Never had an HP computer before as we've always gone for Dell, but with so many issues with the Dell computers, we thought it was time for a change.
So why not take a look at HP, after all they are one of the biggest computer manufacturers in the world and should have a good idea of what works right?
Task was to find something with good performance but for a reasonable price and the HP G6 2264 topped the bill. Surprisingly it came with a physical DVD drive, something that few modern laptops include for a decent cost, but to load existing software, something that we needed to have. The 4mb of ram was the minimum but we also wanted to try Windows 8 - big mistake!
The hardware worked as well as you could expect for the price, but the OS was/is shocking. This isn't a review about Windows 8 but do yourself a favour and get a Mac! Why do you need two desktops???
But despite that, the HP is quick enough and doesn't get bogged down. It keeps it's cool and the hard drive will keep us going for years. Good enough!
