Summary: I absolutely love my laptop! Track pad can be a bit finicky, but I solved that with a wireless mouse. I use the touch screen frequently, LOVE it. I use it for business (graphic design) and pleasure (including gaming) and I have only had minor hiccups mainly with the track pad.
Summary: I am a graduate student who was looking for an affordable laptop with a good processor and RAM, and the HP ENVY is an excellent computer for the price. I must say though, after using the computer for a few days, the control zone touchpad became glitchy and was going all over the place.
