Summary: Works nicely for a web surfer and Microsoft Office user. For video games I had to use a mouse as the touch screen was a little wack, but everything else seemed to run very smoothly. Very light weight and easy to carry around.
Excerpt: Bought this laptop for my son to do his virtual school online. It is the perfect size and very lightweight. The touchscreen is great when you have to do a lot of scrolling. The picture is clear and vibrant. The only downfall is that the computer doesn't have a disk drive. I would have loved a dvd drive or rewritable disk drive. My sin loves it to play his games and surf the web. I even like using this laptop more than my own because of the touch screen.
Summary: I got this unit to take on a trip to the UK, and it worked great everywhere. The unit boots really quickly, you can get to the password screen in about ten seconds, and get to the desktop in another fifteen. It's the first Windows machine I've had that does it. It boots faster than my iPad 2. As for the unit itself, it's nice and small and fits easily into a simple sleeve case, no need for a bulk book bag for this computer.
works well but the display and body are too fragile

Summary: I have a 14-b120dx. Mine is less than a year old and I've already replaced the screen twice because it's so easy to flex it or even hit it from behind. The display is a little over 3/8 inch thick and you have to be really careful how you handle it or transport it. A padded case isn't enough, you'll need a hard shell case. Also I see a crack on the main body just under the edge of the display. I don't remember it getting hit hard there either.
Summary: I was very disappointed that the hard drive failed after only one year and three months. HP would not replace it for free because the manufacturers warranty of one year expired. I will never buy another HP computer again.
Summary: First off, the picture is wrong. This is a sleekbook as stated and not a touchsmart. The only real difference here is the lack of a touchscreen. All the specs are top of the line and everything runs smoothly. The build of the laptop is excellent. Very sleek and love the silver metal finish. Performance is fantastic and battery life is great. Haswell is a difference maker. Resolution of 1366x768 at 14 inches leaves me wanting more but adequate. Touchpad can be finicky.
