Pros Matte black finish, glare proof screen, red back-lit keys, speedy processing, music functions on reverse F-Keys. Almost instant booting and shut-down.
Cons Plastic body, Beats Audio is less than expected. Sounds much better than other notebooks, but I may still need to add some better external speakers. Only one USB 2.0 port. Lid is a fingerprint magnet.
Summary Excellent notebook that could have better sound.
Pros I've owned about a half dozen laptops over the years and this is the best by far. Fast, quick to boot, good color and great sound are what you get. Add to that a nice little keyboard, good size and weight and a battery that lasts.
Cons Two small complaints: 1. Keys are not back lit. A big oversight. 2. Spacing key is temperamental needing to be struck right at the top to advance. Frustrating.
Summary I shopped hard and feel that I did well.This is a great little laptop for business and personal use. Dependable, yet fun.
Pros red-backlit keyboard,
Cons This PC features the 2nd Gen Intel Core i5-2450M processor, which is different than the Intel A110 processor. the link here to Amazon selling this HP DM4-3090se Beats Edition has the Intel A110 processor instead of the Intel Core i5-2450M.
Summary check all the specs first before buying. the performance might be good but make sure you are getting what you are paying for in the first place. like paying for the Intel Core i5 processor and 4.4 lbs laptop and getting the Intel A110 processor and 7.8 lbs. laptop instead.
