The refurb model has an unsettling amount of 1-star reviews on amazon. What's the non-refurb model number??

Came here to share my pain and give a heads up.
I don't know if this has been fixed, you have to google it by yourself but as of my x360 (i7-5500) it is true. This laptop is a huge expense and here is why.

I bought x360 around 3 years ago and I like this laptop.
I like everything about it except one thing.
It's HIGHLY UNRELIABLE and becomes a liability in a year or so.

Around 18 months after I purchased x360 it stopped charging.
If it is hooked up to AC it works. But when it's disconnected it drains battery and never refills again. So basically once you discharged it it's a no go. Dead. Muerto. Does not turn on ever again.
I was abroad in Thailand and my warranty had expired. Nevertheless I contacted Thai HP CS and they honored HP warranty due to my vacation and no other means of internet communication except this laptop. Could not be happier. Kudos to all Thai HP CS this was a real gods gift. This was in June 2016.

However yesterday (17 months after) x360 failed again with the same symptoms.
I googled this matter and it appears to be there are NUMEROUS people with this problem and repair cost $600+ from HP. HP knows about this problem but they keep installing flawed electronics regardless of the warranty. So basically they are waiting for the warranty to expire and charging people $600+ for repair with the same electronics. EVERY YEAR. BTW they give a joke 90 days warranty for the replaced motherboard.

The average time of "no trouble time" with the new motherboard is around 12-18 months. But anyway there are people who had just 2 months of use time before this issue hit them.

DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF GREAT LOOKING GARBAGE unless you want to spend over half a G every year!

Don't take my word for it! Google it! "x360 charging problem"

I will post this in several x360 spectre threads just to give people a heads up. Sorry about it if that concerns you.

The i7-6500U is not enough to smoothly drive a 4k screen. Don't buy this.

Is this for all x360 models or just the 15?
