Overheats and causes your motherboard to fail anywhere from 5-16 months after purchase

Summary: I have had this laptop for about 14 months. It seems most people have been happy with their purchase initially, and I can say I was as well. For the price this laptop was great on performance... Little did I know the performance comes with a serious cost.
Summary: Bought this laptop in 2012 as a student laptop. I have one issue that unfortunately overshadows everything good about the laptop: THE SCREEN GIVES ME MIGRAINES. I can remember the day I was sitting down playing Empire Total War on this laptop when I started getting this very bad headache.
Summary: This laptop was given to me as a gift from my parents. I have had nothing but troubles with this piece of crap. First of all this laptop has overheating problems. HP is aware of this problem as they issued a mass recall about 5 years ago, but obviously they still haven't fixed it.

Summary: Sorry, I would not recommend the vendor who sent me this model. It was a knockoff. The sound was tinny and text was not clear. Had other problems. Did not perform like an HP product. HP could not even help me and then told me they could not find the product code in their system.
Summary: WINDOWS 8 interface unworkable on this machine. AT some point after a few minutes of using the computer the mouse buttons stop working correctly -- work only within the LATEST window opened, and you can't switch windows. At ALL times new windows open BEHIND previously opened windows.
Excerpt: I purchased this computer 11/24/12 and it worked OK until mid May of 2013. It then started to just continually go to sleep while I was working on it. I sent it to HP for repair (so lost use of it for 10 days). I had to download all my file including Outlook.
Cons: Finger Print Scan Does No, Shuts Off On It's Own
Summary: Windows 8 is horrible; Dear Microsoft if I wanted and crappy appy based system I would have bought a tablet. If you are a real user you'll hate it. 5 Days and I so frustrated it is going back period. Horrible did I mention horrible? If I could give less stars I would.
