More on the Processor

Does anyone know if the hard drive can be swapped for an SSD?

Bought it last time on woot…no problems.

Would buy it again if had to do over

Yes

Got the U111DX model off woot late last year (at an oddly higher price considering the specs), and been really happy with it.

Considering they’re basically hybrid tablet’s of a sort, it’s potentially worth getting an standalone bluetooth/USB keyboard as well.

Could any of those who have upgraded to SSD let me know how easy is the upgrade process? I am quite handy, but last time when I tried a Dell ultrabook it’s really a night – you had to disassemble every thing inside to upgrade its RAM …

Really bad reviews over at Costco

I bought one of these and love it. I replaced the hard drive with an SSD drive. I even put Linux on it and everything works. (In the past HP has been horrible with Linux.)

HP has a video showing how to open the laptop and replace the hard drive at http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04349558

OK, why would you need a Bluetooth keyboard when there’s a keyboard attached?

Wanted this same computer with SSD, but it is a lot more. Think I may just bite on this one. Are you only able to get 1 year SquareTrade warranty because it is refurbished? A 3 year warranty just saved me with my last one (gave me full refund on my laptop at the 3 year mark b/c they could not repair), so would like to get a 3 year warranty again.

We purchased this off of computers woot for $30 more. In general, we are pleased with the laptop except our viewing angles on the screen are VERY poor. if you are not looking directly at the screen, it is blurry. Not sure if this is standard or why it was a refurb to begin with.

It’s funny that you mention this, because for a laptop I actually prefer poor viewing angles, because I don’t want other people to easily see what I’m working on. I can adjust it for myself for optimal viewing, but unlike a TV, I have no need for any one else to have a clear view of what’s on my screen. I see a poor viewing angle as a pro more than a con when it comes to a laptop.

It is a known issue in HP laptops on woot, because they use LT panel for display, I bought a similar one last week on woot which i5 and has the same characteristic, don’t worry, we all in the same boat :slight_smile:

I swear when companies fill contracts for Costco and Sams club the quality goes down. I’ve had Vizio TV’s,2 Phillips sonic toothbrushes, Amped wireless router have some sort of manufacturer defect. It seems the failure rate on stuff that I get from the wholesale clubs is significantly higher than the failure rate I get with things purchased elsewhere. My guess is that they are supplying so many units at once to these stores that the quality control goes down. The only fortunate thing is they have a decent return policy.

Good luck doing this unless you are a computer tech with a lot of experience. It is very easy to break these cables if you don’t use extreme care.

Shame on HP for making it a ridiculous process to swap out the hard driver or battery in this computer.

This machine will run terrible without a Solid State Drive.

Thanks a lot Wreekie. This is very helpful, and it looks like within my capability.

Cheers,

But the spec says this one has the IPS panel. So I should expect it should have one of the best viewing angle, shouldn’t I?

hoping that you or another user could recommend a SSD that would fit?
