Now that I've had this computer for a few months, I'd like to modify my review. This computer has randomly shut down about 10 times now, a dozen blue screens of death related to USB 3. I'm sure these are either hardware or driver related and rescind my recommendation for this machine.

This is a very fast laptop. I'm a computer programmer that needs a very fast machine for pretty much everything I do, and this laptop is awesome.
This machine as it is listed has great upgraded options, like the best resolution screen, blu-ray, extra battery, and extra RAM, however, the hard drive it comes with is very slow. This laptop does have a 2nd hard drive bay and I bought the 225$ 128GB Kingston SSD, made it my primary drive, then made the original drive my secondary drive. To do this was no small task, but here's the steps to take:
Warning: I have no idea if this does or does not void your warranty, I can't find a clear answer to that.

1. Order this laptop
2. Order an SSD ($225-$250 for 128GB, or $360-$400 for 160GB)
3. Order a hard drive caddy and cable kit. HP sells it for 91$ after taxes and shipping, but you can get it for 41$ from newmodeus.com. [...]
And by the way HP, I think that it's awful that the laptop didn't come with this in the first place. $41 for just a 3" cable is robbery and the $91 that you charge is two robberies and a beating.
4. If you get a SATA hard drive enclosure, things will be easier because you can connect the drives to the eSata port. Otherwise you will need to install the ssd to the 2nd hard drive bay, do the clone, then switch them so the SSD is in the first bay.

I ordered this for my wife and it arrived on time and build quality was flawless. The keyboard is outstanding and the aluminum case all the way down to the illiminated HP logo is magnificent. This is the first HP laptop I've purchased (I've had 11 in my lifetime inlcuding the 21 inch Dragon Laptop) that has really impressed me. I reviewed many laptops prior to this purchase at the Apple Store and Fry's and found this to be the most well rounded desktop replacement. This machine far outshines the 17 inch MacBook Pro e.g. built in slot loading Blu-ray, Two batteries that you can remove (shame on you Apple), and an outstanding keyboard "with numeric keypad" (shame on you Apple). I highly recommend this device to anyone looking for a desktop replacement.

I did a lot of research before I bought the Envy 17. This laptop is everything I hoped it would be. Very fast on all my apps. I usually run multiple apps and I've never noticed any lag at all. The keyboard is the best I've ever used and the backlighting is awesome. I was a little worried about the touch paid because I read some reviews that were critical of it. I actually like it quite a bit. It's bigger than I'm used to and very responsive. No problems with the buttons at all. The screen is really bright and clear. Movies are beautiful on this box. I use this as more of a desktop replacement so it's ussually plugged in. I can't really speak to the battery perofrmance. I will note that mine came with both a small (6 cell) battery and a bigger (9 cell) battery. Overall, this is the best computer I've ever owned and I love it.

I purchased this machine from Amazon several months ago. At first, it was truly a portable office for me. I'm on the road most of the time and the 1181NR more than met my needs. I easily added a second 750 GB hard drive and upgraded the memory to 8 GB ... both I did myself without issue.

As for the BUT ... the unit has always run warmer than any other laptop I've owned, but it wasn't an issue until about a month ago. At that time it started getting so warm my left hand would go numb (I touch type and rest my wrist/hands on the wrist pad when not actively typing). Ultimately, the unit started shutting itself down from overheating. I would get a message when rebooting telling me it shut down to protect itself. About the same time, the noise from the fan and heat became so great, I contacted HP. That's when the real fun began. Twice, I called and wound up speaking to someone in Asia. When I couldn't understand them, they disconnected me. After 4 calls, I was able to reach someone who arranged to have the unit picked up and repaired. As the unit is still under warranty, everything was done through FedEx at their expense. Unfortunately, instead of their promised turnaround time, it was well over 2 weeks before I got the laptop back. On it's return, it was worse than ever ... temps have been as high as 137 deg F. Even worse, HP left almost 2 GB of testing software (bootleg??) on my desktop. The software is labeled 3Dmk06 and OCCTPT 3.1.0.

At my company, we have historically preferred HP equipment. In my office alone, I have an HP desktop, the above HP laptop, an HP LaserJet AIO, and an HP Color LaserJet. Our corporate server is also an HP machine. I had a similar problem with tech support on one of the printers a long time ago, but never anything like this.
