Not to go into the whole Apple - bad debate, but watch some Louis Rossman vids on macbooks - they are not as premium as people think they are.
From my 12 years experience of repairing laptops, hp def not my fav manufacture but by far not worst. this looks good vaule for money, ain't bad price for spec. n it's not one of there bad chassis either... 95% of hp machines aren't premium... this def isn't but what u expect for sub £500. The drivers were more than likly the wifi cards manufactures not hp's....however we did get alot with wifi problems...if still having the issue with it 9/10 a bios update for ur model, from hp web site, sorts it.
That maybe true, but I still wouldn't but one, their software support isn't great. If it was just one I could have said it was a one of. But I had the same on two separate laptops. You may have had a different experience, I'd say you were lucky unless HP have upped their game
Get what you pay for? With the exception of Apple and some other niche brands, HP is the most premium laptop manufacturer.
I would buy another HP laptop ever, I've had problems with drivers. WiFi stops working, then forced to buy an external WiFi dongle because HP drivers were rubbish. on another HP laptop the hinge gave way. Basically you get what you paid for..
