Summary: Tengo este portátil hace casi dos años. Al comienzo todo bien, pero con el tiempo se han ido presentado problemas. Primero de hardware: las patitas de abajo se salieron y la pantalla se fue soltando de la base, lo que la dejó menos firme. Pero los problemas en realidad no son de hardware. De hecho, es una máquina bastante robusta: en dos oportunidades se me cayó a un piso de baldosa y el daño fue mínimo. Es muy duro y la calidad de la construcción no podría ser mejor.
Summary: I bought two of these for employees at work. I prefer the basic Apple models, which I have, for $1000, and it performs much better, better battery, and integrated disc drive. This model has a separate disc drive, which is not as good, and today the hard drive crashed. Of course it's two months after warranty. I have to have Windows applications due to working with Medicare, but my Apple is much much better, and costs less.
Summary: Taking in count the price I paid for the 13 inch envy I thought I was getting a very good computer, but the truth is it isn't: 1) In what I read about the computer they advertised 15 hours of battery time with the extra battery, you'll hardly get 6, or 2 without the extra battery. 2) The extra battery is really heavy, so its not that "slim" if you want to get extra battery time.
Summary: I bought this laptop after extensive research and a long history laptops by another maker. This is by far the best laptop I have owned. Better build quality, outstanding display, amazing keyboard. Win 7 is a winner too. The slice battery adds significant battery time, but a some weight too - the standard battery is fine for most purposes. Had seen some negative comments about the touchpad, but I've had no problems and find it very responsive and easy to use.
Summary: What is important to me is a gorgeous screen, light weight, and the ability to stream HD in all codec variations. This laptop had the best combination that I could find of those factors. Its closest competitor is the MacBook Pro 13, which is 0.76 pounds heavier and a little bigger. The way I use a laptop those differences matter. The HP feels better to hold when you rotate the screen to read manga, or just leaning back to watch a video outside (very bright screen).
Summary: I'll begin by saying that i've been searching for this laptop at an affordable price since the Envy 13 came out last year. When i finally got one i was impressed by the overall look and packaging that it came in. It was like unboxing a beautiful present which was a phenomenal experience. When i opened the box it came with the computer wrapped in it's own cloth casing. It also came with a 2gb Sd card which was also very useful. The laptop itself is very beautiful.
Summary: Hp envy 13 1030nr review Purchased the envy 13 back in February. I've been very pleased. I travel extensively and use my computer constantly. I run zillions of apps at once so I'm always after a laptop that is small, yet has plenty of power. You certainly do not get the battery life that HP suggests with the machine. I get 2-3 hours with the small battery and 5-7 total with the added battery slice. The plus side is that machine comes with the battery slice.
Summary: My new job allowed me to purchase my own laptop with a $1400 budget....yeah, not a bad start. So I shopped around looking for something as far away from the Lenovo business look I am used to. I am not a Mac person at all but I had to be fair and check out the MacBook and MacBook Pro. All seemed to be the same in price and similar in specs but our company didn't support Mac (yet) and they offered a free download of Microsoft Office Business 2007 and lots of other PC based...
Summary: I really expected more from HP. I read great reviews about this laptop, and most of them were right on the money: A good attempt to a different breed of PCs but falling short on key points. I was close to send it back but i kept it at the end mainly because of the size and weight and also because i needed a sturdy laptop.
