i should be more active on here now that I have my laptop back. I have been using my smaller Acer 11 inch portable laptop for the last 6 months. Yep, it took 6 months for HP to fixa problem covered under my warranty. I am pissed that the damn thing didn"t get updated like it was supposed to windows 10, but with this one still on 8, I am reminded that I am so much more familiar with this system.
