Pros: Very responsive, good touch screen, free 200MB per month of T-Mobile wireless is brilliant for checking emails etc when out of Wi-Fi hot spots - a very good idea. All the features you would expect in a laptop of this calibre
Cons: I needed a Windows 8.1 implementation for a very specific business environment. The 8.1 upgrade was an absolute nightmare - see below..
Other Thoughts: This laptop would have received an excellent rating however it came with Windows 8.0...
No problem, so I thought - download the automatic upgrade to 8.1. Seven hours later, after 11 further attempts and having accessed literally hundreds of websites researching the problem (HP support is non-existent - and one of the websites referencing the error generated by this upgrade showed that it had been accessed over 10,000 times!).
Eventually resolved it by going back to basics and reinstalling the Windows 8 operating system - at which stage, it identified the Intel Bluetooth adapter as being an issue. After disabling the adapter, the install went smoothly and the upgrade to 8.1 completed without any issue.
If it was not over a weekend when I had some time to spare, I would have packed the system back into its box and returned it.
Message to HP - this is not a cheap, bottom of the range laptop; Windows 8.1 is not rocket science. It would be really, really appreciated if you could maybe have one of your engineers go through the process that I experienced, identify the issue and post the resolution procedure on your website. This would have saved me hours of frustration, probably save your support staff many hours of resolving issues such as this on a one-on-one basis. It would have also then received a 5 egg rating
Were not for the fact that the Microsoft 8.1 upgrade may be partly to blame in this regard, the rating would have been a single egg...
Please get your act together
This review is from: Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad 2 and New iPad
Pros: Keyboard works like a charm; connects without any problem. Keys are well laid out within the constraints of the size. The cover attaches magnetically and automatically turns the iPad on or off when opened and closed as designed and the entire unit when closed looks elegant.
Cons: With the keyboard cover attached, I CANNOT USE IT AS A TABLET! I am used to the Apple magnetic cover; open it, flip it over to the underside of the device and use the iPad. Trying that with the Logitech cover, I nearly dropped my iPad when the cover came off...! Let me repeat that: to use the iPad as a tablet you have to pull the keypad cover off..
Other Thoughts: It would appear to be a trivial design excercise to have a double hinged cover like the Apple one.... I will be keeping this unit, but I am extraordinarily unhappy that I will have to carry it around separately - or rip it off every time I need to use my iPad...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I am sure it ill be very fast
Cons: Standard configuration using a Silicon Image 3124 controller is provided as a pair of 55GB drives which can be concatenated in the BIOS setup to 111GB, however to condifer this to be enterprise ready is far fetched, to say the least. Although it is not on the VMWare HCL I would expect it to be configurable - if not as a boot drive butr as an SSD datastore... No such luck.
Other Thoughts: Unfortunately it cannot be returned so will have to use it in a PC and make use of it that wayREAD FULL REVIEW
