Rated 5 out of 5 by Val from Virginia from I am happy with my new toy I love this computer. It is much lighter in weight than the one I had. However, I miss having the number keys on the right hand side of the keyboard. I am enjoying working with this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jo 2 characters too short from Brand new and needs repair after 2 days Had to be sent back, touch screen does not work. Still waiting for an update. Not paying for the repairs so either it's fixed and sent back to me or I need a full refund (which I can simply dispute on my Platinum Amex card as all purchases are covered.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nick Ch from not worth the cost It works ok. I got it because I bought a nice 17in with a ryzen 7 from the HP site that I love. The 14 inch I bought runs hot compared to my other 2 HP laptops. I called customer service and they helped me update the bios but it seems the same. I don't think it was worth the extra money. I had one for less than $300 with a ryzen 3 that runs cool and pretty much just as functional. I wanted the ryzen 7 because my 17in HP laptop runs great but this 14 inch I bought really doesn't seem to perform the same as that one. Also, every once in a while, there is clicking in the hard drive, although everything tests fine. I've only had it 2 weeks. Honestly, I probably wont buy another HP from the site. I'm disappointed. I guess I got lucky with the 17in one. I'll just order a cheaper one from Amazon
