Great Deal, Pretty Happy with Purchase :)
on January 3, 2015
Got this computer here on Amazon during a sale, so I got a pretty great deal on it. I was looking for a cheap gaming laptop that would fit my budget. Rated 4 starts instead of five because while I'm all around happy with my purchase and the computer runs fast and does everything I need it to do with speed, it does have a few hiccups here and there...about what I'd expect from an HP.
I've had HPs in the past and in hindsight, I wondered why I got another after the problems Ive had with previous laptops of this brand lol. But it was a good deal, so Ill give them one more chance.
Pros: Great price, runs great, and has room for an additional stick of ram. Came with windows 8.1 that Ive grown to love. Big clear screen, love it!
Cons: every now and then, which seems to be a problem with all HPs, the computer wont want to come back from sleep, and you're forever stuck on a black screen, leaving you no choice but to force-shutdown. Yaaay. Also one of the usb ports on this laptop was soldered in crooked, so its a little hard to plug things in to that particular socket. Other than those two things not much else to complain about, but at the same time those are two things a true quality computer wouldn't have issues with. The touch pad on this computer has a very awful textured surface I don't like as well, not pleasant, not sure why they felt a need to do that.
But all in all, none of those things are worth less than a four star because I do love my computer, but HP needs to work on some things.
