3 out of 5 eggsNotebook is great, service is unbearable

Pros: Computer came as expected, and for the most part, performed as expected. The inclusion of the touchscreen with the standard touchpad is great with windows 8.

Cons: Not the fastest computer available, but for the price, it performs appropriately. Wireless adapter seems to be faulty. Gave it some time to make sure it wasn't some other fluke circumstance. Will be using the computer in the same room as smartphones, tablets, desktop computer, Xbox - all of which connect seamlessly to the wireless internet. This notebook is incapable of maintaining a connection to the network for more than a minute or two. no troubleshooting helps. It's understandable that occasionally a computer will ship with a faulty component. However, it should be possible to fix the problem through appropriate tech support. After an hour on the phone with HP support (4 calls, 2 of which were disconnected) I have never felt so let down by the lack of care, and simultaneously frustrated by the incompetence of the tech support staff of HP. I was transferred, disconnected, and generally given the run around. Even when speaking with a 'supervisor' who asked for my number in case we got disconnected, I received no return call. There is an open case with HP now, but despite mentioning the case number to each of the staff to whom I spoke, they started me from the beginning, running through the motions of the initial "device manager" checks. Again, never felt so snubbed by a support service. This will absolutely be last time I purchase anything from HP. I will update accordingly if anything is to change, but until then, buyer absolutely beware - HP is not willing to employ a support staff who provides any kind of support whatsoever. Extremely disappointed. (Newegg still coming through strong, and delivering everything as expected - as usual. HP could learn a thing or two.)

Other Thoughts: See Cons. In a nutshell, Newegg delivered exactly as they should have. HP however has seemingly done everything they can to burn whatever bridge may have existed between us. HP support is atrocious.

4 out of 5 eggsReview Update

Pros: Good computer

Cons: Body design flaw

Other Thoughts: I had previously given 5 stars on a review. Now after a month of use I have discovered there is a design flaw in the body. The ethernet port design leaves 2 sharp plastic edges under computer. Daily use of the laptop inserting and removing it from my bag has ripped the lining. I contacted HP about them sending me an ethernet port cover to address the issue but they said they did not have one. That is a lie as they have printers that ship with ethernet port covers. I have temporarily remedied the situation with covering it with tape(ghetto). I have also Docked them 1 star for not being helpful to remedy the design issue that could be fixed with a $0.05 plastic part.

5 out of 5 eggsNice little laptop

Pros: Not Intel, fast, light, quick on the boot, flexible and touchscreen

Cons: Came with that excremental Windows 8. I hate it but she loves it so... pheh! No internal cd drive so I had to buy an external.

Other Thoughts: I think this laptop's a bargain, I bought an external DVD so I can load programs but that was only a little bother. It's taken everything I've thown at it. Windows 8 (may satan curse it) works fine and I can even game on it in a pinch.

4 out of 5 eggsOne of the better HPs I've owned.

Pros: Fast
The touch screen works surprisingly well, and makes Windows 8 tolerable.
So far it's tackled everything I've thrown at it from office tasks to limited gaming with ease. Doesn't overheat like a previous laptop from a different manufacturer.
Quite surprisingly long battery life.

Cons: Windows 8.

Other Thoughts: This was purchased primarily for business and college use, so your individual mileage may vary.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Value

Pros: Great Value Buy at $450
Good performance speeds
Responsive Touchscreen

Cons: HP bloatware
only 4 hours battery life

Other Thoughts: Not as slim or as pretty as some of the other Laptops out there. You can purchase spare batteries and they are super easy to swap. To get the most out of your system you MUST get used to Win 8 interface. I pinned my task manager to task bar to easily kill apps I no longer need.
For those who are interested, windows experience scores are, 6.3/7.0/5.8/6.6/5.9

5 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop

Pros: •Responsive touch screen
•Bright, crystal clear screen
•Great amount of storage
•Fast enough for daily PC task
•Touch-pad is smooth, and responsive. It also offers some of the touchscreen gestures (side/top swipes etc.)
•Windows 8 x64 (thanks to the touch screen)

Cons: •Even though the HDD is large, it is slow
•Below average battery life (3 hours)
•Fingerprint magnet (to be expected). Order item N82E16882444007 with it and you'll be golden

Other Thoughts: Once you familiarize with navigating it, Windows 8 is actually enjoyable with a touchscreen.

All in all you can't beat the performance for the price with this laptop! I strongly recommend the purchase to those looking for a general purpose, non-gaming (it will play some) PC.
