I have a 5 yr old hp pavilion dv 6000. The touchpad does overheat from time to time so I a use a usb mouse. The computer runs fast. No problems 'cept the time I dropped it and had to replace the screen, but I worry that its waiting till law school finals to fail.
I don't think hps are bad, I got a great deal at Costco for mine.
