Looks Good, Nice and Light.

Not very fast, in fact quite slow.

Have only just started to use it so hard to tell what the good and bad points are.

Came with Windows 7 professional which is fine and what I wanted; typical Microsoft though, downloaded Windows 10 without my knowing - said they were updates! Wasted several hours with that. This is not a fault with HP nor the laptop hardware though....

Deleted the installed partitions and installed Ubuntu instead of Win 7/8. The installed Win 10 ina Virtual Machine.

Memory and hard drive a little limited.

very well built, ease of access to hard drive & ram slots. excellent on-board sound - the speakers really do sound much better than many laptops I've heard. Included windows 8.1 disc & drivers disc (see bad points) Came with a HP laptop bag in the box

Battery life isn't so great - but I guess the hardware will drain it quite fast. Fingerprint sensor (login etc) only seems to work on win 7. drivers for windows 8 are on the disc, but no software. Its a bit of a gimmick I think, but if you intend to...
