This is a very fast laptop. I'm a computer programmer that needs a very fast machine for pretty much everything I do, and this laptop is awesome.
This machine as it is listed has great upgraded options, like the best resolution screen, blu-ray, extra battery, and extra RAM, however, the hard drive it comes with is very slow. This laptop does have a 2nd hard drive bay and I bought the 225$ 128GB Kingston SSD, made it my primary drive, then made the original drive my secondary drive. To do this was no small task, but here's the steps to take:
Warning: I have no idea if this does or does not void your warranty, I can't find a clear answer to that.
1. Order this laptop
2. Order an SSD ($225-$250 for 128GB, or $360-$400 for 160GB)
3. Order a hard drive caddy and cable kit. HP sells it for 91$ after taxes and shipping, but you can get it for 41$ from newmodeus.com. [...]
And by the way HP, I think that it's awful that the laptop didn't come with this in the first place. $41 for just a 3" cable is robbery and the $91 that you charge is two robberies and a beating.
4. If you get a SATA hard drive enclosure, things will be easier because you can connect the drives to the eSata port. Otherwise you will need to install the ssd to the 2nd hard drive bay, do the clone, then switch them so the SSD is in the first bay.Read more ›
As for the BUT ... the unit has always run warmer than any other laptop I've owned, but it wasn't an issue until about a month ago. At that time it started getting so warm my left hand would go numb (I touch type and rest my wrist/hands on the wrist pad when not actively typing). Ultimately, the unit started shutting itself down from overheating. I would get a message when rebooting telling me it shut down to protect itself. About the same time, the noise from the fan and heat became so great, I contacted HP. That's when the real fun began. Twice, I called and wound up speaking to someone in Asia. When I couldn't understand them, they disconnected me. After 4 calls, I was able to reach someone who arranged to have the unit picked up and repaired. As the unit is still under warranty, everything was done through FedEx at their expense. Unfortunately, instead of their promised turnaround time, it was well over 2 weeks before I got the laptop back. On it's return, it was worse than ever ... temps have been as high as 137 deg F. Even worse, HP left almost 2 GB of testing software (bootleg??) on my desktop. The software is labeled 3Dmk06 and OCCTPT 3.1.0.
At my company, we have historically preferred HP equipment. In my office alone, I have an HP desktop, the above HP laptop, an HP LaserJet AIO, and an HP Color LaserJet. Our corporate server is also an HP machine. I had a similar problem with tech support on one of the printers a long time ago, but never anything like this.Read more ›
