    Great for everyday use

    Posted .

    Kso originally I wanted to purchase the Toshiba satilite online, but I walked into bestbuy today and bought this. I've done my share of research trying to find the right lato at a rght price and believe it or not I don't regret ending up with this one. It's fast, fairly attractive, and picks up wifi signal better than my other laptop. I can't believe it. The keys are alright. I'm still trying to get used to it. But this laptop is too good for the price!! At first I disliked it and I assumed it was slow and couldn't reach the same level as my other laptop but however it has proven me wrong. If you need a laptop just for everyday use and even some temperary use I totally recommend this. Also you get the antivirus software at $19.99. Anyways the casing is nice. This screen looks good. It isn't slow and annoying, its wifi ability is beyond. My other laptop is using the sam wifi network but the signal is fair while the signal on this one is excellent. This laptop totally proved me wrong. The fan is quiet and it doesn't heat up at all, which is pretty much awesome. I just prefer the keyboard on my other hp laptop and touch pad. But whatever I'll get used to it. Buy it if you're on a budget and need something that can get you through the day.

    Outstanding Value

    Posted .

    I have owned so many laptops that I lost count- from high end to cheapies. For my summer help, I usually buy cheaper priced laptops because I need to keep my overhead down. I had bought another well-known brand for this exact price, and it had a faulty WLAN card out of the box. The plastic was brittle and the keyboard felt like a toy. Rather than wait two weeks for warranty service, I bought this for my employee to use, because a backup laptop is a good thing to have around. Let me tell you- this is built like a laptop twice the price. The keyboard is great for this price point, the mousepad is not overly sensitive, and it runs fast and quiet. Unlike other companies who give you a 60 day trial for MS Office, you get Office Starter for free. No need to get a license for Word or Excel! I can assure you will not find a better new laptop in this price range. Trust me, I have tried them all.

    Good for the price

    Posted .

    I just bought this a couple days ago, so I will re-review it again after I have had it for some time to be fair. The first things I have noticed about it is that the track pad doesn't always respond right away. I'm not sure why they made it the texture it is, but it takes some getting used to. I prefer the smooth texture to the rough one. Also, I do not like the mouse buttons, they feel cheaply made and I wonder how long before one of them breaks. The keyboard is also rather cheaply made, but I knew how it was before I bought it. I usually buy the higher end laptops, but since I was buying this for my son, I feel that it was a good deal for the price. He seems to be enjoying it and has watched a movie on it, and played an online game.

    Great cheap laptop

    Posted .

    I bought this laptop over the cheaper compaq and I am glad that I did. I use this laptop to keep me occupied during my overnight shifts, using netflix, facebook, online games etc. etc. By day I this laptop is a work horse, allowing me to use quick books over a remote server, hooked up to a separate monitor allowing me to expand my desktop over the two screens helping me to maximize my speed and proficiency, or allowing me to slack off a little more by watching netflix on one screen and working on my laptops. Great buy I would recommend it to anyone. For those of you looking else where because of the reviews on the keyboard and mouse pad, don't, those people must have forgott how much they spent.

    Finally.... a decent laptop at a great price!!

    Posted .

    I initially purchased the Toshiba - Satellite Laptop with Intel® Core™ i3 Processor that was on sale for $379; which just happened to be a piece of junk. After owning that laptop for 3 days I knew I could not keep it. I returned it for this one and must say so far I am very pleased and it was even 50 bucks less. I can honestly say I have yet to find a con. The speakers are decent, nice screen and the speed is as good as to be expected for a low end computer. The mouse pad is a little tricky, however I think it's just a matter of getting use to. There is no side number keys to the left, but once again.... no biggie for me. If you're looking for a computer for back to school or just for casual use I would say this is the perfect computer at the perfect price. I am very happy with my purchase.... yay me!

    Great System

    Posted .

    Through work, I have used MAC's for 15 years. I was EXTREMELY nervous about getting a PC, as even though I am computer literate, I had no prior experience with any of the Windows OS. I needed an inexpensive, yet quality laptop for home. This computer was it. For the price (349) there is no other machine that comes close. I have done extensive research on HP systems, and this laptop is phenominal. All my fears of Windows was put aside the minute I turned it on, as Windows walks you through everything. The only drawback, if I need to list one, is that the mouse pad and the right and left buttons seem a little less than high quality, however it is just something to get used to.

    COOL laptop

    Posted .

    Just got it last night. From what I have read this uses an AMD E processor which has graphics on the processor instead of a separate card. I didn't how how much difference that would make on the heat generated by the laptop. IMHO it makes a BIG difference. After a few hours of use, it was only barely warm in one small area on bottom. Much different than last laptop I had. Otherwise seems to be an ok machine. Keyboard does seem cheap, but I suppose will serve as long as not pounded on. Track area does have a rough texture, but I kind of like it better than smooth, just personal preference.

    Can't beat deal!

    Posted .

    I purchased this laptop at the end of June after extensive research. Before this I was using a 2 yr old Acer mini which could no longer hold a charge, the USB ports didn't work at all, downloading and trying to save anything was risky, and the speakers were shot. About the only thing it was really good for was very basic internet use. I set out to find the cheapest (under $500) laptop that had at least the following specs.- 15.6" in. screen, DVD drive, and sufficient memory for documents, and a fast processor because I attend college online. This laptop was perfect. The first week it ran slow, and my Netflix crashed. I was worried I may have made the wrong choice, but I found out it was the anti-spyware I had downloaded. I reset the laptop to factory settings, and now use my Media Center for Netflix. I've had 0 problems since.n Battery life is great and speakers are decent.

    great laptop!!!

    Posted .

    this laptop is awesome. the led sceen is bright and sharp. the touch pad is textured a bit, but not to the point that you would hate it. its pretty close to the smooth pad. I don't know why people complain about the keyboard being cheap. it works great to me. this laptop is also great for gaming. I purchased this laptop today and love it. I bought lego star wars the clone wars and plants vs zombies and it plays very good. the is no studdering while playing these games maxed out. the primary purpose for buy this laptop is for gaming and internet surfing. if you are planning to buy a laptop, give this a try you wno't be disapointed. the only downside to this laptop is that the internal speakers are low, even when you turn up the volume all the way up. but you can use some headphones and the sound is very loud.all in all great product. A++++ all the way

    A perfect first computer.

    Posted .

    I am a high school student and I just signed up for two online classes. I bought this laptop to make things easier than using school or family computers. I am impressed with it's size, the value (go Best Buy!), the speed (I reccommend Google Chrome), the "look" (stylish as anything), just about everything!! (and school hasn't even started!) The single problem I had was connecting it to a printer, but I think that's my printers fault. I reccommend this to anyone, it's portable, lightweight, sleek...PERFECT. I've had the laptop for a little over a month and I am wowed by it. I reccommend this over any other laptop, especially for students.

    Excellent Laptop, great price

    Posted .

    I primarily purchased this laptop to accompany me on my trip of a lifetime to Alaska. It worked perfectly in all the many situations that I found myself and it was easy to use and connect in my travels. It was an fast and easy repository for my 1000+ pictures and enabled me to keep a journal and share my thoughts and pictures as I traveled. The only negative I can think of is that it is rather heavy to lug across the country, but to offset that it is also a very sturdy model and handled all planes, trains and buses that it accompanied me on. I highly recommend it. Oh,and I have to give high praise to the sales and service staff at the Mount Laurel Best Buy, they are a very helpful and professional group.

    Great Entry Level Laptop

    Posted .

    What can you say, for $350 there isn't much to go wrong with. Excellent laptop for everyday use, browsing and multimedia. Purchased this product for convenience, traveling and business. As others have said, boot time and shutdown time take longer than average, but once the OS loads, it has no problem keeping up to speed. Could use some more RAM, but it all depends on personal needs. It's not the greatest multitasking laptop by any means, but it holds its own. Above par graphics, surprisingly outstanding battery life, simple and a 'point A to point B computer'. Great buy for entry level laptops, business use, personal use and mild multimedia. For the price, wouldn't be a bad idea to pick one up for a spare.

    Great laptop all the way around

    Posted .

    After shopping around for weeks and reading tons of reviews I finally decided on this HP. It got the best reviews out of all the other brands and since I've had an HP before I thought this one would be the best. It was delivered on time and the performance is fantastic! I am 100% satisfied with it. The were a few reviews that talked about the mouse and keyboard but I have no problem with either of these things at all. The computer is great for only costing $350.00. All the way around it is definitly worth your money.

    Great for the price

    Posted .

    This is probably great for watching movies. Reasonably big display, great (for a laptop, you can't get much base out of something so small) Altec Lansing speakers. Runs cool, long battery life. I bought it mostly for my work, which involves downloading and listening to audio samples. Its wireless is noticeably slower than my old thinkpad, so I returned it, :( but I think it's fast enough for streaming video. The other thing I didn't like was the touchpad, but I think that's just my personal preference for the little eraser-like thingy on the thinkpad. The keyboard is so so, but didn't bother me. Overall I was amazed that they could sell this for the price, and if I didn't need faster wireless I would have lived with the touchpad and keyboard, for the good sound and long battery life.

    For a college student

    Posted .

    This is great for college students or anyone who is a college student at home or on the go. I really enjoy the keyboard, it feels so much smoother on my fingertips. The brightness and lighting of the computer is awesome. The price was very reasonable and made me very happy to purchase. This is just an all around great computer.

    Excellent Laptop, but mousepad not perfect

    Posted .

    For the price, the performance and screen are great. The keyboard with the F1-F12 keys that you have to press FN to activate kind of sucks. I don't know whose idea it was to remove the F-keys from their primary function, but i know dell does this too. Examples of what I use F keys for historically is F5=refresh web page (now F5=go to web browser home page) and Alt+F4=close window Ctrl+F4 close tab in internet explorer. Now everything has to add an extra Fn button press. Also, the mouse on this laptop has buttons that seem to occasionally not 'click' when you click on them, so it seems you have to click several times at times for it to register the click. I should note that I always turn off tap-to-click otherwise when i'm typing and my wrists click the mouse button and my cursor is all over the screen (example in a word processor, i might be typing, and wherever the mouse happenned to be last gets clicked and my cursor moves there and typing moves to where i don't want it)- tap to click is a bad default but i know just about all touchpads have this on by default. i'm very happy with the laptop otherwise.
