I bought two of these laptops, we do have one HP that my older daughter uses for school, a MAC that I have had forever and my younger daughter uses, so my husband and I thought we would buy some new ones for ourselves. One for my husband for his business and one for myself for school. Long story short, the biggest mistake of my life. Not even a year old and one of them needs a new hardrive and the other one has constant problems. So if you want to avoid any issues get a MAC or HP.
