Summary: This is a very nice laptop and I loved the extras that HP adds to it. The fingerprint swipe worked great too and I'll miss it. I returned this laptop and I'll tell you why. I don't use an external mouse with my laptops and I found the touch pad difficult to use and many times unresponsive. It was just quicker to use the touch screen in many cases. So I decided to send this back and get a Lenova Yoga 2.
Summary: Its an excellent laptop! Just got it today... Only thing I have a problem with is it's annoying bumpy touchpad. I mean it's smooth, but why does HP feel the need to add texture to their touchpads? Anyways, anything else is the funnest and coolest features I've ever seen. And it's speakers are just wow o_O. My last laptop, had to be on volume 100 just to barely hear it, and it wasn't even a year old.
Summary: The touch screen works flawlessly. I like the speed, the sound is marginal but the "beats system always is low quality. I use an external USB speaker and it is fine however a bit bulky when you travel. Besides the sound, it's a nice system.
Excerpt: Jerusalem, Oct. 7th 2013 Dear Ms., Sir, My daughter bought a personal computer for me (HP ENVY TouchSmart 15-j050us Quad Edition Notebook PC) through your Internet site in August, 2013. The computer is very impressive, but I am not completely satisfied with the purchase because of two main reasons: 1. The opening of the computer screen is limited. I canâ€™t open it completely.
