not really 8 it deserved 8.5 but anyhow this lap impressed me with its resistance to rough uses.my friend who every semester plays cod mw3 with us for more than 2 semesters doesnt have a single lag case in the processor.common with most of the notebooks this lap resisted as well as performed for every high end games.
if you search quite well you may find this laptop under 50k in india.the features of this laptop include:
1.nice processor of i5(3210m) it is more than enough for any game or application uses( gpu may cause the bottleneck pbm).
2.ram of more than 6gb is enough for any games even the cod ghosts requires jst 6gigs while it offers 8gb.
3.coming to gpu in my system i saw initial lag with the 7670m but when you continue the game again and again the lag will be decreased and it crtain time even the high end games like bf4 runned smooth on my notebook.
4.standard 15.6' with 1366X768 is nice enough to watch hd movies from some distance any more closer you may spot the pixels due to large size of screen.
5.altec lansing speaker is one of the coolest features of hp laps.as it offers amazing sound quality compared with the latest models of dell and samsung as my friends appreciated how brilliantly it plays sound while other's laptop you may not be able to hear it quite well.
