Boot

Boot:
"Sit one directly on top of the other and almost EVERY time it will fail to boot, more precisely it will not come on, i. e., the Power light will not even glow."
_
"I can't stand Windows, so I've swapped it out for Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS 64 bit (due to the small size of the internal storage wouldn't recommend dual boot!"
_
"Well that ruined the netbook, it wouldn't boot without virtual memory issues, and I had to pay HP $45 to get the restore software."
_
"I've backed up the hard drive 3 ways:* Using Macrium Reflect to create a whole disk image* Using Windows Backup to create a whole disk image* Using HP Recovery Manager to create a bootable recovery USB thumb driveThen, using Macrium Reflect, I deleted the recovery partition, and ran its Fix Windows Boot Problems procedure."
_
"Ran into tons of problems just trying to boot it up."
_
"If I have to offer one criticism, it's that it takes longer than I would expect to boot, though that may be more due to Windows still updating than anything else."
_
"So I found this, saw it was a non-moving part hard drive (eMMC 32gb) and that it boots fast and has great battery life."
_
"Boots up fast, Easy to use except touch pad is either too sensitive or not sensitive enough."
_
"The ability to do work offline and use actual programs on a laptop that boots up quickly is very nice."
_
"Disclaimer: I'm reviewing the linux installation (not dual boot - only linux).On paper, this is the perfect laptop to install linux on."
_
"Other than that,it boots up fast and performs great."

Capacity

Capacity:
"Perhaps the biggest drawback is the small capacity eMMC."
_
"First problem, the storage capacity is AWFUL!"
_
"The only downside is the storage capacity, I probably uninstalled some programs I shouldnt have."
_
"My only complaint is after less than 2 weeks its already memory capacity warnings popping up due to the laptop coming with a lot of pre-installed apps that I deleted because she will never use need most of them."
_
"This is nice and lovely but too small hard disk capacity"
_
"Having said that, it probably has the capacity to do a lot more stuff but for that information, I recommend reading other reviews from those more in the know."
_
"Storage space capacity is rather small, otherwise a great device."
_
"If you are a compulsive downloader of new programs apps you could very easily clutter this machine up with it's limited storage capacity and in re-reading other reviews, I have to say that many of the people who were running into issues were likely not taking this machine's abilities into account, not using good virus software, or simply lacked an understanding of WIndows 8 overall."
_
"The specifications on this laptop tell you that you're not going to be running graphics heavy software or be able to have a lot of capacity for running many things at once."

Connection

Connection:
"OS is awful - even more so than usual from M$ - it took me half an hour to delete a network connection with all the extraneous windows popping up at inconvenient moments (I guess compliments of crappy trackpad) due to incorrect password - and I've been using PCs since MSDOS days and administer a network of PCs (thank God I didn't update them to W8) and MACs."
_
"Connecting to different networks gets frustrating because the side bar disappears and you have to keep starting over."
_
"Despite calling HP, my ISP, and doing diagnostics, it won't connect--I have no problem with my desktop and tablet connecting to my wifi."
_
"Quite dissapointed--if I were able to connect and STAY connected to the internet, this would have been a decent laptop for my needs."
_
"The actual computer I received had network connection problems almost immediately."
_
"The graphics are very clear and connection speed is fast."
_
"So, I used a 1 TB external hard drive that I keep connected to my computer when running it, which does allow to be able to use it."
_
"I have some connection issues, but overall it's a great first starter laptop."
_
"Although the Widi program is not present (and cannot be installed because of hardware limitations) to my surprise the HP Stream was able to connect to my TV successfully."
_
"Quite dissapointed--if I were able to connect and STAY connected to the internet, this would have been a decent laptop for my needs."

Cost

Cost:
"I was nervous about buying this because I thought any laptop that cost $200 was bound to be a little bit terrible, but I was extremely pleasantly surprised."
_
"I'm in Venezuela and send it back to HP guarantee isn't viable for time and costs for me."
_
"I grew up way before the computer age, and never once had to use them for work..I hate returning anything because the cost never will compensate me for my time!"
_
"It is also perfect to let my little boy play around with because frankly, even if he ruined it, it costs so little that I wouldn't be devastated."
_
"Well with the cost, it works great as a Mobil work device."
_
"labor $65.00Material $164.99Tax $19.51Total $ 249.5050% off - - Cost to customer (your cost) $124.75The above offer is the best I can do and is my final offer."

Expensive:
"Microsoft systems have been expensive and not working well for years now, but now they have it right."
_
"It's very light, performs all the basic laptop functions very well, has excellent battery life, and I've had fewer weird software issues with it than I've had with some of my more expensive computers."
_
"I have a tablet that cost 3 times as much and takes forever to load so money wise the more expensive is not always the best."
_
"It's not so expensive that I'm going to cry if it gets stolen or damaged."
_
"Definitely get this computer, ignore the nay sayers, this machine is amazing, nice feeling, cute, the color is amazing and it works way better than even some more expensive computers."
_
"Overall, this laptop is amazing for the price but if you're used to expensive looking laptops with top of the line specs and 13-15 screens this laptop may not be for you as the screen size is taking awhile for me to get used too."
_
"My daughter its very please with her new hp laptop she loves the color everything even the video & camera its really good because it captures everything very clearly im very please also with the price cause in other places its more expensive so im very happy with the purchased...!"
_
"if you looking for something not expensive and works great this si the machine for you."

Installation

Installation:
"Only that it will give you an error message that it failed installation."
_
"I had no problem installing the free 1 year Office 365."
_
"It's probably the worst screen I've ever seen on a laptop (I had a sony vaio and an acer aspire previously) and the storage is definitely not great but installing an sd card will resolve that problem, I downloaded utorrent and itunes and I now have 10.9 GB available of 21.3 GB..."
_
"I've even installed a game via a flash drive from the HP to my old laptop (sony) and there was no problem installing AND running the program."
_
"Sound can be improved but it's no hassle removing the hp software at all and installing classic shell."
_
"new condition and fast onethere was an issue with the office 365 installation and this is not so easy to use"
_
"Plus a fresh, new installation of the latest, best Windows."
_
"Upgrading to windows 10 did free up another 2gb, but I had to attach a flash drive to do it because the upgrade needs 10gb available, so I'd recommend doing the upgrade before installing Office."
_
"Good luck with installing MS office."
_
"I had no problems installing Avast, Chrome, and Steam on the device."

Packaging

Packaging:
"I spent a lot of time talking to customer care at Microsoft office to ONLY be told because the license came with the laptop as a package deal, they would offer nothing to correct this problem."
_
"Otherwise, it's a nice package with a usable, but not impressive display, good performance, and great battery life."
_
"The item was well package and my daughter love this item."
_
"She is happy, although she could have used it straight out of the package."
_
"Great for surfing web, light weight, packaged well, arrived quickly, the only thing is sometimes the mouse sticks a bit, but not bad."
_
"I was really impressed with the speed in which I got the computer and was impressed how well it was packaged."
_
"Arrived on time and packaged well."

Partition

Partition:
"The hard drive is 32 gb, but much of it consists of hidden files and I'm guessing a restore partition, leaving only 21 gb that you can see."
_
"Well guess what that option will not work in Windows 8.1 I guess I will have to move the recovery to a flash drive and recover the hidden partition to have any workable space."
_
"Windows and the hidden recovery partition takes up 2 3 of the drive Of course I expected to just add a 32 GB micro SD card as expansion memory."
_
"I presume the missing ~5GB comprise Recovery Partition files."
_
"I've backed up the hard drive 3 ways:* Using Macrium Reflect to create a whole disk image* Using Windows Backup to create a whole disk image* Using HP Recovery Manager to create a bootable recovery USB thumb driveThen, using Macrium Reflect, I deleted the recovery partition, and ran its Fix Windows Boot Problems procedure."
_
"Not having an easy way to get that 7GB Recovery Partition back is a mistake on HP's part."
_
"Although Microsoft claims the newer versions of Windows have a smaller footprints, we found there was not much storage availableThis are some of the areas where the 32GB was consumed: 8GB Recovery Partition (you are no longer able to delete this partition) 9GB Windows directory 5.7GB pagefile."
_
"As for this one's hard drive, it has about 17 gigs free (Win 8.1, Bing, MS Office (which I'm not going to activate, going to use a free office suite instead), a recovery partition, and a handful of apps), which also is not a problem for me since most of what I'll be doing will be via external drives."
_
"The main partition is 14 GBytes, and a good portion of that is occupied by Windows."
_
"While this save considerable space, it does mean that if those files get corrupted for whatever reason, the recovery partition won't be any help, because there are no viable duplicate copies to restore from."

Port

Port:
"It does have some drawbacks, for example only two USB ports, but this can be fixed by buying a multiple USB adapter, they are pretty cheap on amazon."
_
"Slows down when accessing my 1 TB external drive (this could be because it's a 3.0 in a 2.0 port; I have a 32 gig mini-usb in the 3.0 port), which means waiting until the loading is done before I access the files."
_
"Had to get first one replaced because one USB port didn't workAmazon was amazing on replacingCouldn't be happier for traveling, checking email, watching movies, keeping finances in orderCheaper than a tablet"
_
"The hdmi port is another frustration."
_
"The only thing missing is a CD port."
_
"I only mention this because I hate 90-degree connectors that go to rear-mounted ports, or straight power connectors that go to side-mounted ports, and so many laptops goon this up."
_
"My USB ports have all worked well."
_
"The sound is great, camera is clear and not pixelated or sluggish, and it has a micro SD port to transfer photos and videos from your cell phone or GoPro camera."
_
"This is a replacement for my 10 inch tablet that was used for on the go, minor photo organizing editing while travelling, with something that has multiple USB ports, at least one USB 3.0, decent size keyboard and full size HDMI out."
_
"Number of USB ports is good."
_
"The HDMI port works great - used it to watch Netflix hooked up to our television."

Power:

_
"The screen doesn't show well when you first power on the machine, but after a brief adjustment period, it's OK."
_
"I use this in college so mainly for power points, WiFi, and word and it is great for all of those things."
_
"It's cute and small, but has no power or potential."
_
"Its a good ish laptop but I ran this thing like a Razer blade proIt crashed, blue screened and deleted Windows I dont know why but Im now running Linux and I hate itSo if you are going to tun this thing like an alienware or a Razer Blade pro bewareI liked it while it was still runningIt has skype already installed and the power in this thing is unbelievableThis is good for running word and photoshop and other things but not for a lot of gaming."
_
"Good processing power."
_
"Second, this is not a power computer: it only has 2GB of RAM, and its processor is pretty underwhelming."

Setting

Setting:
"(I'm not a techie, so kindly forgive the lay terms); Hidden icons at both edges of screen (such as clock and settings icons) unnecessarily follow cursor movement, constantly pulling edges of screen toward the screen's center."
_
"The touchpad is a little too touchy and sometimes will zoom out of a webpage if I touch it wrong but its a quick fix on the settings icon."
_
"No matter what settings are used the popups are horrible."
_
"The only complaint I have is that the touch pad (mouse) is on the highest sensitivity setting and still refuses to click on things half of the time."
_
"Anyway, after about an hour or two of setting up all the stuff for the new gadget, I was so frustrated with it because the 's' key on the keyboard started not working properly."
_
"The screen is alright, it is matte and is pretty dim at its highest setting."
_
"You *must* drop some of the graphics settings (video) to get consistently good frame rates for Minecraft 1.8 and higher."

_
"I was able to do everything in a couple of hours, even setting up the OneDrive storage to make my laptop files available to this machine."
_
"The most I have seen from the battery meter is 5 hours when I am using it, tested that tonight, went ahead and plugged in after 5, and I am using the recommended settings from HP.-FN (function) keys are backward."

_
"I just don't like the built in mouse, too hard to click fast."
_
"But it is so terribly slow that it is almost impossible to use."
_
"With all the BIG programs, it just doesn't perform well."
