The HP elite arrived with no setup instructions. Apparently, although Windows 7 was installed, the product key had to be updated. Customer service was helpful after contacting them but this should have been done at the factory or at the very least came with heads up instructions. Internet explorer was out of date and had to be updated but when trying to update was told that Windows 7 needed to have SP1 installed first. I think the laptop should have been delivered with all this installed or with instructions that this needed to be completed before the computer would work properly. I have it all installed and so far it is working great. My only beef was the computer did not work properly when delivered and came with no instructions that update information was needed.
I like the computer and its compact size, but the screen stretches and compresses images, distorting them. I'm far from expert and my attempts to rectify the image problems have been fruitless. Perhaps someone more computer-savvy could fix this. Otherwise, I am pleased with the purchase and the price. The computer has dual controls, the touchpad and an IBM style joystick in the keyboard and right and left mouse controls below the space bar as well as at the bottom of the touchpad. If I can figure out how to correct the image distortion I'd up my rating to 5 stars from 4.
