The HP Envy 15 is probably the highest quality laptop I've ever purchased (and I have at least 5 under my belt.) Build quality is on par with MBPs, beautiful aluminum and magnesium build, relatively light weight, the screen has gorgeous clarity despite having a noticeable shift in reds towards orange. Naturally the computer is very fast, the 3040NR model with the i7 and 8gb of ram is suited for speed. 4 cores, 8 threads, enough ram to accomplish the tasks of 4 average computers. Gaming is solid on the dedicated graphics. I recommend anybody looking to optimize battery life go into BIOS, and change the graphics over from dynamic to fixed. Then select which GPU you would like while using the OS. Put my operating time on battery up a couple hours from around 3 before the change to near 5 hours and 30 minutes after.

I see a lot of one-two line reviews here, with people giving the envy top marks. Almost makes me think that I got a bad unit. 1. AMD graphics card is the laptops biggest weakness. The switching between the AMD card and Intel HD is horrible compared to the Nvidia Optimus. My screen flickers couple of times and my desktop icons and post-its end up in different positions. 2. The USB 3 ports never work - They give me an error code 43 each time a drive is connected. I have to install the USB 3 driver each time i connect something. (all drivers are upto date. I even re-installed my OS) (With the ivy bridge since the USB 3 is natively supported this should no longer be a problem) The screen is great the build quality id brilliant..

Have had the laptop for 2 weeks, and very pleased with it. Fast, relatively light for its size, clear screen for productive business work, and solid. Was deciding between the 15z and the Envy: much better build than the Dell 15z No trackpad issues here either. Zoom works flawlessly, and scrolling with fingers is smooth. Only thing keeping the laptop from 5 stars would be its color issue (red is really a bit too orange) and its battery life. 4 hours is fine, but 5-6 would really be great. Core i7 with 8 gigs of Ram. I imagine with an i5 you might have a little more time on your hands... Summary: Crisp screen and responsive for work - solid build - fast. Now i hope it stays that way :)

I've been using the same old laptop for...wait for it... 8 years now, so I was more than thrilled to get my HP Envy. It arrived early even though I chose standard ground, and was tastefully packaged. It came with a really nice suede-like sleeve, and everything was neatly packed. It was almost like getting an Apple. The computer itself, which I took to a conference this past week, looks awesome. In fact, it was confused with a Macbook Pro by more than one person, and looks very similar to one on the inside. Sound system is great, if a bit treble-y. The flywheel volume control is really slick and fun to use. I also enjoy the ability to turn the backlit keyboard on or off using one of the function keys. Performance is fantastic so far. The system boots up in no time and everything is very responsive. There is minimal extra software to worry about and I haven't gotten too many of those annoying HP popups. My only complaints are: (1) the left click is a bit off. I find myself clicking and moving the cursor up at the same time, such that my clicks are not usually where I expect them. I use a USB mouse anyway so this isn't a big deal. (2) The battery life is *terrible.* I think this is unique to me since the battery runs < 2 hours on a full charge, so it could be a bad battery. I'm working with customer service on this. I would highly recommend this computer.

I always buy HP laptops, I like the made and style; but my new Envy 15 laptop is the best among all. The design, features, performance, battery life, and all other things are lovely. I really all beautiful ( and maybe subtle) features of this laptop, like backlid keyboard, 2 jacks for headphones (I love this feature of HP laptops), the new Imagepad with gestures, the new Beats volume rotating button and sound system, the solid and robust design, ... Believe me, do not hesitate to buy this product, you won't regret it ;)

To address the IT Professional reviewer: Agreement concering degree of pressure needed to depress click pad. Needs to be fixed. Over time, will wear on fingertips Disagreement: My case was scratch free, both the Magnesium top and the Aluminum base. I also agree with all his plus features adding the motion detector which turns on the backlit keyboard when you come near and turns it off when you leave. The subwoofer does have it's own individual control and is not a marketing ploy if you turn it up. The dual graphics cards was a pleasant surprise and suggest leaving it on the discrete power setting all the time, although you can leave it up to the OS to choose which card to use. I have the Envy 15 3033 whose only difference is that my Drive is 500 Gig, not 750 and 8 Gig of memory, not 6.I oted for the I7 2670 processor running 2.2 Ghz to 3.1, the slowest speed of the three offered. The machine stays eerily cool despite using it for 3D games and watching movies concurrently! The fan noise is undetectable! The screen is as mentioned stunningly clear, but I have had 1920x 1080 before so I am used to this level of quality. When looking at the RED on the TV Guide icon, it appears RED to me. The orange of the Bing Icon appears orange. The sound is run by Beats, which has both an analog volume control giving digital accuracy and the ability to emphasize dialog clarity when watching movies. My system had a quirky power button which needed more pressure to engage than normal.

The speed is good, but it hangs up periodically. For the price, I expect better performance. The keyboard is like an apple, so it is centered and does not have a number keypad on the right side. Definitely like the volume dial. Also, screen quality is great. However, this generation of 15" laptops does not fit into my rolling laptop bag- they are just a bit too long. Returning it in favor of a 14" laptop, which this does not come in.

When i first opened my envy i was very impressed at the design but after looking at it through and through, i do have dented usb ports. I love this machine but i have had problems with it freezing up during start up. hopefully i don't have this problem anymore otherwise i may have to return it. I'm having fun with the included Photoshop elements. the screen is great, the orange reds are not that noticeable (to me anyway).

You'll read or see issues with this notebook. Here are my opinions based on 15+ years as a senior manager in IT. THE BAD 1) The top of the case had minor scratches as if the product lid is slid along, possible in a qc review or as part of the manufacturing line. Not a deal breaker. 2) On each side of the case the rim surrounding two USB ports is dented in. Again, most likely part of the manufacturing process that is not fixed. Not a deal breaker. 3) Track pad, horrible. The worse I've seen in the business and I work or have owned every brand out there. You have to push so hard to get the pad to right or left click. Yes you can simply tap the item, but this functionality is very buggy. I loaded two different fw/driver versions and nothing seemed to help. The track pad is the #1 reason I sent the device back in less than one week. HORRIBLE! 4) Beats Audio, more of a gimmick in my mind but to boast that you have a sub woofer on the bottom is just marketing. The speakers did not sound any better then my 2 year old Lenovo or my one year old MBP. 5) Beautiful display, but you have trouble showing reds. I used a professional program and device to sync my colors for video and photo editing and I could not get the thing to show a real red. THE GOOD 1) Overall look of the product is very pleasing. If you're concerned for how your notebook looks, this is the product for you, as for me, I want functionality first, design second. 2) Very fast, great product and on par with other top level machines. 3) The screen is very beautiful, I had the 1080p and it did not disappoint. (other than the reds not being as red as you would expect)
