    Jonny – March 2, 2018:

    A decent device that deserves some appreciation and a bit of praise

    It’s now 2018 as I type this. I’ve had the absolute pleasure of owning this machine for maybe 3 or 4 years since I received it as a gift from a good friend(He used it once, stashed it away, then bought a Macbook) and it has served me faithfully as my daily driver ever since. A plus to getting it at the time, shortly after receiving this device Windows offered the free upgrade from Win8 to Win10 and it only became a greater experience.

    Even after all that time, through High School and well after, I still have ample room on the hard drive, still in decent condition and now currently in queue for some upgrades and basic upkeep/maintenance(loose hinge, replace thermal compound, HDD to SSD, add RAM, etc.).

    Time has taken but a minor toll on it. The top/lid/exterior gaining a few minor scratches but still looking good. Besides, a well placed sticker can fix any larger blemishes.
    The screen has accumulated only 2-3 dead pixels(but that’s expected after a few good years of constant use) the bright, edge to edge glass touch screen still looks fantastic with no scrapes, scratches or debris lurking on or within.
    A few of the keyboard keys, once all matte and lightly textured, now worn to a polished sheen, still perform as well as they did from day one. None have fallen off, jammed or lost their given characters either.

    The speakers equipped with “dts Sound+” are pleasant to use and have good quality sound. No screechy highs, grumbly lows or tiny sound, a dts sound manager program included has an equalizer if you feel you want to adjust it to your personal liking.
    The quality isn’t Bang&Olufsen quality sound like on the latest and greatest HP machines, but still plenty better than a lot of the competition then and even now.

    The exceptional 1.6 GHz(up to 2.4 GHz boost) quad core processor has enough power for what I’ve needed it for (even though it has a somewhat low base clock speed) like Internet browsing, word processing, PowerPoint and lots of Netflix and YouTube.
    Still probably has some power to spare with only the occasional fan throttle.
    With it’s integrated 2,147MB of Radeon graphics it’s capable of some light weight(very light) gaming like Minecraft or some S.T.A.L.K.E.R. on Low/Medium settings.

    Another overlooked bonus, having a CD/DVD optical drive is pretty great. New laptops seem to be phasing out the optical drives, favoring thin and light over raw utility. Being able to watch or play DVDs and old games makes any time offline much easier when you got some movies to watch. Plus you have the option of saving stuff to discs for a project or make a nice picture slideshow DVD for your grandparents and such. And even if you don’t want a optical drive, you can replace it with a optical bay hard drive mount to add more storage if the 750GB isn’t enough.

    Only cons I have is the lack of any on board Bluetooth and severe lack of available replacement parts. The first issue, you’ll need a wireless USB mouse if you don’t like using the touch pad or a USB Bluetooth dongle. But since this laptop has two USB 3.0 ports and a single USB 2.0, you just plug the USB dongle of choice into the USB 2.0 port.
    The second gripe, the severe lack of replacement parts and other compatible part donor laptops. I highly doubt that if you break the screen or another crucial part that you’ll be able to easily find a replacement.

    But the flaws are minuscule and haven’t affected me hardly. Certainly not enough to stop loving this laptop.

    All in all I love this computer. This wonderful device has served me well as my workhorse and hopefully will continue to for a good number of years to come.

    If anyone reading this is in the market for a budget/used laptop I highly recommend the
    HP Pavilion 15-n210dx if you can find it and get Windows10 installed on it, it’s become a bit of a unicorn these days but is worth it.
    I hear the 15-n211dx I hear is the same but with a slightly better processor so that’s an option too if you see it out there.

    And remember
    Care for your favorite and best devices as if you’ll never be able to get another of the same you love. You might not be able to.
