E222371 - HP 11.6" Alex Herchcovitch 4GB RAM 500GB HD w/ Sleeve & Mouse
Poor internal workmanship
Flimsy plastic internal components. Metal screws into weak plastic parts. Falling apart in less than 5 months. Will not buy another HP.
When I first saw this lap top on clearance I was skeptical. I really couldn't decided and then it was gone. I told my husband "it wasn't meant to be" and continued to look at laptops for return to college. A week later it was back on the site! I hurried up and ordered it but was still concerned that it would not suit my needs. I was so wrong. I very very pleased with my purchase. I use it on my home wifi and I have had no issues at all in the week I have been playing the laptop. I love that it is a sophisticated feminine as opposed to something pink and fluffy as I am already in the mental health field and want to remain looking professional. I would buy this HP again in a heartbeat.
really wanted to be happy with this computer...but sadly back it goes..never got the mouse to work..keyboard way to stiff for heavy usage.. hands started hurting..loved the size for travel and it is so nice looking and so i really wanted to be happy with it..
but it is very slow and seems to have a temperament of it's own and not a nice one at that.. i'm sad to send it back
More problems than I can mention!
This computer is totally adorable in appearance and I had high hopes for it. I had problems with it from the beginning; the mouse wouldn't work properly, very hard to control, difficult to operate. The screen is always going from smaller to bigger on it's own...like it zooms itself in and out . Tons of glitches. The keyboard locks up constantly and random things come up on the screen that I have NOT selected. It just goes crazy like has a mind of it's own. Never seen anything quite like it. I have had system errors and countless ridiculous things appearing on the screen out of nowhere, similar to the kind I had with computers that were about to crash after several years and this thing is brand new! YUCK. I didn't want to return it but I am disgusted with it. I have owned lots of computes from all different manufacturers and this one is possibly the worst performing, slowest computer I've ever purchased. There is no way it will last past my easy pay payments! UGH! Horrible disappointment. A Lemon.
I've had this laptop for a few months and it's great. It's much faster than the Acer Aspire One it replaced. The sound is very good. I am not sure what speed others expect from such a small computer. I cannot comment on the mouse as I don't use it. I was thrilled to be able to use MS Word and Excel after being stuck with MS Works for a while. The Starter editions of these programs are fine. Lack of a DVD drive is not a problem for me. It easily connected to my wireless printer. It's also pretty, which is just an added bonus.
pretty doesnt make up for its quality
I am usually a very rational, and frugal person when it comes to purchasing especially expensive items. But unfortunately i saw this cute laptop with its unique embellishment and it being an Hp laptop, I assumed this would be a good laptop to start with for college. FAIl. Three times my keyboard has locked, the computer has logged of, or shut down on me several times, its extremely slow at times. Now as im internally punching myself in the head for buying this laptop. Im looking to return it, save some extra more money to buy another laptop that can actually withstand the workload of a colege student, most likely an product from Apple. Grr im so frustrated. Rant over.
Really Wanted To like it
My husband bought this for me to replace my computer that crashed. My last computer had windows 7 as well. I REALLY wanted to like this computer but I cant. Its being sent back. Its VERY SLOW when you are trying to view pictures ect. It freezes (facebook is where it freezes the most) I find the display not good either I cant find a happy place its either to bright or not bright enough. My view is If its doing all this within the first 3 weeks what will be happening in 3 or 6 months NOPE Its Going Back! :(
glad I bought it
I really love my HP. I have not had any problems with anything. It works great for me. I surf the web mostly and do things like shop at QVC. It is also a very pretty computer.
Wish I Had Bought An Apple or Dell!
This may be the first negative review I have written, but here goes. I am just not impressed with this HP product. As several others have also said, this computer hangs frequently and also seems very slow as compared to my old Dell computer, also purchased from QVC. The keyboard felt fine, although a little small. The mouse does not work well at all. I am in the process of sending this back. It is just too costly a product to not be satisfied with the performance. The design is beautiful, but I am going to stick with Apple or Dell for my replacement (I love my Apple IPAD 2)!
HP Fan Club Member!
I love HP products and I have been using this little cutie for a month or so. I am rating 4 stars because although it is good, I find that I enjoy my 17" HP lap top better.
Pros: Size is convenient, it is lightweight, and will fit in any of my oversized purses. Start up is amazingly fast, and I find myself on the Web quickly with very little wait time. Likewise, Internet use is also relatively swift. It is lovely to look at and I enjoy utilizing the Alex Herchocovitch screen saver~Impressive looking as I use this unit for my small business meetings. Great sound, also with the included Beats audio. I like the mat finish of the touchpad, as I abhor using a mouse. Good texture on keyboard surfaces.
Cons: Sometimes freezes during applications for no apparent reason. Fonts are small, although you can enlarge two ways by application as well as pinching the touchpad...When you do this, however, you lose part of your screen due to the magnification. I miss my numeric keypad, as having to enter numbers from the top is a bummer. I also miss not having an internal optical drive...But I knew this before I purchsed. I have purchased an external one so that I can pair with my HP wireless printer and other cd/dvd uses.
So, overall, I would say this is a good little pc and I would not hesitate to recommend given the above exceptions. It's workable, convenient, and a very good value for the price.
ADORABLE, BUT TOO SLOW
Wanted this little laptop so bad because it is so pretty & I was so ready to love it! It just can't handle much of anything. Was getting sick of waiting for the spinning to stop just to find out that it can't or won't connect to the site. We have 2 other smaller similar laptops/netbooks & they handle all that this hp couldn't. Got so bad that I wanted to just throw it out the window! lol...had to return. Might be perfect for a younger child that is just starting out w/ the computer, but not for someone that wants a smaller back up laptop to travel w/ or bring into other rooms instead of lugging the larger one. I will probably look into a tablet, maybe an ipad. This one is just too frustrating. But...the design is GORGEOUS!
I bought this laptop for my 12 year old daughter. She loves it ! It is the perfect size for her.
