5 out of 5 eggsA pinch of salt

Pros: I am writing this review to give an example of how just you have to take the reviews with a pinch of salt.I came here to see if this was a good buy or not and then I read the review from Victor J. above.His cons and whinning come from being uninformed and not from any fault of the machine itself. The machine comes designed the way it os for a specific purpose ,which is to run windows 8 operating system. He gives 3 eggs to the product based on "limitations" that are only in his mind because no one or nowhere does it says that this machine is designed to run Ubuntu. One thing is that the sytem have hardware or software flaw, and another that you buy a hammer and try to use it as a scissor. Just goes to shows how disoriented and stupid some reviewers can get. ----
"no optical drive, slow 5400 rpm hd, windows 8 with no downgrade to 7, not easily set up for dual boot, Ubuntu doesn't like the display (could be because of touch screen), touch screen pretty much useless if you are already comfortable with a mouse"---
Are these really cons??? A BIG NO, .. the model is a notebook, not a full laptop. If you want a full laptop you can not expect it to be light. It is in the title. You simply dont know want to read or want to be stupid.In the specs it says clearly a 5400 HD,-- you can not expect a fast 5400 HD anywhere, and no laptop is designed for dual boot. All of these are things YOU want ,but then you should not look for a modern windows 8 machine and then post a 3 egg review just because IT COMES WITH EXACTLY WHAT THE SPECS SAY AND DOES EXACTLY WHAT IT WAS DESIGNED FOR. Sorry , but you being an @hole dont make this laptop bad or deserving of 3 eggs. Now ,.. tell me which hardware or software MALFUNCTIONS the system have and we can start a decent conversation about reviews.

Same as the review by Jesse,,.. you want to boot from the mssd?? It was not designed for that , and most of the modern netbooks have the bios locked to work this way. This is not a flaw of the system. It is a flaw of you not getting informed before buying. Again if you want to do that either change the hdd for an sdd or buy something else older from some other brand that IT IS DESIGNED from the ground up to boot from a mSSD. Of course if you both could get all this charasteristics on a i74700MQ notebook you would be paying over 1200 dollars and not 800. Please get informed before reviewing. It just makes you look dumb.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: People who review without getting informed are just ignorants.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: it's thin, it works

Cons: no optical drive, slow 5400 rpm hd, windows 8 with no downgrade to 7, not easily set up for dual boot, Ubuntu doesn't like the display (could be because of touch screen), touch screen pretty much useless if you are already comfortable with a mouse

Other Thoughts: I was going to send it back the first day but the restocking fee changed my mind. If you have a specific use for a laptop with these limitations, I'm sure the quality is there in the long run being HP. You can't tell the processor is an i7 because the HD drags it down. Get an SSD to replace it. That was my direction instead of losing the money on return. I didn't think I would miss the optical.. really! W8 is just a matter of getting used to. There are ways to make it feel just like W7. I still prefer Ubuntu. 3 eggs because it just does what I bought it for but no more. RESEARCH before buying!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Laptop

Pros: This laptop processor is faster than my overclocked i5-2500k. Many people don't like windows 8 but windows 8 with a touchscreen rocks. I love windows 7 but once you get used to windows 8 you will like it more. Case is aluminum and feels very high quality. Always stays cool. You can also install a mSSD you can use as a cache device with intel rapid storage. With a 64gb cache my computer boots in about 7 seconds and is perceivably as fast as my desktop with a dedicated 128gb ssd. The speakers on this laptop are the best I have ever heard. Very loud and crisp for a laptop. Has a fingerprint reader that you can use for almost anything. I use mine for my windows logon and everything that needs a password on my browser. Battery can last all day with new haswell processor. I have gone as long as two days without charging it.

Cons: No disk drive but I am fine with that. I know how to create a disk image file with my desktop and install from a usb flash drive. Can not boot from mSSD slot. It would be nice if this were addressed in future bios updates. I installed a mSSD and cannot boot from my SSD. I called HP tech support and at this time no options to boot from this slot are possible. Some people posted online that they can clone the operating system onto the mSSD and delete the boot section from the HDD then use system repair disk to fix but this did not work for me. I spent an entire day trying to make this work but it is not possible.
