Summary: Not only is HP very helpful in directing you in the right direction for Windows 8.1 updating, but their Community is also very helpful! This laptop features AMD's APU not to be confused with a regular CPU. This Laptop is sporting a very nice built in fan, as well. The APU is clocked at 1.9, which can be pushed safely to AMD specifications for overclocking by way of their latest Catalyst Control Center with the built in AMD Overdrive option.
Summary: It is a solid computer, I am very happy with my purchase. This computer was definitely worth the money especially for the amount I paid for it. The only criticism I have is that it's not as fast as I expected it to be. I compared it to my older laptop and it's better than that one but not by much. I guess I underestimated my older laptop.
Summary: I like to be in control. I don't favor the touch screen. If you rest your wrist on the computer things happen you don't need to happen. The icons and clock pop up when the cursor is moved around the screen. Photos or documents that were uploaded previously to be viewed mysteriously reappear while you are working on the current screen. Several times I have lost connection to wi-fi but probably due to wi-fi rebooting.
Summary: Everything seems to work well except the wireless adapter. Had to return the first laptop because wireless would barely connect even when sitting next to the wireless router. Second unit only gets 3 bars but, seems to work OK. Nice display. Still don't like windows 8.
Summary: Did not come with touch screen or windows 8,A The operating system as listed. There were scratches on the display that made viewing a task that should have not been there even with a refurbished unit at this price.
Summary: This laptop is so amazing and really fast right out of the box. I can not get over the amazing sound quality that it has. My only BIG problem I have is that it is falling apart after having it for 3 months and taking very good care of it. The entire corner on the back left side chipped off and not I have to snap it shut several times a day. The colors are starting to not show up right *colors running together badly).
