We took this computer back to Best Buy and exchanged it for this Lenovo Ideapad. The HP was just too darn slow. It wouldn't play youtube videos well, and wasn't even able to handle Pandora radio very good sometimes. We liked the screen size, and how it didn't take up much room, but it was just a basic mom-and-pop computer for someone who didn't really want to use it for much of anything. The Lenovo is the same one I'd bought for my office, and it is super fast and by waiting until now it only cost $60 more than this HP and has way more under the hood.
I will add, that I really like Best Buy's return policy too. No questions asked. I went ahead and refreshed the HP system, so it took any trace of me off of it and set it back to how it came from the factory. Best Buy even let us re-use the $30 coupon we'd used on the first one. So the Lenovo - which had been $599 when we bought the first one - was now on sale for $559; plus the $30 coupon then brought it down to just $529. I miss the monitor size, but it more than makes up for it with the speed.
