Ratings and reviews

Rated 3 out of5 by fromIt's okay...I have this HP touchscreen laptop which I have had for 8 months now, Windows 8.1 already preloaded, and it's alright. The issue that I have the most is that I am having a hard time getting into the Microsoft Windows store.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromWindows8.1 cripples my productivityWindows 8.1 "apps" don't seem to be able to run in windows (they just take the full screen) and don't seem to be able to covert to run in traditional Windows style. I cannot seem to save pdf files in a Windows Explorer directory. I cannot drag an email message to a Windows Explorer directory. I cannot run Corel Draw or Photopaint or VB6. I cannot install some of my old software. I cannot put a mail shortcut on a normal Windows screen. When I click on a link in an email, it opens full screen - I cannot get it to open in a window or a separate browser. It cannot run my Epson scanner. It will not play most You Tube or other flash videos. I had no success installing software from the Windows App store. None of these problems come with useful error messages or explanations - they just don't work. Not everything fails - my electronic CAD and mechanical CAD software seems to work fine. I have not tried my software development IDEs or my laser printer yet because it takes days of messing around trying to get each of my old programs working in a reasonable workflow. I only bought Windows 8.1 because Vista will no longer even boot (something got corrupted in Vista and cannot be recovered although the disk itself still works fine) I am trying hard to be productive with this new operating system, but it looks like I will have to buy Windows 7 and try to install it. It has been a monumentally frustrating and extremely discouraging experience.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromA Year LaterI've been using it in my laptop for a year and I'm just now exploring the Start screen. It really is a less cluttered way to use Windows. In fact, I'm trying to figure out how not to use the traditional desktop. My old desktop was filled with icons that bothered me. It looked messy. So I now have the main features I use on the Start screen. The App version of IE is more like Chrome, where you can type in anything to search or go to a specific URL.I upgraded my old desktop computer to 8.1 and am using it as a cloud. The only thing that bothers me about Windows is that there are too many different ways to perform many of the same functions. This makes the OS less streamlined. However, I do like the faster boot up.Really, people should understand Microsoft is trying to emulate our smart phone experience by designing Windows 8 this way. I suppose many users are going to be resistant to change. Try playing around with the Start screen, that's what I suggest.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromGreat InterfaceThe design facilitates fast and easy access to information. Very smooth and the ability to move between 8.1 and the classic windows is handy. Had some restart/sleep hanging issues but after a system refresh and a BIOS update the issue seems resolved.
