I bought this computer/ tablet because it seems a good idea. It was more expensive and heavier than a regular laptop. The computer arrived and works fine. However,when I detach the tablet from the base it does not work, I could not turn it on. To find the customer tech service on the web was not easy too. They want to sell a service contract and this is not the point. At least the tech service that I final reach was a very nice person that took care of my problem. I have to send it back for repair less than a week after I received. I will have to wait another week to see if it will work or not.

While typing on the keyboard &/or, using the mouse, the screen would "flip" automatically from screen to screen.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by bob1234567 this units cursor quits working or disappears
the main problem with this unit is that the cursor disappears or will not move at times. I have to shut down to get it back. this is the second computer and has the same problem. Also the design of the top makes it almost impossible to use on my lap! the back side when open cuts in to my legs unless I keep them spread wider than the bottom of the top! fix the cursor and design and this would be a 5 star unit.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by NoUserName could be great
love battery life, fast, love the battery life, love concept. HATE the touchpad. I own 2 of these models. Both have the latest drivers, updates, etc. Touchpad intermittently stops responding. Have to wait a while, reboot, or remove tablet from keyboard and reattach for it to start working again. Bluetooth mouse does similar things. Touchscreen never looses contact. Do your research, this is known problem by other users on the internet. Even guy behing the customer service desk at Best Buy knew of the issues with these models. GET WITH IT HP. Correct these problems and you have a winner.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bailey0308 great buy
Just bought this product 2 weeks ago for school and personal use. It does exactly what it says it would do and the intel5 processor is excellent for speed! This is my second hp computer and I love the brand! So far so good HP!

I purchased the split to replace a Pavilion 6500 that was having "issues"; which I guess is normal for anything over 5 years old still running Vista. Definitely a smaller footprint and lighter weight, and the 13.5" display is sharp enough not to strain my old eyes too much; but the split functionality is not as useful as I had thought it might be. Without Swype, the virtual keyboard is pretty cumbersome for anything more than a text-sized message; so I end up taking the whole thing with me if I need to do any work. Two USB ports is not nearly enough these days, so plan on buying a hub. I had issues with the power supply intermittently failing, and the HDMI output just going blank for a few seconds for no apparent reason. I was also planning to upgrade the RAM from 4 to 8 Gb, but discovered that you can't. Still working those out. I can't blame HP for Windows 8, but I'm not a fan. If you don't set up your profile to remain constantly connected to Microsoft, you can't utilize the store to download apps. All in all, though, a pretty good laptop.
