Experience: 1 Months


-Nice Design
-heat dissipation
-power for price
-available modifications
-fixed/dynamic setting for GPU in bios (added over last summer due to dynamic switching issues.
-overclocks super easy to 800MHz core, 100% stable
-gunk can get stuck in metal seam
-no backlit keyboard
-installing new windows problems
-Fan issue - isolated to mine though, I just got unlucky.
-not the best viewing angles on the screen
-"beats audio" is garbage but I knew that before I got this from reading online. Just disable the "beats audio" in the hp beats control panel and crank the bass to +4 in the "tone control" tab of the windows control panel. Above par audio but still no subwoofer like some of those high-end acers.

-Becomes unresponsive randomly for no apparent reason. I say this as someone experienced in computers for 5+ years. I'm starting to wonder if it has something to do with the hard drive.
For $899.98 on sale, this is a good deal. The 6770m is essentially a slightly underclocked desktop 6670. The heat dissipation is good, the radeon card runs really cool. It's the CPU that heats up. But mine has been able to fold for at least an hour on all four cores without going below 2.3GHz (started out at 2.8 lol). From what I have heard, similar specced laptops will clock down to 1.7GHz or less quite quickly due to heat.
Dunno if I just got lucky (edit I got lucky. my replacement doesn't have a thermal sensor), but one of my ram modules has a thermal sensor.
Now the bad. I can't seem to install my own retail windows. It needs the AHCI driver but won't accept the one from HP. I will be trying to install using a cd as opposed to usb at some point because I read that might be the issue. I will update  this review when I do. I will also update  with my success or failure in running linux/UNIX when I try that. It is known to have issues on switchable graphics.
update   1: After a week my fan started sounding like when you burn a dvd... when it was on idle. NCIX gave me no hassle. The only thing is waiting to ship it there and then NCIX to ship it back. I wanted an exchange because I really like this thing. And from my research online, this seems to be an isolated incident.
FYI bitcoin hashing performance: 95/115 MH/s stock/800MHz. GUIminer -v -w 128
update  2: still haven't tried any of that... full time job... commute... This review was modfied by poster e 03-06-12 05:53 PM
