Slow, like a dial-up connection

Summary: I feel like I am using a dial-up speed connection again. More specifically, every time I click to open a link or to open a file, it takes 3-4 times longer (10-12 seconds compared to 2-4 seconds) to open than the other two laptops that we have in our home. Surfing through Zillow for real estate is impossibly slow. This is just one example when one wants to be clicking through pictures and new links successively and quickly.
Three stars because the size/weight are just what I need

Summary: But this is the first time I'm really using windows 8 and it's utterly rubbish. 4GB of RAM and this machines runs like a it's only got half a GB of RAM. Once I know I can get all the drivers, I'm upgrading to windows 7.
Summary: The HP Touchsmart is lightweight, highly functional, and provides you with full computer functionality, but it has the touchscreen which works like a tablet. Windows 8.1 has some good functions, but it is not as user friendly as prior versions. Setup is considerably different in the new Windows but once you get the hang of it you can maneuver quickly and efficiently to where you want to go. The processor could be faster, but with good wifi it works well.
Summary: I've bought HP products for years. They always live up to my expectations as far as performance and reliabily. They have the best service in the industry if any issues come up, which rarely happens.
Summary: This laptop is very good for my son. We purchased first http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FCK20SI/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 which was not good at all. Then I spotted this one which has quad core and 4GB memory which is very good for this size. My son loves it. It runs well with no problem. He can watch Netflix, YouTube without any problem. He set everything up. I didn't help him at all. He said he loves it.
