Great configuration, but yellows are not presented properly on the screen!
16 September 2014
Summary: Laptop is good looking, very stylish, light and perfect size for all of my needs, however - yellows are not presented properly. I knew this was a problem for the HP QHD+ screens before ordering the laptop but decided that it's not going to bother me as much. After using it for few days, I wish I got another brand laptop with the same screen resolution...
Summary: I have spent months looking for a new laptop and was excited to see something with these specs at such a great price. Unfortunately, I had it repackaged up and dropped off at UPS within a few hours. Here is my brief overview: PROS: - Almost "3K" screen resolution - Excellent keyboard functionally (personal preference of course, but one of favorite keyboards that I've used) - It was already upgraded to 8.1 even though it was listed as having 8.0 - SSD hard drive boost in...
Summary: Love my new laptop except, Struggled for hours to get the w-fi to work on home network. Through many message boards seems like the HP laptops have had trouble with Linksys routers. Wi-Fi would work when 5 feet from router, then drop once further away. Checked at SBUX, my office, and my phones shared wifi network. All good. Gave up and purchased add on usb wi-fi device, now it works great. T-Mobile 4G included is awesome...just enough data to use when wi-fi not available.
Summary: The HP TouchSmart Envy 14t-k100 is a great product. The touch screen is almost necessary with Windows 8, as it seems to have been designed or one. The only down side is that Windows 8 takes a little getting used to. If you have several windows open, it seems they switch out on their own, and it is not intuitive on how to get back the one you want. I imagine after a while you get used to the interface.
Summary: The laptop looks gr8 aesthetically. And feels gr8 in your hands. Good specs for the $. But..... My setup consists of connecting this laptop to an external monitor (max 1080p) via HDMI, external keyboard, mouse, speakers & ethernet cable. - The 128GB is on paper. You get 120GB of which dear Microsoft takes about 30% or so. Add another few more GB (don't remember the exact amount since I deleted it) you are left with usable of approx 70GB or so.
Summary: Pros: Super-fast processing Great graphics Touch screen is great - once you get used to it Cons: Speakers are surprisingly quiet (especially for them being Beats Audio) Weak Wi-Fi range- won't pick up a signal from a room away (tried several routers to see if that was the problem)
