I was just given this laptop at work and I absolutely hate it with passion.
Is big, is heavy, is bulky.
In order to keep the keyboard centered in your hands, you have to move the laptop towards the right (or left, if you are left handed). But then is not centered within your field of vision. And if you center the screen so that the webcam is pointing straight at your face, then you'll have to slide your hands towards your left side. If you need to type a lot, that's very uncomfortable!
The earphones and microphone ports are at the front of the laptop, again, very awkward position, and gets in the way when you are typing.
Finally, the think pad is a nightmare. The laptop is so poorly designed that your hand will keep brushing on the pad so the cursor will move all over the place when you are typing. Then to make matters worse, I could no disable the touch pad because the computer came with no drivers for it!!! I had to find the drivers myself and install them just so I could disable the **** thing.
Great Display, nice keyboard , graphic drivers works great on windows, on linux there is a little problem with radeon driver but AMD works on it so with 3.10 kernel it would be great. Goes very Hot, i don't like it.
install drivers it will be cool as ice! first install softpaq from hp and then softpaq will find other drivers and then your problem will be solved! send me mail if solved.
