I really like the finger reader on this laptop.
After using my laptop for a semester, I have to say that I love all the features, and I would recommend it to any college student.
They said it was covered by warranty and sent me a box to ship it to them.

I purchased this laptop a week ago and when it arrived it was covered in some sort of grainy/chalky dust and the bottom port that houses the RAM, etc was somehow bent like it had been scewed on without being positioned correctly. I used Amazon's chat feature and the representative was very friendly and sent out a replacement laptop which arrived the very next day.

This one was a keeper. I had been looking for a long time for a laptop that was very portable and had plenty of power for school work and occassional entertainment, this one really fit the bill. Excellent laptop, especially for the $619.99 price tag.

The Intel i5 processor, 6GB of RAM, and the 750GB HDD can more than handle word processing, GIMP, iTunes, etc without any hiccups. I know you're not going to be able to play a lot of newer games on the Intel HD Graphics 3000, like Skyrim, Batman, etc, but you'd be surprised at what you could play. I downloaded League of Legends and was able to play it on its highest settings without a problem at all. Ran great.

The battery is rated for 7.5 hours, which I don't know of any battery that achieves what it's advertised to get, but just browsing the internet and typing I get a solid 5 hours out of this machine. That's pretty good.

One reason I chose this laptop was for the 14" screen. So far it's been great to carry around in my backpack. The actual screen itself is sharp with good brightness. My only complaint would be the colors. I think mine need adjusted, but not much of a big deal to me.

I haven't done much with the built-in HP TrueVision HD camera other than playing with it, but it's actually a really nice camera. Very clear. The low lighting feature is really nice. Doesn't look muddy and super dark like most other laptop webcams.

I actually read the 1 star review on here before purchasing my HP DM43050us and it gave me pause.

I am glad I decided to follow my own instincts. This laptop is so awesome, I am headed back to school after 25 years, I have also been an eBay Power Seller for 10 years and use this in my vintage collectibles search and research.

If you pay attention to the HP recommendations you will be thrilled with the product. If you run it on battery without power saving options then I am sure it runs down faster, I get 6 to 7 hours out of my battery, but I am old school, when I first got it I let the battery charge all the way up and then ran it all the way down 3 times to make sure I get a good charge! I know they say the new batteries don't need that done but I figure it cannot hurt!

The keyboard is awesome, they call it island style I guess, it is the easiest laptop keyboard I have ever typed on. I have been and Administrative Assistant for the last 20+ years and I have done a LOT of typing. I am a soft touch - no need to pound on it or the mouse, it is responsive and comfortable!

The mouse pad is a dream, not only can you turn it off if you are using an attached mouse so you don't end up some place your wrist accidentally sent you, but the scrolling and set-up options are really customizable and it took very few uses to get the hang of the pressure and movements to get the most out of it.

My above all favorite is the Simple Pass fingerprint program. I thought Firefox was going to be my password remembering demise... this lets me swipe a finger and open whatever I have it set to. Facebook, Gmail, eBay, Amazon and more - 10 fingers 10 settings - some swipes open multiple things at one time!

March 07, 2012~
My girlfriend purchased this laptop but I had the 'pleasure' of removing all the bloatware and installing programs she actually needs for college/everyday use. I purchased a 16gb flash drive for the recovery and it apparently all fit as it completed the process (the reason I mention this is all the information I found said to get a 32 GB flash card or use DVD's) the recovery files require around 15 gigs in space (the 16gb flash card had 14.8 according to Windows); Although I have not tested the recovery yet and hope I never have to.

Be warned that it took over an hour to create the recovery 'disk' so plan on starting it and walking away for a while I was under the impression it would take around 30 minutes. I then used CCleaner and pcdecrapifier to remove the majority of the bloatware followed by ninite to one click install antivirus/photo editing/online storage etc.

We purchased this at a brick and mortar store locally for 649.99 with $150 in mail-in rebates for a final cost of 499.99 and for that price there wasn't anything that I saw that could compete.

While I will not be the primary user of this laptop I do get to tinker around with it for a few days before she steals it back, the only 'complaint' I have has already been mentioned in that the DVD drive door is slightly difficult to open. I have had several laptops in the past and most of them would accidentally open at the slightest touch. I'm not sure that making it harder to pop the bay is a bad thing; However, my concern is that with the force required to pop the tray out it may end up failing faster than normal.

Why did I rate it 4/5 and not 5/5?
