Summary: Ordered Specs: i7 with GTX 850m 16gb Ram 1tb hybrid drive Backlit keyboard Full HD monitor Blu-ray writer 48wh battery Intel 802.11ac 2x2 Overall it is a great performing machine that has a nice look. I am disappointed with a small list of things. 1. The previous Envy 17” laptops had dual hard drive capabilities. This one does not and it is a huge pain to get to the internals as there is not any access hatches on the bottom.
Summary: This computer was easy to set up and get going. The new 8.1 is easy to use and I like it a lot. I got the 16 g memory, 1T hard drive, Blue ray writer, full 1080 HD, Back lit keyboard, Bluetooth, and the upgraded battery. This computer has a great picture, it is really clear on the blue ray movies. The downloads and updates are very fast. There is NO light on the HP logo which I really liked on my other HP, but not a deal breaker.
Summary: The computer took over 3 weeks to arrive and came from China. The touch feature works great! There is security on everything, which is understandable, however it is unwieldy when using the computer and applications frequently. I ordered a larger screen which works well. I have not had the time to completely set up the computer, but it works great so far. The laptop is large and is heavier than I expected. The battery is small and does not last very long.
Summary: I could not be happier with my new laptop. it's great and it is everything I could have asked for. I had my special built and the extras are awesome. What was truely amazing was the price. I am very happy and will be recommending HP to my family and friends. Thank you HP for a such a great experience, and such a great deal.
Summary: Machine is extremely fast, and overall very pleasing. Graphics are good (HP displays are always top notch). Battery life & weight are both very good. The terrible disappointment is the boring old keyboard. It repeats characters, seemingly at random, even when identical pressure is used. This is extremely distracting for a touch typist, and can make entering passwords a challenge. I would have rated this computer much higher if it wasn't such a pain to type on.
Summary: I purchased this version after sending back a brand new 17t quad that overheated on me within a day of having it. It's a customized version just like the last one I had (that I returned). So far, the laptop is ok. I've noticed its already pretty warm on the left vent after having it powered on for 15 minutes or so. I'm sad the keyboard is not silver like in the picture (they are black). The backlit keys are always a plus. I will post another review later on as an update.
Summary: I have had this notebook for a few days. I purchased it primarily to give me mobile processing for my photographic work when I am on the road. I loaded my various software programs without incident. Connection to the Internet via my in home WiFi seemed to work seamlessly. Unfortunately that did not last and there was a hiccup today when only one website out of the many I tried would function.
