Summary: Laptop works good. Only problem is with the Beat Audio. You will have suttering sound, popping sound and all the issue with sound if you use Beat Audio driver with this laptop. So, the first thing you need to do is uninstall the Beat Audio driver and use the original Intel HD sound driver.
Summary: Pros: Backlit keyboard great; lightweight; looks great; doesn't get hot; handles games well (upgraded graphics card); fast overall; spell check Cons: Track-pad sometimes not responsive, same with keys (only occasionally) I'm very happy with it, and recommend it to light gamers (medium settings on games) students and workers, and the everyday user! I definitely recommend a mouse, though.
Summary: I purchased a custom build of the ENVY 15z and upon arrival I promptly replaced the factory HAD with my own SAD and this laptop is FAST. About 5 seconds to desktop from standby and all applications and file search/write is very snappy. I am in love with this laptop so far.
Summary: I bought this laptop back in December, and ever since I have had so many problems with it. First, I had to install 81 updates in which 30 or so of them failed. And still to this day I don't have an option to retry them. HP will also send me notifications saying that drivers need to be updated. Most of them also don't work or will completely freak the laptop out and give me continuous error messages.
Summary: I work from home and go to school online, so an up to date computer is essential when you want to avoid platform compatibility issues. This computer has all the bells and whistles and then some. It is 15 inches across and 17 inches corner to corner so it is bigger than my older 15 inch. This is actually not a good thing for me, because I feel that less is more, but with the added space, I get a full keyboard with a numeric keypad, so bonus!
Summary: The computer screen is great. Set up was easy. Took my wireless network with ease. Did not like that my CD had to be external. I utilize a lot of discs and save pictures to them. but it was easy to work. The keyboard I hate. the keys all feel stuck. You have to hit them hard to even make them work. It is making my work slow and inaccurate. Contacting support to see if it is my computer or if I need to change computers.
