I love this laptop. This is my first laptop and first experience with Windows Vista. Vista is nowhere near as bad as I expected it to be. I love the added security, as I have a 7 year old that uses it. This computer is not flashy like the HP Pavilion Entertainment Laptops (of which my husband and a friend bought...) Connected to the internet via wireless within 2 minutes, got network set up in about 5, printing to a network computer in about 15. Very user friendly and not filled with a lot of unnecessary garbage. The webcam is amazing, I love the slot dvd/cd...no flimsy doors and gears to damage. I did get the BSOD the other day about 5 times, so I uninstalled McAfee and installed avast! and now we are working wonderfully again. Fast computer, haven't played or installed many games, but the few I have tried work great. I have watched dvds and they run perfectly. Biggest complaint is the poor sound quality and the volume is rarely loud enough. I bought a set of Sony Noise Cancelling headphones and it sounds amazing through them! The backlit keyboard is a MUST! The HP Pavilions I have had experience with won't stay connected to the internet, and that's what I mostly use mine for, and have not had even one problem...I can connect to networks that my husband can't and surf well. The power brick does heat up a lot if you charge a discharged battery and operate the computer at the same time. I researched this and it appears to be normal so don't be alarmed. This laptop has some awesome features I haven't seen on other laptops that I just LOVE. Kudos!
