After my last laptop, the Dell Studio XPS 1647, took an unexpected turn for the worst, I began searching for a replacement. After a week of research, I finally decided on this laptop and after a week of using it, I have, as the title says, no regrets. Before I list my pros and cons, I just want to say what I have and will be using this laptop for. Java programming, Photoshop, movies, music, gaming, office work, and onsite tech work. Actually everything I just listed I have used it for.

-Screen: Watching movies/videos on the 1080p screen looks beautiful. Viewing angles are very nice. Colors, as far as I can tell, are accurate. I shied away from the 15" Envy due to many bad reviews about the color problems. Having a 17" screen is very very nice. When doing Java programming, it's so nice to see all your little IDE windows and have enough screen space to code without scrolling.

-Keyboard: My last laptop had a back-lit keyboard, and once you get one, you never go back. It's just too nice, especially when I do onsite tech work and there is little to no light where I'm working. The island style keyboard is very comfortable to type on. Every keystroke feels solid.

-Touchpad: After about 30min of tweaking the Synaptics settings, I got the touchpad to work the way I wanted. Mind you, everybody will be different. The left and right mouse buttons are very easy to use, despite some reviews I read. The double click to disable the touchpad feature, is a nice touch, as I use my G500 to play games.

-Graphics: While I know this is not a gaming powerhouse, I can play Skyrim on High settings without breaking a sweat (literally and figuratively). The laptop stays relatively cool compared to XPS1647.

More than any other PC laptop I'm aware of, it is clear that this was designed beat a MacBook Pro with a Windows 7 PC. Of course this is an impossible task as the MBP hardware is so integrated with the Apple operating system. But within the context of what was possible, there's no doubt what the designers were trying to do. As somebody who has owned several dozen PCs (through my company) and has owned four Macs, I believe they have succeeded. I'm thrilled with it and recommend it to others. Of course I haven't used it for a long time and that will be the ultimate test. But I did know before buying it that my nephew has been banging around with his 17 inch HP for quite awhile and it still works fine.

Before I do that I'd like to address the issues of service and the issue of the expensive additional hardware for changing a disc drive or adding a new one brought up by Eric O. I would never have thought to do this without reading his review, but within a minute or two I went to the HP site where I downloaded their parts guide. It clearly states that this part isn't provided and gives a part number. I put the number into Google and found numerous places that sell it for $65. That price is nuts and obnoxious but at the same time they could have made more money by supplying it and adding ten dollars to each computer. I would guess that less than 10% of their users will take advantage of this. But I'm not going to defend the $65-- that's nasty and bad business--but Eric O. should know that he at least got a free $65 for not reading the online manuals and going through all of his stress and wasted time. And as I want to talk about the MacBook Pro, can you put a second drive in it at any price?

This review has less to do with the quality of the laptop than it has to do with HP's failing customer service.

The laptop is working perfectly, was shipped with all of the latest drivers, and has never had a hiccup. It is smokin' fast for a laptop, and with an added SSD, this is unmatched for speed. For the quality of the product, this gets an EASY 5 stars. If they allowed the option to add an nvidia 560m or 570m instead of the AMD junk, then this would be a 10 star machine.

Now, for the reason the rating is so low. Upon ordering this laptop, which took place via phone, the sales associate (if you will) knew absolutely nothing about the product. I knew more about the laptop simply by looking up the specs on HP's site before the call. It could have been a simple purchase, but because I wanted to make sure this laptop was to be delivered ready to accept a second HDD, I asked the question. I was assured that it was completely ready to accept a second HDD upon delivery, the wiring would be ready to go, and the drive bay hardware would be included. Well, when I received it, the only thing that was included was the SATA cable for the second drive. The rail kit to keep the second drive from flopping around was NOT included, which, again, was supposed to be.

The following takes place via a single 2-hour phone call:
The next day, I called HP cust. service, I explained the problem, and they transfered me to sales, which was of no use, and they transfered me to tech support to get the part shipped out, but tech support couldn't get access to the part, so I was transferred to the HP parts store, and they advised me that the $0.
