This computer is a gr8 value for the money. It runs very smooth for a windows operating system and meets or exceeds my expectations for all my computing and gaming needs in a unique ruby red case and large led screen that is sure to turn heads.
It's fast, smooth, gorgeous, and has windows 8! I especially like how it was pretty much set up for me already. I've hated getting a new machine in the past because of all the complicated set up, not in this case. I didn't have to call my son for help! I know I'm going to get compliments at my meetings.....great buy, zero complaints
If I understood how windows 8 works better I would absolutely love this laptop. It took me 2 days to figure out how to turn it off!!!!! But it runs beautifully and the screen size makes picture pop right out at you....I would Definitely purchase this again
I love my new laptop. I will recommend it to everyone I know ! I could not be happier with it. buy, buy buy this product
This is a great laptop. I was unsure about Windows 8 at first. Took some time fooling with it to learn all the new stuff. Now, I really enjoy it. The 17" screen is awesome. I am very glad I bought this laptop. The Ruby Red color is a much needed change from all the black, gray, silver computers. It it definitely great to look at. I have not had any complaints so far with this laptop.
I purchased this laptop for my parents, who are elderly and found the Windows 8 very difficult
to use unfortunately as it is not at all straightforward or logical, in my opinion. I will probably return it, thanks to Walmart's good return policies. I have found the Walmart internet site and the way they operate very good.
Big screen for my wife to use also needs a large screen to read
This laptop boots up nearly as fast as my homemade pc running Linux. I not a big fan of windows and I'm sure not a fan of Windows 8. Compared to other window operating systems win8 is stupid. It has all these apps but most you have to pay for. When I come across one I delete it. It has windows office sample but it's expensive. It connects easily to wireless networks. My modem went down once and I finished a emai on a neighbors unsecured network. But as far as a computer goes this one is excellent and is very pretty in ruby red and as far as a operating system Microsoft is the 2 ton gorilla so you don't have much choice.
Windows 8 would be much easier to use if I had a touch screen, so I kind of wish I knew this was not a touch screen. Touchpad is a bit sensitive, so it is a bit of a learning curve on bringing up the "charms" and learning a whole new Windows environment. All the apps are pre-loaded, so I wish I could have chosen the apps instead of them being pre-installed. Again, takes a bit of a learning curve to learn Windows 8. Also, you need to have a hotmail account to set it up. Love the laptop otherwise. Nice, big screen. Pretty color. Numeric keypad is included on this keyboard, so that takes a little getting use to as the qwerty is slightly more left than the laptop I was using that did not have the numeric keypad. I do appreciate the keypad though. It was tough to find where to go to upload the updates, but I eventually found it under the HP tools button on the launch bar. I'd recommend this product, but I would have found it more user friendly if it were Windows 7 or Vista, or if it had a touchscreen to manipulate the tiles and charms. I would say it was a good price for this laptop, but unfortunately, the Microsoft Office Suite is not included, so I will have to invest another $300 to purchase the software.
The laptop is fast and I haven't had any issues with the hardware. The only problem I've been having is Windows 8. I'm not a fan of the OS and, unfortunately, it's not one that people are going to have a choice in much longer.
Windows 8 is hard to navigate.
I bought this laptop based on other reviews. I wanted to replace my 3 yr. old HP. Thank Goodness I didn't get rid of it because I keep having to go back to ol' faithfu anyway. The windows 8 is pretty but this I think I just got a bad one I don't know. It's too soon for it to hang, stall & freeze the way it does. I'll be returning this. My previous HP was dual core so maybe that it why this one seems so slow to me. I don't know but I'm every disappointed.
This is my first time writing a review for anything. This stylish, ruby red computer is fantastic. I could not be happier with it. No problems setting anything up, especially wirelessly. RAM and HD space is enough for the small business person or home user/student. It is also a fantastic financial deal. In fact, the deal is so good I'm buying another one. I am recommending it to everyone I
know! Don't forget to purchase a 2-year service agreement.
I purchased this computer on Walmart.com and I must say that I am thrilled with the purchase. First off walmart was great at delivering before the expected delivery date. Also, this computer is everything I needed and more. My old laptop died after 6 years of use, so I needed a new one. I found this one on sell and HP is a brand I thoroughly trust. I needed the computer for school, work, and to hold a ton of music. This comp has excellent speed and graphics and does everything I need it to. Windows 8 is a bit different to get used to, but sit down with it for a couple hours and it's no sweat....it is set up a bit like a smart phone with apps instead of just a normal windows system. I love this computer. I also purchased an Ape Case Jumbo Size case for it.....not specifically made for laptops but it has more than enough room to house the laptop and power cord, and is fully padded which s important to me. So happy!
Have no complaints with operating the computer but the case is made out of cheap plastic - flimsy and the edges are very rough. Almost like you can lift the top off the keyboard and where the cd goes in feels very very weak. I am very afraid that this computer will not last very long. Just very sad about the construction.....
It did not meet my expectations for what I was looking for in a Laptop
I purchased this laptop as a gift for myself. I love the big screen and operates very fast. I would recommend anyone to purchase this product. Well worth the money!
thank you great timing good product deliver on time
Great laptop for home use. New to windows 8 but learning. Has tutorials. Kind of miss the easy click to close feature of old windows. Maybe I have not yet learned the tricks.
Awesome product. Easy to use the first time. Absolutely recommend this!
