Summary: I've had this laptop for 2 years. There have been no problems. It is quite fast. It upgraded OK to Windows 8.1, an improvement over Windows 8 (though I'm waiting with hope for Windows 10). The battery life is good, Wi-Fi connectivity is good.

Summary: I've been using this laptop 60 hours/wk for over 2 years and absolutely love it. Granted, most of my work is done with a external kb, mouse and monitor. It's tiny and light and I throw it my messenger bag most nights because I can. It's taken a beating but has been absolutely flawless.
Summary: This HP Envy puts touch into a standard ultrabook, a welcome change that won't force users too far outside of their comfort-zone. Pros: + Comes with Windows 8. + Intel Core i5-3317U processor. + Beats Audio. Cons: - Hinges too wobbly for touch.
Worked beautifully at first, but then major keyboard and mouse problems started cropping up

Summary: The first year with this laptop went really smoothly 2012 - 2013). The laptop was fast at booting up - worked like a true ultrabook - ran programs quickly, beautiful audio, great at multitasking and it has features that are just great including backlit keyboard and more.
Summary: Avoid this computer at all costs!!! It has been a hunk of garbage since I got it! I got it for college May 2013 and have had it in the shop 3 times already. It is a very unreliable computer and the touchscreen is annoying and files things when you don't want it to. I wish i bought a mac.
Summary: I am loving my HP Envy Ultrabook 1030. It's light weight and very easy to transport. The picture and clarity is brilliant, and I am enjoying the backlit keyboard, I can type in any type of lighting. I recommend everyone go pick them up one. They won't regret it.
