Battery

Battery:
"Something was wrong with battery."

"Aside from the 80% charging problem, the battery is held in by two screws, not sure how I feel about that, not sure it matters except for long flights when I used to carry two batteries."
_
"Pros: great i7-4710 processor good screen - not touch battery is held in by two screws - weird but at least I can one day change the battery very easy looks like 4.5 hours or more on battery GREAT has bluetooth and paired easy with my headset (HP did not have bluetooth, really) It boots quickly and shuts down fast."
_
"Cons - Terrible battery life (lasts 1 hour after 6 months of use), screen display is not very good not very comfortable on the eyes after hours of working), speakers are ok."
_
"Viewing angles are decent but the speaker loudness tends to decrease after a few months of use (con maybe)Also the touchpad isnt very good so I recommend using a mouseheating isnt a issue,sometimes on heavy usage the area by the num keys and power button heats up just a bit and also the bottom surface so I recommend not keeping it on your lap,also the screen is kind of a fingerprint magnet and battery usage is decent about 3 hours on full charge."
_
"BATTERY The battery life on this thing is amazing."
_
"PROS: - good battery life - great performance in everyday tasks- good gaming performance - lightweight & thin - okay speakers - beautiful - number pad - 3 USB ports CONS: - okay speakers - weird function buttons - hard to access BIOS - integrated graphics card limits gaming, but still keeps up - NO CD DVD DRIVE (i didn't care, but you might) REVIEW: AESTHETICS This laptop is beautiful, people often ask me if it is a MacBook (and i respond NO! )"
_
"It is quite fast, great battery life for a full size laptop, and seems to handle whatever I throw at it quite nicely."

Speed

Speed:
"It came pre-loaded with junk programs that slow down the boot time and the operating speed."
_
"Lightning fast shipping, as for the computer Seems to be pretty good computer no major complaints, pretty dang fast Computer"
_
"I do not know what controller is used in this laptop or which hard drive, but it is almost twice as fast as the Acer 3.5 yr old laptop that died and it replaced, still I expected better scores as the sata 3 with sata 3 hard 7200 rpms are a little over twice as fast - wish I knew what laptop drives would be faster..- minor problem most laptops have slow hard drives keyboard is not backlit, this is not really a problem, except the function keys are horrible."

Windows

Windows:
"Only problem encountered was upgrading to windows 10."
_
"I hate Windows 8!"
_
"Unfortunately IE is embedded into Windows and therefore cannot be uninstalled installed on Windows 8 and above."
_
"Windows 8.1 is still missing the Start Menu but apps like Classic Shell and a few others will bring that Start button look back until MS gets off their heinie and updates it."
_
"It seems stable, but I'm disappointed I cannot downgrade to Windows 7 pro as many of the drivers on this laptop are not available in Windows 7."
_
"While I have learned this system rather quickly and it runs fine, mostly, I still would not recommend Windows 8.1 to anyone based on principle alone."
_
"As it is not a touchscreen, and I hate Windows 8 as well, Google Classic Shell and you are all set."
_
"To be completely honest its not Amazon fault but rather my own.1st of all, Windows 8 is nothing less than horror."
_
"I have not specifically timed, but I suspect 3 hours at best when used constantly with multiple windows open."
_
"I spent the first several hours setting it up to work like Windows 7 minus the much more efficient Start menu of past OS's."
