This notebook is built to the high standard you would expect of HP. It was purchased for an elderly relative who hasn't had much experience with computers. The modern Windows 8 Metro interface was too complex for him so we tweaked the operating system to boot directly to the Desktop and placed shortcuts there to enable him to easily access the internet, email and Skype. Because he was a bit clumsy with the touchscreen and touchpad we also bought him an HP wireless USB mouseHP X4000 Wireless Mouse with Laser Sensor - Ruby Red
which he is very pleased with.
He is using the notebook regularly, and accessing Skype and the internet has opened up a whole new world for him. At 96 years old he says we are dragging him into the 21st Century!
