    Overall, for this day and age, and for the price, I’d say you’re getting a very solid piece of hardware., March 16, 2017

    Product Review

    I’d like to give you my honest opinion on the product in hopes to help you along with your purchase. I’m an average joe and don’t have anything to gain from this review other than a place to put my thoughts.

    My previous laptop specs were a Toshiba 2.1 ghz, 4 GB ram, 500gb hard drive. I purchased it back in 2013. I spent maybe 350$ on it back in the day. It had slow-down due to years of use, and the fan had become loud. It’s still functional, and served it’s purpose, but it was time to upgrade and move on.

    Spending a little more to double my ram, I decided on this HP product. Now I’ve had problems with HP back in 2009 with a motherboard crash 1 month after the warranty expired. I learned my lesson to never buy a laptop over $500+ again. Given that experience I was hesitant to buy this product. Enjoying the sleek design, multitude of gizmo’s, and comparatively not finding a better buy for the price – I took the plunge.

    Before I go further, you should know I will be using my product for business via the internet and casual gaming. Couldn’t tell you much about having multiple apps open at the same time given that might demand a heavy load (I.e. quick-books, excel, adobe editor, pro-tools, streaming services and a game etc etc). If you’re pushing that many things at once, maybe it’s time to have a couple CPU’s.

    Right off the bat, I noticed that the product was made in China, and it was sent in to be refurbished by a gentleman in Kentucky. The refurbished risk was a chance, but really, in this day you’re getting a pretty advanced package for the price.

    About the exterior;
    It’s nice. Has a well thought out and put together frame. The F1-F12 keys are easy to use for adjusting brightness or quickly modifying the volume. The only problem I’m having is that the up,down arrow keys are small. In efforts to have a sleek design, they minimized the up,down key area. I have average man hands, so it takes some time to get used to.

    The outside of the laptop smudges easily with your naturally oily fingers. Will have to pick up a 20$ peripheral case to compensate and not look like the rag-o-muffin at the coffee shop.

    Everything else is as you would expect from a laptop. Touch-screen is great for apps/games like Hearth-Stone, exhaust fan and power cord input are reasonable. The charge cord has a 3 prong wall input. As a minor annoyance, I’d prefer the two prong without the 3rd input due to extension cords strategically placed near my couch, but hey, I’ll upgrade and deal with it.

    It’s nice having two usb’s on opposite sides of the laptop – one right side, and two on the left.

    Even though your computer has Bluetooth functionality, it also helps having a headphone input. Luckily good-guy HP included one. (*cough* Apple Iphone 7 fail)

    Because the laptop has a sturdy but light compact gathering, you can slightly hear a bit of the inner workings. The processor has a slight “thinking” sound. The fan is quiet and subtle. As I record voice-overs, I don’t think the sound is loud enough to interfere. The fan being located on the side of the product also helps keep things cool when it’s on your lap.

    The display is nice and feels high quality. Colors are crisp, and the framing of the screen is appropriate. When going from a dark to light screen, there’s a slight adjustment time to allocate brightness. Not really anything to complain about, but more just something slightly different. (It’s probably adjusting for dark to light pixels as not to shock or hurt your eyes. No idea if you can turn this on or off, but really, it’s nothing to complain about).

    Power on – What’s goin on?
    Initial set-up takes about 30 minutes with an internet connection. It will download a 4-6 gb WIndows 10 update in the background once it’s up.

    I’d say it takes 15 seconds to get to the Window’s 10 log in screen, 15 more seconds to get fully up, and functional with everything running coming in at a combined 45 seconds.

    Toshiba is notorious for throwing too much crap onto your computer you’ll never need. Luckily HP gives you the pork and beans with this product. Also, during Windows 10 setup, I found myself custom setting things up as to turn off minor annoyances like Cortana or notifications.

    The only thing I wish would have been included were a better notepad application. I ended up downloading google docs straight to my computer, so now I have a word-pad app.

    I downloaded audacity to get an idea on the integrated microphone quality. I noticed the app ran very smooth. You can easily hop in an out of it, and I had Hearth-Stone running at the same time. The muli-tasking on this computer is nice.

    The onboard mic is average. It can do the job, and tracks appropriately, but if you’re looking to use it for anything other than Skype, I’d say pick up a 50$…

    We could not get this laptop to do anything other than check email out of the box. It attempted to do Windows 10 updates and 10 other updates for various drivers. We have decent wifi and it would attempt to download for hours and no progress even attempted some updates overnight and they all ended up failing. We called HP and they said they could not help us that they thought this was a software problem. None of our warranties covered that. I had purchased the 2 year extended warranty as well. This was a college graduation gift for my daughter and the guy on the phone was demanding she pay them $35 and $14.95 a month for the “HP Tech” guy to troubleshoot what was wrong with her brand new laptop. She refused. We tried taking the laptop to a relative’s house who is also a computer tech and has really high speed internet connections to see if we could get all the needed updates installed. They all failed there as well. Windows 10 was reinstalled as a last ditch effort. All the updates needed on the laptop seem to have been installed now. We will likely consider a different computer brand next time around. I understand that computers can be dead or non functioning out of the box. Why pay for all the extra warranties if they will not help you?

    Was a little skeptical about buying a laptop on Amazon with limited description/reviews. Honestly have to say this is a great computer for the price. Even though it is a HDD and not SSD, I’ve hardly noticed any delay. 1TB HDD plus 8GB of memory really makes this an awesome buy. Well built, very sturdy, keyboard feels great. Touch screen is very responsive and so is the trackpad. Overall, I am very pleased.
