fantastic laptop

 

I had a Toshiba that was 5 years old. Purchased the HP. Pavilion. I wanted a laptop with a CD player. A lot of the laptops do not have that feature. The sound is very good. The main feature that I like is the back light. It is so easy to see the keys...

HP Pavilion

 

My wife and I needed a new computer to replace one that went out on us. This one works well for what we need it for. My only dislike so far is the scroll and cursor are hard to use and frankly aggravates me, but for the money it'll do.
