New, not respiffed. I almost missed that

I have a very similar one. The touchpad buttons are a little loud, very clicky, but a decent laptop for the office. (mine doesn’t have as good of a graphics card.)

What! No USB 3.0???

I’ve been looking for a new laptop with blu ray. This seems like a great deal. Someone tell me what’s wrong with it?

Is this the new “Will it work with my Mac” post thing?


Next, we’ll be arguing about Linux.

I just bought my son an HP with which we’re very happy.

Had I seen this, I’d have been in for one in a flash. Nice deal.

It might be, but the first time i did a transfer via USB 3.0, it brought tears to my eyes.

Nuthin’ … if you’re not a serious gamer or something … there’s not a damn thing wrong with it, and there’s definitely nothing wrong with the price.

I say, “jump.”

I wonder if this is a good choice for Diablo III

This particular model comes with a cobra in the box. But if you own a mongoose, it’s a really great deal.

This actually looks quite nice, I bought a new laptop about 8 months ago - makes me sad to see what I could have had. I’ll wait another 8 months and see what I can get then!

Keep in mind that this only plays Blu-rays. It cannot write to them as it can with DVDs and CDs. I can’t tell you how many people mistakenly believe that they’ll easily back up their laptop using a built-in Blu-ray drive. While some notebooks may offer a Blu-ray writer as an upgrade option, I don’t believe any stock models have that feature. Certainly none under $500.

In an informal review of most hated item, brand or store, HP came 4th behind Paypal, Rose Art art supplies and Midas auto repair. http://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/tpct0/what_is_your_never_again_brand_item_store_or/

It’s “made by” HP. That’s what’s wrong with it.

HP has terrible quality control and worse customer service. I have had nothing but bad luck with HP computers, repeatedly. No more though.

Edit: just wanted to add that I know what I’m doing with computers, and I can tell you their “tech support” is a nightmare of incompetence at best, a nightmare of disrespect toward customers as a matter of regular course.

I have used hundreds of HPs. I haven’t noticed any more problems with them than any other. This is a pretty good deal.

If this laptop was made by a no-name brand I’d never heard of, I might be in for 1. Since it is HP, not a chance.

What better way to run a computer tech support than incompetently these days? :smiley: That asus COre i5 laptop they sold on here a year ago is still the best thing I’ve ever had the pleasure of getting my hands on. Does what I want and more. HP’s arrow key layouts make me sad.
