Summary: this laptop is excellent. It was delivered very quickly and even faster than the manufacturer could provide; and with much less hassle also. probably the last lap top I ever buy - I am at least hoping so. Much more memory and power than I was expecting and I will be discovering things about it for several more months. Way too many apps but can hide them so they are not as annoying. I will truly enjoy this laptop for many years to come. Mark H.
Summary: I spent many hours trying to get the laptop to go on the internet via our wifi signal. After a week of downloading updates with a ethernet cable and a lot of troubleshooting, we were finally able to make it work. Very satisfactory machine, but be warned that it will need some updates when you unpack it, so have an ethernet cable handy.
Summary: the hardware is top of the line but windows 8 is a joke I thought it couldn't be as bad as people say but it is worse HP needs to put out an android version of this laptop. will be the last Microsoft product I will ever buy all my friends say the same we just don't know if the next will be Linux or android I needed a laptop not a want to be Xbox. people don't have money to through away on Microsoft mistakes anymore.
Summary: The price was good. I really love the look of it! The screen size is large and easy to see everything it's wonderful! I also find the full size key board alot of help when typing! I have gotten many compliments on it. I did have a little bit of a hard time with windows 8. I did not feel this version of windows was very user friendly. I would highly recommend this laptop to friends and family. I love it!
Summary: The machine is great . . . fast-fast-fast, sleak, comfortable to use, well-designed . . . great hardware. (Too much bloatware; but, such are the times.) However, it is paired with Windows 8 which is not user friendly on a laptop. On a laptop it is a clunky GUI that provides no benefits versus Win 7 on a laptop.
Summary: This is third HP laptop that I have owned and they just keep getting bigger and better. This high end machine is everything they say it is and more. Has plenty of inputs and out puts, great sound and even a finger print reader to memorize your finger print and us it as your login and password. Now how smart is that?! I upgraded to Windows 8.1 and it runs without a hitch. If you live in the apps world, then you should have no problem with this operating system.
Summary: Had a real problem staying connected to my wireless network. It dropped the connection 9 or 10 times a day. Downloaded Windows 8.1 and had to get a new driver for the network card. Since then, the connection is much more stable. Lose the connection maybe once every two days or so. Good looking computer, runs cool, battery seems good. NOT a fan of Windows 8.
