Some other reviewer mention that the quickplay buttons are buggy and don't work, all I can say about mine is that after I press it takes a second or two to execute the action require.
The battery gets very hot when charging even when the notebook is barely warm. I also notice that the battery life is very short, I only get a couple hours running on the power saver option.
The screen is really bright, with great picture quality, and high definition. the integrated web cam is the best I have seen so far and it came with a software that allow you to use some simple but fun effects in your videos.
Keyboard and touch pad and very good. But beware "this model does not come with the fingerprint reader" the product description never say it does but amazon put a picture of this notebook with the fingerprint reader. I think this is an omission and is not in bad faith but you can easily be misled by it.
As the performance of this notebook I'm not very impress because it took me a couple hours of fine tuning to get similar performance as my 1 year old HP Pavilion DV6660SE AMD Turion 64X2 TL 58 1.9GHZ, 2GB Ram. HP as usual sell this PC's loaded with useless software that takes tons of space and resources form you machine, my advice is to google by name every software install in you PC and then uninstall the ones you don't need or use.
**********UPDATE 31 JULY 2009**********
After a couple weeks of use I was able to update most of the drives. That solve some of the issues I have experience with the quick play buttons, graphic card, and webcam. So my advice to any possible buyer or owner is to go ahead and update every driver directly from the HP website. Thats if you have any noticeable problems with your hardware if you don't just let the HP update software do its job and update the drivers by itself.
Windows vista home premium continue to give everyone and his mother all kind of problems. I experience so many windows explorer crashes that I end up feeling soar after LOL other problems include really slow start ups and shutdowns, sometimes hangs up when punting to sleep or waking up the laptop. It also crash most of the times when copying or moving large files.
**********WINDOWS 7 COMPATIBLE**********
After 6 months of use I decided to clean format and reinstall Vista since my OS was slow as hell. So I backup all my data and go ahead with the factory reinstall tool using the hard drive partition. Much to my surprise it dint work. The program close and restart but my Vista OS fail to boot. So I try again using the DVD recovery disc I create when I got the laptop. That fail too the recovery tool give me an error that dint appear on the data base in the HP website. So when I was trying not to freak out I remember that a couple weeks ago I downloaded the new Windows 7 RC (release candidate) since my computer fail to boot from the OS and dint performed the recovery due to some weird error I have nothing to lose. So what the hell I may as well try to install Windows 7 in order to at least have a working OS.
Amazing enough Windows 7 install really easy and around 25 minutes later I have a working OS. Not everything works right out of the box though. You will need to carefully check your hardware and see what's working and what's not. The good news is that most drivers that work on vista 64 bit will also work on Windows 7 64 bit. Eventually I manage to install quite a few of the original Vista 64 bit drivers on Windows 7 64 bit. Some others drivers fail to install but when that happened I just use the Vista 32 bit drivers and presto..... now works like a charmed!!!
I found Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit edition to be a really good OS much better than Vista for sure. If you already own this laptop and your planing to keep it for a couple of years it will be a very smart decision to pay the $54 for the upgrade to Windows 7 or try to get the release candidate version for free and try it for yourself first. If your planing on getting this laptop be aware that for the same money you can now get a better one (this is pretty good though)
