Summary: I have really enjoyed this new laptop so far! I love the touch screen and like windows 8.1 now that I have gotten used to it. The speakers are excellent! The only think I can complain about would be that the fan runs kind of loud when more powerful things such as watching videos. Good laptop, can't even tell that it is refurbished.
Summary: I have been using this laptop for about a year. I am a full time student so it gets a lot of use. This one is running Windows 8 not 8.1. After I had this for 6 months I upgraded the memory to 12 Gigs, 4 Gigs is just not enough for Windows 8. The 4 gigs work but when you really are using it buy running several programs, such as power point, word, and surfing for information it got pretty slow. With 12 Gigs that went away.

Summary: I am still getting to know the laptop specificially Windows 8 but I love the speed of the processor and I will never own another laptop that does NOT have a backlit keyboard. Super handy for working in all kinds of places.
Good machine overall, had to send back for a repair at first.

Summary: Solid performance, great stats, very responsive touch screen, easy setup, really a great deal, except mine came with a backlight bleed/lines of screen issue that rendered the screen unviewable. HP stood behind this 100% and within 10 days I had the working computer in hand. Pros: Slim, light, durable (in a house with 2 small children, it has taken some abuse in the last month), Dedicated video - handles demanding tasks better than I expected (will not run the latest...
... I honestly do genuinely find it to be a great computer. It's fast

Summary: I give this computer four stars because I honestly do genuinely find it to be a great computer. It's fast, simple, beautiful graphics, amazing speakers, etc. The only reason it doesn't get five stars is the Windows Apps. They do not work. I guess I should say, the apps worked for about a week and then never again. The good thing is, I can just pretend they don't exist and use the good old internet for things like Netflix - and download programs like Skype.
