I must have to say, WHAT A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!!! I have always been a big fan of HP products, if not for their performances than their reliability or style, however when they made this product to rival others on the market for a new design and concept of small laptops and notebooks, they should have thought alot harder. I thought i was upgrading from my HP G72 notebook, which even though was huge in size, 17inch to carry around for work, it was one of the best laptops i have owned and still do from time to time.
As far as my review goes on the HP 14-n000sa, at the start like a little child i was really excited. A beautifully finished, small compact laptop with a really responsive touchscreen, allowing me the best use of the Windows 8 features. However as the honeymoon period started to wear off i discovered that not everything was brilliant. The good quality build at first sight was not perfect on the touchpad, requiring many clicks. the sound quality was not great, deeming it normal, however i may have been used to the beats audio HP provide on other specs.The small i3 processor notebook did not last more than a mere 2.5-3 hours, which is not great when you need to type reports and docs which require hours of thinking. Yes it has good graphics for a machine its size, but it ran slow and lethargic, sometimes giving up on me for a few seconds. Further more, just weeks into the purchase, the laptop started to heat up and smell from the charging port, where it was exchanged for another one. Now after 2 days of using the new one and installing a few files and software, it worked even more slower, enabling me to restore windows on it not once or twice but 3 times, each which lasted a good 4-5 hours. Finally after having enough and swallowing my pride, i went out and purchased the HP pavillion 15-f010dx, which is currently helping me write this review and keeping me sane. At best i would call the HP 14-n000sa a budget laptop for those really struggling. My advice, spend abit extra and get a laptop worthy of giving you your moneys worth.
I have never been more disappointed in a laptop. I am a junior in college studying English so having a laptop handy to whip up the mountains of essays and other writing related tasks I have is important. I decided to go with the Pavilion because I have seen several rave reviews on the product. It is pretty expensive, but I have heard that it's durability is excellent so I decided to go for it.
I have to say that my review is not anywhere near excellent in terms of this product. From the get-go this laptop (which I am actually using right this second) feels very poor in quality. I seriously shudder every time I have to haul it to classes and back because I am afraid it will break because it is very lightweight and feels weak. The other large problem I have faced is that the laptop is constantly making me restart the computer and perform updates and other things of the sort. This is something that every laptop has to do, but once I was working on my final (20 page) essay for the term and it performed one of these updates and completely reset my entire computer. I lost EVERYTHING. Granted I was only on page 8 of my essay, I still had a meltdown. Luckily my professor was understanding and gave me a little extra time. All I know is that this laptop is not for a college student of any type because it is constantly performing maintenance tasks and feels chintzy.
