Excerpt: Bought this to get a smaller, lighter and reasonably fast PC. The setup was easy. It came with Windows 8.1 loaded. There was, as always, with a new computer some updating necessary. The HP 14 has performed as expected to date. There are no negatives at this point.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to Use, Quality Construction
Excerpt: After returning the first one I bought to staples, because it had a burned out pixel on the screen, this notebook laptop is work fairly well. I am still getting use to the new Windows 8 system but, so far so good. I would recommend a wireless mouse as I have trouble using then pad on the key board. One draw back is that it only has 3 USB ports. But the reason I bought it was it had most of what I was looking for.
Excerpt: hp pavilion is a nice small lightweight computer. I do not use the touch screen but it is a nice feature. HP pavilion is a good PC. However, windows8 is not user friendly whatsoever. I do not like the start page with all those apps that I already delete because I do not use them. all the new features with uninteresting apps in windows8 looks like a cheap copy of apple store. Other than that, the hp computer itself is ok.
Excerpt: HP Pavilion 14" Touch Screen Laptop that I recently bought at Staples was surprisingly easy to learn to use. I decided that I would just try and figure it out on my own, as I'd had a short demonstration of how windows 8 worked several months before, when I was browsing the computer department at a different retailer. The salesman that sold me the computer showed me a few tricks to get to the classic screen as well.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to Use, Efficient, Quality Construction, Reliable
Excerpt: I liked the smaller laptop to haul around...not wanting a tablet and touch screen fingerprints...this lets me bypass with a mouse. It is a very sensitive keyboard....can accidentally touch something and delete or bounce off elsewhere...which can be frustrating. Size of font seems to zoon in and out on a whisper...is that the computer or the Windows 8.1??? This one is slimmer and lighter than the earlier Pavilion I had this size. Fast operating system.
