Summary: This is a very nice notebook. The sound is even great and it is compact. Does the job very well with many features. Windows 8 has a lot of pluses, once you get used to it. It is worth taking the time to learn. The only reason I did not give 5 stars if because I have not tried the 4 g yet.
Four out of 5 stars and $700 cheaper than a mac Air with a bigger hardrive

Summary: its 2012 technology in late 2013, works for casual internet, I put MS office on it and firefox and use it for iTunes too. nice having the T-Mobile for emergencies or when I cant tether or get free wifi or am not on office network or at home using my neighbors wifi for free. nice that it came with a 500gb harddrive its half full already.
GREAT FOR 24/7 MONITORING OF ON-LINE FM RADIO STATION
3 June 2013
Summary: Worked well out of the box. I purchased this computer 24/7 to monitor on-line broadcasts of FM radio stations in a city 900 miles away. Into the audio (headphone) output of the computer, I plug in a low-power FM transmitter. This allows me to use any FM radio in my house to listen to the station. The computer was easy to set up, and it reliably runs 24/7... rarely needing a re-boot. It replaced an older eee-PC netbook which seemed to require more re-booting.
Summary: AWESOME! I bought it because of the specs and when I got it, it was even more cooler, jeee... Besides nowdays I don´t think there´s another mini notebook more powerful, well designed and faster as this one, even more, portable. It overpass all the expectatives you could of have for a mini, definitely does the work AAA+++. HP it´s one of the best if not the best.
Summary: I bought it on a whim, I had been outbid on several others! I use it more than my desk PC. It takes a little getting used to and I still haven't found out all of its features and gimmicks. I am 82.
Summary: I had one of these computers and sold it. Big mistake. I was glad to find one with the i3 CPU. HP no longer uses it. eBay wants me to write a hundred words. So the rest is just filler. You can stop reading now.
Summary: I would not recommend this product. Not really satisfied at first but my son convinced me to keep it. Low and behold, 32 days later the hard drive went out and have had nothing but problems since.
