Summary: Everything about this laptop is flawless!! The speed is through the roof!!! Sleek design, durable, built to last. I LOVE MY HP ENVY! I added the Backlit Keyboard. I HIGHLY recommend getting the backlit keyboard, you'll be glad you did. Probably my favorite feature so far is the FingerPrint Reader...Very Cool. If you're looking for something that's built for the long haul and is Sharp by Design. Do not Wait to get this laptop!! Worth Every Penny.
Summary: One really nice feature of this laptop is 2 hard drive bays so you can pop a SSD second drive to boot from 20 times faster but there no hardware to hook it up that an HP 50 dollar plus shipping for what should of been included and disappointed that the 15 inch as better choices of video cardS AND 17 CPUS

The mSSD flash drive caused me a little confusion, but seems to be doing its job marvelously now that I understand it is NOT a separate drive. So far, the best computer I've owned.
Summary: Pros: 1. Price: This is a great laptop for the price. I shopped around for a while and checked all the other brands and compared the chip with the CPU benchmark comparison site. 2. Speed: It was the fastest chip for the price ALL around. That being said, what does that translate to for functionality? ITS BLAZING FAST! Practically no lag time. I did not load any CPU hungry games to really test it out yet nor do I plan to. 3.
