This computer perfectly fitted my needs. Strong CPU, lots of RAM, and a decently powerful graphics card. The Intel 3630QM has 4 cores, each one hyper-threaded, giving a total of 8 logical cores. 12 GB of RAM is more than I've ever had, and I'm looking forward to the day where it will all be utilized. So far though, I'm happy that I'm using 2-4 GB of ram, while my OS caches on the rest. The Intel HD 4000 has also been nice to use, and is faster than my last GPU which was getting quite old, the Nvidia 8600 GT. The 1080p screen is also enjoyable.

My laptop came with windows 8, which I am not a big fan of. However, my main concern wasn't really with windows 8, but with the immense amount of bloatware HP put on top of the OS. I would highly recommend a clean re-install, or else manually removing all the unnecessary HP programs. The OS might be a bit tricky to reinstall however, since this computer uses UEFI instead of BIOS. I am not reviewing the OS that came with the machine, only the machine itself, although I just wanted to mention that the HP software bundled with windows 8 was frustrating to deal with.

The build quality of this laptop is average. The bottom of my palm occasionally grazes the track pad when typing, causing the curser to fly around. The keyboard, though being a nicely spaced island keyboard, seems a little cheap and flimsy. Back lit keyboard looks great, as well as the hot-keys at the top of the keyboard. Bonus points for putting the CTRL key as the leftmost key instead of FN. Unfortunately my keyboard was a little loose from the frame, and this was extremely disappointing.

I was looking for a powerful laptop with a good price and a big screen and I found it!

was very hard to decide it without any review but I took the decision and I am not disappointed

the best:

-Screen has the maximum resolution
- Sound is amazing I never heard before something like that from a laptop it has more power than a tv OMG!!!
- Design is beautiful the logo HP has a blue light and the laptop is covered by an excellent material.
- Nice frontal camera
- About software is perfect> Intel 7> 2.4ghz 1tb hard drive 12gb ram is extremely fast!!!

Well my favorite part is the Sound you don't need more speakers for this laptop its enough with the incredible quality that it has I extremely recommend this laptop.!!!

THERE IS JUST ONE THING THAT I DONT LOVE YET, and its the Windows 8 System Operative. this is my firs time trying to use it and its hard its so confuse, by the way you have the option to use it in desktop (and enjoy the new windows interface xD)but when you go to your files for example documents I don't know how to open a new file like in windows 7. so if you are in downloads and you want to paste something to your documents you have to copy the file and return back to the downloads file to paste. with the windows 7 you can open a multiple files, maybe in the SO 8 too but I don't know how yet...

i extremely recommend a mouse for this OS when you are on the internet and you are using you mouse pad to move sometimes it bring you another window from your desktop. example: if you left the picture section open and you are on the internet it bring you back to watch your pictures or another stuff that u left open and you said what !!!? is very annoying...

well that's why I am learning how to use the new OS if you know already how to manage this OS it wont be a problem for you.

I hope that this review help you in your decision.

After searching for over 2 weeks for a laptop that had a nice big screen and back light keyboard I found this laptop. As a software engineer I wanted a pc that had a quad processor, large hard drive and lots of memory.

This pc is so sweet. I just had it for approx 2 weeks but absolutely love it. I wanted to get a laptop that could replace my desktop if it go down for any reason.

I am very pleased with this laptop and windows 8 work great with the track pad. Touch screen is not required. Use the touch pad as you would use your android or iphone screen. It is awesome.

I hooked up to my wireless network in minutes and have yet to have a problem. The connection is solid.

I orginally wanted a laptop with Windows 7, but Windows 8 rock once you learn how to use it. I also downloaded a free start bar menu online which is the same as Windows 7. So I can do everything that I did before with the operating system.

This laptop came to replace my old 5 year old HP. It is super fast and has an easy to upgrade ram config (4 & 8gb so you would only need 1 chip to max out the ram). The system is very fast except for a bit of heat and slowness from the hard drive which I plan to upgrade to a SSD. For the PRICE and PRODUCT you can't go wrong. (Though I might suggest if you purchase one doing a fresh system restore to make sure everything is settled correctly)

This computer is the most bang for buck you can get. I shopped a lot to choose it, The computer geeks that helped set up my network raved about it. Unfortunately, I have neuropathy in my fingers and they are numb. This Envy had an ultra sensitive touch pad that I just couldn't handle. For those who want a very sensitive touchpad, or only use a mouse ; this is a very fast, great graphics, loaded computer. The vendor, Beach Audio is among the best vendors I have ever dealt with. Have no fear in buying from them. They gave me a full refund promptly and cheerfully. Their kindness and understanding gets them 5 stars.
