Andre, Swindon General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very well made machine that performs well and has all the features I want. This laptop has a "quality" feel to it. I am not a gamer but feel this machine would hold it's own in this area too.
Bad points:
Big. Not really a bad point as I wanted a large laptop as a desktop replacement but be aware it is large and is not really suited for mobility. Excellent desktop replacement though and easily moved around where a desktop is not.

Good points:
Seemed ok but was not given the chance to do a proper evaluation....See bad points!!!!!!!!
Bad points:
This computer would not easily connect to the Internet. Wirelessly.
Very Very unstable ie hit and miss.
HP technical staff did their best to solve the problem.
Could not. After about 10 days I contacted Curry's and returned computer for a refund.
Curry's very helpful.
At home we have a Desktop and Dell laptop....no problem in connecting to the Internet....o2 broadband.
Have now purchased a Sony Viao Laptop.
Connected to the Internet Wirelessly in 10 Minutes.
Also to our Wireless printer.
The HP Pavilion laptops I suggest have an inherent design problem with the wirless tecnology.
I should have read the reviews on this Pavilion range before Purchase as I see that I am not alone in having this problem.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic Entertainment Laptop. Has a two 250GB hard drives (500GB). Great 17.3 Wide-screen display. Quick Duo Core 2 Processor 2 (P8600 2.4Ghz). Unique black glossy finish makes the laptop stand out from the rest.
Bad points:
Such a "High Spec" should really come with a blu-ray player. Is quite heavy and not portable (but that was expected)

I must say i have found it difficult in finding a suitable laptop case (but minor issue)
