Pros Light weight
Cons Battery drops 10% when PC is first turned on and not plugged into a power source, and screen is not as bright. After only 15-20 minutes, battery is down 50%!
Cons After 2 weeks of flawless use my computer experiences chronic unexpected system shutdowns and will no longer load my start page to complete a system recovery to a previous date.
Summary I did a lot of research before purchasing this computer and only recently have found poor reviews. This computer malfunction is a huge hurdle in my academic life right now. Not pleased with the problem!
Pros load up time is fast , controls on laptop very good. webcam cool lots of cool stuff you can do with it . Heat what heat stays cool for hours, fans quite . Light, can pick it up with one hand or a couple fingers. Burner fast with anything.
Cons The only thing I found bad , was the screen gets dusty fast , the mouse pad looks like i need to use windex on it when am done.
Summary All and all great deal . If your a student your like it stand out where every you are using it.cost is below 700 hundred . If your not a Mac head this would be a great laptop to get. All spes on it are good check them out your self. If you get one I know you like it alot.
Pros Great specs, especially for $800.
Cons Took a long time to set up, CD drive broke within a month of purchase, sound had to be configured to work, not much battery power, freezes a lot for having 4 gigs of RAM and a good processor.
Summary I don't know who to blame, HP or Microsoft, but this computer is awful. Get a macbook for 200 bucks more.Also takes forever to startup and shutdown.

Pros Nice styling. Webcam is nice. Mic is nice. looks good when I watch DVD's on it. I haven't noticed the glare the others are complaining about.
Cons Only 2 USB ports!!! I can't believe I'm the first to complain about that. Horrible battery life. I get about an hour with my sprint card plugged in. My internal wireless card just went today, but HP is sending me another... BOO HP!!!
Summary My 2nd, & last HP I will be buying. Just tired of the whole windows thing in general I think. It really is compact and does come loaded with nice features/equipment for the price I guess. Better battery life, more USB ports & I'd rate this 4 stars.
