I received my laptop Monday, and I am in love with it so far!! I LOVE purple, it's my favorite color, and the purple color definitely catches your eye. I was torn between this color and the luminous pink HP laptop, but I really wanted the 17.3 inch, and it didn't come in the Pink. I am a little old for that bright of a pink however, and as I said, purple is my favorite color. This model also had a little faster of a processor. I may get the Pink one for my teenage daughter for Christmas!
Going from using a small Netbook for years, I was afraid that I might not like such a huge laptop, but I do really like and appreciate the much bigger screen. I can read everything well, not a lot of scrolling, videos look awesome on it, too. It's big but still very stylish. If I were having to lug this baby around everywhere with me as a student or for a job, I might not want this big and heavy of a laptop. But I plan to mostly use it at home, as my everyday laptop and for my home business. I still have my Netbook for the grab and go occasions.
I am impressed with the fast processor this laptop has on it, but again, going from a 10 inch Netbook with just 1 GB RAM memory, I knew and expected this laptop to be much faster. I was way overdue for an upgrade. I love that this laptop has 4 GB RAM memory but also upgradable to 8 GB. If I don't wear this laptop out from excess and constant use, then it should last a long time.
My only complaint about my whole purchase was the shipping. I paid extra shipping to have it rushed to me, because I wanted it quick and before the weekend. It was suppose to arrive on the 14th. It didn't make it, and I was tracking it on the Fedex website. On the 14th, the website said that they had attempted delivery, and customer wasn't home. That wasn't true!! I stayed home for 2 days straight waiting on my laptop to arrive and never left my home. I was very disappointed and it was very inconvenient! But this of course wasn't Walmart or HP's fault, it was Fedex. Walmart did refund the extra shipping price, when I wrote them about the situation.
Sorry for the long review, but overall I am very happy with my HP laptop and Walmart for offering such a good deal on it. I feel it was a great price for the quality of the laptop. I highly recommend.
