Summary: I am not sure everyone get the same AC adapter....... But according to HP website, this laptop should use 90W AC adapter but the package came with a 120W heavy AC adapter (5.75 x 2.76 x 0.98 in) instead of 90W one (4.92 in x 1.97 in x 1.18 in).... Moreover, the AC adapter is already at low performance after 1 1/2 months of purchase and keep show this message: "The Smart AC adapter connected will power your computer, but potentially at a reduced performance level.
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 bought this computer for my son who will be going to college in the fall. I wanted to buy a computer that will last him all 4 years. This computer has everything he needs and then some. It was a great purchase.
Summary: This is a nice PC, however the display clarity really bad. I am tired of windows and their blurry, hazy and washout text. I don't play games on my PC. I use office. At first I thought I had a bad video card so hp built me another one. Received it 2 weeks later, same fuzzy wash out text.
Summary: I have this laptop for a couple of days and so far everything is good. I read other reviews that said they should have got the backlit keyboard but I ignored that. Now I am actually sorry I did. If I could do it over or return this and get the backlit keyboard I would. I opted for WIn 8 PRO and the better processor with 2GB video. I also loaded this with 16GB RAM. I like the sleekness but feel they could have added a built-in DVD drive.
Summary: I purchased an Envy 15 computer on Black Friday. It was delivered about 3 weeks later. I had major problems with the external CD drive, and customer support was not able to correct the problem, so they said they would issue a call tag and would send me another computer, which was fine. When I received the second computer a couple weeks later, I had the same problem with the external CD drive, along with a couple other issues.
