HP laptop 457-144
I suspect this is the same laptop still being sold now under new item number 478-565 . I bought last Nov when they were on special. always buy 2 every few years. one for me and one for daughter. can’t write a review on the item number as it it sold out. i suspect it is same but they changed the item #. this one is incredibly slower. Both of us hate the laptop and windows 10. she needed a new one but is doing almost everything on her phone cause this is such a pain laptop. i keep flipping back and forth between this one and my old gateway. it was much faster. this was my own fault as i never gave it a thought that it would be slower than what we already had. i should have paid attention. i had purchased elsewhere outlook professional. was i ticked when an upgrade was made and it wiped out my outlook. had to reload. this also has a lot of software i don’t want to use will never use didn’t sign in for and i can’t seem to get rid of some of it. the airplane mode and network icons keep going away from bottom tray and i have to reset the network up to pick it back up at all. i am so done this hsn electronics.
This is a rather inexpensive laptop so it may not be able to handle a lot of things well.I have found that the 1.6 with Windows 10 is not all that great.Also this laptop has a 5400RPM drive which is slow to process info so if you do much of anything there will be a lot of lag.I try to get 7200RPM but it will add to the price.Another issue with these are updates can mess with what you already have such as your icon problem..Try updating the drivers and see if that will help.The lower priced laptops usually have lower functions reflecting the prices.
You are likely correct because it has the same specs and the same model numbers..
Thanks for your review . It is sneaky to sell “new” Laptop that performs like this. They should be selling the fastest laptop not outdated products even if they need to charge more. Makes me not trust.
Nothing Compares 2U is definitely on my Top 10 list! :heart:
