beats laptop

southerngirl, Amazon
3 January 2014
  • Summary: Was a bit skeptical about purchasing a used laptop at first but I really like it. Works excellent, in great condition. Only downfall is that I find it heats up a bit fast, other than that I have not had any issues, I am not a techy person so this laptop so far is doing all that I need it to...

User Review

  • Pros: Fast Cheap Powerful Pretty This laptop is pretty much a PC version of a MacBook Pro without the insane price tag.
  • Cons: Win 8, the only reason I knocked an egg off, but it's just that bad.

Probably the best choice for a student

  • Summary: I bought this in Best Buy for my daughter, after researching a lot about what is currently available. Most current ultrabooks/thin-and-light 13-14" laptops have several very serious problems compared to ENVY m4.

Mad Love for my Machine

Sweet 'n Sour Kandy, Amazon

  • Summary: I can't really review on a technical point of view because I'll just make an a$$ of myself, so here is the point of view from just your average girl that bought a notebook: I turn it on and it boots up fast. I can open tons of pages and nothing slows it down.

makes you feel happy

  • Pros: good quality material. free space for a second ssd.
  • Cons: wireless keep disconnecting even after driver updates. w8 doesn't recognize all drivers even installing all drivers from hp website. Usb ports are side by side, close to each other so if you are using a bulky flash drive you can not use the other port. Just one usb 2.0 and one usb 3.0 ports. beat...

WOW now I understand why it's called and ENVY!!

Ron C., Newegg

  • Summary: I have always been a big fan of HP, and they have taken a lot of well deserved heat lately, but whoever designed this must be an artist, because you just want to put it on a pedestal and admire it.
  • Pros: thin, fast and loaded with features. BEAUTIFUL looking laptop....I can't wait for my next business trip to show it off. The setup went without a hitch. Gig ethernet major plus for me. Fast out of hibernate, crystal clear display...watching Youtube HD video was amazing. This has to be the most stu...
  • Cons: It's TOO beautiful! I've worked with some conservative companies that would frown on such a purchase...it gives the allure of flashy! NO DVD drive, that caught me by surprise but then again I would rather have thin than a DVD drive that would not be used often. Not obvious which side to open, I k...

Beautiful

Sara S., Newegg

  • Summary: When I first got it, the touchpad wasn't working. An HP representative sat on the phone with me for an hour to resolve it and was very helpful.
  • Pros: Great style. This computer is light and looks amazing. I get comments on it all the time. I find the keyboard very easy to type on as well.
  • Cons: It takes too long to wake up...not sure if this is specific to my computer. Otherwise a fast machine. Also, I initially liked the volume control on the side, but I'm always accidentally taking it off mute (which I need on) when I pick it up or if I put it on my lap. The only other downside is tha...

Great value, but for the price, some things are missing

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: Great little laptop - i7 processor, 8GB RAM, 1 TB hard drive. Runs well, performs great. That being said, for the price, there's some things missing: no Bluetooth and no discrete graphics. If you're going to spend this much, the Samsung Series 7 Chronos is the better value.

nice little ultrabook

peter c., Newegg
30 December 2012
  • Summary: Great laptop for what it is, nice 14" screen with a higher res than most 15" laptops, the ssd is really snappy (was expecting a lower quality ssd) processor is also very nice for a mobile one. Also the battery life is quite good compared to other laptops with similar specs.
  • Pros: SSD is very fast, screen is nice and bright with a high res for a 14", fast cpu, good battery life (I get about 6-7 hours doing basic stuff, 5-5.5 doing programming work or watching videos) Pretty light weight. Little things like the power adapter breaking down into the brick and 2 cables makes i...
  • Cons: Power cable where it connects to the dc jack is way too long, it's like 2 inches long, should really only be an inch or so. Mouse pad tends to hold onto grease and gets 'sticky' after a while. Not a fan of beats audio, I've found that it likes to auto adjust volume (through headphones) which thro...

So far, pretty good laptop!

Nicholas D., Newegg
28 December 2012
  • Summary: I am a very advanced user of computers and a lot of people told me stay away from the HP's but to be honest, it's the only one that had my major concerns filled: 1. Backlit keyboard for night time car use 2. Small laptop with high resolutions (1600 x 900) 3. long battery life 4. solid state drive
  • Pros: This laptop was purchased for night time use in a car. The only machine I have found with a Backlit keyboard, High Res 14" monitor (which means 1600x900) resolution. This is much better than the smaller resolution monitors especially on a 14" laptop. You can actually have 2 windows side by side a...
  • Cons: Only 2 USB ports. 1 is USB 2 and 1 is USB3. I now use a bluetooth mouse so that fixed my 1 USB port being tied up. Other con is that it's only a 128 GB drive. But more than enough room for what i'm using it for. The battery lasts around 3-5 hrs with maximum things open. (pretty good though if you...
