OS and Keyboard frustrating

"Windows 8 is difficult to navigate and to use.
The keyboard is not a traditional PC keyboard but has flat and spaced keys like a MAC - if you "touch type" this keyboard is frustrating bc your hands rest on the track pad causing the screen to jump.
The screen also has a glare if you sit with light or windows behind you.

Excellent Basic touchscreen PC

Pros: lightweight good looking, great price, cool
Cons: glossy screen, win 8 takes some getting used to, no dvd drive
Model Number: HP Pavillion with TouchScreen
"Beautifully designed, lightweight laptop for 600 bucks.
This is my first Windows 8 experience and took me about 15-20 mins to set it up. I love how Windows 8 brought all my Hotmail, skydrive documents etc. and I was playing with it in no time. It does take a little getting used to but honestly, I really like the touchscreen experience.
The keys are a little different and laid our more flatter (like my MacBook Pro), and may take a while to get adjusted to (especially if you are used to of the IBM / Lenovo style raised keys)."

TAKING IT BACK TO THE STORE!

Cons: no dvd/cd drive!
"Got it home and happened to look it up online to check out the reviews. THEN I learned that it has NO DVD/CD drive!!! I just assumed a laptop this size would naturally have one.
Aside from that, the concerns others expressed about the keyboard and Windows 8 have me thinking I would have been very frustrated with this laptop."

Great value for Windows 8 touchscreen laptop

Pros: great touchscreen, quiet operation
Cons: heavy/large for laptop without optical drive
"I love this computer. Like a previous reviewer, I did not realize that this did not have a dvd drive, so I picked up an inexpensive external drive to install my programs. It did take a while to set up and register for a Microsoft store account, but that is a Windows issue, and not the computer's fault. I was a little worried at first because the computer indicated that the WiFi driver was not usable, but it was able to fix itself. The system is fast for my needs and the touch screen is really excellent. My kids live the touch game apps and this screen has an amazing ability to minimize fingerprints. There are some cheap aspects to the computer, such as using stickers on the keys, but I cannot complain at this price."

Piece of junk with Windows 8

Pros: looks nice.
Cons: windows 8!, poor navigation., locks up.
"I purchased this to replace a 4 year old HP PC. While the screen looks nice and the computer runs ok, the Windows 8 and touch screen on this are very bad.
Screen jumps and menu keeps displaying when trying to navigate web pages. Wish I had my money back. Will make a great boat anchor, except I think it floats. Never again!

Wonderful Laptop and a Great Value

Pros: touchscreen working well with windows 8, "sleek" appearance, runs cad programs and games well
Cons: keyboard could be better
Model Number: 15-B153CL
"(Owner of the HP Sleekbook for 1 month)
I chose this laptop because it had a touchscreen and good specs, hoping I could run some graphic-intensive programs. Also it was a great price for a touchscreen laptop. Most of the touchscreens I saw were pricey and the specs were poor.
I was not disappointed when I brought my HP Sleekbook home. The touchscreen was very responsive and quick. It ran my CAD programs with ease and fared well with some medium graphics games (Star Trek Online for example). The thickness of the machine is very likeable and looks nice. I will not complain about the lack of a CD/DVD drive because that is old technology just taking up space and making machines larger. I am happy without it!
Windows 8 works beautifully with touchscreens and I have come to really enjoy working with it on my Sleekbook. If you have doubts, I say give Windows 8 a chance if you are looking to buy a touchscreen. They really work hand in hand. Scrolling through documents and webpages is the best when you can simply flick though them! All my colleagues love to help themselves find information quickly on my laptop and are impress with its abilities.
The only complaint I have with this laptop is the keyboard. The keys are not very responsive and I am always second guessing my strokes. Also, they are not backlit and hard to see in the dark. When you are not comfortable with a keyboard this is a problem. ( -1 star )
Overall, this is an excellent product and I recommend it to anyone in the market for an affordable touchscreen laptop.

Get a 90

Pros: great cpu and video for medium gaming
Cons: keyboard takes a little getting used to (not bad)
"Like most HP Laptops they come with a under powered power supply 65 W is not enough for A8 CPU running off the battery is OK because the laptop will run at a lower power level , but like most people you will leave it plugged in. Trust me once you upgrade the power supply to 90 W it will not crash and will fly. I have two HP's with this CPU."
