Excerpt: I finally updated to current technology to speedup my ability to complete College Home work. HP has amazed me with there performance and processing speed. The only thing I don't like is not having the ability to push a key to disable the touch pad. But I did find a setting to disable it when using a wireless mouse and keyboard. The setup process was easy with very little effort and time. Over all I can say I'm more than happy with the HP Pavilion laptop.
Excerpt: Was easy toi set up!I'm having trouble setting up wireless printer?also hard to save pitures or share them ?I guess I'll figure it out it's sending me more e mail tips about windows 8??The bar is on bottom which is also new to me!I will read manual again so I can use it!I also thought it was a touch screen which it is not?
Summary: I am an IT administrator so i looked over the specs of several companies and compared these specs with price. I went with HP since I got double the hard drive, and a i7 core processor over the i5 for the same price. This time I decided to go for a touch screen hoping it would be worth the extra price. I didn't catch that the laptop had a biometric reader (fingerprint reader) and this is pretty cool.
Excerpt: The HP Pavilion Laptop is quite lightweight and easily portable, working well off of WiFi. What is sorely needed, however, is a users manual for Windows 8.1. Had to download it off the Internet after a Google search. PC mfg. should at least provide the URL for the manual, if it is not practical to provide a copy of the 77-page manual with the computer.
Summary: This is my 2nd HP ENVY, purchased because (1) I really liked the 1st one (ENVY 17-3D), and (2) the 1st one was beginning to show some over-heating problems. This new one (ENVY 17T) has great features (including biometric fingerpad and 4 USB-3.0 ports), and is packaged nicely (although I miss the illuminated logo on the lid). And HP's customer-service is excellent!
