Best touch and hybrid OS I have ever seen or used.

The almost immediate improvement in productivity realized by the ability to manipulate documents as if they were actually on paper is simply amazing. Adding in the ability to run older Windows applications which, even though they don't support touch natively allow input via touch is remarkable. Too much FUD about Windows 8, especially when they released the 8.1 update. Love this OS and especially love the way it works on hybrid and full touch systems. Better than Windows 10 on a Surface Pro in my personal opinion.

I don't know what all the. . .

fuss is about Windows 8. It's simply a charm, well to a usual event. . . Any computer is better than nothing when you're short on dough to purchase. As usual HP has surpassed what I can be thankful for. You just have to get used to it. . . Garsh, it won't bite I'm sure! Amen!

windows 8.1 review

Finally a tutorial for the novice and slower learners. A lot of companies tend to make there help section to complicated assuming that because it is easy for them that it is easy for every one but the hp getting started tutorial was explained very easily and in terms that are not to technical The one thing I would like to see is a vocabulary section so that when technical terms arise we would know what they mean or can just look them up.

Windows Eight Sucks!

I have had this computer over as year now and every time I've tried to use it all I get is frustrated. WHY would you sell a touchscreen program with a desktop PC? It makes no sense. I feel like I have to learn to use the computer all over again. Just doing simple things I did before (like troubleshoot the sound) are twice as many steps and it doesn't even fix the problem. Somebody owes me $800 and an apology! If I could give this a zero I would.

HP Envy Touch Screen Review

Its going to take a little longer to learn all of the functions, but its well worth the time. IT is a very user friendly machine. One thing I cant figure out is how to keep the screen unlocked at all times?

unsure at 63

I feel that after having the old versions for so long that this will take me forever and a day to be even close to the bottom with it. I know with practice it will or might become easier, but for now it's just downright hard to navigate. Maybe some of us need to hold classes. {bright idea)

Have they started a twelve step program for 8.1

I've never used such a messy program as 8.1. I've used many different operating systems since the 60's and all of them started to make sense when I played with them a little bit. Not so for 8.1. It is slower than windows 7. I plan to return my hp laptop with 8.1. I work better with 7,
