Summary: I have been working on computers for 35+ years. I have always had a corporate laptop and personal ever since they became available to the public. Many of them including this one were hp. By far this is the cheapest & worse POS I have ever owned. Broken hinge, can not close it.
Left hinge broke - and part of the monitor frame cracked
10 June 2015
Summary: Stay away from HP. After a short usage the left hinge broke - and part of the monitor frame cracked. HP IS NOT GOING TO HELP YOU - THEY WILL TRY TO RIP YOU OFF. HP will charge you 200$ to get it fixed - their own poor design & flimsy materials!!!
Summary: I really wanted to love this laptop, but it was in fact NOT on fleek. That left hinge buckled its knees and hit a ferocious whip just like everyone said it would. tybg for reviews like this. Holla.
Summary: Pros: Nice sleek look. Cons: The annoying fan sound that will come after a few minutes, seriously it sounds like one of those OLD pc's. HINGES will break, just found out on HP forums that this is a very common defect, it will happen, and it will cost you good money to change. HP never again,
Summary: Ok, so I apparently did what the other reviewer Timothy K Ramey did in not reading all reviews first before my purchase. He posted is review Feb. 2013 and I bought my HP Envy in April 2013 and my experience regarding the laptop is identical.
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.

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...
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!
