Martin, London Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
So far so good. You need to update the version of HP QuickPlay that comes with it to get the BluRay player working. HDMI connection is good, but sometimes a little hit and miss and sometimes have to reboot to get it working, but once its working its fine. Sadly watching iplayer in fulll screen mode on TV over hdmi is a little jerky for some reason, compared to watching it not full screen. Not sure what the cause is. Overall very happy for the price, seems like a good quality laptop.
Bad points:
Nothing really yet.
