Summary: I bought this for my mom who isn't very good with PCs. I figured a quad core would be a good standard to begin with. It comes with all the normal connections one needs for today's use. I found the touch screen itself very useful to move around the PC while setting it up. 15.6" screen size is perfect for a laptop, any larger and the PC becomes less portable. It turns out she loves it because she doesn't need to use a mouse.
Summary: I bought this for a gift.It arrived in a nondescript Amazon cardboard box. Got a great Lightning Deal price. Looks and acts like a computer that costs double. People can't believe it has a touchscreen. I hear the gifted one grumbling like crazy about incomprehensible Windows 8. Hopefully it will get easier with use. There is also grumbling about the mouse cursor traveling up to the upper left corner of the screen and getting "stuck" there.
Summary: i really like this laptop the only drawback is it is lacking a disk drive. not the best battery life but good keyboard, durable, well made love the touchscreen and it runs programs flawlessly.
Summary: So far the computer is working great. Is a little heavy than I though. This computer is a gift (Wife) so I haven't got the time to actually tested very good so the rate can change at any moment. I got a code for Windows, is a 25$ for their apps store. The AMD Radeon HD 8400 graphics is plenty for her. Pros: Windows load fast. We have to considered that is a new Windows with not that many programs installed. Further testing is needed.

Summary: I bought this as a Christmas gift for my son. So I can not comment on the computer it's self as I haven't given it to him. But I felt I should warn anyone looking to give it as a gift that is does not show up in a amazon box. It shows up in a box that has HP all over it. Imagine my disappointment that my son had been the one to discover this package delivered. I am so bummed that my surprise has been ruined.
Summary: I bought this for my parents and was initially apprehensive about the new windows 8 and touch screen but it was very easy to figure out and the touch screen was responsive. Do not have any battery or heating problems. AMD processor works great. I probably paid a little higher than usual .
Summary: Good model for everyday computing. Easily runs programs commonly used in our home. Touch screen is very handy to move through websites and programs. I recommend this to anyone looking for a laptop for the family.
