This HP laptop is garbage.
I initially bought this at a local Fry's Electronic store a couple weeks ago because my old laptop was straining to do the most simple graphics tasks and I needed something in a pinch (and on a budget). So, I got this laptop for $399. I took it home and was unimpressed with the design and the overall feel of it. The keypad area felt cheap and didn't have much differentiation from the rest of the chassis. The single dual function mouse-click button is extremely clunky and I found myself having to press the button harder than I normally would in order for it to register a click. Plus, the thing is ungodly large, clunky, and heavy for a 17" laptop. There is NO sexy factor involved with this unit. Even the color (beige) made it feel even cheaper.
I understood that it was never intended to play graphics intensive games, but after not being able to comfortable ergonomically while using it to edit video (and also feeling like I made a horrible decision of choice in laptop), I took it back the next day and told the customer service that I benchmarked it and it came under it's listed specs in order to receive a full store credit instead of simply swapping for a same model or charging me a 15% restocking fee.
After looking at the various laptops (Acer, Compaq, Toshiba, HP, Lenovo), and wanting to keep my purchase close to $400, I found they had a new 15.4" Sony Vaio for $379 and I quickly jumped on it and never looked back!
Bottom line is...DO NOT BUY THIS LAPTOP! You will have the worst user experience! HP opted to go cheap on this model (cheap feeling LED screen, cheap keyboard, cheap keypad, and ultra heavy!) For $20 less, I got a Sony Vaio VPCEH-11FX with a great LED monitor, has a great ergonomic feel overall, the keyboard rivals mid-range laptops, is built solid, lighter, longer battery life, and runs quiet and cool while still giving me very good power for graphics editing.
