Rated 3 out of 5 by JScott1129 from Just ok I wanted a basic laptop just for email and web browsing. I would have rated this 5 stars, except it has locked up solid 3 times due to overheating within a few days. I had to set the fan in BIOS to be on all the time, which has helped so far, but shouldn't have to, since Fan doesn't kick on soon enough to cool it down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chas111 from Bickering Chimp I think people are buying computer wrong one. The above comment doesn't right. HP is the best one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Videografix from Bare-bones, no frills laptop - does the job. We needed a straight-forward , no-frills laptop for a specific application, and the G9 meets those criteria. The maximum internal screen resolution is only 1366x768, which is not great, but it will drive a 1920x1080 external display. The display is large and easy to see, and it does have a USB-C port - which is useful. Overall, it performs as advertised.

Is this a touch screen? Also, can it fold to be used as a tablet?

Asked by: Doree
Hello, Doree. Thanks for your question. This HP 255 15.6 inch G9 Notebook does not have a touchscreen. It also cannot be used as a tablet. We advise looking at the HP Pavilion x360, HP Envy x360, HP Spectre x360, Elite x360, or ProBook x360 laptops. They have the capability to flip into four modes: laptop, tent, presentation, and tablet. They also have touchscreen displays.
