Summary: This is not a bad laptop. Fast, nice screen with decent contrast. However, it came with the support partition defective and the first time I started it, it told me no boot disk available. After another restart it suddenly worked, but once in a while I still get the "no boot disk" error. After 2 weeks of usage, the laptop touchscreen now started going crazy. I registers touches all the time if no one touches the screen.
A 5 stars for Eluktronics, 1 star or less for HP! No global HP warranty!

Summary: After buying it and power on, I got a black screen. I called HP Argentina customer service center for help. They conducted me through some tests and diagnosed that there was necessary to replace a HW video piece. I wasn't confident about their technical capabilities since they asked me to remove the battery but there is no removable battery on this model .....
Summary: First off I loved this computer because it was touchscreen, but after a few days of using this laptop I noticed I hardly ever used the touchscreen. another thing I liked about this laptop is it's thin which is a plus, but this laptop is sooooo slow. I mostly use it for school work to google information watch new clips etc however I get so frustrated trying to watch a video because it has to constantly stop to buffer.
Speakers and audio-outlet buzz on two separate units

Summary: The good: The unit looks beautiful, with the i7 processor it is fast, and the touch screen is responsive. The bad: The audio buzzes every minute or two when listening to music, playing a dvd, etc. I thought it was the system, received a replacement (Amazon was great at handling it!), but the new unit had the same problem. Went on various forums and discovered I'm not the only one with this issue.
Lot's of nice things all ruined by unsolvable bad!

Summary: We purchased the Spectre XT 15-4010nr for the high res IPS panel at an affordable price and in a small form factor for 15". Everything about the laptop has been mostly as expected with really nice screen and most things working well after we got past Windows 8 junk(and it is JUNK, so annoying to NEED the touch screen to really get used to it as the gestures are just annoying). We didn't have any huge complaints with the touch pad and it is nice and big.
Summary: I purchased the spectre xt touchsmart primarily because it was one of the only 15" laptops that had a thunderbolt port. I work in an office with mostly mac users and only have access to apple thunderbolt displays. As soon as I got the laptop, the first thing I did was plug it into the display. It did not work. I shipped the unit back and got a second one. That one also did not work.
