This is a very good laptop for under $700, fast and reliable. The speed on this laptop is almost comparable to my HP desktop, I can run most of my games at medium or high graphic settings with no problems. There is a light around the mouse pad, It would be nice if the keyboard was lit as well. The keyboard is very nice, keys are spaced perfectly and has a number pad as well. The processor isn't actually 2.3 Ghz like they say it is 1.4ghz but has a turbo up to 2.3ghz, the box reads 2.3/1.4ghz.
Here is the Windows Index Score:
Gaming Graphics 6.5
Hard Drive 5.8
It would be nice if walmart listed the index score of all laptops they sell.
The computer has more than met my expectations...... its fast, easy to use and great value for money.
I purchased this computer over an Alienware M11x, due to the fact that it is just as powerful and at a fraction of the cost. The computer runs flawless and has a very nice finish (brushed copper metal look) as well as other cosmetic features that I find more appealing.
The Windows 7 system rating on the stock laptop is 5.9 and in my opinion is a gaming powerhouse. This machine can easily run all of the high end games such as GTA IV, DiRT3, NFS Shift and Far Cry with high framerates at high resolutions. The machine does not get very hot either, it has a smart cooling system which optimizes the internal fan performance as well.
The machine can also run all of the DWM eye candy as well, and I have tested the latest builds of Linux and all hardware is compatible as well. I am a computer programmer by trade and the only quarrel that I have had with this computer is the lack of RAM. The machine comes preloaded with 4GB of DDR3 memory and when running Visual Studio 2010 things can become a bit boggy. However for $52 you can pick up two 4GB memory sticks and plug them in, since doing that myself I would have to say that this machine runs as well as systems that are in the $1300 price range.
I would suggest this computer to any serious gamer out there! Great price for a great PC!
I just bought this laptop 1 day ago it is great i am on it right now. this is my 2nd and it is great! better than a mac. great sound! great grapics too.
So, the features are amazing. The screen is beautiful, webcam is high quality, the appearance is awesome - feels really solid. The keyboard is awesome with perfect spacing between keys. I almost bought this same machine from Best Buy, but checked Walmart first and was pleasantly surprised with the subtle price different. I love downloading music and listening to music so this machine was perfect for me.
To say I'm in love with this laptop is an understatement; however, I started seeing faint horizontal lines blinking across the screen across the top. This laptop has to last me through college and I'm afraid to take any chances. Turning it in for a Toshiba as my friends in school and out of school say they make a nice computer with no universal problems. I put it as a recommendation in the review.
After checking into common problems with this model of HP, the line across the top is in fact a common problem.
Once again, great features, but I'm personally not taking a chance on the screen going out or dead pixels.
I have owned a number of Compaq and HP laptops and this one is easily the least expensive but remains a top performer. I have been very impressed and pleased thus far with how well it performs and the AMD Quad-core processor and 4GB of memory do very well indeed. Additionally, the fingerprint reader is really the icing on the cake that sold this unit--most other units in this price range, especially those below this price range, do not have the fingerprint reader. I deplore typing in my password dozens of times a day, but want my unit secure from prying eyes if I need to step away, and after using fingerprint readers before I personally feel quite secure with them. Nice job!
For the price this is a very good laptop. It's fast the graphics are great and so is the sound. I would highly recommend this product to family and friends.
I have only had this computer for a few weeks now. It seems to be a good computer no problems yet. It does everything I ask of it.
After receiving this keyboard would not work. Spent 1hour on the phone with tech support. Having me jump through all kinds of hoops. New product should work when you receive it. Wasted a lot of time researching and time on the phone
I love the laptop I ordered. It is as I expected. It arrived early and was packaged very soundly to protect it from damage. I am very pleased with the product and the shopping experience.
I must say that I absolutely LOVE this laptop!!! Its not too big but not too small, great picture, fast.... I just love everything about it and would highly recommend it to YOU!! Yes, you, the one checking it out!!! Im telling ya, you will love it!!! =)
after researching this model number online, alot of people complain of having lines that appear on the screen, i have went through 5 of these laptops, all from different stores and they all had the same problem, the computer is nice but YOU WILL HAVE PROBLEMS. for the price, i would look for something better.
hp has never let me down before, but this model is the worst i have ever used and its all from a cheap faulty display.
