I bought an HP for my mom, opened the box, and hell froze over
« on: February 11, 2014, 01:24:04 PM »
So, I ordered a laptop for my mom's birthday. An HP. I took a bit of a gamble but it was the only way to go for Windows 7, a $500 price point, and a Haswell i3. (HP ProBook 450 G1)

Imagine my surprise when I opened the box and found AN ACTUAL F***ING WINDOWS REINSTALL DVD.

(It's a clean CD too- the driver/bundled software disc was separate.)

The lack of bloatware was also very good. No goddamn Norton to uninstall. No pile of other trialware.

Also, it had build quality.  WTF?

Did I take the blue pill by accident?

I have 5 hours of not decrapifying to enjoy now :)
