Price, design, battery life, performance on office tasks

Cashback offer on this laptop was very attractive

Very much a case of buyer beware. I filled in the cashback offer within the deadline. HP then advised they couldn't find any trace of the cashback claim and my claim was rejected. Caveat Emptor!!!

Its a nice laptop in just about every way, very good screen, feels well built.

I think we have a "wrong 'un". It keeps locking up, spinning up the empty CD drive, maxing out HDD and CPU for no reason. Probably not a good indicator of what this machine ought to be.
