Summary: To start, I was expecting a lot. The Cons:The build seems to be normal which I would expect from a laptop half the price. The Beats Audio is disappointing, without it though the audio would be crap. With it, the sound is average at best, again not what I was expecting.

Summary: I bought this laptop through best buy, but I've talked to many other users who've bought this same laptop via different websites. We all have very similar problems. The mouse pad is just awful and unpredictable. There are times when I use it with no problems, but thats rare.
Summary: nice laptop,but no leap motion device.need to buy extra,so like every other laptop,even i will not use it,still it is not there,bit slow when starting and reboot, sound great and clear,plenty of ram so easy to multitask,all in all very nice machine,battery life average,could be better,for money you...

Summary: What a joke, when I got this laptop the right mouse button did not work at all (software issue that I resolved by altering registry values) and the touchpad itself is a total piece of garbage. Probably why the previous owner got rid of it!
Summary: I went back and forth trying to decide which Envy 15 to buy. I ended up with the 15z - j100 that featured the A10 processor, 8 gigs of RAM, 1TB hard drive, and the backlit keyboard as upgrades.
Summary: The keyboard takes some getting used to. My wife doesn't want to use it. The keys are difficult for her to push. I have more trouble with the mouse. It is hard to depress and left click is only in one little corner. Try before you buy to see if it's right for you.
Summary: Sadly, HP did not provide a way to disable the Intel 4000 graphics on this laptop. If you want to run Linux on a laptop it is probably best to pass on this one... unless you are one of the few people who can actually get bumblebee to work.
Summary: *** this review is for the very similar 15-j171nr*** This laptop broke my heart. If it weren't for a terrible keyboard and trackpad, it might be the perfect laptop of the moment. I recently needed to upgrade my late-2007 Macbook Pro on which I was running XP a good amount of the time for work.
