H/P products i loathe, printers, laptops etc. I stick with Dell when i can.
I am not fond of my HP.
I have a Sony Viao and am very happy with it
I prefer a 57 year old brunette with lots of s p u n k.
Sony and HP (and Apple) are made by patching together stock Chinese parts.
Get an Asus next time. They design their own parts in the U.S. and guarantee their laptops even if you drop it and break it the first year!
I'm a Mac.
