although I did have to get my HP laptop fixed before I could use it for the first time, it was working when I got it back.
After receiving it back I got a notification that it still needed 10 updates, I started to install them, this took a very long time and 1 out of 4 updates would not install. I am not thrilled with the battery life either, I charged the battery completely before attempting the updates and the battery went dead before I could finish(about 4-5 hours).
I have been able to access and perform everything on the HP laptop that I am able to do on my desktop pc - 3D games online without having to download an app, documents, built-in Xbox, video chat/skype, etc.
I don't like that the touch screen and keyboard can't be used together, you need to switch back and forth.
I feel it really should have a backlit keyboard, this would make night use so much easier...
If you are looking for a very complex laptop that will take the place of a desktop pc then this is for you.
But if you are wanting to visit social media, email, chat, etc then I would recommend something else easier to use like a Chromebook for example.
