Summary: I'm very disappointed with this HP Envy Touch laptop. After 3 months, I am constantly being frustrated by the key pad that seems to be way too sensitive, along with the terrible functionality of the touch screen and WIN 8. It never seems to fail that when you want to access the edge functionality with the mouse, it does not appear, however, when you don't want to access any of the edge functionality, it interferes with what you are trying to accomplish.
Summary: Most horrible piece of HP equipment i have every purchased. HP really outdid themselves with turning a computer into a faulty contraption of a computer. The lights on the keyboard will eventually malfunction, the camera will stop working, the hardware or software will either start getting really slow and try updating itself every 2 days.
Summary: I have 2 HP computers. My ENVY 17 Notebook has two SSD drives and is a wonderful reliable workhorse. HP tech support is the best in the biz. HOWEVER, The ENVY 14 Ultrabook has a major problem. The touch pad is inconsistent, unresponsive, and absolutely impossible to use; according to HP tech support, the problem is unfixable. The only way I've been able to use the 14 is by installing an exterior Logitech mouse and keyboard, which defeats the purpose of a laptop.
Summary: I bought this for my daughter to use for school. I ASSUMED that there would be some program installed on it so she could create documents. Not true. I've been on the phone with HP and the only solution is to buy Office 2010 so I can get word and excel and download online for an additional $200, since there is no disc drive either. Would have purchased differently for sure. Now, I'm in it for $750 instead of $550.
Summary: I would NOT recommend this computer. My husband has been using it for 8 months. It started having problems with "freezing" early on. HP failed to fix it. The keyboard lights up but who cares if the computer is junk.
Summary: Though I am not sure whether Ultrabook 4 or sleekbook is better, I think the verson I bought should be the former, but the Fn+Esc keyboard command pops up a window showing this computer being 'HP - ENVY Touch-Screen Sleekbook 14" Laptop'. What is wrong going on? ***Further added comment*** About several day before, I commented "so far not bad" on this product. But now, I'm sad to say that I have to change my idea.
Summary: I have had this machine for 20 minutes and I'll tell you what to expect. They keys are large and designed for children, windows 8 is terrible, the machine is burning a hole through my legs as I type - it's REALLY hot!!!! If you have a wireless mouse, forget about using it. The usb ports are too small for my them. There are two lights on the keyboard which are always on, so if you like to be distracted, get this machine. The screen is NOT touchscreen AT ALL.
Summary: Mysteriously 2 small black hot spots appeared on my screen after a little more than a month of use. They grow larger the longer the computer is left on and are almost hot enough to burn skin. Please don't buy this product. It might work well for a while, then it'll break and you'll have to deal waste your valuable time dealing with customer support, packing it up, and going to the post office.
