Rated 5 out of 5Â by artgeek VERY happy with my purchase!
I was so pleased with my laptop, I don't even know what to say! I purchased a different laptop before this one from a DIFFERENT company, and I was very disappointed with it.
When I started looking in HP, I was looking for something with enough power and quality to fit my needs as a student and digital artist. I did not care about having LeapMotion, because it will not serve a purpose to me, but the rest of the features and specs were important. I was also nervous about switching to Windows 8.
After toying with my laptop for a few days, I am so far extremely happy and even relieved with my purchase! I'm relieved that I am finally away from the old computer that was making my life a lot harder! This laptop can handle all of my adobe software, boots up super fast, opens apps and programs like a breeze, and I haven't had one issue!
Now, like I said, I was not interested in LeapMotion. I was interested in the specs. I have tested out the LeapMotion, though. It was difficult to start up at first. I had to update a few things, and I thought it wasn't working at all. Once working, it was pretty cool. I still don't have a need for it, but it is definitely pretty neat. As far as I can tell, though, it only works on the LeapMotion games, so I really don't see a need for it unless you just want to play a little. I also noticed that if you want to have it read your hand on the far left side of the screen, the LeapMotion loses the signal from you. It's a little wonky, but, like I said, I really didn't need it anyway.
Also, the back of the screen is a bit flimsy. I will definitely be extra careful with this laptop. But for everything else, I'm so pleased, and I would make this purchase again and again!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Roy69 This computer lacks nothing!
Excellent computer, all features needed are here. HP was prompt in sending. Have used for 4 months, and ordered one for my wife.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by CSM1 Don't bother with this one..
First of all, could not get the leap feature to work and after spending hours downloading my software and settings, the machine shut off and would not reboot. I returned it. Up until this point, I have always had very good luck with HP products. I have owned many but this is the worst computer I have ever seen. I would not recommend it.

This computer is super fast and the features are terrific. Love the lighted keyboard. Easy to set up to work with your software and network.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Amsteldamer Still without the leap, it is good.
minimalist presentation and "maximalist" performance. in spite of the inopportune change of Win 8 (why change a good thing?)

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Vini Great Product
I do recommend to buy this computer, it have great features, the video card is awesome, so does the processor.
The sound is not loud, but optimized, very good.
Leap motion is not that much.
It takes a LIFETIME to arrive.
You CAN play something with really high graphics, though it will cook your fingers on "WASD".
