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.

It does not include Windows Office, if that's what you're asking...separate purchase. I was recently able to upgrade my original to the 2013 versions of Office Home/Student, which is what I need. You can also get the Win 365 that's all cloud-based.

I can't say specifically about Quickbooks, but in Desktop mode, all the programs I've had installed (Office, CyberLink, etc), the touch screen works. Depending on the program, it may not be easy. For example, tapping just the right icon on the Word ribbon may be a chore if you don't have the screen sized right.

I can't say yes or no to that. Only a BB exec could, but they usually brag about anything being a BB exclusive. I can tell you that I do my corporations laptop purchases and have seen this same design on other machines, but can't say whether they called it Midnight Black.

Yes. HP does not make a dock specifically designed for this laptop, but several manufacturers make a USB docking station that will work with this and most other laptops; Targus, Kennisington, etc.

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.

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.

This is not actually a tablet. Its a touchscreen laptop. So yes, you do have access to a full internet browser where Facebook can be accessed. But sadly, there is no official Facebook App in the Windows App Store yet. (but there are other variations from 3rd party developers.)

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.

Yes. It comes in handy and is very useful for a bluetooth mouse, keyboard, and speakers because it saves you a usb port (and an ugly dongle hanging from the usb port).
