Good price, specs are solid, and HP is a known manufacturer. For its price, it was quite thin and light - but that is becoming more popular these days
Super Fast Proccesor
Easy To Use
The build quality is less than optimal, but not surprising at this price bracket. The plastic just feels light. I appreciate that the battery was removable, but it wasn't solidly locked in
Very Short Battery Life
I received it today and it already will not start and blinks an error code near the cap lock key 3 blinks, pause, 3 blinks
