    Thinking about buying this computer. Don't feel like waiting for black friday. Thoughts? I've never owned an HP before and I'm very hesitant. Was going to buy a dell 7000 13.3" or asus zenbook with the older m processor but the specs on this are pretty solid. HD space doesn't bother me, as I use google drive for mostly everything.

    I need to run office suite, some analysis tools, basic crap. Doubt I will game on it.

    Also looking at this.

    you must by the hp just on that alone. lol


    i have no experience with these new comvertibles. honestly, if i was in the market for something like this, i'd be looking at the surface pro 3 (last gen) for the price

    x2 surface pro 3 but the add-on keyboard/touchpad sucks and you'll lose the $50 pen since you can only slide it in a loop on the add-on.

    the yoga is stout but feels cheap. the dotted touchpad will make your finger feel funny.

    i wouldnt buy any pavilion in HPs consumer line. we have an x2 netbook at the office it feels like a $50 android tablet. there is a HUGE difference in quality between consumer and business with HP. even with my consumer branded OMEN, i have one with a bad battery that needed a 2 week turnaround (out of the box). and now my system has 1 of the 3 fans failing (which may require being sent out, ugh). both machines have "onsite" warranty...

    the inspiron appears to be the nicest but get a warranty.

    Thanks for input.

    I'd prefer laptop first then tablet 2nd. Kind of why I'm leaning towards 2 in 1.
