To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I took a chance and bought this laptop used for $400. It was 1000% worth it! For a used laptop, it looked brand new. I got it for my niece for Christmas. She's off to college next year, so she needed something a little more high end. I have the 15-bp1xx and it served me well through college. I believe this one will do the same of my niece. She also wanted a laptop that could play SIMS. Her last one (I don't remember the model) tended to overheat. She set everything up and has been playing SIMS nonstop since she got it. Truly serves it's purpose well and worth the money.
I'm not a gamer - let's get that out there right off the bat. I have no idea if this laptop would suit gamers, but as a teacher who uses MS Office, Google Apps for education, and Zoom extensively, this laptop is great. I also use a few molecular modelling and other memory-intensive science apps and have found no issues at all using this device. The display is vibrant and touchscreen is sensitive but not overly so. The touchpad was easy to adapt to (I am primarily a mouse guy) and is a very convenient size. Overall, I really like this machine and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good all-around laptop at a respectable price.
Perfect for what I need, except for the poor webcam, so only 4 stars. The screen is very nice, excellent colors and bright. This computer arrived in perfect condition, and setup was simple, and without any problems. Wifi works beautifully, and very fast. I really like the simplicity of Windows 11, and think it's the best OS yet. The only issue I have is the webcam quality, very grainy video and pictures, but I'll just but an external webcam to use for Zoom meetings and other things. The price is perfect for my budget, and think this laptop is a very good value for what it is.
I do not regret buying it but to me having had it now for maybe 2 months and the white letters on the keyboard are beginning to already seem to fade away is not a good thing. I predict in another 6 months I would have to then add an external keyboard to this so I can use it and see the keys. HP you can do better than this, I expect this from an Acer not an HP.
