Rated 4 out of 5Â by sarasue13 Great laptop for this first-time owner!
I have used laptops here and there, but have never owned one. This computer was incredibly easy to set up and use out of the box. It's really fast and has great features for the price. I know others have mentioned the buttons on the mouse pad are very hard to click - I do not find that to be the case at all. I do agree, however, that it's annoying when you're trying to scroll and it instead causes the page to zoom in or out. (The mouse pad doesn't have the feature where the far right side can be used as a scroll bar with one finger.)
A couple of cons I've noticed in the 2-3 weeks I've been using it:
1. It is larger and heavier than I expected. Again, I've never owned one, but I didn't expect to need two hands to pick it up off the coffee table.
2. The battery life is nowhere near what is stated, which others have mentioned as well.
Other than those things, I am very happy with my purchase and think I made a good decision. For someone like me who just wants to surf the net at high speeds and use MS Office and Skype, I would definitely recommend this laptop.
P.S. I have not put any of my files, photos, iTunes on it yet, so I'm not sure if that will slow it down. I also don't have MS Office on it yet.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Carol60 Really good laptop
Excellent product, fast, good features. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was for the sound. To be frank, the sound it terrible, very tinny sounding - I prefer a bit of bass. Otherwise, I'm completely happy with this laptop!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by OldBH Pavilion 15t-n200 Notebook, Win. 7
Has every thing I needed and extra "stuff" that I probably will not use (web camera, etc.), Boots up fast, easy to set up and personalize. With my change from XP to Win 7 I see that I am going to love Win 7. The machine has a whole lot of really nice features, light touch key board for one and many extra function keys (sound, display brightness & so on) located for easy access.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by lakelandpcdr This product is a good value for the sale price.
This product is a good value for the sale price, but is just average when purchased at full price.
The good: Worked right out of the box and wasn't loaded down with applications that needed to be deleted. Deleted MS Office and anti virus software only.
The bad: Needed over 65 required updates to windows 7. This should have been done at the HP final test facility prior to shipping. Didn't have the bluetooth driver installed which is listed on the hp web site for this product.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Author4856 Good speed and large storage
The speed and size of the drive work well for writing and photo editing, I don't have to worry about running out of storage. The LED screen seems bigger than advertised, providing sharp and bright pictures with full controls for contrast and brightness. This buy replaced my last laptop . Compared to my old XP version, this new one is significantly faster on boot up and operation using Windows 7. The only minor gripe is the touch pad location seem awkward in the left of center location, but this makes using the full alpha numeric keypad easy.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Ron71 I love this laptop!
It worked beautifully right out of the box. I loaded my programs on to it, Internet, etc. It is extremely fast and easy to use. I am not a gamer, so that was not an issue. Looking forward to a long and happy relationship.
