I wonder what the build quality of HP Envy products is. I have been diappointed by the quality of HP inkjets, they are crap. HP laser printers are ok, but then, they have Canon engines inside. I had a Pavilion laptop which died less than a year old. My most recent HP was a Slate 7 Mesquite Android tablet, which behaves erratically (boots up after powering off when you inser the microUSB cable to charge the device). Many users have complained about crap HP Android tablets. When I complained about the Slate problem, the HP support person (in India) told me that was the way the product was designed. BS.
My mom said to me a number of years ago if you have nothing nice to say, then don’t say it…but 1366 x 768 for a display?
Who gives a crap what the specs are for these laptops when they’re attached to garbage displays? I’ve owned several HP laptops over the years, and they were all decent disposables. Parts break off all of them - they are fragile. They work though and are cheap. The low res crappy screens on the laptops woot sells make it pointless though.
woot - hear us please. If you are going to sell a decent laptop - make sure that it has, at a minimum 1920x1080 display. The only laptops that should have 1366x768 display should be less than $350.
I’d be all over this if it weren’t for the resolution. Even 1600x900 would have been fine by me.
I have absolutely no use for yet another laptop around the house, but I was tempted by a 15.6" i7 touchscreen - until I saw the resolution. There’s no way in hell I would go 1366x768. That was ok in 2007, unacceptable today.
for $20 more, 1920x1080 I7-4700hq, 8gb ram 15.6" Asus refurb.
Here are some Amazon User reviews
Add me to the rest of the group. Would be in if it weren’t for that resolution. The 5yo laptop I’m replacing has a higher resolution then this one!
HP has a decent deal on new laptops right now too; $150 off.
It ends up being $650 (+S&H +tax) for a 15.4" 1920x1080, i7-4700MQ, 8gb, 1tb.
Gets mediocre reviews like many of these HP Envy laptops do because of 4hrs battery life, backlit keyboard is extra.
I could use a replacement laptop-my 6 year old Dell is fading fast- but do I really need a touchscreen?
I bought this for my son for Christmas. It’s an excellent machine for $460 1920x1080 I5 15.6" touchscreen, only 4gb RAM, but has one open slot -I added more 4 gb-easy and cheap, backlit keyboard- great machine!!
@joymonkey, Ouch, that stings! $5 less than Woot delivered (HP $10 ship), 1920 x 1080 display, brand new, direct from HP as long as you don’t mind 8GB vs. 12GB RAM (not a big deal).
Even if you were OK with this Woot’s 1366 x 768 screen and didn’t mind 8 GB vs this Woot’s 12 GB RAM, the brand new price @ HP would be $599 or $55 cheaper delivered.
Seems like the Woot buyers would at least check HP’s site when setting their price.
I was anti-touchscreen until my work bought me a Transformer Prime, which (with the keyboard perpetually attached) I now use as my primary laptop.
The touchscreen takes a little getting used to, but really does make some (simple) tasks easier. Particularly when using an OS designed for them.
Now when I use my Windows 7 laptop, I’m constantly poking at the screen, forgetting that it’s NOT a touchscreen.
(Also, I agree that this screen isn’t good enough to justify the purchase.)
Its surprising to me how many scream about the resolution. Not everybody uses a laptop to play games nor does everybody need a laptop to watch HD quality video. lots of current gen business apps want 1366x768. I didn’t say I want it, it just is what it is. Even at 1366x768 video looks very nice. However, I agree, I think the price point here is much more attractive under $600. But, pound for pound, this deal is all bad. Similar laptop, Dell, is gonna go close to $800 with half the ram and half the drive space.
I’ve had very good luck with HP laptops. I’m a consultant and travel quite a lot. My company gave me a HP machine about 5 years ago and it went everywhere with me for 3-4 years… weekly flights from Dallas to LA for 2 of those years. My past 3 clients have provided me with HP laptops (banking and high security work where they want to limit non-company machines on their network) and I’ve had good luck with all of them so-far… even the ones that had been previously used. I was recently given an upgrade to the 5 year-old machine, but it is still working.
I love the fact that they have all used the same power brick and connector (I’ve got 3-4 of 'em around the house already), so I’m hoping that this one is the same as I order the Envy for my wife’s new web surfing / email checking / video calling / word processing / movie watching machine.
ALL of my tablets, including my iPad2 turn on when a charger is inserted. I think you owe some guy in India an apology.
