If you're looking for a inexpensive laptop of this size then this is a perfect choice.

Initial Impressions:
I've only had the laptop for a few days, but am quite happy with it. The number pad is great, island keys look nice and feel good. The track pad has a ton of settings and options so with a little fiddling you should be able to find the settings that work for you. The display is definitely widescreen but looks great. There wasn't too much bloatware installed - mainly just a bunch of HP programs, but they were easily disabled/removed. Comes with McAffe 60 day trial which I uninstalled. Also comes with Office 2010 starter which provides Word & Excel limited versions. I love that this has a 7200 RPM harddrive as most laptops skimp with slower 5400 RPM options. Webcam works great and has a built-in light/flash. HP & Windows 7 even have face recognition for logging in, although that doesn't always work. The top has a matte finish with what I can best describe as a fine wood grain look that's somewhat grey/brown.

Update: one of the main reasons I bought this laptop was for the HDMI output so I could connect to my receiver and HD TV then play videos, Hulu, etc. from the laptop to the TV. After a little tweaking of the audio playback device both audio and video worked great over HDMI! I should note that the audio signal is not surround, but 'just' digital stereo.

Regarding Memory:
I ordered another 2GB of RAM and after removing 7 screws I got to the memory location under the keyboard and the additional memory looked to be exactly the same as what I ordered. You can google to find the instructions for removing the keyboard on HP's website.

My reference point is from the use of Thinkpads for 10 years (t-20, t-40, t-60) and the Dell Latitude series for another 3 (both brands are premium business laptops).

This is my take on this deal: This is a fantastic buy for $399! And stand-alone, not a bad computer!

The outstanding:
- Great built in camera (2Mp - most others have 1.3 or just 0.3)
- Faster HDD than most other laptops (7200 rpm, most others have 5500)
- Fantastic connectivity for this price class; HDMI, eSATA
- Durable design using polished metal

The good:
- Quite good speakers for this price
- Processor is reasonably fast, graphic processing also
- Keyboard is water proof, HDD has shock absorber function

The bad:
- The touchpad buttons are part of the touchpad, making them difficult to use as the cursor will typically move when you click. I use an external mouse, so it is not really a problem.
- I find myself mistyping more often when using the keyboard than on my Lenovo Thinkpad or Dell Latitude - and my fingers are not particularly fat

The ugly:
- Adding more ram was NOT a cakewalk - dissembling the keyboard and top panel was easy - putting it back together again was a nightmare, eventually had me using a kitchen knife to modify the plastic panels (if you do this be very gentle not to bend anything, so you don't have to bend it back like I had to...).

Would I buy it again? Definitely! I love this thing!

------ Additional observations added on August 1st, 2011 ------

- The wireless antenna is awesome. In locations where my two-year-old Thinkpad achieves just one or two bars from the wireless network (or sometimes none), the HP achieves four.

This is a surprisingly good laptop for the money! Although I purchase nearly everything from Amazon, I caught a 24 hour special on another site that I just couldn't pass up.

After returning two other laptops from another company that did not meet my graphics expectations, I was a little concerned about this one - you usually see these kinds of specs in much higher priced machines. Although the Microsoft Windows Experience Index is not a techie's dream, it does give a standard measurement that indicates how well the computer performs using Windows 7 (scale of 1 to 7.9).

After the first start-up, I ran the Index with the installed 2GB memory. Then I installed 4gigs and updated the Graphics and bios. Here's how the numbers came out:

Processor: 5.2, 5.3
Memory (RAM): 5.5, 5.5
Graphics: 3.3, 4.1
Gaming Graphics: 5.1, 5.2
Primary Hard Disk: 5.9, 5.9

These are very decent numbers.

x32 and x64 OPERATING SYSTEMS: I wanted x64. I called HP Customer Service and ordered the x64 at no cost. Within less than two days I received the disks via FedEx Express (good, responsive, customer service). Not one disk, but three Windows 7 disks arrived (x32, x64, and a recovery disk).

GRAPHICS: Although this is a business-field computer, I need good graphics nevertheless. If I lift this laptop up and put it next to my 24" desktop monitor (with an ATI Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon HD5770 video card that gives me an Index of 7.4), I can hardly tell the difference except the colors appear richer on the HP laptop!

KEYBOARD: Excellent. Generous sized keys. Nice border between the main keys and the ten-key area. Keys have a nice touch.

TRACK PAD: I find no fault with it.
