Pros: Sleek and attractive machine. Good build quality with a strong swivel mechanism. Lid locks down nice and secure when in tablet and notebook form. Affordable and readily available at local stores with numerous rebates. Tons of features and benefits right out of the box - and impressive specs to match it (2.0GB RAM, Lightscribe DL DVD-R, 250GB HD, Biometric Scanner, Express card slot w/ media remote, built-in webcam, media card reader, wireless connectivity, etc.) Compact/Light size and weight - easy to take with you anywhere. I dig the trackpad design - I like the feel and texture of it (no dry, chalkboard feeling - easy to clean) This machine continues to put a smile on my face daily. Vista runs flawlessly on this puppy and I've decided that this baby is a keeper for me.
Cons: Bloatware as usual. Required some tweaking to get it just the way I wanted it (as with most Windows machines). Noticeable body flex from the plastic shell. Top heavy - as the screen portion is significantly heavier than the bottom keyboard shell (you'll notice it if you try and open the laptop with one hand). Runs hot after some use.Read more ›
So for my new laptop I wanted a touch screen that was small and light. I've had a lot of problems carrying around that dell even though it was supposed to be light; so the lighter the better. I also wanted a touchscreen feature just for fun. I plan on taking handwritten notes on this in class. I used to take notes w/ my Dell and always wished I had the capability of just writing in the formulas or what not.
I looked at several touch screen computers such as the IBM Levnovo series and Toshiba's, et al. All were beyond my price range. So for the price, this was hands down, the winner for value. However, there were many things wrong with this computer that made me regret buying it (but not enough for me to return it). Primarily Windows Vista issues but that's not really HP specific.
The bloatware has not been too much of an issue since I removed them before I used it so it was pretty easy.
I've had the computer for about 1.5 months and I'm getting somewhat used to the quirks of the computer. For example the long boot up and the fact that the fingerprint reader will not work coming back from hibernate. yeah, weird. Anyway here are the main sticking points for me:
-Very reflective screen. Much more than I expected. Really unusable outdoors or a bright room. You'd have to turn up the brightness to HIGH.
-2hr battery life w/c I expected. But the annoying part is the 4 hour RECHARGE.
-no parallel port! there is that docking port, though.
-Vista. All (yes, all) the programs I installed I had to right-click and put that option to run compatible to XP.
-dvd playback is slooooow.Read more ›
The biggest problem is the support. First you call in and get routed to a call center in India where they cannot even understand the letters when you spell your name. When you finally get to a tech support person, they have very little experience with the computer. It took me over two hours to remove only a small portion of the bloatware that ships with the computer. Some of the bloatware apparently cannot be removed at all. (At least that's the answer that I received from the HP tech rep.)
HP should have more consideration for their customers than to ship the computer with all the built-in garbage that most people will never want to run. One particularly annoying piece of the bloatware is an HP app that keeps trying to sign you up for some internet service or other (it seems to be unable to recognize that you are already connected to the Net). Once started, the HP app can only be killed with Task Manager; there is no cancel or close button.
The computer is available only with Vista. As far as I am concerned, that is a disaster. User Account Control essentially must be enabled and it requires constant interaction at the level of, "Do you really want to run the program?"
