The products of HP were good nearlly 3 years ago. People loved them for their looks, reliability, performance and bugdeted price. But after 2008 the reliability ratio of HP as compared to its competitors is far below in almost all aspects including price, performance, looks and the most important reliabilty. I myself was a big fan of this company but after facing the failure of consectively two the pcs' from this company, I changed my view. My wife had this laptop and I bought this laptop for her as her birthday present three months ago, but just after two months, the screen got dead spot(small black spots) and the hing connecting the screen with keyboard also got broken. Still the laptop was running fine but last week its keyboard also stoped working, which sucks. All the money which I paid for it gone in vain. My experence about:
PROCESSOR: Intel core i3 processor clocked at 2.1 GHZ works really very fine for multitasking but it is not designed to handle more tasks. This pc is fine for websurfing, wordprocessing, office work, watching movies.
GRAPHICS: Intel integrated graphics are not capable of running blueray movies silky smooth.
BUILD MATERIAL: This laptop is made of seriously very cheap plastic. Its glossy surface is just a fingerprint magnet and you have to clean up the laptop after every single use. The glossy screen also causes panic while watching movies in sunlight.
LACK OF HDMI PORT: This laptop lacks some of the most important port which is included in the laptops of this price range, i-e; HDMI port.
The sound quality is good, battery life is also impressive and last about 3 hours (6 cell) even we are watching movies. The security feature like Finger Print Sensor works great. Its light weight makes it easier to carry this laptop every where but it can't be called ultraportable laptop. Over all this laptop isn't recommended to any one wether the person is student orhouse wife.
