In the past, HP Envy laptops had a reputation for running hot, which shortens their life, increases the risk of short term failure, and causes the CPU protection circuitry to slow the processing speed. I don’t know about this particular model, but if I was considering purchasing one, I would look up online reviews about it.
Despite some good information, this review reminds me of an old adage, “All the world’s a stage and most of us are desperately unrehearsed.” ― Seán O’Casey
Video review told me everything I wanted to know. Glossy Screen equals epic failure
I own an older Envy 17 with an i7 and a 17.3" 1080p display. It runs hot if I am using the Radeon graphics. It’s fine if I switch to the onboard Intel graphics chipset.
I was going to replace it, but it’s in nearly perfect shape because it was rebuilt (more like replaced based on the gigantic listing of parts) under HP’s accidental damage warranty. I was travelling and the TSA must have dropped it when the opened my luggage for inspection.
I don’t know that I’d buy another one unless they’ve greatly improved the temperature situation.
Maybe that gal who was cleaning plane in NY dropped it.
my girlfriend had an HP Envy with AMD beats edition and indeed it does run hotter than hot. The core i7 should be cooler tho.
It doesn’t ventilate itself very well, and for twice the price you’ll get a mac of the same specs that will run just as hot.
