Returning - loud touchpad buttons

Pros: easy setup, nice screen
Cons: loud touchpad
Model Number: HP Pavilion dv7-6c43cl
"I bought the HP Pavilion dv7-6c43cl a few weeks ago. I am returning it to Costco because I don't like the touchpad. When I click the touchpad buttons, it makes a loud clicking noise that I find very irritating. This probably wouldn't bother most people as it does me. My brother and sister-in-law each own one and they love it. Also, when I perform certain commands, I can hear things clicking on the inside of the machine. It makes it sound rather poorly made. Finally, I don't see as big a difference in the speed of the i7 processor as I expected. It could be my home network is at issue. I've spent a lot of time online. Thank goodness for Costco's return policy."

Never buy another HP

"Like the HP TX2000 this is a great little portable space heater. The TX2000 got so hot sometimes I can even fry an egg on it. This is not as hot but compared to other laptops with the icore processors they are like ice cubes relatively speaking.
This is of course useless as a computer but it keeps me really warm in the winter. And don’t bother to make any system recovery discs because they don’t work. I was not able to do system recovery and reset to factory defaults even with the discs that I got from HP.
If you are swayed by the 5 star reviews with how great this computer runs, just look at the specs there is nothing special about these HP laptops compared to comparable laptops from the competitions. I used to be a HP fan too but they have gone downhill and I will never buy another HP again.

Great laptop

Pros: very fast, great graphics, good price, good battery life
Cons: no "num lock" indicator, no blu-ray drive, no backlit keyboard
"We've owned this for about a month as a desktop replacement. So far, it has been a fantastic decision on our part. It is blazing fast, especially compared to our old desktop, it has 4 USB ports, which is great. The screen is nice and big and the clarity and graphics are superb. Some of the HP software can be a bit annoying but we haven't yet discovered whether or not they are useful. Maybe they will be in time. The sound from the speakers is really quite good, probably good enough to watch a movie. So far the battery life has been excellent. We aren't really heavy users but do occasionally surf the net on the couch and the battery has lasted for at least 2-3 hours. This is also a huge improvement for us.
The only thing that I can't stand is that there is no light indicator for the "num lock" key so you never know if it is on. I know this is a minor thing, but it is really irritating. I wish there was some way to know. They have other indicator lights on other keys (WiFi, Sound, etc) it makes no sense why they wouldn't have put one on the Num Lock key. This version also doesn't have a Blu-Ray drive which isn't the end of the world, but something to consider. Lastly, the keyboard isn't backlit, which would have been a huge bonus. I did't even know how cool that was until I was playing with a friends Mac, oh well.

You will be pleased!

Pros: keyboard size, finger swipe
Cons: no blue ray my choice.
Model Number: dv7-6C43CL
"I purchased this laptop for my wife, and all my expectations have been met. I've been watching and waiting for the perfect device for the right price and Costco delivered. Excellent processor speed, very nice display, ease of use and just the right amount and choice of bells and whistles. Its been about of month since I purchased and setup for use. I have had absolutely no problems or issues at all. The performance has met my expectations, I researched and wanted the best processor available for the right price. The I7 gen 2 is the most important component in this device, as I said great peformance.
I could have chosen from a number of different configurations of the laptop, so when this one came up on sale I rushed and picked one up before they ran out. What I wanted? Speed, display size and quality, disk space, and good sound quality, all in a nice looking chassis. I wanted the Blue Ray dvd but was willing to give it up for the price, we probably would not watch many dvd's on it anyway, I get more use out of the Beats audio (a little bit over rated, but the sound quality is better than most laptops). I'm suprised its not heavier considering the size, that was a nice suprise. The battery life is good as well. Typically you power on one of these monsters and you are lucky to get a hour out of them, but not this one you get several hours of play time. If you want a grest desktop replacment this is the one buy!
Happy computing!

RETURNED - Impossible to Factory Restore

Pros: battery life is great
Cons: click pad noisy
Model Number: DV7
"After getting a Trojan virus I was unable to do a true factory settings recovery/restore. Tried several times and contacted HP support and followed their directions which left laptop unable to start. I used to get viruses on my Dell. After a factory restore I was good to go. Not so with HP. Tried all their recovery and restore options but certain files were never deleted!"
