      nice laptop for less demanding users

      I got this one some time ago and I'm still using it. It's pretty reliable and sturdy. I only had some issues with Hard disk, some bad sectors appeared just after I got it. Another issue was the battery. When I first got it battery couldn't last me more than an hour and a half. After a year or so battery died. I got a replacement (extended battery) that I still use and that lasts me about 4 hours or so.

      The laptop itself is pretty good and well build except I started hearing some noises coming from the plastic case. It also gets dust built up in its cooler and it starts overheating and needs cleaning every few months. Also I would like if someone put the HP software that comes with the laptop as an option so if you don't want it you don't have to get it. It is really annoying and slows the laptop down, and the uninstalling it from the control panel is really pain in the...

      I also had some issues with the use of HDMI cables, because when you connect it with TV it doesn't use the TV's speakers and it still plays on laptops speakers which isn't as near as good. I have been fondling with drivers and trying to make it work but in the end couldn't make it so I just made peace with it.

      That said, it isn't a bad laptop it only has a few flaws (like all) which you pretty much learn to live with. It's best used for surfing, watching movies and some moderate work without to much processor hungry apps (like any laptop).
