Easily gives me 8 hours on a single charge provided it is used fairly. Light browsing, some music and you are good to go.
When using memory intensive applications like Microsoft office or visual studio. The battery drains fairly quickly, but still gives me 6 1/2 hours, which is still better than most of the net-books going around the market. Amazingly it can play 1080p videos without any hassle. Astonishingly it can handle modern warfare 3 on low settings, as well as skyrim.
Though not a gaming net-book by any means the fusion processor works like a charm. The HD 6320 graphic card with dx11 support really does the trick.
The only reason i have given this amazing product a 4 star rating is because the net-book comes pre-installed with a 32 bit operating system. Which means you have only 3.49 gb of ram available for usage. I mean surely HP could have done better with this. Amazingly the ram can be upgraded to 8 gigs which is really massive for a netbook. But even if you upgrade it, you will still have only 3.49 gigs of ram available for usage.
You can always perform a clean install for a 64 bit operating system but you risk voiding your warranty.
On the other hand you can always dual boot it with a 64 bit Linux based operating system. Well, this is what i have done.
Concluding, this probably is one of the best net-books out there you can currently buy for the most competitive price !!!!
I received this little laptop as a Xmas present in 2011. I loved it. It was speedy, lightweight, had excellent battery life and did everything I required of it.
As the year's warranty expired, we received an invitation to renew; the cost was over £130, which I thought to be uneconomic when weighed against the value of the computer and therefore chose not to take up the offer.
Just before Xmas 2012 - just after the warranty expired - one of the hinges sheered through, a lump of plastic broke away and the flimsy plastic surrounding the screen cracked. By New Year's Day, the screen was unusable. I am not even sure that the warranty would have covered this, but - the fact is - that the hinges are ridiculously small and simply not up to the task of carrying the weight of the screen.
A friend had had a similar experience with an HP laptop and had warned me not to walk around with the screen open as this puts undue stress on the hinges. As a result, I have been even more careful with the computer than normal!
My husband took the computer to a nearby shop. He was told that the plastic casing requires replacement - £90 and the screen may be damaged and require replacement too - another £80. These sums are approximate, but effectively means that the computer is beyond economic repair. I am furious about this as everything else is in perfect working order.
I do not expect to treat computers like disposable batteries and replace them every year, but this - in effect - is what I have had to do. I have sent an email to the managing director of HP, more as a means of venting my frustration, rather than in expectation of any solution. I am so disappointed by the build quality that I will not, on principle, buy anything made by HP again.
I bought one the other day, because I travel around a lot and cant bare anymore dragging my fat 17`` laptop around. I compared this to Macbook Air and decided to go with this as it's got bigger harddrive, beats audio... yes its a little fatter body wise but everything else is spot on and its really an issue to say the price is amazing and you getting best end of the bargain. For those who are after a portable laptop.
Battery life is amazing, works really fast, windows 7 is awesome, beats audio is of the hook and im a lover of HP as they do put a lot into style, jsut as apple do. With this you get best of both worlds, something that looks great and works perfect.
It does not overheat and the cooling intake is on the side, which is better than underneath like laptops normally have... so no your lap will not burn. HP cooling system is very good quility.
HP recovery incase you have to reboot back to factory settings too is great and works perfect.
Not much else i can say apart from the keyboard is amazing as its inclosed and nothing gets underneath.
There you are...
