Hey guys!
Recently I had been to HP store, and I really like 2 laptop's over there.
HP AF001AX and HP 15-ac101TU
I basically needed a laptop for gaming.
Could you guys please help me in suggesting which laptop should I purchase.
Your help would really mean so much to me.

HP for me has one huge issue.

HP lost me over their walking on the warranty. Imagine having spent 8+ hours on a support call that didn't fix it then they killed the machine in their repair system only to put me off for 6 months. At that point the message was clear. My last HP.

While they make some good looking machines, their warranty failed and can you accept having a machine with a defect right from the box and then broken by their service?

Keep shopping.

I'm thankful for your concern, but it does not answer the question to the query. The question is which laptop was the best.

Because of HP's warranty issues neither is a good choice.

This is not a company I have any trust in. I used to buy a lot of HP test gear, then computers but something changed and it's a company I will not buy from as there was no apology or replacement given.

My advice is to keep shopping other makes.

As a student HP could be devasting.

I'm a bit lucky in my company supplied this, then when this happened they supplied a spare. I'm sure a lot of HP's just work but when there's an issue, their handling of the issue left me with a broken laptop. Worse than when I sent it in.

I'm not the only finding HP to have walked away on warranty.

So you were in the HP store, asked them about gaming laptops (most laptops aren't gaming laptops, so they won't have many), they recommended these two and you forgot to ask them if the most expensive happened to be the best and in what respects the cheaper one was inferior?

Can you provide a link to the specification of these 2 laptops, with the RAM, disk and graphics you consider to buy?

Your not going to game with either of these machines.
Unless your talking about card games.

If you want to game increase your budget and keep shopping.

Typing Issue

I don't know much about HP AF001AX, but HP 15-ac101TU can be very slow, mostly when you are typing. You need to type slowly; otherwise when you type 10 words about 5 will show. The customer service is horrible; don't waste your time calling them for support.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
