Great specs for gaming, and it has the proper dual-fan rear exhaust cooling system that keeps up with the heaviest demanding loads on the system (Battlefield 3 64 player MP was tested for 40+ minutes straight without any issues, WASD key area remained cool).
3DMark11 Performance score (out of the box): P2540
3DMark11 Performance score (after tweaks): P2941
The Full HD 1080p screen may not be an IPS panel, but it still has great looking vibrant colors and viewing angles.
Don't be fooled by the "6-cell battery" spec: it has more actual volume than most 8-cell batteries out there. In fact, I did some personal testing with the battery by looping (non-stop) 720p MP4 video constantly over Wireless N at 60% screen brightness and it ended up lasting 4 hours and 17 minutes before asking to be shut off and plugged in. This is really impressive since this is a heavy load test using Wi-Fi, far more stressful than ordinary casual use (the only heavier usage perhaps could be... intensive gaming on battery, but no one does that... I hope).Read more ›
As I recently purchased a Nikon D800E 36.3 MP CMOS FX-Format Digital SLR Camera (Body Only)I knew I needed something a bit faster with more storage options vs. my present VAIO (itself not a stellar laptop). Having first purchased the a HP ENVY 15-3040NR 15.6 Inch Laptop (Black/Silver) which I returned due to the continual quality issues that plague that model, I decided to give this Envy 17 a try.
Purchased from Amazon instead of HP, you lose out with 1 year of additional warranty coverage if that is important and given the track record and numerous complaints against the Envy line of computers, that may (should) be of importance to you unless your comfortable as I am with tearing apart a laptop to replace a fan, MB, etc down the line. Purchase from HP direct for 2 years.
Aesthetically speaking this is a nice laptop, set apart from the usual blend of PC laptops on the market, which, in my opinion is at it's worst in terms of styling in years. The back is a fingerprint magnet which takes a bit of work with a microfiber cloth to remove-even a damp one does not remove them with ease. Overall a good looking laptop but we all know appearance is subjective.
Some would say it resembles an Apple Apple MacBook Pro MD103LL/A 15.4-Inch Laptop (NEWEST VERSION) which I agree with, then add this laptop looks even better vs.Read more ›
I've only had this laptop for a few days, but so far my impressions are mostly positive.
Packaging - 5/5
Nice looking and feeling packaging. My Envy was well secured and protected by the packaging. I like the little suede sleeve that was included, as well as the small zip-up bag for the power brick, both subtly branded.
Build - 5/5
The laptop's build is very nice. The hinges are firm and secure, the aluminum body and the lid do not flex at all, and nothing rattles when you gently shake it. Overall build quality is good.
Design - 4/5
Well, it's pretty obvious with just a glance what laptop computer line this laptop is Envious of. The striking resemblance between the HP Envy and the Macbook Pro line has been commented on plenty of times before, but it's worth saying that it's almost lawsuit worthy. It's really hard to begrudge it anything for copying the design, though, because it's the best design out there. There are a few unique touches, though, and they're actually quite nice. The HP-branded back of the screen is black and a bit less ostentatious than the Pro, and the Beats volume dial on the right side of the Envy is red and chrome and certainly more ostentatious than anything found on the Pro, but I still found it very nice to work with, along with the mute button placed below it. The design of this notebook is pleasing but derivative.
Display - 4/5
The display is nicely built - all glass, side to side, with slight branding (small HP in the bottom middle, "ENVY17" in top right, and "beatsaudio" in top left).Read more ›

Item not as ordered, this is not the laptop described. The laptop described is a hp pavilion not the envy, with a different processor which means a different motherboard. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Prettyeyes
