Summary: This laptop is very slow and sluggish. I have used this laptop for a little over a year and I only use it for simple things such as checking my email and doing basic college applications such as Microsoft Word and PowerPoint.
Summary: If you get this one, I would recommend purchasing the extended Warranty during checkout.
Pros: good price for specs, nice appearance, touchscreen definitely improved the windows 8 experience
Cons: seemed a bit flimsy but I just put that up to it being a newer laptop and keeping things light. Performance was very poor compared to what I expected from the specs. From shortly after I got the laptop, any time it would shut down it would take a long time before actually shutting down and report...
Buyer Beware, Skip the refurbished they do not stand behind them.
Andrew G., Newegg
13 September 2015
Summary: Skip the refurbished they do not stand behind them. I understand the concept of refurbished as in it had an issue and then you fix that issue and resell it, clearly the issue was not fixed. 120 days a year OK i can see that but less than one quarter is ridiculous.
Pros: Skip the refurbished they do not stand behind them. While it was working it was a file little laptop, however that ended 9/13/2015 almost exactly 5/10/15 or lets say 120 days out of warranty,
Cons: Skip the refurbished they do not stand behind them. in 120 days the hard drive failed.of course its exactly out of warranty. I have gotten refurbished from newegg before with no issue, however after this their is no way i would recommend to anyone to get a newegg refurbished machines.
GETS VERY HOT ALSMOST IMMEDIATELY, NO BATTERY LIFE
Don Schatzel, Amazon
29 August 2015
Summary: This computer battery life is terrible. Even when new. Lasts about 45 minutes. It also gets extremely hot. Something is wrong with the design and choice of microprocessor. And when it is not the performance suffers considerably. Don't know if they are still available but don't buy this computer.
Summary: Buy any other model of computer, even a different one from the same manufacturer. Try an older computer, try a newer one, trying anything, but don't try this one.
Pros: Perhaps that it's lightweight. Could be a decent door stop. Could be impressive to people who have not seen a laptop since 1999.
Cons: This thing is a horrible, slow piece of, what is technically, hardware. Fresh out of the box with Windows 8, trying to do anything like opening a program will result in a wait of 15 seconds to a full minute. There is lag even when trying to type. I assumed it was a bad installation of Windows, so...
Summary: The Laptop worked untll last month within problem, but now the screen Not Turn on, Now, i'm in other country in a bussines travel and within Laptop for Work. In this country (Venezuela) HP does not recognize warranty US products, only LA Products. I am very irritated and disappointed.
