Summary: At first, I loved this computer. It was blazing fast, it was sleek, and the touchscreen worked like a charm. It had all the ports I needed, including 3 USBs and an HDMI. My old HP laptop, which I had bought 6 years earlier was still running like a tank. I was singing HP's praises to anyone who would listen. Then the hardware problems started. First, there was a spot on the touchscreen that would click at random when I was nowhere near that place on the screen.
Summary: Totally underwhelmed. Page loads are very slow, and the mouse/keyboard controls respond very slowly. It actually works quite well as a touch-screen, but since the keyboard is there reaching across it to touch the screen feels very counter-intuitive. I was expecting better performance. I am returning this purchase.
Summary: Every time I try to do anything on this computer (which I've now owned for 6 weeks and cannot return), I somehow touch something wrong on the stupid mousepad and either end up on another screen or erase my work or find that the font size is changing or SOMETHING. I'm not able to do the work I need to do. I imagine the computer would be great if I could use it effectively. I've NEVER had this type of problem with any other machine.
Summary: I was excited to get the computer but after about 3 months I had to send it back because the screen blacked out, the charger port is ridiculous and if you blow on the power cord it dislodges and stops charging, and the network adapter has very limited range and after the update to Windows 8.1 it disconnected every 5 minutes (like a literal 5 minutes).
Summary: Initial review (See updates) This will be my third laptop in 5 years... not that i'm even that rough on them. My Dell laptop went through 5 hard drives in three years and then my Asus worked great but it literally fell apart on me in the second year. I know i needed to get out of the $300-$400 price range. I took a lot of time and read a lot of reviews and ended up purchasing this laptop. I've only had it for a month, but here are my initial thoughts.
Summary: this thing is heavy I bought it because it seemed as a ultrabook but not in weight and bad screen color brightness also battery does not last more than an a hour. What could be worst on a super unportable computer.
Summary: Hi, so today my daughter received her laptop, in which she was very excited to open and use, now imagine what a great disappointment it was for her to open the supposedly “brand new” laptop only to find a dent in the region of the speakers. Overall the laptop is beautiful and works, but IT SHOULD NOT HAVE A DENT IN IT. Next time I hope that they do a quality control check and make sure that the laptop is in new condition as it should’ve been.
