Review HP Envy 17-j110eg Leap Motion Notebook

Notebookcheck
5 December 2013
  • Summary: New ground. HP is the first manufacturer to equip its media-focused flagship with Leap Motion capability and a touchscreen, but is this worth the extra cost of 60 Euros (~$82)? Additionally, the internals of the laptop have been refreshed, including a Full HD touchscreen, an Nvidia GT 750M GPU and an i7-4702MQ CPU.
  • Pros: TouchDisplay, Leap Motion, Good CPU performance, More than enough RAM, Battery life during light work, Speakers, The always-cool chassis thanks to a constantly rotating fan. The TN panel comes with great horizontal viewing angles.
  • Cons: Noisy fan, Battery life under load, Too hot, TFT with a blue tint, A combination of an SSD in slot no. 1 and an HDD in slot no. 2 would be perfect for both performance and mass storage. Also, such a premium laptop with a GT 750 should be equipped with GDDR5 memory.

Review HP Envy 17t-j003 Notebook

Notebookcheck
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Processor-blowhard with flaws. The Envy 17 scores in CPU matters owing to Intel's i7-4700QM quad-core, and it also displays pictures on a matte Full HD screen. But just how well does the laptop fare in our in-depth test report?
  • Pros: Good and matte screen, Decent processor performance, A lot of RAM, Battery runtime in low load, The quad-core processor supplies high computing power. Working with the Envy 17 is really fun. The decent screen is also compelling after it has been calibrated.
  • Cons: Loud fan, Battery soon drained in load, Keyboard yields extremely, Too high temperatures, No SSD, TFT exhibits bluish cast (uncalibrated), A more sensible interface positioning and a higher quality casing are at the top of our wish list. That's followed by an SSD.

Review HP Envy 17-1190eg Notebook

Notebookcheck
16 March 2011
  • Summary: 3D Envy. HP brings in a top notch entertainer with the HP Envy 17. Great design and high end materials, as well as workmanship are only a few points on its long list of features. Another highlight is the utilization of a 3D display in the Envy range.
  • Pros: Design, Material, Workmanship, Keyboard, 3D capable, Performance, Usefull pre-installed software (Photoshop Elements), 3D works perfectly in movies (when they are 3D), Design, workmanship and the keyboard have managed to impress us once again. But the new 3D display also has its advantages.
  • Cons: System noise (fan permanently active), Consumption, Battery Life, Weight (heavy), Price, 3D isn't intuitive in games, A quiet cooling solution, at least during idle operation.

24 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Novos caminhos. A HP é o primeiro fabricante em equipar seu carro chefe focado em mídia com capacidade Leap Motion e uma tela táctil, mas vale a pena o custo extra de 60 Euros (~$82)? Adicionalmente, os componentes internos do portátil foram atualizados, incluindo uma tela táctil Full HD, uma GPU Nvidia GT 750M GPU e uma GPU i7-4702MQ CPU.

Notebookcheck.fr
6 December 2013
  • Excerpt: De nouvelles bases. HP est le tout premier fabricant à intégrer à son produit phare multimédia des fonctionnalités Leap Motion conjointement avec un écran tactile. Cela vaut-il les 60 euros supplémentaires ? Il faut rappeler que d'autres composants ont été aussi mis à jour : écran tactile Full HD, carte graphique Nvidia GT 750M et processeur Intel Core i7 4702MQ.
