Great laptop with a cheap price.

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 found this laptop at an awesome price on another site and just couldn't resist so I pulled the trigger. Apart from a few quirks, I am mostly happy with it. The biggest draw for me was the 3200-by-1800 screen resolution. As someone who loves photography, this resolution was very attractive. And I have not been disappointed. Pictures viewed on this reveal details I have never seen on any other screen, and I happen to have a few above retina smartphone and tablet screens.
Summary: The title of this review says it all. The computer is fantastic--I've been avoiding HP laptops for years due to sketchy build quality, but this was the only computer that had all of the specifications I wanted (processing power, HD4000 onboard graphics, ultrabook dimensions), and after taking a good look at it, I thought just maybe this one would stay in one piece for a while. Turns out I was right!
Summary: First let me state, I am a certified A+/Net+/Sec+ PC repair technician. I've owned my Sleekbook 14 (SB14) for a little over a year and a half now and it continues to work wonderfully. The size was the main selling point for me as I don't enjoy having to carry around a heavy laptop. Although the SB14 doesn't meet the technological specs to be considered an ultrabook, it does in size and weight.
Summary: HP Sleekbook. I am happy with the purchase. is fast. lightweight. great sound-beatsaudio. I bought this great handset-harman / kardon, sound amazing together form HP. Minus is not installed dvd-cd player. but ...
Summary: For the price I paid, I cannot complain. Windows 8.1 has made it an even better net-book. If you can get this for a price below $425.00, consider it a steal. I 've had it for one year now and no issues.
Summary: Works fine. I'm not a fan of Windows 8, but that's not the laptop's fault. I like that it's thin and lightweight. My main dislike is the touchpad ("mouse") buttons are extremely stiff, a little tough on the thumbs. I do like the option of touch screen and conventional keyboard/mouse-type functions.
Summary: I was looking for a computer that I can use for everyday use as well as designing and programming, as well to update hardware at any time. I owned a Macbook Pro before though I wouldn't call this a downgrade. I highly recommend it for the casual user who are looking for performance in a compact design. The screen isn't fantastic, nor is the battery life (way down from the 7 I was getting before).
Summary: This is the fifth laptop I've ever had (in the past 10 years) and it's the best one. First of all, it's very lightweight: 3.8 lb with battery (the battery is built-in). The design is something between Macbook Air and Macbook Pro but without those horrible sharp edges, which you could even use to slice bread!
