It's been years since I stopped buying anything from HP. It seems they sell poor products and make money off the spare parts. They seem to have a lot of heating and lag issues even on their premium laptops. I just can't stand the HP laptops these days.

Whats your experience with the HP laptops?

I recently bought one after my current laptop broke. That's my current device I'm on now and the only computer I have. For many years I bought Toshiba laptops and I will say that they outlast just about any other brand and usually last the longest. Though I found a fairly decent deal for around $500. I am a bit frustrated though that even though it said 8 gb of ram, there's actually only 5.9 some gb of ram available to the device. They store an extra 2 gb or so for video playing. I may have to look into how you can get the full amount. I thought it was a bit deceiving. I think they do this on a lot of their laptops.

Gotta say i agree on 80% of this but there's something to be told, laptops weren't made for heavy duty work, they were not made for gaming, rendering or virtualizing no matter how PRO GAMER they try to say that those computers are, heat is something that nobody can really stop, it makes sense that a separated gpu will help on cpu temps but at the end of the day the poor air flow from inside will melt sensible parts and the computer will be useless.

If you use it for browsing the web, chatting or office related software then it's fine. Think about the utility before getting one. Maybe investing on a desktop computer is better.

I've been using a HP Pavilion (17-e105sa) for the last 8 or 9 years.. It's been pretty reliable, although it's gone through x2 DVD drives - possibly due to heat. The battery is also pretty useless now, but given its age it's somewhat expected. The only upgrades I've done are upgrading the RAM and installing an SSD.

I'm probably overdue an upgrade, and had actually purchased a new desktop in the last Black Friday sales, although it seems to have gone missing between being dispatched from Lenovo and being collected from DHL. I wasn't really getting anywhere with either company, so for the first time ever have actioned a chargeback through my bank.

I haven't used HP in years. I've gone through 3 MSI laptops though and I know I won't ever touch them again either. I currently have an Alienware 17 R5 that i'm happy with and the thermals to performance are pretty good.

Honestly you can hate on them, but outside of bloatware, HP, Dell, Lenovo, Acer all make the same PC. Maybe a slight difference in the shell, but they all have problems.
