Summary: it s not about the performance my review. it s about the battery life. battery life is a big deal when it comes about a laptop. how the hell you make a premium laptop that costs 1000$ and the battery life is under one h? since then i stood buying hp products.

Summary: I bought this laptop Jan. 7, 2012 as a gift for my wife, a Network Engineer. She initially was excited but that ended 15 minutes out of the box. The touchpad has never worked properly though she has been able to get by mostly by using an external mouse.

Summary: I have been an HP customer for over 15 years. I bought the HP ENVY 14 Spectre on November 8, 2012 after spending weeks doing my homework. I also bought an HP Phoenix Desktop. I have had problems with HP products in the past and the customer service is appalling to say the least.
