The HP Envy Touch 4 is nearly perfect for me, especially after the minor tweaks I have made, and plan on making. It would be perfect if it had an IPS screen. Like most TFT screens, you have to angle it right to get the most contrast. However, the screen looks better out of the box than the Acer M5. 4GB of ram is a little light for my Photoshop needs, but I can add more ram with the removal of the bottom casing. The first and easiest tweak involved a little angelic program called Classic Shell, which not only boots straight to the Windows 8 Desktop, but also adds a Windows 7 style Start Button! I have NO use for the Start Screen or Screen Formerly Known as Metro. I didn't when I beta-tested it, and I still don't. Metro is a shameless marketing ploy to get on the app bandwagon. Silly Microsoft! Apps are for kids!! With Classic Shell, you get all the familiarity of Windows 7, with all the speed of Windows 8.
The backlit keyboard is hard to find among the plethora of laptops out there, and this keyboard is perfect for me. I had considered an Asus Q500 laptop once, but the grey backlit keys were a turn-off. My last laptop was a 17-inch with a 10-key number pad, and I never used it as much as I thought I would. This keyboard is just the write size for the writing I do.Read more ›
- Strong price point for a touchscreen enabled laptop
- backlit keyboard a tremendous benefit
- good to excellent battery life
- touchpad improved over previous HP Envy iterations, though still not perfect
- touchscreen is responsive and accepts frame-to-screen swiping
- the audio speakers by BEATS are outstanding!
- Solid hinge design keeps screen where you put it.
- Within 12-18 months many bargain ultrabooks will have same features at lower prices.
- Indicator light for backlit keyboard (and wireless on/off) is ALWAYS on and is very bright
- Windows 8 plus HP touchpad a recipe for disaster from accidental palm movements during typing
- *The most god-awful Power button I've ever encountered*
- Heat vents akwardly placed.
As of mid 2013, the 1115dx is an above average laptop with a terrific price point. It sports features such as a touchscreen and backlit keyboard that are usually reserved for laptops in price range that is $200-$300 higher (or more). Having said that, it does have some faults that really take the shine off it's otherwise impressive feature list. The first, and to me most annoying, is the Power on/off button. It is placed above the keyboard and to the left of the outstanding "Beats" audio speakers. This placement means it had to be recessed so that it is not activated when you close the lid. It is very narrow in design, and takes quite a bit of force to press down on, much more than any other laptop I've worked with in over 20 years. Most people will need to use the very tip of their finger; an uncomfortable sensation to say the least. Even ladies with small hands will find this difficult at times and gentlemen with larger fingers will be frustrated daily with how difficult it is .Read more ›
All in all, I am very pleased with this purchase. windows 8 was built for touch, and using the touch features of this laptop make work as well as media consumption significantly more enjoyable and efficient.
