Pros Nice Screen
Cons Loaded with tons of Add On Products/Freeware/Spyware. Support is worse experience ever. ....
Summary If you have to call HP Support MAKE SURE your Phone Battery is FULLY charged because you are going to be the phone for a LONG LONG Time.... I am very IT savvy and knew that I had a bad wireless LAN card but I had to jump through every single hoop including reimaging my PC and then had to ship it off for 3 weeks..... Over a two day period, I spent 12-15 hours working with HP troubleshooting the issue (I was on hold for 8 hours of it). I was told by the HP Tech that I had to do every troubleshooting step before they would do a replacement..... I lost 12 hours of my Life and my PC for 3 weeks .... all for a $15 part that I could have replaced myself.
Pros The Looks, the screen, the power for the money, Windows 7, HDMI + More
Cons A little over 5 lbs, Could be thinner but with a DVD RW I can forgive them, Comes with too many trial versions crapware. I deleted all this.

Cons Touch buttons are problematic
Summary No easy fix for volume and wireless touch buttons when they **********, which is frequent.
Pros Looks like a good deal. But you know the sayin

Summary Purchased this laptop (dv4-2045dx) at Best Buy for my daughters graduation present. Now 15 months later the Lcd screen died.After an hour long phone conversation with HP support which resulted with.. pay $300 to repair or your out of luck. The laptop only cost $550 to begin with. Luckily I will be able to do the repair myself, but thats not the point a laptop screen should last longer then 15 month's. I am currently looking for a new laptop for myself and it won't be a HP.
Pros Good size to use on your lap
Cons I purchased mine on Jan. 3, 2010 for around $600. In July, it wouldn't work and had to be shipped out, turns out the motherboard needed replacing. Then in March (14 mos after purchasing) the hard drive crashed, and guess what: it was out of warranty. HP c
Summary I would advise against purchasing this HP model, and I'll be steering clear of all HP products in the future.
