Summary: I've had this computer for 2 years and the functionality has been ok, however the exterior is very flimsy plastic. I sat down too hard while holding mine and the casing broke near the screen hinge, so the screen sags on one side and the broken part of the case pulls away. I took it to my repair guy and he said it can't be fixed and because of where the break is and the instability of the hinge, it will most likely cause the screen to go out at some point.
Summary: I have had this laptop for over a year now and have been happy with it. It is the size of a chromebook but with a full Windows 8 operating system (8.1 was a free and easy upgrade). A unique feature is the built-in 4G. Although the listing cites 200MB of free data for 2 years, T-Mobile recently (mid 2014) increased that to the life of the computer. Also, for most existing postpaid T-Mobile customers, the 200MB increases to 1GB of free data per month - not a bad deal.

Summary: The size of this laptop makes it super portable. The SIM card hookup works fantastic with good 4G speed and when I am at home I just plug into my network. The card that I use in my Chromebook through T-Mobile gets shuffled back and forth between the two devices and hooks right up. So when I have used up my free data I can just use my paid SIM card on the HP or the Chromebook. It's very convenient.
Summary: This laptop is an excellent choice as a mini travel-friendly basic use notebook with numerous bells and whistles for a decent price. Pro's: *Bluetooth & Wi-Fi, with ample slots for USB (has 3), HDMI, SD, and TV output. *Stellar HD LED screen. Lots of full, luminous color. *More Power than meets the eye. On this laptop I use the latest Audacity software, CyberLink Power DVD 14, Sony Movie Studio Platinum 13, etc without a problem.
