- Very low power usage. On idle I measured 18 watts with my power meter.
- Great options for the Touchpad. Make sure to practice the two-finger scroll etc. in the Control panel so you get used to it.
- DVD burner is fast -- I made backups of some movies/CDs to test out. DVDfab and IMGburn worked fine.
- VGA, HDMI, USBs and others - All comfortable to use and well positioned
- Media card reader was able to read my 32 GB SDHC card with no problems - very fast transfers too.
- HP Webcam is great and works very well in Skype, AIM, Windows Live messenger and others
- Keyboard is very comfortable and allows you to type fast. Function keys allow for extra functionality
- Very light and easy to carry for a huge 17.3" laptop
Cons: - The battery life stated is not very accurate (4 hours and 45 minutes). I tested this and it was closer to 3 hours during regular web browsing.
- Some bloatware but not much! Way less then most brand new laptops I have worked with.

Also the Numeric Keyboard, great! its a great deal for the price, and a very big computer if you are into it, it doesn't weights too much, but its not a machine por portablilty, at least extensive portability. Its for, home or work use, quite comfortable in every aspect. The only thing i was dissapointed is the finish, the dm3 was quite classy with metal like case, and this one, is quite standard, way better tan a usual toshiba, but not as fancy as my last laptop. But nothing i can not get used to, at least for the amazing price. I bought it at $529.99. If it is still cheap buy it.
Adding: Excelent and extremly fast shipping, asked for it on thurday with free shipping, and on monday i had it in my hands. In Guatemala!! Central America.... Amazon has never shipped this fast. EXCELENT!
The 17.3 inch screen is outstanding, bright with vivid colors.
I bought if for 2 reasons, the HDMI output and the webcam. What I really like is that I can just plug an HDMI cable into my HD TV and it starts working completely automatic. I don't have to do anything. I watched a couple shows that are only available online (cannot be streamed to TV via ROKU) and now I can watch them on the big screen.
The webcam though only has a max resolution of 640x480, not much in this age of HD but it will work for what I need for now. It also needs a lot of light before you can see the color. If my test of videophoning works then I will probably look for a much better resolution camera.
Another interesting feature that is left out of most of the specs that I have looked at is that this laptop is supposed to be DLNA certified. I believe that means this laptop can stream video and music to a DLNA device such as a ROKU. I haven't tried it yet but when and if it works, I will update this review.
Overall, this is an excellent value.
*10-key pad (I'm a teacher and imputing grades is so much easier with it; also if you do budgets of any kind it's a must)
*Sturdy yet light weight
*Screen--bright and vivid colors, exceptionally clear
*Start up and shut down is very fast
*Fast internet downloads and website uploads (the i3 core is great for multi-tasking)
*Lots of new games
*Things are much easier to find on this than my last laptop (for example: something in the control panel)
*Large screen is helpful--I'm a bit near-sighted, and on this screen when I zoom in, I don't lose my view of the whole page
*Screen brightness and speaker volume controls are easily accesible on the keyboard
*When you open a new tab on the internet, the screen shows you your 10 most used websites, so you can simply click one of those instead of typing in the web address (very convenient for someone like me who usually only goes to the same 5-10 websites)
*The touch-pad doesn't stay off. You have to turn it off every time you turn on the computer. I use wireless mice and I never want the touch-pad on because I tend to accidentally move the cursor...but I have to turn it off with every start up.
This is my 5th HP laptop and I'm very glad I made this purchase.
Update: 11/20/11 Still going strong. :)
