Summary: I cannot chose my laptop. I get an HP from my employer every time (i.e. every 12 months or so). Each one seems to be worse than the previous one if that's possible. No battery life. Weird hardware issues. Mysterious crashes that can't be replicated. Simple things like the rubber feet that fall off after one week of use. Cracked hinges and cases. And the one common thing across their entire line of laptops for the past decade: the latch breaks or fails somehow.
Summary: Nice unit except the touch screen does not work near the edges - impossible to start and stop programs or min/max windows. HP has not been able to help me with the issue after a month and a half. If you are not looking for a touch screen this unit should work OK for you.
