Clive, Portsmouth General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Plenty of memory and 1TB Hard drive.
Bad points:
OEM version of Ubuntu is 4 years old and only supported for another year.

Although reasonably easy to upgrade HP do not support more recent version so built in disaster recovery will revert to outdated original operating system.

Richard, Doncaster General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Bought this so that I could look at Ubuntu as an alternative to Microsoft without spending too much money. I've found Ubuntu straight forward-busy reading up!
Bad points:
Had trouble with the wireless connection. Used Ethernet cable and upgraded software. Now completely fine.

Jen, Bristol Development/Gaming

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good price for the spec - but then you're not having to pay for Windows
Bad points:
Ships with outdated linux version. Worth noting you can't just update Ubuntu to the latest, you'll need to clean install it. 14.04 isn't compatible with the touchpad or wireless drivers (didn't bother trying 16.04) - clean install of Mint works like a charm though.

Battery life isn't great.

Scott, Aberdeen Business user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Bargain. 8GB RAM, AMD A10-7300 CPU, 1TB HDD, etc. Comparable performance to Intel i5-5200U.

I replaced the slow hard drive with a 120Gb SSD, did a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and all happy, no driver issues. The 1TB will go in a caddy and be used for backup.

A great machine for the price!
Bad points:
Ubunto 12.04 LTS is dated. Hard drive big (1TB), but slow (5400rpm).

I upgraded to Ubuntu 14.04 (LTS), but it suffered several driver issues, etc. So started from scratch with a new SSD and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
