Pros: The performance is overall very fast. Boot up time remains low over extended use, as long as you manage your startup programs (after a year of use it's still ready to use within about 20 seconds). USB 3.0 support with 4 ports is a huge plus.

Cons: This product is great, until it breaks. Being HP, this often happens sooner rather than later. And being HP, they do their best to get out of repairing it for you. I had internal hardware issues within several months (no damage whatsoever on my part), and in the end was never able to get it repaired. Also, I don't recommend BeatsAudio, unless you enjoy the nuances of your music being muffled and replaced overwhelming bass. Even if you turn it off, it then changes your tone controls to be terrible so that you think Beats is better. Unless you take the time to mix your own tones, you're stuck with Beats.

Overall Review: I recommend looking for a similar computer but from other brands.
