertip worth of space on the left side. I am in the process of working on this with HP, but I am extremely disappointed that this happened, and the fact that if I turn it in for warranty repair it would be about a month for a turnaround. :( I wonder if anyone else is having this issue...?

I bought my HP G56 laptop on Black Friday. I was on low budget and although this laptop was not the first one on my list, given my situation that night, it was the best one actually. I mainly use laptops for: 1. Internet 2. Farmville 3. Movies 4. Various documents This laptop turned out to be good: 1. No problem accessing internet and Farmville 2. Light and portable. It's not netbook or MacBook Air level portability, but for a laptop this size, it's light I feel. 3. Big screen for watching movies and editing documents 4. Good enough design for me 5. Good sound 6. Display rotation. The display can actually rotate 90, 180, 270 degrees. 7. TouchPad size. Its big enough for me to grab a card from one end to drop it at the other end when playing full screen sized Spider Solitaire. The things that I was disappointed at: 1. TouchPad. Whenever I have my left hand close to the space bar, the touchpad also senses my left hand's movement as well. So the mouse suddenly moves when I don't want it to. 2. I'm more used to the elevated classic keyboard type. The flat keyboard is something that I'll have to get used to. Plus, there are extra buttons on the left. I keep hitting that instead of the shift button and it's annoying me. 3. No memory card slot. Although I don't mind it as much because I have an external memory card slot USB that I bought when I bought my camera, some people might have to be aware of this. Even my Compaq laptop that I bought in 2007 had a memory card slot. 4. Wait time. The laptop takes extra about 3 seconds than other laptops I used in the past when loading a new program. 5. TouchPad won't scroll horizontally. I found this out when I had my dispay rotated. It will scroll vertically, but not horizontally. 6. Needless slot for a webcam. I don't understand why, maybe other HP laptops that use the same frame have a webcam installed, but there is an empty slot on top of the screen for a webcam. It gave me a false hope when I first opened my laptop. For a laptop that I bought for $298, I feel that it worth its money.

This laptop is great. Can't beat it for the price. Sure it may not have all the bells and whistles but it's not priced with those that have all the bells and whistles. This laptop is a great starter laptop for someone young, or someone with a budget. It's hard to find a HP laptop at this price. They're usually more expensive. I love the size, design (which is not like those other cheap laptops), Windows 7 is fast and it's easy to use! Thanks HP and Walmart!

I went to the Black Friday Sale. And they had listed the Emachines and the HP under the same number. So when they wheeled out the rack and took count they *thought* they had 38 laptops. Of course they were counting the HP's instead of the emachines. They only had 24 emachines. So they said they would *UPGRADE* the first 14 of us to the HP laptop for the same $198. Great! At the time. Now that I have had a chance to review the specs I am not nearly as impressed. First off it has 3gigs of ram instead of the 2 offered in the emachine BUT it is the older DDR2 Ram, NOT the DDR3 offered in the emachine. Secondly it does not have an HDMI output that the Emachine had offered. Third there is no memory card reader with this one unlike the Emachine that had a memory card reader. That's pretty standard in today's market. Overall I am strongly thinking of taking it back but I know that the Emachines are gone so I either settle for this one, or get a refund and by a more expensive machine. Overall I wished I had gotten the Emachine. HP has the better rep, but I think that Emachine, had the better laptop in this case. Oh well still can't beat it for $198 but I will still have to consider whether I am keeping it or taking it back.

I got this on black friday,.... so far... Im not happy. Its very confusing to work there seems to be too many times I have to update and reset things, not to metion it has a window where a web cam can b and there is no web cam. Im kind of upset about the amount of time I waited in line for this product when it doesnt meet my expectiations. I though Hp was suppoused to be the top of the line... but I feel like Im going to return this to get a dell or a tobisha.

Pleased with the lap top but I guess I neglected to check to make sure that it had a port to put a memory card for a digital camera. I guess I thought that all new computers had ports for memory cards

I bought this laptop on black Friday because the eMachine laptops were sold out and I was already there for a few hours. The laptop is everything as advertised. Even with 3GB of memory, it is still a bit on the slow side. The 4 year old laptop with 2GB of memory and a 1.6MHz Celeron it is replacing is faster. While the hard drive is spacious, as laptops go, it is 5400 RPM, meaning this is the bottleneck. The biggest problem with this laptop is the touchpad, it is unproductively big and hyper-sensitive. It is almost as wide as the space bar and less than half an inch below it. When using the correct finger positioning on the keyboard, you will touch the touchpad with the padding below your thumb which results in not typing where you intend if at all. The click "buttons" is one long rocking bar. Press to the left for left click, to the right for right click. Nice concept except the bar is not recessed or raised so feeling for it is difficult. I will have to use an external mouse and disable the touch pad which defeats the purpose of a laptop in my opinion. If you are a touch typist, avoid this laptop at all costs. I bought this for $298, but it is barely worth that much. At regular price it is definitely too much for money for this computer, spend a little extra and buy something better.

This laptop is much quicker when used with Linux instead of Windows 7. I like Windows 7, it is a great improvement over Vista, but with Linux everything is quick and snappy. Applications no longer hang, I don't have to wait for something to open or close, and I no longer have to worry about viruses! Just grab the wireless driver for Linux at Realtek's website http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=48&PFid=48&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&Downloads=true#RTL8191SE-VA2 The processor is a single core, and the graphics card is pretty weak, but this laptop works well for my needs. (paid $198.00 for it on Black Friday)
