I have an older HP Pavilion that I just started going wireless with Its working great so far.
I like a wider screen and a 10 key on any laptop so anything I would like would be a bit wider then normal.
I had a Dell desktop before this and never had any problems with it either.
I'm sure we will be due for a new one in the next year or so, I believe this one is about 4-5 years old. I wouldn't hesitate to get another Hewlit Packard. Just wish I could take my Windows XP with me
