My $1200 3 year old Dell completely crapped out on me this weekend.
HP Pavilion 17-E155NR 17.3" Touchscreen Laptop, AMD A4-5000 Quad-Core, 4GB DDR3, 750GB SATA, 802.11n, Win8.1 - Anodized Silver
Would you fine folks recommend this as a simple computer for web browsing, video streaming, & MS Office use?
Yes, picked one of these up last week. Nice machine, added a SSD (has 2 drive bays) and it boots in about 6 seconds. MS Word starts in the time it takes to click the icon. Just realize that with intel 4600 graphics, it’s not a gaming machine and does not support Nvidia Cuda in Photoshop and other programs.
I have another desktop with a high end graphics card that I use for these applications.
I also bought the extended 3 yr. HP if anything happens to it warranty for $275. So, it’s like new. I’m a happy camper.
EDIT: Sorry, I got the HP intel version last week, not the AMD one. Probably this one is ok for that purpose, though.
