>>52532630 I have a HP Stream 7. Display is really good, which is surprising for the price, touch screen is good, audio sounds fine, but there's a hardware problem most of them have where there might be a buzzing sound (which gets mostly fixed by a BIOS update).
There is a catch though. Keeping audio unmuted will drain your battery in standby, and it will still drain a decent amount even in use while unmuted. Also, the biggest issue is that you will run out of battery in 4 hours with 25% brightness (2 hours if you're using something like Chrome instead of Edge/IE).
I wasn't really happy with the battery life, as I want a tablet to last more than 4, maybe 5 hours. I got a Surface 2 (the RT version) about 3 weeks after I got the Stream 7 and the battery life is good. I'm satisfied with it.
>>52525945 Leo and that one slut killed off WebOS. Consumer grade laptops are actually getting good at the high end, while low/mid range are usable compared to overheating crap from years ago. Business grade hardware still same as usual.
>>52533846 >The trackpad just died about a year ago (not much of a problem, since I never used it) and it likes to heat up (idles at about 50-60c)
>but other than that, it's fine
LOL hp's business models are as shit as their consumer models. I had an 6v6000 that I bought in 2007 and the fucking thing died 1.5 years later. My experience with it was so bad that I went with a used chinkpad and it's been butter ever since. The only US computer company I would buy at this point is dell.
>>52533992 Two minor issues for me (The laptop is baisically a "desktop replacement" for me, so I've always got a mouse) As for the heat, they did a good job diverting it away from the handrest. It's at ~50c right now and it feels cold to the touch
Worked in one of their service desk. They made everyone in that sector including managers teamleaders all the way to the top ALL contractors. So many people lost great benefits, pay went down like crazy, kicker is direct employees were making less per hour than contractors because of benefits still got the same pay, its 12.50 by the way. I got the fuck outta there fast as I could. They literally told us the day it happened. Meanwhile meg Whitman got a huge bonus raise mere months earlier.
>>52534760 >mouse over picture >look at computer and screen >notice mouse pointer in picture that's not even on the monitor screen >move my mouse to try and move it >mouse moves out from over the picture, picture disappears
I will do my absolute best to stay away from all their products.
>gf's laptop is slow >figure a HDD to SSD swap will be the best bang for the buck upgrade for now >do a fresh windows install too , things are going great >time to install/update all the drivers >browse HP's shitty site for drivers >a few drivers don't work strange, and one device is just 'unkown' >ok lets contact support, the warranty ended but maybe I can email them a question.
NOPE. HP throws you into the community forums as soon as its out of warranty. You've got a question ? better have your wallet ready to pay up to ask them.
>never did get bluetooth to work properly despite the hardware reporting no errors >found a working driver for the 'unknown' hardware on lenovo's support site fuck you HP.
My story doesn't revolve around some shitty laptop, but entirely how shitty HP's site is and how shitty their support is, fuck them hard.
>>52535823 Isn't the enterprise side even more Jewish about that? I remember hearing one anon report that stuff like BIOS updates and the like for servers are behind a paywall, and they won't let you download them without a support contract.
>>52535886 that I can understand, it all depends on your agreement with them.
>negotiate new hardware >go with the lowest upfront cost >gotta pay to access basic updates >operating costs now eat into your realized savings going with the cheapest vendor rinse and repeat every time you get new shit
Business can be ass backwards, many of them care only about initial costs and don't look down the road. The place I work has refrigeration, we use these old ass refurbished fridges from who knows when, our compressor is also old as fuck too. its a huge clusterfuck of what looks like the cheapest/least efficient shit they could put together.
Now because shit is so cheap and old, we spend 100K+ per year to call people in to fix/maintain it all the time. Not to mention the lost sales/product when they do break.
I spoke to the reefer dudes before, they would *never* design is this way, but hey, its what the client wanted, and now the client pays them to be there every other week fixing/checking shit.
