Bought this computer a month ago and it seems to be pretty quick. I'm sure speed will become more apparent once I get all of the Windows 10 helpful nanny's successfully shut off. Also was surprised the "mouse" buttons on the touch pad are on top, instead of where they've been for the past unteen years. Old dog new trick, fingers instead of thumbs. Windows 10 will take some getting used to, but the HP computer is very nice. If you can get it with Windows 7 Pro, do it. 10 seems sluggish and burdened. I call it "The Millennial Falcon".
