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.
Summary: It's decent. I got a sweet deal on this laptop about a year ago. It does its job. Windows 8 is pretty annoying on a laptop, but that's neither here nor there I guess. As far as the physical attributes go, it's slim and light, although it feels a little cheap and plastic. It's slowed down quite a bit in the last year, and the battery life's deteriorated quite a bit. But it still does everything I need it to.
Summary: First, I hate Windows 8! It completely sucks. It is light, at about 4.5 lbs., but is quite slow. My 7 year old HP is faster. To me the touch screen is a PIA, a mouse is faster, and easier. I will be returning this unit, and going with a more conventional laptop, no touch screen, and with a mouse.
Summary: I was excited about this and after careful decision making on which model to get, I decided on this touchscreen specifically for the numeric keyboard. Well you can imagine my disappointment opening the box to find I had been deceived. although, the computer is pretty and seems a great value, it is just not what I ordered and is going back. It seems like a great laptop though which is why I gave it some stars..
Summary: The laptop itself is alright, but the picture it shows on here is not the picture of the actual product you'll get. This laptop does not have a numeric keyboard on the right side. Be careful when you are purchasing.
Summary: windows 8 is worse than 7.too complicated.simple features like bluetooth missing. being a 14 in laptop it should have dvd drive.mumeric key should have been saperate too. it is light ,battery is good.
Summary: Has anyone tried activating WiDi on this machine? According to Intel's website, the 2nd gen i3-2377M processor is Wireless Display capable. If you Google 'WiDi windows 8' there are instructions on Intel's site for activating it on Windows 8 machines, but the display drivers apparently aren't validated for whatever Windows 8 build HP puts on these machines.

Summary: Pros: * Nice looking thin form factor * CoolSense Technology is top notch, laptop just doesn't get HOT (warm but after long use) * Good mix of ports (2xUSB 3.0 and single USB 2.0, HDMI output -> video AND sound to your TV) * Very quiet * External battery can easily be replaced by user Cons(iderations): * Synaptics PS/2 Port Touchpad is finicky under Windows 8 * No optical drive (but advertised as not having one - just beware) * battery life on short side ("up to 4...
