Slow, but possibly a better option than a Chromebook

Summary: HP products are normally great - I love my all-in-one HP Omni with i3 processor, but the AMD E series processor is just too slow to do anything but the most basic web surfing. If that's all you need (reading email, typing up an occasional Word or Google document, etc.) then this is a cheap, decent option, plus you you can run standard Windows applications unlike a Chromebook or other low cost laptops.
Summary: The computer itself is fantastic. HP on the other hand is a nightmare. Since its an older computer, made in 2012, it takes a massive amount of updates to get it current. The computer was running just fine till the automatic updates started. It just kept disconnecting itself from the internet. Turns out it installed a Wi-Fi driver wrong. Got online with tech support & they said the update pack that was trying to install itself is wrong for this computer. Gee thanks HP.
Summary: I expected Win 8 more easy...opposite it is a real nightmare to operate in the confusion of the start up. Amazon doesn't specify in easily to read if the model has or not the Bluetooth, so I am obliged now to buy a BT separated.
Liked this until I found out what a pain it is to use, plus most of my software needed to be updated, and some had none.

Summary: update: I absolutely HATE Windows 8!! Liked this until I found out what a pain it is to use, plus most of my software needed to be updated, and some had none. In my opinion, I would rather use Windows 3.5!!
