Most helpful reviews

John, Kendal Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Basically bought as it is one of the few laptops that have dual hard drives which is essential for me. It is a fairly ordinary laptop with no flaws observed to date and pretty much average performance for this type of laptop..
Bad points:
A little limited on USB ports especially if you are using the combo SATA port. The supplied HP MediaSmart is rather cumbersome and slow and needs replacing with faster components.
No conventional modem built in, which creates difficulties for sending faxes and you need to purchase an external one.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic graphics and speed, especially for a laptop. Perfect for playing games and for office work- especially with 640GB HD.
Bad points:
Battery life would suffer due to increased performance but otherwise, no faults.

Dicky , St. Peter Port, Guernsey Music, gaming or video fan

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
The screen is good, showing reasonable detail when watching movies, especially, bluray. The speed of the processor and its ability to handle multiple actions, is very good, when compared to my previous laptop (hp dv9088ea).The sound quality is better too.
Bad points:
From my perspective, there are very few bad points to note.

Good points:
superb HD graphics, overall great performance across the board and buckets of storage for all music and movies...... windows 7 is very good

with all HD graphics and superb processing capabilities, the only minor drawback is the battery which is expected with the powerful processor and graphic card and memory...... the laptop is A1!
