I am enjoying my laptop pretty well. I switched from Mac back to PC and have noticed a few inferior details (annoyngness of Norton, certain things not pre-loaded up, etc). I don't use the Leap Motion at all, so I don't really care about that aspect. Also, the speakers, although good, are not as loud as I wish. I love that it has a numeric keypad and the backlit keyboard is great for when it's dark. Otherwise, the screen resolution is great and the weight is just what I wanted. I guess I would have been fine with a 15" monitor, but I'm not heartbroken over it.
I do however find Windows 8 to be useless and/or pretty annoying, the screen flips a lot when the cursor hovers in the top left corner. I'm going to have to turn that feature off.
UPDATE 4/29/15: I've had it for a little over a year - the AC adaptor outlet is "weird" and doesn't stay in place right anymore, I have to set it "just so" to charge. Battery life has TANKED and NOW after week of hearing a slight "rattle" I discovered the side of the laptop has split open and the hinge that holds the moniter up is broken! It has only left my house TWICE and NEVER been dropped. I paid $1000 for this! MAJOR regret. HP customer service cares SO little that they won't service it unless I extend the warrenty. They don't stand behind their brand, products, or care about the customers. I'm sorry- laptops should NOT be falling apart at 14 months! This is the LAST HP product I will EVER buy.
