In case anyone wants to know how the laptop performs… There is a wireless card issue that makes it disconnect every 10 minutes or so that makes it essentially useless so expect to buy a usb wireless card and sacrifice one of the 2 usb ports to it.
Additionally there is some sort of video driver issue between the laptop and Chrome that makes videos in chrome color incorrectly so I’ve switched to Firefox on the laptop. Mine also came with a small chip in the corner of the bezel around the screen that doesn’t seem to affect the performance of the touch screen at all.
There are some reviews online that say they don’t like the keyboard or the touchpad but I have no problems with those.
The laptop does seem to run a bit slower than it should with its specs. I’m curious what other purchasers’ experiences are.
Try downloading the latest AC wireless driver from the HP website. I was having connection issues too until I installed them.
