Looks Great

I own a HP Pavilion Dv7 from 2011, and it was considered a signature edition PC, and its still going strong to this day. I upgraded it to Windows 10, and it ran okay, went back to Windows 7 and its running like new again. Most HP laptops will last years to come. My first HP from 2006 still runs. This might be my next laptop.




Nice Laptop

After updating some software and drivers I'm set. One reviewer stated that back-light doesn't work. Not true, just turn it on and off using f5 key.




Great for gaming and buisness use!

I got this for my birthday and I noticed it had a lot of memory and was wicked fast. So then I checked up online for some information about this laptop and turns out that this was a gaming pc even though I use it to do work.





I admired it at the store, but when I got it home , I was delighted. I have been living in the past. I'm overwhelmed.




good deal it does well

So far so good, aside from it not being backlit as advertised it's a great machine




Solid and Enjoyable

I bought this earlier this month to replace a year-old Toshiba that fell apart. This HP is a solid machine that looks like it will last for a long time. It's fast and the screen is sharp and crisp. I'm not a gamer, so I can't attest to it's capability in that world. This is my first touch screen laptop and that's a very nice feature. I'm a mouse guy and hate touch pads, but the touch screen feature is very cool - quick and responsive. I haven't found any negatives yet. I like Windows 10 and I like that you can lock the system with a PIN instead of a password. I'm very happy with my purchase.





Only PC that seriously; I buy again.......................!!
