This doesn't have touch screen on my model. The FHD display really surprised me. It's better picture than a lot of these TVs. As with all products they hide the defects from you until a month later. As soon as the 33th day rolled on I turned on the laptop and discovered sure enough it's got a burnt pixel. No way to fix that without replacing the screen. Unless you have 5+ burned out pixels, good luck getting a return or any repairs. HP is still shady in that regard. I fully upgraded the machine when I got it. 16GB ram, 1TB Samsung 980 SSD. The performance actually is comparable to my tower in many respects. I have a Geforce 980, an octocore AMD CPU, and 24GB DDR3 ram in my tower. This laptop of course has a little less RAM, but it plays games about just as well as on my tower. I really am surprised at this. The cooling situation is absolutely garbage with this laptop. The engineers put the CPU exhaust port pointing directly into the hinge portion of the case. This makes it so the computer is actively fighting by blowing air into a 1/5 CM gap. There is just a row of holes in the bottle for air intake. I picked up a tray with a cooling fan pad and that solved the heat problem. I see it having problems in the future just because of how they designed the fan. The excess heat not only kills your hardware lifespan but it slows your machine down by auto throttling. If I could I would have installed heat spreaders all over the inside of this machine, but there just isn't room. They couldn't even be bothered to make the air inlets in the front of the case. It is asking to burn up after so many years deliberately. I had problems with HP in the past, they screwed up a laptop return I sent in, then blamed me for water damage when I had before and after pictures, so I'm not shocked at how they treat customers. I swore I'd not buy another HP but this one was just too cheap to pass up. It's super light weight. The camera is nothing fancy, in Windows 11, you will find you lack all of your audio enhancement options. It's instead been replaced by this crap HP audio tool. Ditch it as soon as you can and find something like Pulse audio so you can hear out of the cheap cheap cheap dog szzz cheap speakers. You'll also want to get a good set of headphones. The performance is a little low unless you do add that second stick of RAM as so many other people have pointed out. The machine simply wasn't designed properly, and they are taking it out of the consumers pocket by keeping them ignorant and not showing important aspects such as showing how the fan is smack dab in the middle of a 1/2cm gap. When you close the lid and open it after 20 minutes you'll find it's incredibly warm if you have it hooked up to HDMI. It forces you to keep the screen open, which isn't good to have static screens. I honestly think the burned out pixel happened just from the excess heat, but there isn't anything I can do about it. It isn't that bad, but once you see something you can never unsee it. I have a warranty but again, it's not going to cover this damage, so I spent money and not even 30 days later it has depreciated in value by the price of the LCD screen. The case is the cheapest plastic they could find. Given this was produced during the pandemic you're left with another problem. Check your RAM speeds. If you get stuck with a 1R16 chip you're basically having 1 librarian trying to organize 16 shelves, whereas the good ram 2R8 would be equal to 2 librarians keeping up with 8 shelves. Now you can see how the extra work load slows your machine. They don't mention this in their sales page or documentation, and you'll only find out AFTER you get it and run software to look at it, or pull the machine apart. Overall, I probably wouldn't buy this machine again, even though it works fast for an entry level computer. It's just too poorly designed. I give it a year or two before it fails. Most likely, knowing HP it will be 26 minutes after the OEM warranty expires. They used this planned obsolescence to rip off customers, and even though it's been nearly 8 years since I swore I wouldn't buy another one, they changed; for the worse.

So this was the first non high-end gaming laptop I've ever purchased, with the intent of using it as a cheap laptop to carry around for school, work, and general basic use. To be quite honest, it's surprisingly nice! After I got over the initial shock of downgrading to a 15" display from my previous 17", the screen is of good quality. The processing speed is not disappointing at all. The sound is great (it actually can get obnoxiously loud if you are into that). I don't find Windows 11 to be offensive to use. Keyboard is friendly. It seems to be built well and feels of decent quality (not super cheap feeling). It's light to carry. Loads videos and webpages quickly. No crashing or general use issues as of yet. I've even run the full Adobe Creative Suite on this thing and it's running just fine. I'm really pleasantly surprised. And coming from someone who is used to a 5k+ Alienware Gaming Laptop (aka me), the fact that I don't hate this thing is truly impressive enough. If you pressed me to find something I don't love about it, I'd say the fan seems to run more than expected and the battery life is meh. It gives you zero warning before just shutting off after dying. But after the panic subsided that I had just possibly lost all my work, I plugged it in and hit the power button, only to be giddy with happiness that it just booted up with all my web pages still loaded and logged in the way I left it. So I am not even mad. No touch screen on my model. And I can't attest to it's gaming abilities because, well, I have an Alienware for that. Seriously though, best spent $400 ever.

I like how lightweight it is, the ram is upgradeable & so is the SSD drive! I have always been partial to HP; my last 4 computers have been HP's. I find them to be reliable and I am hoping this one is too. It drains the battery faster than I would like, but it could be my settings, I will keep you all posted. Thank you, Amazon!!! Additional Findings! A month in and this is what I discovered: When I ordered this laptop, I had two things in mind. # One is a backup computer for my desktop, I use it for my entertainment system, it is partly a backup Plex Server. It works great by the way. # Two I wanted something lightweight that I could take with me to a coffee shop and do whatever, as I enjoy my coffee outdoors. No complaints so far. I have since tweaked my battery settings and have literally increased my battery life by about 3 times between recharges. Go to YouTube and look up how to extend battery life on an HP Laptop and you will find helpful tips. I have no heat problem what so ever (some people have complained about that.) I upgraded the memory to 16 gigs and it is fast as all get out. So, hence my rating stays a 5 star! Keep in mind it is made of plastic, be gentle, if you wish to upgrade on your own, don't be a bull in a China shop. Yes, before you ask, you can hook it up to a large monitor and close the lid, it is in Windows settings, when in doubt YouTube is my go-to. I hope this helps I am happy to answer questions, if I can. Understand what you are buying and how you want to use the product and have fun!

this is a good cheap laptop for doing various activities, however gaming is a very poor experience on this laptop. i dont know why it is marketed for gaming, as it can barely hit 30 frames at 1080 on most games. i assume you could run some very light indie games or super well optimised games on it, but anything that requires any kind of gpu power, forget about it. i will still give 5 stars tho because it does everything i need it to and does it well. good battery life i usually get at least 5 hours of use out of it per charge.
