Used? Sleekbook and Poor PR - charging the customer to return a red herring.

Marcia, Amazon
4 September 2014
  • 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!

They even blew off soldiers in action in Iraq it appears from all the information I have gleaned from people who invested in HP

  • Summary: If you need anything in computers go find a different company. HP does not back up their product and will not help you once your warranty expires. They even blew off soldiers in action in Iraq it appears from all the information I have gleaned from people who invested in HP electronics that none of them were satisfied with the product. Their products last about 2 years and then expect to buy new ones quality is not a Mark of an HP.. Olh you can get help if you reenlist.

Camden Ogletree, Amazon

  • Summary: The left hinges will break within the first 6 months. At first I thought I broke it. But then I got it fixed and it happened again in the same amount of time.This would have a been a great laptop rivaling Macbooks but this serious design flaw cannot be overlooked. I REPEAT DO NOT BUY THIS LAPTOP! DO NOT BUY THIS LAPTOP!

Reviews about hinges are true. Look it up

K. Heckemueller, Amazon
4 March 2014
  • Summary: Look up reviews on this laptop. My wife and i bought it and within the first year the left hinge broke. Luckily hp replaced it for free. Unfortunately, the same exact thing happened again within four months! Now it's out of warranty. Don't buy this laptop.

Design flaw - hinges brea, repaired, and break again

ron9999, Amazon
15 February 2014
  • Summary: The hinges are "glued" to the lid. So will at some point break away. Don't buy it. If you do and they break, use sale of goods act to request a replacement, but a different model.

Probably a fine laptop, but I got a total lemon

Amazon Customer "Lolalipstick", Amazon
29 January 2014
  • Summary: It's a nice enough laptop, to be honest, if I didn't have the same problem over and over. I bought the Sleekbook in September 2013. The screen has separated from the keyboard twice in less than 18 months. It's still functional: I just can't actually close or open it or take it anywhere, which kind of defeats the purpose of having a laptop (especially since I am a writer). It first broke in August 2013, so it was still under warranty.

Do not buy it or any other Envy

ivb, Amazon
31 December 2013
  • Summary: The hinge problem is extremely common, just check the forums. Both of hinges on mine broke after little more than a year of gentle use. Prior to that, there were keyboard issues(just like the other reviewer wrote, the space bar had to be pressed just so for it to register, very inconvenient when trying to type fast)and the notebook badly overheated as well. This is an incredibly attractive notebook, but is just not designed well. HP was no help at all.

Shocking build quality

30 December 2013
  • Summary: After 5 months the right hinge broke, had the issue fixed by under warranty and now only four months later the same hinge has broken. What an absolute joke! I wont be buying a HP again.

Worst Laptop I've ever Owned

Kberkel, Amazon
22 December 2013
  • Summary: Stay away from HP. I bought this 6 months ago. It sat on a desk, and had the easiest life of any laptop. One of the hinges snapped off today and HP wants $180 to fix it. Would you buy a car when its doors would fall off after putting 5k miles on the car? Initially the hinge creaked for about 2 days. Then it seized and the screen was being wripped apart. Then it finally snapped off. Here's a picture. [...] ----- I wanted to add to the review for how bad this laptop is.
