Is the laptop slow when browsing? And can I watch YouTube videos in HD quality with this PC?
I am looking to purchase this pc as it seems to my needs as well as my budget.

I was wondering if this pc could handle these tasks well? also can i watch hd videos on youtube and netflix with this pc???

Simply put, NO.
I purchased two, manually tuned them and stripped out the dead weight in the same manner I deploy servers and they just crashed a little less but struggled just as much.
The video card has only 1GB of shared RAM, which was the top dog performance in the year 2002.
A Blackberry is better at playing HD.
This laptop is slow at everything except crashing and losing your unsaved work.
It has the lowest Windows Experience Index of 4.1 and struggles to run two programs.
Asking HP Tech Support is worse and they won't need a telephone to hear your screams.
I bought two of these HP's and refunded both in 72 hours, do yourself a favor and spend the extra on a better Toshiba with the same good parts but none of the bad, sold at Walmart for:
Yes but, I suggest you buy the the additional 4GBs of RAM for proper speed, like I did with mime. It make a big difference in speed & stops buffering. Netflix is installed & if you have never used Windows 8, I suggest you download the proper Windows Updates. Then the free Windows 8.1 will be offered on the Microsoft Windows App Store. I did & it's great.
This is a very good deal for what you are looking to use it for, however be prepared for the initial updates that seem to take forever. Once they are complete you will enjoy watching your videos without a problem.
No i would not recommend this for your application . You will be waiting for ever to download Youtube videos and Hd movies.
You can watch Youtube videos in HD on this computer.
