Nice laptop from HP. A good purchase @ $800-900. Doesnt heat much. Gets nicely converted to HDMI port to my 40" tv. Beats audio is good for laptops but not the best. Buy if looking for 14" sleek ,stylish laptop. Caution: NO DVD Drive in it.

Great machine at a Great Price but be aware when you purchase refurbished ítems they might come with defects. In this case the "C" key was a little stuck but fortunately I was able to repair it at a minimum cost.
