Pros Fast, I can play every game I have loaded, Photoshop CD5 Loves the ATI graphics card, Sound and Display are amazing. 5 plus hours on Intel Graphics and about 2 plus hours with the ATI cranked up all the way.
Cons Reinstalling is a pain,you must use HP's drives to get the most from the hardware. There are a few areas where things just don't line up perfect. Track pad works but the buttons are a part of the pad and resting your thumb on the button is haphazard.
Summary Love the laptop at the price, looks and feels like a boutique system. all in all its a 9 out of 10 for me...
Pros It's pretty and the specs ought to make it even more appealing.
Cons Freezes up constantly, even with a fresh windows 7 install. The graphics should be able to play any game but it cannot even play simple games. CS5.5 is worthless as well.
Summary This is a mid to high end computer and my wife's 2 year old Dell out performs it on adobe CS5.5 Design prem.
I would not recommend this computer because of both the color red being off and the fact that even after clean installs it freezes up multiple times per day during regular production work. Forget about gaming on it aside from the windows built in time wasters.
