I was a bit nervous about which type of laptop to buy, but i found this one to be the best for my budget. Originally i had been thinking about getting a mac, but the price of the one with a good amount of memory was out of my price range. i found that the new HPs with Windows 7 is better than i thought it would be. The format is different compared to older versions of Windows (I had Windows XP), and is refreshing because it has many similar features to a mac. Even though its set up differently from the old Windows programs, i find it easier to use.
The speed of the computer is fast, the internet connection is good, has great resolution, the design is sleek, has good memory space, and is more user friendly, for those who are not geniuses when it comes to computers.
Most aspects of the computer are good, and I've only seen two problems. I haven't been able to find a way to upload webcam pictures to websites such as Facebook, etc. because the webcam pictures don't save under a file or folder, and you can see all the fingerprints over the surface and touch pad of the laptop, even right after you've removed them. Otherwise, its a good quality computer.
Overall, it is a great buy, and depending on the extra features you want, they have similar options for people with smaller or larger budgets.
