Overall, I am very unhappy with this laptop. It was sent to me with setup and cursor issues, a damaged keypad, and a cosmetic nick near the finger reader. Windows updates freeze at a certain percentage and do not finish until the next startup. Audio static and errors occur every few weeks, and on a daily basis when using video editing software. After 3 - 4 months, the laptop has slowed down considerably, and I do not download or use any complex programs or files. Windows 8 has too many negatives to list. Live tiles frequently do not update correctly and the Windows Email freezes all the time. I removed it as it is a hassle. Shut down button is not user friendly (ie located in the settings tab) and closing apps takes much longer than it should. When using the mouse pad, it is very easy to hit the right side on accident and shift to a different screen â€" very annoying. The photo live tile has shown the same 5 images since I purchased the laptop, even though I have 15,000+ total images. Same goes for the travel tile - same photos shown since the beginning. The main laptop positives are the sleek design, the fast login, and finger recognition. Iâ€™m looking forward to the Windows 8 update so hopefully this laptop will improve in functioning.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
You know, it's a great computer for the price. I love how quick it is at start up. It can handle the multi-tasking I ask of it. The full sized keyboard, the fingerprint security, and the speakers are super nice. Windows 8 took some getting used to...but after I got the hang of it, it's kind of nice to be able to customize stuff so much...The computer is a keeper.
Easy to use and set up. Love WIndows 8 and fingerprint log in. Great camera for skyping.
Nice product, all around!
I was pleasantly surprised when I turned this computer on for the first time. It's very sleek, light, and easy to use. I LOVE Windows 8, as well. I didn't realize when I ordered this computer that there was fingerprint technology on it, and I love that! It's a perfect size for a computer; it's not to small for movies and videos, and not too big to carry around for school. I really like this new laptop, and will forever stick with HP.

Took a little bit to get used to the Windows 8, but the performance is superb. Would recommend to anyone and i wish this was my work laptop.
This product could use some improvements
Has trouble with streaming video after sales people said it would be no problem. Slow to load and will freeze for buffering or just lock up altogether.
Good computer with little flaws.
Everything has worked fine with it in the first week, however, in the second week I started noticing little glitches. When trying to access my control panel, it would not let me and then would not let me access my display using the windows button. I had to shut it off using Alt+F4 to resolve the issue. Everything else has worked fine so far , performance great! Just long updates and start up time.
Notebook works perfectly
I use my laptop for GIS classes and it works perfectly, in terms of performance, besides looking good! I'm sad that the keyboard doesn't light up but it has enough light even so. The camera is amazing for video calls, with good visibility even when it's quite dark! And the speakers... hehehe!
This product is wonderful!

My previous HP's processor stopped working and I was looking for something that would perform even better than the old one and do what I need it to do at the same time. This computer has gone above and beyond my expectations. I am a student and I know that I can trust this computer to do what it should. Also, the programs and set-up of the computer are really awesome. They took a little while to get used to, but they are really savvy and modern. I would definitely recommend this computer. It is quick, light, sleek, and has a great sound system!
