Jill, Music, gaming or video fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great compact size. Keyboard is really nice too. Works well; I've had it for some time now and it's never let me down yet. I use it for general use plus electronic DJ software (Traktor Pro 2) and it copes pretty well.
Bad points:
The only thing that I would improve is the mouse pad; it doesn't have a side scrolling bar which I would definately add. Honestly; that's the only thing I could recommend for improvement.

Good points:
Slim compact unit battery life is great and you would of said apart from the lack of original packaging it was brand new.
Already recommended a refurbished laptop to some one and they bought a G62 i3

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Compact design. Not too garish even though it is a bit shiny. Easily portable. I5 is enough grunt for most purposes but a memory upgrade would help.
Keyboard adequate rather than great. Wouldn't like to be using it heavily all day - but that's not really the market this is aimed at.
Bad points:
Terrible trackpad design, the buttons are also part of the trackpoint. So, if you move your thumb even a millimetre when clicking, the pointer jumps you end up clicking in the wrong place. HP's designers and QA must have taken a day off there.

Good points:
Beautiful paperweight!
Bad points:
Started heating up after an year of purchase even thou it had very little use (max an hour every day). Showed it to a repair guy and he showed me a warehouse full of (exaggeration implied) HP laptops that died after an year or less. Hardware is seriously flawed, motherboard is boiling and ATI video card doesn't help at all !!Never going to buy an HP product again and will advise you to keep away too.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Looks good, easy to carry about and doesn't compromise on the power of the computer. battery life is about 5-6 hours when using a combination of programmes and watching dvds.
Bad points:
Metal finish easily dented. Heavier than I expected for the size but understandable given it can do anything a larger laptop can do, its just smaller screen size.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Feels solid and has performed well so far with a good battery life. The battery coped with me downloading all the extra software and updates required when setting up a new machine. Just had it a couple of days but happy so far.
Bad points:
Mouse pad a bit jumpy at times but I think I will get learn how to handle it.
