This one made me go Mac.....
on January 23, 2013
When my 3.5 yr old laptop died right before Christmas I did a quick A prime on this...... Really just needed basic MS Home Office and web browser. Did not realize it came with Windows 8..... not real impressed with that and so far it's so new there is little user experience type help. After a month it died after a required Windows update....continual reboot cycle. Since it ships with NO software, I had to spend1.5 hours with HP support before they finally shipped me reinstall disks.
The reinstall was 4 CD's and took almost 4 hours. Completely wiped it out,,,,,luckily I had most of my important stuff backed up - there was no way to backup personal files even though the instructions say there would be.
So I went out and bought a macbook..... this one is going to the kids.
