Summary: Very nice laptop and good touchscreen. I hooked this up to a Plugable 3.0 docking station and hooked two 25" monitors to it, so the laptop stays closed and off to the side. Those rare times when I take it remotely it works very well.
Summary: Even with installing Classic Shell and using Synaptic configuration to get rid of 'Charms Bar' i didn't get it all the way to how i like it. I won't speak to the intensity of my Operating system dislike'. I'm glad for Costco's 90 day return policy.
Pros: machine so far wonderful awesome trackpad and touch to the keyboard the screen richness depth and color wow good sound system large area to rest your hands on 70 second on 1st boot and 12 seconds onward
Cons: hate window 8.1 tricky getting rid of stuff they want to install
Summary: Having had many HP computers over the years, I have never had any problems with function or dependability. This laptop is no exception. Everything has been excellent- from performance to the brilliant HD display. I wanted Windows 7, and this laptop was a true find! Highly recommended!
Love the laptop but the fingerprint scanner won't work without causing problems.

Summary: So fer so good - good extra is the touchscreen, but I'm using a mouse to avoid too much culture shock from Windows 7. Windows 8.1 will take some getting used to, but I'll figure it out. The i7 processor and the TB hard drive will serve me well. Its fast and will hold a ton of junk.
