Customer Reviews

Great function but lacking form at $10004
The cons:
1) No roll back of OS as drivers are scarce for XP
2) Finish is easily tarnished leading to pseudo-professional look. Gateways 'fingerprint resistant' finish around for years.
3) Most jacks are to the sides leading to an untidy setup. Some newer standard jacks not labelled .
4) Blu-ray ROM should have been included for price
5) No Installation/Driver Disk included in case hard drive files are unuseable.
6) keys are easily mistaken as it difficult to feel the boundaries of keys.
7) Screen is somewhat dimmer than expected for this class of machine
8) Alternate function keys are difficult to discern as they are all in WHITE
9) backlit keys would be a lot more useful than the backlit HP logo

The Pros:
1) meets performance specifications. 3D rendering in Autodesk Revit is brisk.
2) wide screen for those doing Arch/Engineering drawings.
3) temperature is lower than i would expect for 7200rpm HDD and quad core processor i.e. cool to hands
4) relatively quiet fan sounds more like ambient noise
5) no latches to break during open and close process
6) Full keyboard is a plus to those using programs for Accounting, Engineering,
7) Relatively slim and average 8+lbs weight considering size.
8) built-in camera has a built in light
9) sound is crisp and full of depth with subwoofer built-in
10)Crome looking accents add aesthetics are compensate for 'dust and sweat magnet' finish
11)Screen is crisp although I still believe additional brightness would welcomed by most users
12) although I believe keys should be better constructed as they are the primary input they are adequately firm to the touch to compensate for the lack in chamfered or indented or dished keys.

Verdict: great machine that requires greater thought into the ergonomics, appearance and overall form.

This laptop is a DREAM!5
I was looking for a laptop that would have the graphics features and speed of a desktop PC, and this is it! It handles my Adobe CS4 products and web design software beautifully. I bought the three-year warranty...expensive but I was told I'd be disappointed in support the first year otherwise. I plan to have this product a long time. It is sleek and beautiful. Finding a carrying case was a challenge, but the Toshiba 18.4" does the job. After much research and reading many reviews, I can see why there are very few complaints against this HP Pavilion!

Great choice4
I spent a Sunday afternoon doing research on laptops - since this was my first one ever, I took the time. I needed a laptop that could easily handle several CPU intensive programs running at the same time, so I limited my search to laptops that come with high-end CPUs and are reasonably priced. This one fitted that description, and now that I've been using it for a month, I can say that it delivers what I expected. I'm not giving it a five-star rating, because 4.5 hours of battery life seems overstated to me.
