Like it, but....

Yolanda Thomas, Amazon

  • Summary: I should have gotten a touch screen. The leap motion is a crock and doesn't work worth crap. I was trying to avoid cleaning the screen but this was a BIG MISTAKE. Don't do it....

Great tech specs, poor fit and finish

White Oaks, Amazon

  • 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?

1 major problem

P4education, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I purchased this laptop to replace my home desktop computer. This is a very good laptop with one major problem. This laptop continues to drop my wifi connection. I would have given this a 5 star but this is a major flaw. If I can't stay connected to the internet via wifi why did I buy a laptop. I have to go to the network connection to disable and then enable the wifi in order to get it to work. I paid almost a $. and can't keep a constant connection to the internet.

Design not Optimum

StageMother, Hewlett-Packard

  • 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.

Maybe for some....

WesZ, Hewlett-Packard

  • 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.

Expected More From It

bmarkj, Hewlett-Packard
2 September 2014
  • 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.
