5 out of 5 eggsUpdating Review

Pros: I wrote the previous 3 star review a bit too fast. All of the pros and cons from the last review still apply. However, after using it for a month, I'm pretty pleased. Processor speed is spectacular. I was also able to order a drive kit (overpriced as it's available only one place), and install a 2TB drive by disassembling a Seagate 2TB slim drive. The 9.5mm slim 2TB worked fine in this laptop. I moved the original 1TB to the 2nd bay and now have 3TB installed.

Cons: Still slightly aggravated with the dings in the metal housing as well as the need to buy proprietary power supply to not get a nag screen. I got a 2nd genuine HP PSU for the travel bag off an auction site for half the price HP charges.

Other Thoughts: Worth the price in Fall 2014. Top performance for budget price. Have been playing Steam games in 1080p with mostly ok results. The graphics are just good enough for casual gaming.

3 out of 5 eggsPluses and minuses

Pros: Big display that is touch. No dead pixels. The touchpad is one of the best I've ever used on a PC, although I did have to turn off the reverse setting they had pre-set for 2 finger scrolling. Great performance - over 8,000 CPU Passmarks. Very fast memory speed and 2D performance. Win 8.1 is set up fairly well with minimal junkware. Runs pretty quietly, although the fan will kick in if the CPU is working hard. It then quiets back down. The power supply stays cool, barely getting warm. Has an extra drive bay internally but requires a $30 kit to add a drive.

Cons: Hard drive is the bottleneck in the system speed. 3D performance is mid-range. Games can be played on fairly decent resolution if anti-aliasing is turned down/off and some of the settings are reduced. The real huge problem with this laptop is the proprietary nature of almost everything about it. It complains if a non-HP charger is used. The BIOS is locked down with no way to get to advanced settings. For example, it won't display ANY video on a monitor connected via HDMI until Windows, Ubuntu, etc. fully start. You just sit there with a blank screen. If using this like a desktop replacement, to do anything outside Windows, you have to do it on the laptop's own display. Even my $299 netbook has a setting to go to HDMI before internal LCD. This laptop probably has it, except HP has locked the user out of those settings. Even though device boot preference can be set, it's completely ignored. The only way to boot from something like CD or USB is to hit [ESC] at start up and force it to that device, even though the bios has the boot order properly set. Also, I discovered the network card can't be changed out, again because of the way HP has crippled the BIOS and only whitelisted certain cards they want you to buy from them.

Other Thoughts: The unit I got is in fact a refurb and it's very obvious why. The lid has a paint scrape on one corner, small and you have to look to see it. Inside, the speakers have a small section of missing paint. The worst thing is a DENT next to the keyboard in the metal. It's fairly small but definitely a dent, like a car door ding. Whoever had it before me must've driven it to the grocery store and parked it too close to someone. Be aware these are non-returnable. So if dings and dents will bother you, you might think twice about just getting a new one.

I got a $14 32GB USB 3.0 thumb drive at the same time. The very first thing to do when getting this laptop is to make a Windows recovery CD with the Windows recovery disk creator tool (not the HP tool), and include the OEM partition. This all fits on the 32GB drive. This can be used for restore later. Then make the HP restore disks - 5 DVD single-layer required and takes 30 minutes per disc. The HP tool will only let you make a single set of discs. A simple Google search will explain how to reset the counter. And/or just back up the first discs with something like ImgBurn.

The extra tray tools HP includes are fairly decent and worth keeping.
