HP Pavilion dv3510nr is overall a good laptop. I’m very pleased with the purchase. I have a couple of laptops at home and I use a wireless router. For some reason the speed of this laptop is very slow when connecting to that router, while my other laptops do just fine. I took it to the office and connected to the wireless network there and it ran like a leopard. I also tried it out at a friend’s house as well and it ran like the same leopard in my office. Since I can’t figure out why n it does not like the router I got at home, I decided to change a router. Then, voila, I had everything running great ever after. Additionally, I like having the backlit keyboard especially when in poor lit places. Finger print reader is cool to as it can associate passwords with my finger print. What’s more, it boasts a decent battery life!
However, the touch pad is a little bit too sensitive so when I am typing it is easy to brush against it with my palm and can be a bit frustrating. But there is a button on the top of the pad that you can press to disable the touch pad while you are typing important documents. Keyboard is a bit smooth so it is kind of weird at first to touch, felt like my fingers were sliding around, but it was really easy to adjust to. And one more tip, this is not one for Windows XP lovers, because it’s built for VISTA.
