  1. I was considering this laptop and herein sum up the negatives:
    1. Not for gaming. Moderate level graphics & slow hard drive. 16 gigs of fast memory, but accessing virtual memory will bog down memory hogs, like games.
    2. A large platform with wasted interior space. Room for a second HD/SSD bay, but none there. If considering swapping for an SSD, this case is EXTREMELY fragile & difficult to open, so replacing HD or memory is risky.
    3. Power hungry touchscreen display and a lightweight battery.
    4. HDMI, but no remote wireless screen [WIDI], means you need to cable-up to a TV.

    The display is magnificent, so for $1000, this could have been a very nice multimedia laptop if HP had added BD to its optical drive. Who did HP imagine would be their target user? Insufficient for high-end users; cumbersome for watching videos; too expensive for everyday surfing.
