Summary: I have purchased this hp laptop almost a year ago for my birthday, since I was tired of using my phone for everything. At first, I thought it was a very good laptop. It was fast, the touchscreen worked well and I had no problem with it. But a couple of months later, I realized..why is this laptop worth 800 dollars?!
Summary: Slow right out of the box! I only use it for web browsing. Freezes up constantly, windows 8 is a nightmare. There's not even anything saved on the computer, it's all on an external drive, and I've had it checked for viruses and there aren't any. Maybe mine was just a piece of junk, but I would still never recommend this to anyone considering I spent $400 on it!
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).
