One of the features I hardly cared about or noticed, fingerprint scanning, has been one of the more use-changing features about it. It is great logging in to the computer, all websites and even opening custom sets of pages with a swipe of a finger! That's right, swipe your finger when you're not at a login page, and it opens the specific pages you choose! :)
This computer runs everything I wanted it to (including some high-demand CAD programs!). It is the "best of the rest" when it comes to mid-level laptops. The performance ratings seem to be on par with most $900-$1400 laptops for how I use it (CAD, music, video, browser, lots of specialized background programs such as flux and launchy). I have ran all of those run at once without any major slowdowns.
For me, this laptop is sleek and sturdy and light enough to carry around anywhere. I don't even bother carrying the cord. Want to know why? The battery lasts 7-9 hours with the way I use the laptop (normal brightness, lots of programs running). If I put it on power saver and only run a couple things, that can be stretched out. 7-9 hours of usage is plenty for most any given day while I am out and about.
The glossy screen is not ideal but if that doesn't bother you, the rest of the laptop will impress. This is the best laptop I've ever used. I wouldn't even compare this to a macbook air... macbook airs are not in this class of performance and capabilities. If this package had an apple on it, it would be, just rough guessing :P, $1800 or more.
I chose this laptop because of the size of the screen and I've always had good luck with HP products. Now if I just had a chair that could raise me enough so that i'm not hitting the wrong letters, but that will come later. This laptop has the capacity I need and the weight of it is not a problem because I don't carry it around. For travelling I have a net book which is going from the sublime to the ridiculous as far as screen size is concerned.
I expect this machine will work for me for a long time.
-Overall the laptop LOOKS great, its got a brushed metal texture that really makes it look like a top dollar computer.
-The screen resolution has been fantastic for me and just what I wanted.
-The AMD processor has proven to be a real workhorse so far and anything I want to do is an extremely speedy process.
-The bloatware that came pre-installed was kept t a minimum so I didn't have to do to much deleting.
So far this computer has done everything I wanted it to do but there have been a few con's.
-I will echo everyone elses sentiment about the battery sticking out and making the computer sometimes uncomfortable to sit on your lap, the plus side of this is that it keeps the computer elevated and cool.
-The first couple weeks every once in a while the laptop would disconnect from the internet and I would have unplug my router for the computer to pick it back up again..
There are many more Pro's but to keep it short I love the look/feel and speed of this laptop and would purchase it again in a heartbeat!
Overall I give this a 7 out of 10. It's cheap, fast, and pretty.
Oh, and it has a wicked creepy background you'll grow to love and then change after two weeks.
I would recommend a reformat after unboxing. From the HP Recovery Manager, there is a "minimum" selection that will reformat / reinstall with device drivers and some "essential" HP software (I still removed the support app). Hewlett Packard pollutes your PC with crapware (what the hell, HP?), otherwise, and I'm not satisfied with simply uninstalling some of that stuff.
