Summary: This is a great laptop with great features. I shopped two other brands from several stores and this was the best value. It wasn't the most expensive but what it has for what it cost is just what I was looking for!
Summary: I've had this laptop (Model 15t-k000 Quad Edition) less than a month - so far it runs well and looks like a sleek, well-made product. The backlit keyboard is nicely done and a pleasure to use. I bought this laptop configured with 8 GB RAM, hoping to install additional memory myself and avoid paying the exorbitant prices manufacturers typically charge.
Summary: I bought a very similar model from Costco at $699, i-7 processor, 1T memory. It's fairly quick on my home wifi. I bought and downloaded Windows Office Professional Plus 2013, took only about 10-15 minutes to download. I love the backlit keyboard. It also came preloaded with Windows 8.1, so I didn't have to fool with downloading it. Not too much bloatware.
Summary: Purchased for my son who is an Engineering student at a large university. I was able to go to HP website and select the exact build and modifications we needed for him to be successful. Beautiful laptop inside and out. Huge capacity memory with all the extras! Touchscreen is just the right sensitivity and the laptop feels sturdy but not too heavy either.
