Review: HP Envy 17 3D (Early 2012)

Notebookcheck
20 February 2012
  • Summary: Elegant entertainment machine. HP has just updated its premium notebook lineup by reintroducing the 15.6-inch Envy 15 in an all-new design, and the 17.3-inch Envy 17 has been given the same makeover.
  • Pros: Attractive design, High overall performance, Good display, Excellent sound quality, Comparatively thin and lightweight, Good selection of ports, The new design is very appealing. A combination of good overall performance and excellent workmanship makes the Envy 17 3D a great entertainment machine.
  • Cons: Practically never silent, GPU barely sufficient for stereoscopic 3D gaming, Lid prone to smudges, Although the Radeon HD 7690M does a good job within the temperature constraints of this comparatively slim notebook, a speedier GPU would have been preferable for stereoscopic 3D gaming.

HP Envy 17 3D 17-2000ee

ITP.net
14 September 2011
  • Summary: Verdict: Given its positioning its disappointing that the Envy lacks gaming grunt. If gaming isn’t a concern however, you’ll find the Envy 17 a capable app machine and an immersive 3D entertainer.
  • Pros: Application workhorse, manages to create immersive 3D experiences, comfortable to work on.
  • Cons: Extremely large and heavy, not a gaming machine.

HP Envy 17 3D - Owner's envy, or owner's pride?

thinkdigit.com
7 June 2011
  • Excerpt: It's been awhile since we've had a large, powerful notebook - the kind that make our arms and backs ache just looking at them. And no - our hearts don't often jump in glee at the thought of a powerful (read gaming) configuration, for no gaming notebook, irrespective of its price, can hold its own...

Review: HP Envy 17 3D

Wired
26 January 2011
  • Excerpt: First they came for our 2-D televisions. Now they want our laptops. If you thought 3-D was a tough sell for the living room, now imagine if you had to lug the technology around with you.
  • Pros: Three dimensions, people! Can you dig it? Backlit keyboard. Impressive “Beats” audio system. Dazzling, super-bright display. Includes Adobe Photoshop and Elements combo.
  • Cons: 3-D experience is gimmicky, weak and already boring. Loud, grinding fan drowns out those awesome speakers when laptop heats up. There’s just no excuse for a computer this big to have arrow keys this pathetically small.

SlashGear
1 January 2011
  • Conclusion: The display is bright, the display is sharp, and the display is HUGE. This is a desktop replacement without a doubt, and you'll never go back to a tower again if this monster is slid under your nose (that's a bit presumptuous, I know you love building your own machines and enclosures and all that,...

HP Envy 17 3D Review

LAPTOP Magazine
22 December 2010
  • Summary: The Envy 17 3D is not cheap, but for $1,649 you get a premium design, quad-core power, solid gaming performance, Blu-ray, and a bright 1080p display. The 3D experience isn't as robust or as seamless as laptops powered by Nvidia's 3D Vision technology, but we like that the TriDef 3D software can...

  • Summary: With the original price of Rs. 89,990, HP are now offering the Envy 17 for a reduced price of Rs. 69,990 throughout India. This offer started recently and will be applicable for the next couple of months. This is good pricing for a 17.3-inch multimedia notebook that’s capable of playing 3D Blu-rays.

HP Envy 17 3D

Pocket Lint
18 April 2011
  • Conclusion: The HP Envy 17 3D is a premium machine, with flaws. There are notebooks with slightly better 3D that can't match it for style or build quality. Apart from potential heat issues and a laughable battery life there's little to complain about apart from the price, and there are few alternatives that...
  • Pros: For a 17-inch monster laptop, the Envy 17 3D manages to look sleek and slim; it's packed with performance plus great sound and vision.
  • Cons: The battery life is exceptionally low and while the 3D works well for movies the support for 3D gaming is less impressive (it looks good but slows the frame rate)
