Helpful Q&As

I'm thinking of getting this laptop to take to uni with me. Do you think it is light enough to carry around? Any major flaws with the laptop that you have discovered?

Hi, the laptop is a lot lighter to carry than my old sony vaio, i think you will be able to carry the laptop around, it doesn't feel heavy. So far ive not found any flaws. It's defo the best laptop ive ever bought. More

is the laptop good for a person who has a lot of course work and uni work

Hi. To be honest it's far better than that, if that's all you need I would consider something cheaper, i.e. something with a Core i3 processor! More

No it is not backlit but the mousepad is More

High specification provides good value for money.

Keys too small because of the number pad, which is probably only needed by a small fraction of users.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Opening web pages, streaming and downloading videos is very fast.

Full, compact keyboard is a pleasure to use.

Can cope with having several different applications open at once, which is good for multitasking.

Brushed steel case is attractive.
Bad points:
The fingerprint reader is infuriating sometimes! It can sometimes take four or five swipes of my finger before the reader recognises my fingerprint, which is extremely frustrating. A lot of the time I simply opt to manually enter my password.

Fairly heavy. It would be very nice if HP could work on reducing the weight of their laptops.

I haven't noticed any difference between the Beats Audio sound quality on this laptop and my old HP Compaq NX9105 laptop with regular sound. I think Beats Audio is just a gimmick.

Good points:
Looks goods. love the finger reader, saves loads of time signing in. Faster than my old dell laptop but still wish id bought the dell xp15 instead.
Bad points:
The keyboard is noisey to type and some keys sounds really loose. Absolutley hate the up/down button. It is half and half and so tiny to use. realy annoying. The dvd drive is a nightmare to open and takes several attenpts to acheive it also very tight to open and close.. Much prefer power cord to be plugged in a rear than right side.

Good points:
Like the mouse and keyboard layout. Thought it's a good price for what you get.
Bad points:
Found some of the usb points hard to use when first putting memory stick in, maybe just stiff because it's new?

John, Isle of Man General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very sleek design and runs well, although haven't tried top end games on it as yet. Webcam and microphone both very clear (great for skype calls). Has it's gimmicks (such as fingerprint scanner) but this adds rather than detracts from overall experience.
Bad points:
Speakers aren't great despite all the hype about beatsaudio - works best with headphones plugged-in. Does get quite hot and cooling fan is loud! DVD eject button is fiddly and have to push it exactly to open.
