I love my HP TX1410 Notebook. It is fast and great for the price. good for starters. The battery life isn't that good but I am OK with it. As it is dual core, the CPU gets hot soon.It is light weight and has a 2GB memory and 250GB HDD. pretty much good features in my opinion. It has a finger print reader and mine never works which annoys me! but over all good product.I have used this in flight where there is limited space and it is not bad as it is small in size.. HP pre-loads it many unwanted software but still I would recommend this to any one. I have been using it for like 3 years. no complaints so far! You can't beat the price for features and specs.
