The HP Envy Is Just "Aiiight" . . . .

S. Thompson "casual reader", Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: First, let me admit that I am a MAC user. That being said, the HP Envy is just alright. The screen and resolution is wonderful and great for watching movies, playing games, and getting work done. Because the screen is not detachable, I don't use the touchscreen that much, but it is nice to have. On the other hand, my 3 year old loves it because he can bring up hours of Daniel Tiger videos. It is a good computer for both personal and work reasons.

Love the touchscreen

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: Used HP laptop for sometime, so thought of replacing it with another. Love the touchscreen. Had seen other reviews with painful mouse control, but thought of trying out. Mouse pad is real pain to work with, I am planning to get a separate mouse. Working on Windows 8 is like hell, looking at installing other OS soon.

Solid

Thom Mitchell, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been a laptop user for a long time and at first glance this is a nice looking laptop - it's definitely not the ugly brick of days gone by. After using it for a few weeks here are my thoughts: Pros - Touchscreen - responsive and works well with Windows 8. Can't imagine using Win8 without a touchscreen.

Disposable laptop

  • Summary: Good laptop but they seem to degrade after about 18 months of use... laptops these days are meant to be disposable.

HP stands for nice HITS and merely PASSABLE

L. M. Fuke, Amazon
12 November 2014
  • Summary: The first impression is breathtaking - this laptop is cosmetically pleasing in brushed aluminum. Its heft was a surprise; it is not only heavy but oddly balanced. This Envy will be a real handful, prone to slipping out of your grasp. I intended to replace a Toshiba Satellite running Win7, so comparisons between the two might be revealing. First off, battery life for the HP Envy is surprisingly brief, less than four hours even with a minimal app load.

Hard Drive not easily upgradeable.

G. S. "G90814", Amazon
3 November 2014
  • Summary: Nice computer for the price, but if you're looking to replace/upgrade the hard drive, it's not all that easy (see link below) RAM and Wireless chip are the only easily accessible components. There's one RAM slot free, so easy enough to add another 4GB chip. You can access hard drive, but it requires a bit of effort. You need to remove both the service door on the bottom, as well as the top/keyboard tray before you can access the drive itself.

  • Summary: The screen quality/resolution is not that great, but maybe I'm spoiled from using a Mac.
