This computer runs fast. I use it as a netbook. I have it connected to a wireless n network and the router is upstairs. I use this computer downstairs on the other end of the house. Our house is 2500 square feet, so that gives you an idea of the area it covers. I connected a wireless printer to it and the windows driver installed without any problems. It plays videos from the internet without a hitch. The computer runs cool and does not get hot. I love the keyboard and the volume controls are actually keys which is nice. The sound and speakers are excellent, so much better than I had expected. The screen resolution is beautiful. I have had it for about 6 weeks now. It has great battery life, I think I average over 7 hours each charge. I paid a little more than what I wanted but considering the specs I would buy it again.
The only issue is the trackpad, it is quite touchy so I use the pg up and pg dn keys a lot. There may be a fix for it but I just have not researched for it yet. It is not a dealbreaker tho.
Oh, and yes, there is bloatware but what OEM OS computer does not come with that? I suggest uninstalling all undesired software. The bloatware is not a dealbreaker either.
I am very happy with it but I wish it came in pink ;)
Screen is bright and clear, keyboard is responsive, comes with plenty of hard drive space (though you loose some of it to HP's recovery partition) and plenty of memory.
Took me a while to find the wired network port, it is cleverly concealed by a small cap on the right had side (just after the external vga monitor port) but you might never need it since the wireless network card works so well.
Webcam quality is ordinary, touch pad is quite sensitive, quite me some headache while typing since every time my thumb brushes it it takes the cursor somewhere else!
Graphics card was the biggest seller for me, the ATI 6310 is decent, will run older games pretty well, even runs LoL
All in all a great system for those wanting a bit more power on the go that the usual netbook.
1. Screen - seems bright and the pixels merge well. 11.6 or 12.1 are the largest screens that should be made with the 1366x768 resolution; the 15.6, 14.1 and even 13.3 screens with the same resolution just show space between the pixels too clearly.
2. Form factor - looks cooler in the pictures than it does in person. The 11.6" display is kind of a waste of space; the laptop's footprint is easily the size of a 12.1". There is a large keyboard that fills the base of the clamshell right to the edges, which is smart; however, the bezel around the screen is SO fat that the laptop footprint still ends up being the same size as one size up, without the benefit of a one-size-up screen. I have a 12.1" MSI Wind from 2-3 years ago that actually has a footprint a few tenths of an inch wider, but almost half an inch smaller in depth. This really needed to be a 12.1" notebook, or should have been half an inch smaller in width and depth. This whole "small screen with a huge bezel" design stopped being acceptable, oh, ten years ago. So, for being only 11.6", this one does not have an especially compact footprint; is DEFINITELY not thin; and is of average weight. You'll look at it for the first time and think: I was expecting something a lot more portable. This is surprisingly close in size to my old laptop.
3. Quality - mine was a BIG disappointment. The cooling fan makes a loud buzz; on one start-up cycle the thing threw a BIOS error saying that the system cooling fan was not functioning. The hard drive makes intermittent loud clunk-click noises (in addition to the normal noises of the platter spinning and the mechanical arm moving) that sound like impending hard drive motor death.Read more ›
All in all, the machine runs smoothly. One reviewer mentioned having issues where his machine wouldn't start in less than 2 minutes. I am of the belief that he received a faulty machine, because mine boots between 45 seconds and 1 minute from a full shutdown, and resumes from sleep within 10 seconds. Obviously, this is not going to be as fast as a SSD, but still pretty decent.
The screen looks decent. All the HP propaganda I've seen online has raved about the screen, and I think some of that is unwarranted. The screen looks just fine to me, but the viewing angle is really not that great (one of their main talking points on HP website, etc.) and I have a really hard time differentiating shades of black. When watching movies that are fairly dark it is sometimes hard to tell the difference between objects. All in all, though, it's not that bad. Significantly better than y netbook, and doesn't stop me from watching video at all. It feels strong. Like some of the other reviewers have mentioned, the bevel around the screen is a little big, but I didn't really have too much of a problem with it.
Performance is about what I would expect from the machine. It handles most tasks that I require very well. However, my main use for the machine is web browsing, word processing, and infrequent photoshop/illustrator work. While it handles small tasks no problem, photoshop and illustrator, although usable, are fairly slow.Read more ›
