Rated 5 out of 5Â by Puchi Home & Student Reccomended with Bonuses!
Going into my senior year this laptop is a great way to kick it off with it's high speed performance with starting up in less than 30 seconds and great cooling system that leaves the laptop silent while cruising though the internet and listening to music. Fantastic computer that definitely suits my needs with it's ultra thin design a great overhaul from my HP Pavilion G4. The 15 inch Display was intimidating at first to use but it is very welcoming, watching movies and favorite television shows was a galore! Gaming on the Laptop will be disappointing as it cannot run most to-date games well such as Dragon Age Origins or Mass Effect but on the better side the laptop is able to run a select few Gamecube Games such as Mario Party, Paper Mario, and Baten Kaitos beautifully if there isnt anything else using the CPU. Although it cant run the most modern games the retro games such as PS1, Gamecube, PSP, and N64 are most welcomed! Great to play games with a Wireless XBOX controller with a receiver gives the feel of actuall console gaming with the old consoles.
two USB 3.0 is on the left sides of the laptop not colored blue all fancy like most but they are indeed there for anyone wondering.
Also the speakers arent the loudest things for a laptop but they are indeed nifty for again personal use and watching shows and movies.
On the last note you might want to get an external mouse for this laptop as while using the touchpad and very stiff clickpad wasnt media editing friendly.

MINE WORKS GOOD. THE LAPTOP WORKS AS EXPECTED. THIS WILL LAST LONGER THAN MY LAST ONE by: MAKING SURE I DO NOT DROP IT...

Rated 3 out of 5Â by CorkySue Very good - except..
This would be the perfect computer if --- the number pad (unnecessary in my opinion) squeezes the keyboard to the point that the right hand is always in the wrong place and each word typed has to be checked. Normally, I can type 100 words per minute -- with this it's good if I do 50 because I have to recheck every word. Very unsatisfied with this element - other than that, it's fast, does everything I want.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by PattyDee Having a problem with the font size changig
I love the laptop. I just don't like the font size changing all the time without my changing it. I thought it was the mouse at first, so I bought a new one and it's still happening. Please tell me what the problem could be. Otherwise, I have no complaints.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Alex824 Okay, but nothing special
I picked this laptop up as a secondary work computer, and while the software and everything seems to work okay, I have a few issues:
1. The computer doesn't come with any of the disks for software, if you'd need to reinstall. I created a backup of the computer, but there was no information packets with help on what to do/how to create backups/etc. I don't need paperwork for it, but a help file when you first boot up would be nice.
2. I didn't see any notice that the touchpad is highly textured. It's not bad, per se, but it is very weird (and I worry about cleanliness over time).
3. My laptop has had two major glitches since I've started using it (within the month). Both times it restarted without issue, but this is not what I'd expect from a brand-new computer.
Overall, it's a satisfactory laptop that does what it needs to do, and #3 may just be my computer, as frustrating as that may be.
