Summary: HP does not stand behind their products. After contacting their customer service center (a call center outside the country) and being dissatisfied, they had a representative from their corporate office call me back. This representative admitted that the broken hinge on my laptop was a manufacturing default, but because my laptop was over the 1 year warranty, he said I would have to pay for parts and labor to fix it. The cost was quoted at $240.00.
Summary: If this review is just base on how this look new then I would give this product a five star. Due to lack of build quality and how slow this sleekbook is I have to give it a two star. After two month of regular used the front cover begin to break apart. within a week of use I relies how slow the amd A6 processor is.
Summary: I love this laptop, it came stock with Windows 8 and all of the drivers installed. Not many issues with this fine machine except for some major lockups, which was fixed with an OS refresh. This PC must be built very well because for the year that I have had it friends have dropped it quite a bit and it has survived all of the gravity induced altercations. Because of the shock from the multiple drops I did replace the hard drive with a SSD, which was a very simple switch.
Used? Sleekbook and Poor PR - charging the customer to return a red herring.

Summary: I received my HP Sleekbook to discover it was far from "sleek". Not only was this machine heavy, it looked used and was defective. First, the box looked faded and was duct taped closed. Not one, 6 x 4 inch strip.....I mean taped with 4 feet of tape. I immediately fired it up, hoping to design a syllabus for an up coming class I would be teaching,. To my dismay, the space bar worked 40-50% of the time!
Summary: Unlike all the negative reviews this laptop has received, I believe that this computer is amazing. Because I have had this laptop for two years, I think that I have enough experience with this laptop to be giving a review. When I bought this laptop, it was flawless. There was nothing more I could ask for, and it did everything it needed to. Whether it was gaming or surfing the web, it got the job done.
