I am searching for a good laptop for school (currently in nursing school). I had a HP Pavilion dv4-1435dx and the graphics card started to go out on me and unfortunately that's attached to the motherboard. And also the caps lock and scroll lock started blinking which mean the motherboard is going out soon. I need something that wont do this either...and good battery...not sure if I want another HP but anything that you believe will be beneficial I would appreciate it! Also use my computer for alot of streaming videos for school.

I have a 2 yr old Toshiba Satellite A665-S5170, don't have the specs in front of me but I think 4GB DDR3 and 640GB HDD, so no issues with memory or speed. Love the keyboard and 15.6 " screen, display is excellent, and NO problems at all. Purchased at Best Buy (sorry Amazon). Good luck with your search.

Hi, Vincent! I bought a HP Envy Ultrabook 4t last July, and I love it. Very fast (Intel Core i5, 4GB RAM, SSD, very sharp 14" screen, and I love it. It's not as light as some smaller ultrabooks, but I like having the extra screen real-estate. Also, no CD/DVD/drivebays; but I also bought a portable one very inexpensively, that I use on both the HP and my desktop. Good battery life, too, plus backlit keyboard (a great help in low light) and good-functioning touchpad. IMHO, no laptop is perfect, they have to cram a lot into a small container, etc.; but to me, this was the best of the lot. It's the 3rd HP laptop I've had since 2007. No hardware issues to date. Hope that helps! Best of luck in your nursing career!

Have you bought yet? I have several HP's and would part with one for a tablet for my 12 yr old to play "cut the rope" on, If you don't I could sell one, cuz one was for my (ex) wife when we were together last year. Thx ED

Edward I don't own a tablet if that is what your asking. I was looking into a HP - ENVY 15.6" Laptop - 6GB Memory - 750GB Hard Drive - Natural Silver Model: m6-1105dx from Bestbuy. But not sure how if to get AMD or Intel version. I have yet to find something like this on here.

I got an Acer aspire right here on Amazon for around 300. Duel core, 250HHD, windows7. It is a very good functioning laptop. I wish I had had it when I was is college, it would have made things less of a head ache. I had to really look to get this good deal.

Thank You for the reply. Not sure if I'm going to purchase a laptop, or maybe a Nexux 7" or 10"? Still looking??
