the only good thing HP makes is printers, other than that their computers aren't really that good, I fixed so many of them, and eMachines that they are the worst of the worst in computers .

Since 2007 masses of people have been complaining their HP laptops were dying.
They didn't like Windows VISTA and were putting their Windows XP on those HP machines. It was Microsoft disabling HP's Hardware.
You can go on Ebay and buy perfectly good 17" laptop screens for $20.....because there's so many HP Laptops that had their motherboards disabled via the BIOS.
Any Computer made prior to 2003 is now worth it's weight in GOLD. The ones with a BIOS.....where the HARDWARE can't be disabled by someone remotely.
That's why HP is out of the PC business. MicroSoft. Look for PC's made before 2003.....stockpile them.
