Summary: It runs slow with internet explorer so I switched over to Google chrome and its a little better. It also did not come with recovery media disc and I know some do and some don't. So I contacted the seller see if I was suppose to get a recovery disc but, they never got back to me. So I called HP and they took care of the problem, by sending me a recovery usb. This was after I had tried to burn a copy and it failed three times.
Good for travel, needs an SSD to bring out its best.

Summary: Bought this laptop to take on a three week vacation with my in-laws overseas. At home it only gets light use as a secondary computer. Out of the box the computer response time was slower than I hoped. I upgraded to a smaller SSD drive and that made the response time good (if it came with an SSD it would have related it at 5 stars).
It works great for his school work and for light internet

Summary: Got it for my son's birthday. It works great for his school work and for light internet. (YouTube, Ebay, Facebook Ect) Is it as fast or powerful as my DV7 with the I7 no, but works great for its intended purpose. The touchscreen is awesome.
Summary: Keyboard is fine (keys are smaller than regular keys) Speed is fine (not the best) Keyboard is a little noisy The touch screen is really good, not problems so far Is really cool sense, I work with the computer on my lap (over my legs) and I dont feel the hot sense
Summary: I bought this HP model through Amazon last year. I would say there are strong pluses and minuses, with the pluses outweighing. First the minuses. The computer (as remarked) is often maddeningly slow. I suppose I have gotten used to this, so it is no longer the issue it was at the outset. The other minus is Windows 8. I have found the platform useless. I mean the colored "tiles" accessing various desktops which - I suppose - were an attempt to make it look like an I-pad.
