Excerpt: Less than 30 days the cooling fan stopped working on it. Then it just stopped turning on... had to try to exchange it for a new one to see if it is just that one or just the making of this model?

Pros: Graphics Ok
Cons: A6 Slower Then I3, Flimsy Construction, Missing Vga Port, Poor battery life
Summary: the computer itself is fine, but dont use it much because of Windows 8. Why Why did u put that on. i am waiting till 8.1 comes so i can figure out the rest of it. and sooo it sits. the people at windows 8 should be fired.
Summary: I ordered this laptop thinking it was good value for money but it does not have the dual graphics cards that it claims to have. The version I received had a larger hard drive but that was all. Please be aware if you are buying this laptop that it looks similar but isn't. I ordered a replacement that was also incorrect and was assured by Amazon's customer service that the specs would be corrected, but they haven't. I wish I had known this before I ordered it.
Summary: I bought this laptop at a great price. Took some getting used to windows 8 and figuring out how to install older software, without any major issues. All of a sudden my headset jack stopped working. 3 hours of tech support from overseas didn't resolve the issue, system restore and wiping it clean still hasn't resolved the problem, I'm really disappointed in the quality of this machine.
Summary: Initially I was very excited by my purchase. The laptop looks nice with a quality feeling about it. But a simple PC benchmark showed that this laptop is really under-powered in today's market. Even my 4 year old Sony Vaio obtained a near double score. This translates in CPUs working under load almost continue with the fan working almost continue and battery life affected.
Summary: Hardware OK, jedoch vollkommen sinnfreie Systemeinrichtung. Kein Zugriff auf SSD, Windows 8 auf normaler HDD, nicht auf SSD installiert, Rechner klafft bei Auslieferung vor Sicherheitslücken. Verseucht mit Zusatzsoftware. Schade HP. Vielleicht toll für Privatanwender welche keine Ahnung haben was sie gekauft haben. Für den Fachmann ein Fiasko für das man mehrere Stunden braucht um es zu beheben.
