Working with him 6 months.
This laptop broke my heart. If it weren't for a terrible keyboard and trackpad, it might be the perfect laptop of the moment.
I recently needed to upgrade my late-2007 Macbook Pro on which I was running XP a good amount of the time for work. I needed a PC laptop that was going to be my main machine (every day use; grad school + web design and graphics; sometimes 8+ hours/day), and after doing the requisite research I took advantage of a nice web deal on an ENVY 15-j171nr for $779 + warranty and tax. Simply put, keyboard and trackpad aside, this machine was amazing, although I eventually had to send it back.
This machine is FAST. 18 seconds from power on to start screen; 15 seconds(!!) from pressing Enter on the password prompt to having a browser window open and loaded with content. This is due I think not so much to the amazing processor (i7-4700MQ), which is about the fastest consumer processor available at the moment, but rather to the 24G SSD, which I think is pretty much a must-have feature from here on out. The 8GB of ram is plenty; I had tons of windows open typically and never experienced a lag. My unit had a 750GB HD which is plenty big.
The screen is HD, bright and crisp. I didn't need a touchscreen (still think that is a good decision for a Win 8 laptop), so the lack of one didn't bother me, and saved me some $$. Although I'm not a gamer, I wanted a machine with better-than-average graphics, and the NVidia GT 740M did the trick nicely. The screen is fairly glossy, but no more so than others I've seen, and is fully in line with the madness of the moment about glossy screens.Read more ›
The screen is also quite nice, although its a high DPI display meaning there are more pixels in an inch of the display. Windows 8 looks beautiful because it was designed for this but most program's UI look fuzzy since they aren't designed for scaling like that. Its unfortunate because it makes the great screen a bit of a pain to use (but not the fault of the machine).
Unfortunately, HP is trying to rip off the industrial design of Apple and Samsung and they're failing completely. This machine is thick and heavy for one using modern components and missing things like a DVD drive. The fan runs constantly and is quite loud which can make for a painful experience. Other laptops with similar specs can run silently why not this one? Also while the machine seems reasonably solid its made of plastic with a metallic paint that picks up fingerprints (especially on the lid). A matte black or gray might have been much nicer.
HP also seems to have skimped on the components you actually touch. The keyboard isn't great as others have mentioned. Key travel is minimal and it flexes quite a bit. The touch pad on the other hand is absolutely horrible registering phantom clicks or no clicks. In theory a single finger click is the same as a left click but that only appears to be the case on the left half of the touch pad.Read more ›

Got this a few days ago. Firstly its performance really lives up to the specs, I know people complain about the keyboard flex, yes it does flex, but doesn't really bother me. Read morePublished on January 9, 2014 by Mark G.
I purchased the laptop for the specs but am returning it because of the poor build. Windows 8 runs great and was the roadblock I thought I was going to have the largest issue with. Read morePublished on January 4, 2014 by Brooke Hughes
