E251469 - HP Pavilion 17.3" Notebook 4GB RAM, 500GB HD, 2.4GHz
I love this computer. HP makes great products and QVC makes them all affordable with their easy pays. QVC is the greatest.
Good for what I needed it for. I just started college classes so I needed something to take to school and work at home. I'm not a huge laptop fan,but this one has a large screen and the number keypad so it makes it easier to work with. It's a good machine for the price and the easy pay made it affordable.
I do wish it came with Powerpoint. I'm not sure why they put Word and Excel but they leave off the Powerpoint.
Bought this laptop because I have started a home business. I was so excited about this purchase..... until I got home. The set up was actually quite easy and the first hour that I had it, it worked great. Then, the laptop decided it didn't want to connect to the internet. It would show a full signal but did not have internet access. I have spent over 7 hours on the phone with HP support. They so far have not been able to fix it. They are now going to send me new parts. (Wow! New parts for a brand new computer? Who would have thought that would be necessary?!) I will probably be sending this laptop back. It is not worth my time or money to have another headache in my life. If you are looking for a great laptop that works great, keep looking!
This is the first thing we've ever bought from a TV shopping network. Our old laptop finally died, and we needed a new one quickly. We did our homework by comparing laptops on the web and in the stores, and finally decided on an HP. We've had this one for about two weeks now and couldn't be happier with it.
Its looks, along with that huge 17.3" HD screen, are amazing. (One note, if you buy this, take the time to adjust the display graphics to your own preferences... once we did that, which took no time, we were amazed at the color saturation and clarity of the display). We use it mainly for MS Word, Excel, photo touching up and the Internet, including streaming TV shows and even hooking it up to our HDTV (which is very easy). The Intel dual-core processor along with the 4GB of DDRAM makes this laptop FAST - we had read differing opionions on this and worried that we might have to spend more $$ for a heavier-duty processor, but this one is very very fast. Confident in QVC's blanket 30-day return policy, I've actually tried overloading the processor and memory a bit by simultaneously running a scan, a software download AND a video, and there were no delays or glitches. Plus the 500GB HD will hold everything that our old laptop did PLUS everything from our desktop pc too, making it perfect for storage and backup. The only thing that we wish this laptop had is a backlit keyboard, but we fixed that problem with an inexpensive clip-on booklight.
We still have two weeks left in our 30-day return zone, but we're confident that this slick-looking, fast, powerful laptop will be with us for years to come! So far, we are very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend it. HP's got a winner here.
