If this medium processor core notebook PC internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the HP Pavilion 14-ab166us[plb_3010778_price] (6GB and cheaper), the DELL Latitude 14 E5450[plb_2794147_price] (8GB and cheaper), or the Lenovo X250[plb_2928644_price] (8GB and cheaper).

It has driverhardware problems
The more recent Bios update and the latest drivers from HP plus the latest drivers from Intel for Bluetooth and Wifi. Then disable power management on the Bluetooth and Wifi will make Windows 8.1 run
Let's just say I gave up on Windows 7
There are no cons
Only downside is the screen has a reflective finish so if you are on in a well lit room you can sometimes see yourself. Not the biggest concern but more of a warning to those that don't like this
