Has not frozen (even temporarily) since loading it with all the programs, media and documents from my old laptop. Tasks are performed fast even when several run at once.
Build quality could be better but is not an issue in the slightest. The laptop seems very durable in its metal casing.
The fingerprint reader has proved much more useful than I expected it to be.
You should not hesitate to buy this, it's everything you need from a laptop. If you want even more power like an i7 or 8GB RAM you should probably be considering a desktop PC instead.
I'm very pleased with what HP has done here!
My only quibble was the "magic desktop" program that coms PRE installed to facilitate child use of the laptop. It froze when I tried to open it do I uninstalled it. All other stock software like HP sense has been useful.
And to be fair, it is in very good condition, both the exterior, and moer importantly, the internal components(hard drive etc).
The machine is an excellent machine, for the power-hungry, or technical(like my self) folks who develop what's inside these things for a living. It's also good for on-the-go movie-watching, music and other entertainment.
overall, I wuold rate this laptop as OK - GOOD value-for-money, given the price I paid for it.
The only (and very important) dissappointing factor in this laptop is it's horrendous wi-fi reception.
The wi-fi circuitory is either faulty(partically) or simply low-quality!
When i place my old laptop(an Acer 7720G) and this one(HP) on the same table(or various other locations) - my old laptop picks up all my neighbours' wi-fi connections, and am able to use them with 4-5 bars of signal power.
The HP laptop won't even pick up most of my neighbour's wi-fi and when it does, only with ONE bar. :(
It does not even pick up my own home's router with more than 3 bars (out of 5) signal-strength at a time.
I AM very very disappointed with this issue, as I have to use this laptop in large corporate environment- using Wi-fi base stations being on other floor; or, in B&B hotel rooms, with poor wi-fi signals(which my old laptop has no issues picking up).
please bear this issue in mind, as you may haev to buy a USB wi-fi transceiver, should you wish to buy this HP laptop and use it for wi-fi for serious work purposes!
Otherwise, good machine. 7 out of 10, for price, and functionality + power.
1) Power management default options disconnect you from wireless internet when you unplug from the mains. It's not obvious and appears to be just taking ages to connect. You can change the power settings so wireless is always on but it does reduce the battery life.
2) The second hard drive capability is not as simple to use as another reviewer suggested. There is, in the UK, no supplied long HDD connector cable for the second bay. Another buyer called HP and got one supplied; I called and got short shrift. You can apparently buy one from newmodeus in the US but it adds around £25 to the cost. This is IMO a very small saving for HP (it wouldn't cost them anywhere near that to fit it) and a big minus for the buyer.
