I reviewed the laptop and not Windows 8 or user errors. Take Notes.

  • Summary: Takes some time to get used to the keyboard due to the size of the laptop. My entire wrist and lower arm rests on the laptop when I type. BIG, bright screen. Very good battery and charges fast. I am comparing this to my last 3 laptops. Lighter than it looks. For the screen size it really is not as heavy as it appears. . - The TrackPad does take some practice. It can be sensitive and it's placement on the keyboard area causes me to occasionally brush it.

Good bang for your buck!

  • Summary: First off, this is a REALLY great laptop. I've had horrible luck with HP in the past, but this really redeems my faith in them to produce a good PC. The drawbacks of this machine definitely do not outweigh the positives. First off, the cons. - While not necessarily a killer negative, the keyboard on this laptop is NOT back lit and could potentially be too small for someone with larger hands. - Glare! This screen is VERY glossy, and it mirrors everything.

I like it a lot except for 2 things

  • Summary: This is a short review. I like it a lot except for 2 things: it has windows 8 and I find it hard to navigate. The other thing is that my mail loads hideously slow. I am running thunderbird on it and never had this kind of problem. Not sure if there is anything I can do about it. Other than that.

  • Excerpt: I AM VSERY PLEASED/HAPPY WITH MY NEW HP LAPTOP. IT SEEMS TO BE ABLE TO DO WHAT I NEED IT TO DO. I'VE HAD A PROBLEM DOWNLOADING FROM MY PC TO AN MP3 PLAYER, HOWEVER. I AM NOT ABLE TO CONSTRUCT PLAYLISTS TO DOWNLOAD MUSIC TO MP3 PLAYER. I DO LIKE THE RAPID RESPONSE TO MY COMMANDS/NEEDS. BUT, IT DOES SEEM TO T AKE A LONG TIME TO BOOT UP. THE COLOR QUALITY AND THE MUSIC PLAYERS FUNCTION WELL..

Great laptop

  • Excerpt: I love my new laptop. I have always been a desktop girl until now. The only thing that was frustrating is that this is the upgrade model. However the advertisement is misleading. It has better memory and storage but by taking the upgrade I lost the touch screen. That is really an issue with Staples and their advertising not the computer. it is amazing and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a new computer. So far there is not a feature that I do not like.

Depending on use

Yadri Gonzalez, Amazon
11 December 2014
  • Summary: I like this laptop very much, it's fast and the keyboard soft to type. However, this is the kind of laptop you would normally use as a desktop due to its size. It's big and heavy, but I bought it because I wanted it as a desktop. A little bit of complications with windows 8, but as everything it gets better when you get used to it.
