Summary: My husband bought me this computer for a present and it is terrible. He also bought the extended warranty which was also a waste. Spent hours on the phone with the HP help desk but not able to help so after much arguing they agreed to send someone out.
A Little Overrated/Overpriced...But I Still Like Mine

Summary: When I first hooked it up, I was really impressed. For one, the huge screen is great...easier on my eyes. I also thought there was some really neat software included, although I'd like to have seen PhotoShop included.
Summary: I was really surprised to see all not so great reviews. I really love this computer. I have no complaints. I can understand the frustration though because sometimes updates have been tricky, but i'm pretty good with computers and everything is fine.
Summary: Flatlined for no reason in 5 months. As with many HP laptops I have had to fix both the hard drive and wireless died at the same time. Just cheaply built and overpriced like anything garbage HP/Dell/Compaq/ACER sells.
Not a screamer, some limitations... but a usable all-in-one

Summary: I am used to running 6 monitors (stock trader), so despite the large screen it seems cramped. The biggest negative is that there is NO video output (not VGA, not DVI, not anything). If adding a second monitor is something you need to do, go elsewhere.
Summary: I bought this computer to have as a living room family computer. The touch screen capability and sleep look made me think it would be a great media server as well since everyone could run their iTunes libraries from it as well as feed movies to the TV and record with the TV tuner.
Summary: had this for a week. i then realised i had a thousand dollar desktop , with a thousand dollar screen. Thats fine BUT, what if and when screen goes wrong outside warranty. You then need a whole new package or you cannot find a compatible screen a few years down the line. I took it back.
Summary: What sold this product for me was the touch function. After a lot of research, I finally took the plunge and bought the one-in-all from HP. I nearly bought the 816, but decided not to because I don't use blue-rays.
