Summary: The first time I turned on the computer, it gave me some hard disk errors. So I run the chkdsk utility and it seems to have fixed the problem. What i was expecting, since the seller said the computer was in perfect condition, was simply that, that the computer was in perfect condition.
Summary: I bought this laptop in thanksgiving deal for 629+tax. I was happy with the speed but wifi never work on this. Spent hrs to configure internet but no luck. Camera quality very poor for this price.
Summary: I was looking at all the pc options for inexpensive laptops with backlit keyboards, and this was one of them. The newer HP Envies either have really big screens, or are overpriced. I am writing this review after 4 days of owning this, and I am going to send it back.
Poor trackpad and screen ruin an otherwise excellent notebook

Summary: The Envy 14 has a lot going for it. It's a great size, has a backlit keyboard that's a pleasure to type on, and is built very well. Further, HP has released a BIOS update to address the issue of 3D applications and games not working properly with AMD's automatic graphic switching.
Summary: Powerful laptop and good for most users, I have had the laptop for about a week and will be returning this laptop next week. It has the power, but the screen quality is so-so. I had a MB pro and the screen was better as well as my desktop monitor.
Decent Computer, not likely to deliver in the "envy" department

Summary: I've had my Envy 14 for half a year now with the exact same specs as this product. This is what I though of it after 6 months of use: Pros: 1. One of the most minimalistically stylish PCs in the market currently (even if they did borrow some design choices from another computer developer) 2.
Summary: The computer itself is all right- not as fast as I would have thought (I am used to using Macs). My biggest issue is the complete lack of accessories. I need a keyboard cover, and they don't sell the EU version (if your enter key looks like an L, you have the EU version.
Summary: So i had this laptop for two weeks, because I didn't want to buy a new macbook pro since many college students have one. So i gave mine to my bro and Brought the envy 15 i5. ANYWAYS....it runs good, good screen color... sucks is...
Summary: Pros: Sandy Bridge Processor and discrete GPU Build Quality Track Pad Interface Red Backlit Keyboard. Cost Cons: Screen resolution very low Screen colors very washed out Screen dim Contrast Low Did I mention bad screen?
