Keyboard is a little slippery due to sleek design but easy enough to get used to. Well designed/built and extra HP features such as the 5-in-1 media card reader, HDMI output, web cam, 3 gb of RAM, and light scribe / Dual Layer burner is a steal. Remote control is a little flimsy.
Even though Besy Buy sales people don’t work on commission, they must call it something else because they still push the extra warranty on you.
