My Windows 10 laptop is 2 years old, and my husband has a Windows 8. His one doesn’t hold the battery life, so he was going to get a new laptop. However, as I use mine for hours a day, we decided I would get the HP Notebook Laptop 15.6 HD Vibrant Display.
I really don’t like getting new ones, as I have so much to transfer from one to another. I started a week ago, and a day later it wouldn’t work. I found the HP number, phoned them, and was number 50 in line. I finally spoke to a guy, and he said I could return it, or do a factory reset. As I had information in the laptop there was no way I was sending it back, so after 3 and a half hours, I had to start afresh.
I have so many sites, and try to have different passwords for each one. On the other laptop they automatically logged me in, so couldn’t remember all my passwords. We are told not to write them down, so I have had a week of adding new ones. That’s why I haven’t been on that much.
We have used it to stream on BritBox, and Hulu, and the picture is great, as well as the sound. We also Skyped Len’s family, and the picture our side was much better than usual. I haven’t been able to Skype my family, but that could be an Internet problem over in England.
I like that I have Cortana, she understands my English accent. Everything else is the same as my 2 year old one, so am fairly happy with it.
Being 70, it takes me longer to pick up new technical stuff, but I will get some of it, and that is good enough for me.
This laptop was on sale, down from $399 to $269, which I thought was very reasonable. If you want technical specs, etc., just click on the Amazon link below.
