Hate it, and can't return it

Summary: It is so hard to use. The caps keys don't work. The screen has terrible resolution. BUT because it was sold by some other middleman company, not Amazon--I was told if I try to return it I will have to pay a 20% restocking fee.
Summary: Computer fell apart around a year of having it. The hinges moved out of place, and started pushing to back of the computer out of it's place. Also, the bottom part of the computer which holds the keyboard and motherboard is splitting in half. Called HP about this, and told me to send it in.

Summary: I bought this laptop more or less 4 months ago, and since then I have had to send it to HP warranty service 2 times!!! It's incredible how bad this laptop is considering the price isn't as cheap as other laptops.
Excerpt: it said for entertainment but does not have dvd player the mouse pad doesnt really work good and its suppose to be touch screen but it wasnt as for connecting to the internet it will connect but it will also disconnect as well just for the heck of it >.<
Summary: Buyers beware and read this carefully. Do not make my mistake. The battery life on this laptop is nowhere close to the "ultrabook" range. Note that this is not the 13-2050nr ultrabook reviewed favorably by cnet (even though it has the same name and only slightly different model number).
the worst experience yet with any laptop in my whole life

Summary: So I bought this laptop more or less 8 months ago. Since week 5 the adapter (charger) starter bothering it keeps saying it's not pluged in eventhoug it is. So I have to slam it super hard in to the laptop and then it really works.
Summary: Lid is flimsk and creaks/clicks. Webcam has never worked properly. The few times that it did work it was completely fuzzy with horizontal blue lines running up and down. It disconnects every time I touch the lid which makes the usb-disconnect warning sound. I had to disable it in the device manager.
Summary: Read all the way through, I would not recommend this item. It's really a work of art and responsive beyond what I imagined. In essence it was everything I expected from it except that it had a major flaw.
Summary: The screen of this laptop is literally about to snap off. The left hinge is snapping off and taking the screen with it. This happened within the first couple months of owning the laptop. On top of all of this several screws have fallen out making clicking of the trackpad shoddy.
