Summary: I got a different computer than described. The computer looked nice and is the same as shown in the picture. But it doesn't have 8 GB it has 4GB. And it doesn't have 3.4 GHz it has 2.5 GHz. And it's not set up to use.
Summary: The positives: Lightning fast, huge bright screen, Almost 1TB of SSD storage and a built in back up HDD for onboard full backups. Tech specs like these will run you about 1000 dollars more in a high end laptop (specifically the SSD/HDD config). The negatives: The touchpad is a horror show.... no clear buttons to click, difficult to understand where to tap and how hard to hit it. Does anyone do usability testing at HP, or are they just trying to make it look sleek?
Summary: The USB ports, speaker input, etc., are all toward the front of the computer. The cables get in the way when I'm trying to use the mouse All these should be toward or on the back. Cannot find a way to turn off the touchpad. Sometimes causes unwanted cursor movement.
Summary: First off I wanted to stick with Win 7 because I do not want to go thru a new OS learning process right now. My biggest complaint is this "Control Zone" pad located slightly to the left of center of the extended keyboard/num pad but centered to the qwerty keyboard. It is also the size of an iPhone, about 2.5" by 5.5". That's a lot of real estate.
Summary: Surprised at how slow it runs. It's a Win7 Pro OS on a laptop with an i7 processor and 12GB of RAM, but it is noticeably slower than my Win8.1 laptop with an i5 processor and 8GB of RAM. I'm teetering on the edge of returning it.
Summary: I really like the features on this machine but issues with Bluetooth and fingerprint reader software are frustrating. Do your research. Otherwise, this unit has just about everything one might want in a laptop/desktop replacement.
