Great for home or business
from Bayview Idaho
This computer meets or exceeds my expectations. The display is sharp and clear and the blu-ray player is a great addition. It has the capability to satisfy the personal user and the business user. The only con is the sound level is low while watching blu-ray movies, however the sound is more than adequate for cd music.

Great computer for the price.

Paid [$] [...]from Buydig.comBest deal on the internet at the time. 3/2011.[$] at most other sites.This is an upgrade for me from a 5 year old Toshiba. It has many more features that my old laptop did not have. I was looking for a laptop that had lots of memory, good sound, wireless n capabilities, litescribe and hd screen. Blu-ray is just a plus I suppose. I don't have any blu-ray disks nor have I even seen anything in blu-ray yet.I plan to use this laptop for light gaming, family video production, streaming Netflix, word processing, excel spreadsheets, web browsing, video conferencing locally and over seas.I like the HP fingerprint ID and Windows 7.I'm not so thrilled about the processor speed. I had a 5 year old 1.73mhz intel duo core processor. I believe this new laptop is a 1.80mhz quad core processor. It just doesn't seem much faster. This IS my first AMD processor computer. I'll more than likely make getting an intel processor a higher priority for my next computer.
