Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Processing power is so much better than my old laptop, will happily run updates, downloads and internet searches simultaneously. Good looking, good value for money.
Bad points:
Windows 8 is annoying but I'll get the hang of it! I had a pop-up message from HP on first use saying that the warranty (advertised as 1 year) has expired already so need to check this out.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent looking machine, lovely screen, good size and pretty good battery life. Works right out of the box, although if you are not used to Win 8.1 it takes some time to get used to.
Bad points:
It's already a little slow - nothing major, just takes time to boot. There is a lot of bloatware pre-installed that has to be removed if you want to increase performance (I suggest disabling some start up programs).
Keyboard is pretty poor and could be better - you end up pressing other keys by accident due to the profile and layout.

The Pavilion 15-p078sa comes pre-installed with the expressive Windows 8 operating system. Packed full of intuitive apps, it gives you the information that’s important to you as soon as you need it.

There are improvements coming to Windows 8 with the launch of the free 8.1 update. These include the re-introduction of the Start button, new Live Tile sizes and adjustable four-way multitasking windows along with developments to the lock screen, search and more.
