Not worth it

  • User Rating: Disappointing

  • Ease of Use:
  • Quality of Tech Support:

Pros:* Easy to operate
* Not expensive

Cons:* Cheaply Made, having many defects
* Costs a lot to repair

The Bottom Line: I feel it is a waste of money.


These netbooks come from a office electronics brand, HP, that is a pretty reputable company, right? Well, their netbooks fall very, very short from a buyer's expectations of a somewhat major purchase. My father owns one of these netbooks, constantly complaining of its poorly-made body, cheap materials, very slow processor, little memory, and its habit of shutting off/blacking out randomly, erasing any documents he has loaded onto its hard-drive. I have experienced these numerous problems, finally taking it to a technology expert. He examined it, finding it had nothing wrong with it, leaving us with a problem-infected, useless netbook. The horrible thing about this computer, is that it is brand-new and already has cost us over 500 dollars in repair bills. If you are going to buy a computer, stick with a better quality HP laptop, or any of the other reputable computer company, such as Dell or Apple. This netbook was probably the worst purchase my family has ever made, leaving us with a useless computer and hundreds of dollars worth of bills. In my humble opinion, I will tell anyone about the whole mess, and quickly not recommend it to anyone. When you are planning to purchase your first or what ever number computer, you should expect a item that gets the job done with out any defects that might effect the way your work or leisure gets carried out.
