Not THAT bad!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: HP Pavilion 11-e115nr Touchsmart 11.6" Touch Screen AMD Elite Quad-Core A6-1450 / 4GB DDR3 / 320GB HD / Webcam & Microphone / Windows 8.1 / Energy Star (Personal Computers)
I just replaced my 2008 white Macbook for this. Going from OSX to Windows 8 touchscreen was a totally new experience. Windows 8 was pretty interesting for a first-timer like me, but not actually hard. I just needed to get the hang of it some more.
Anyway, this laptop is just fine for everyday use, such as e-mail, internet, etc. It looks well-built, the display is vivid and the touchscreen is quite responsive (more so with your finger, than with a stylus). Even the smaller keyboard is still manageable - and I have large hands! As far as the processor goes, it isn't the fastest, but it still does its job. Though I must say, the mouse button is a bit noisy when pressed.
Most of the time, I'm online via Chrome and/or using iTunes. So far, no issues with quality or usability. So if you just need a simple laptop for the basics, then I would recommend this. But if high-performance is what you're looking for, I'd say look for something else. This little machine is definitely worth the benefit of the doubt before we judge it too harshly, too quickly.
