-Screen: Watching movies/videos on the 1080p screen looks beautiful. Viewing angles are very nice. Colors, as far as I can tell, are accurate. I shied away from the 15" Envy due to many bad reviews about the color problems. Having a 17" screen is very very nice. When doing Java programming, it's so nice to see all your little IDE windows and have enough screen space to code without scrolling.
-Keyboard: My last laptop had a back-lit keyboard, and once you get one, you never go back. It's just too nice, especially when I do onsite tech work and there is little to no light where I'm working. The island style keyboard is very comfortable to type on. Every keystroke feels solid.
-Touchpad: After about 30min of tweaking the Synaptics settings, I got the touchpad to work the way I wanted. Mind you, everybody will be different. The left and right mouse buttons are very easy to use, despite some reviews I read. The double click to disable the touchpad feature, is a nice touch, as I use my G500 to play games.
-Graphics: While I know this is not a gaming powerhouse, I can play Skyrim on High settings without breaking a sweat (literally and figuratively). The laptop stays relatively cool compared to XPS1647.Read more ›
Before I do that I'd like to address the issues of service and the issue of the expensive additional hardware for changing a disc drive or adding a new one brought up by Eric O. I would never have thought to do this without reading his review, but within a minute or two I went to the HP site where I downloaded their parts guide. It clearly states that this part isn't provided and gives a part number. I put the number into Google and found numerous places that sell it for $65. That price is nuts and obnoxious but at the same time they could have made more money by supplying it and adding ten dollars to each computer. I would guess that less than 10% of their users will take advantage of this. But I'm not going to defend the $65-- that's nasty and bad business--but Eric O. should know that he at least got a free $65 for not reading the online manuals and going through all of his stress and wasted time. And as I want to talk about the MacBook Pro, can you put a second drive in it at any price?Read more ›
HP has done an excellent job of mimicking the "Apple experience". The packaging from the box to everything in it was superb. If you replaced the HP logo with an Apple you'd have thought you just opened that latest Macbook Pro. Of course you'd have spent barely HALF as much.
The quality of experience with this product remains high throughout. The look & feel of the laptop itself is top-notch. Even with some best-of-breed specs on this model it remains thing & light, very much following the lead Apple has set in the market. The screen quality is great, thought I wish everyone would STOP following the Apple "shiny is better" mantra and give me a usable matte screen instead (much better for coding and 12-hour sessions at the keyboard). The processor & disk performance are the best you can get for under $2500, and the USB3 drives are so much faster than anything before it that offline backup and storage is no longer a hassle.
There are also a number of features I didn't even realize the laptop had when I purchase it, but have grown to either love, or a least still think they are cool a month later:
* The "super drive", or slot-loading CD drive to use generic terms.Read more ›
