    I like the HP laptops and some of them have good graphics cards too, I got this one http://goo.gl/XT3Oj with an Nvidia Geforce so I can play video games well too.

    I’m sorry. I’ve had nothing but problems with my HP Pavillion. I wouldn’t accept another one if it were free.

    Firstly I feel that everyone should have a laptop or PC of some sort. It is therefore great to read that HP has re-designed one of their entry level laptops that not only looks great and performs well but also is affordable for parents to buy their children.

    I agree with Liz, mine burns my leg, smoke came out of it once and the corner melted off, all in the first year
