Top customer reviews

HP's own UK site has no references to video outlets for this model at all in the text (not even mentioning the VGA outlet, which is of course present) but the photos there, too, all show an HDMI port next to the VGA one, with no mention that it's not present in models currently on sale.
That might be a deal-breaker for some people. But for those who don't mind paying a premium price for high-quality build, a robust but stylish case, an excellent keyboard even by HP standards, and a superbly clear (if glossy) display, and who aren't deterred by the poor battery life (though HP and this site are up-front about that particular issue) this is still a machine worth considering.
Positives: Quality, size, display, responsiveness
Negatives: battery life could be improved. I get about 2.5 hours in average usage.
