Yes and no. It uses a 32GB mSSD card to "boost performance" but still has a platter-driven hard disk spinning at 5400RPM. Don't expect SSD like performance.

No, but if you have another laptop or desktop at home, you can right click and share its optical drive on your network. Then mount network drive to this PC. To mount network drive, hit the WIN Key + D to get desktop, then go to your documents and navigate to my computer. From there on its the same as Win7.

Unfortunately, this PC does not have an optical drive. You would add software through an external optical drive or by downloading it from the internet.

No. You won't find a CD/DVD drive on an Ultrabook. It adds weight and drains the battery. "Ultrabook" is trying to emulate the tablet experience where all your media is downloaded. For the times you need a CD\DVD drive, you'll have to buy a USB plug in drive. I've had mine a couple months and have yet to use it.

The Start page on Windows 8 comes with the Netflix app. Or it can be downloaded (free) from the Win8 Apps site.

It would be better to check with your auto cad maker. They make the rules on what their product requires because it depends on what auto cad you're using, the version, and any add-ons you use. For myself, if I ran a good auto cad program, I'd get something bigger, with an i7 processor and a lot more RAM.

This PC will run any software that has system requirements equal to or less than the specifications of this PC. I recommend contacting the software manufacturer of any software you intend to use in order to determine the system requirements for their software.

Yes, but you have to completely disassemble the chassis. It's not easy, but it is doable.

There is no estimate on an HP Notebook battery life, since this is dependent on battery type, flash or hard drive usage, environmental conditions, CPU usage, etc. You can carry a replacement battery pack fully charged for long trips.

Here are some suggestions to conserve battery power:

-Put the Notebook in Hibernate Mode or Shutdown whenever you want to save your current session, and will not be using the computer for several hours or more.
-If you are using a PC Card that has an external connection, such as a modem or network card, remove it when you are not using it. Some PC cards use significant power even while they are inactive

Yes. In fact it comes with Microsoft Office trial installed. I can't answer about Quickbooks, you'd have to check Quickbooks website because it will depend on what version of Quickbooks you're taking about.

What is the question? There's no 'plastic' housing on my HP...in fact, I think there was a comment about the base being a solid piece of aluminum.

I have the Envy Touch-Screen laptop and can't share that opinion. I find it to be a solid well build machine. I do corporate laptop purchasing so I've seen a lot of good and bad machines and this is one of the better ones.
