1.0 out of 5 stars I hate to be one of those reviews but... 31 May 2013

I have to say that this review is sadly not about the product, but rather the availability of the product. I ordered this laptop on March 29th, and it was due at the end of April. The delivery date went by, so I contacted Amazon. The staff were very nice and said that the laptop would be arriving the next day and even upgraded the delivery to first class mail. There was a tracking number, an arrival, etc. The next morning, the staff wrote back to me and said that there wasn't a laptop and, due to building/availability issues, the laptop wouldn't arrive until the end of May, and it would be understandable if I wanted to cancel my order. I decided to give it one more shot, but still no laptop. Essentially, Amazon needs to list this item as unavailable; I knew after the first call that it would be unlikely I would get this laptop, but because it was exactly what I was waiting for, I gave it another shot. I would advise other customers to avoid purchasing this product until Amazon addresses the availability issue or at least marks the product unavailable, which it currently isn't. I generally do not write reviews about delivery problems since it is not an evaluation of the product itself, but in this case, hopefully this review will save some time and frustration for someone else. Potentially great product, but not available at this time.

2.0 out of 5 stars HP Compaq Presario CQ57-460EA 25 July 2012
By Patsy O
Style Name:Core i3, 4GB RAM|Verified Purchase
Bought this for my son's 15th birthday. More than a month later, he decided to watch a DVD on it - impossible! It plays but the picture is so pixellated, you cant make any sense of what is showing. Tried different DVDs and media players - same result. Warning: check your DVD players ASAP and return for a replacement if faulty. Otherwise, he's not complained about anything else. We are both disappointed that a faulty PC was shipped to us, hence the 2 stars rating.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal cost per performance 26 April 2012
By Pusser
Style Name:AMD E300, 2GB RAM|Verified Purchase
First order arrived and it was DOA. I phoned Amazon and the new one arrived and the DOA collected the following day including an upgrade from original order for next day delivery. It just does not get better than that.

I bought this to set up for a friend whose partner has already paid me for it. I have given it four stars instead of five because I have had to spend several hours removing bloat ware, crap games, Norton, demo MS Office and usual pointless stuff. I also notice that things like Ebay and Skype on the desktop are syphoned through HP servers so I assume they get a cut somewhere. (Don't now though.

I would say that 4gb of ram would have been better and of course more expensive but for a use mainly of surfing, emailing, writing letters and storing and indexing pictures where seconds are not important to the operations envisaged, this is the one to get for first timers, students on a budget, granny or the Aunty with with whiskers. Of course, a quite a cheap price one can always upgrade by a further two gigs if more speed is required.

Incidently, I bought and I7 Acer laptop from Amazon ( and many others bits over the years) and took out the large hardrive and swapped it for a 128gb SSD. The speed is awesome and although in my case hard disk space is not an issue,I would still prefer to do this and off load to an external drive for the instant responses I get from it now. But I expect you know this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Happy 20 April 2012
Style Name:AMD E300, 2GB RAM|Verified Purchase
Great laptop, very good value for money, incredible delivery, (I live in Greece) Free. Does what it says on the box. For anybody wondering as I was, whether it comes with the "optional" webcam etc. it does.

4.0 out of 5 stars PC from Amazon 30 Jan 2014
Style Name:AMD E300, 2GB RAM|Verified Purchase
I hate the pompous addons.. I AM YOUR HP COMPUTER AREN'T I LOVELY!!! stuff. NOPE I do not! I don't like the spacebar which will not work until I bash it. I am forever feeding the damn thing with backup discs (until my little lad down the shop said not to bother unless I wanted to save something special!) And How in HELL do I get rid of a damn Entry Password?

Not my favourite. My small Acer notebook is FAR and away superior.

This laptop gets five stars! As a writer, it does everything I need! DVDs work, Kindle app (download for free) works, MS Office works! Everything is great!

However, I ordered this product in May and it was £279! I just stopped by to order another one for my daughter's birthday and it has gone up by £56!!!

Now correct me if I'm wrong, but as lovely as this laptop is, there is nothing special about it! It's a standard laptop and this is not a new model!

Amazon you advertise your excellence at providing high quality for low prices, but a £56 price increase is not acceptable!

Will be looking for daughter's laptop elsewhere!
