pixels, New Zealand Travelling fan of music

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
sleek design.
portable enough (not too heavy for airplane hand-luggage and not so big that I have to have a madonna lap like in the Pieta sculpture...google it)
has a 14" screen (which is rarer but the perfect size for me)
Fast start-up.( love this processor on trubo boost)
free 8.1 windows upgrade makes it better,(windows 8 is annoying so upgrade it)
Touch screen is very responsive, good enough for drawing with finger or great with the right stylus. (hard to keep clean though haha)
speakers don't sound terrible for a laptop.
webcam isn't amazing quality but still very good for a laptop.

I'm just in love with it. the perfect laptop for my requirements at an reasonable price. It wasn't my first choice but I'm glad it turned out this way.
Bad points:
Could do with some more RAM installed. but that's not hard.
Dissapointing Keyboard, no backlit ability and the "shift" key on the left side isn't long like most keyboards instead its the size of a normal letter key, (I don't like it but you might not care) .
sometimes the mouspad/trackpad thinks you are clicking instead of just hovering while moving the cursor but this might be fixable I just havn't figured it out yet.

Laptop Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

With expressive touch control and powerful Intel® i5 processing, the HP Pavilion TouchSmart 14-n056sa 14” Laptop is perfect for everyday computing.

The future of Windows
Optimised for touch, Windows 8 puts your favourite apps and programmes at your finger tips.

Simply touch a programme tile to open it and move around using taps, swipes and pinches. It only takes a moment to pick up and is already second nature if you use a smartphone or tablet.

The Start is built around Live Tiles. These programme icons display real time information from all your favourite apps including social networking, emails, news and sports directly on the home screen. You don’t even have to open the programme to receive important info and notifications.

There are improvements coming too with the launch of the free Windows 8.1 update. These include the reintroduction of the Start button, new tile size options on the Start screen and adjustable four-way multitasking windows along developments to search, the lock screen and much more.

Dualist processing
The TouchSmart 14 is powered by a 4th generation Intel® Core™ i5-4200U Processor. The everyday clock speed of 1.6 GHz provides energy efficient everyday processing though this can rise to an impressive 2.7 GHz with TurboBoost technology, making the TouchSmart 14 capable of difficult tasks such as media editing.

Multitasking is aided by 4 GB of DDR3 RAM. This lets you work on multiple tasks at once, so whether you like to keep on top of your social network while you work or need multiple instances of office software open simultaneously, you can rely on the TouchSmart 14.

Spacious storage
Storage is provided by a 500 GB hard drive and is easily big enough for your files, photos, software and media.

Backing-up these important files is easy thanks to the conveniently placed twin USB 3.0 ports. With far faster data-transfer rates than previous iterations, USB 3.0 makes light work of transferring even the biggest files to external storage.

There’s also an SD card reader that provides fast data transfer between your camera, phone or media memory cards.

Bright view
Whatever you choose to view, you can expect a vivid, crisp picture courtesy of the BrightView HD screen. The screen is gesture compatible too, making it the perfect accompaniment to Windows 8’s bright, intuitive interface.

Convenient functionality
Unlike many new computers, the TouchSmart 14 comes with an integrated disk drive. From burning CDs and data disks to watching films while on the move, reading and writing disk media is simple.

HP Connected
Exclusive to the brand is HP Connected Music, an embedded music service that provides a year’s free access to the entire Universal Music catalogue, along with chances to win live music prizes and meet and greet events.

Experience fast, uncompromised touchscreen computing with the HP Pavilion TouchSmart 14-n056sa 14” Laptop.
