Time to learn all about the processor
No Bluetooth, so I guess I’ll wait
I am confused…are these the same computers being sold in HP Fiesta for $439? I’m trying to compare specs on my phone and hard drive and memory looks like it is the same.
Woot is not known for their innovation in their product offerings any more.
As for these laptops, I wouldn’t trust them as replacement furniture feet, let alone as laptops.
Not so very long ago, I had a Pavilion laptop. Long story short, despite being on a cooling stand most of its life (one that blows air on the computer rather than sucking it away and depriving the machine of airflow), the laptop overheated and warped the motherboard after a year of use, causing both of my hard drives in the laptop to die and losing all of my data in the process. I found out when I went to take it in for service that it was such a common problem with the Pavilion line (not just my model, but most or all of them) that there were not even any motherboards available for my recently-discontinued laptop–not even refurbished ones.
I’m guessing they may have fixed this problem in later models, but I’m not about to spend several hundred bucks and a year of my life to find out. I will never, ever be an HP computer customer again.
Had same experience with similar model bout a year ago. Kept overheating esp in summer. Eventually died even when I installed a new HDD. Apparently it was the wiring that melted!
They are not the same. This is an intel i5 and the other is an AMD. There are differences in processing power and a few more things.
We need more recent reviews from folk who’ve owned HP products for a year or two. What I want to know is:
- In what capacity have you used their laptop and has their product stood the test of time.
- if not, did you find you needed to add on an extended warentee to cover and fix the laptop?
I ask, as the last time I bought an HP laptop it was about 8 years ago and the $1K+ invested in said machine didn’t cover issues down the line and I had to dish out more for extended coverage. HP burnt me and I’m still on the HP is cr@p bandwagon. Convince me otherwise.
I got a HP folio 13 Ultrabook (comes with second generation core i3) that is almost 2 years old from woot!. It is still going strong and the alumunium construction is pretty sturdy in my opinion. I dropped it on 2 separate occasssions and it seems to survive the fall pretty well. No broken hinges or loose wire inside. Granted that it is not the fastest machine on planet earth but it has earned me some dough, more than enough to get a newer Surface Pro 3.
If it is about inadequate cooling, it boils down to a specific design and/or about poorly applied thermal paste and padding.
