HP Envy 17 review

 

At 3.41kg, the HP Envy 17 laptop is barely thicker than an inch and includes robust media playback capabilities - including Blu-ray movies.

Overall, the HP Envy 17 looks to be an elegant, relatively compact laptop (as desktop replacement systems go) for digital photographers, music buffs, video enthusiasts, and gamers. HP's Envy 17 is a robust, media-centric desktop replacement that's...

HP Envy 17 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The hefty HP Envy 17 is a big-screen laptop with components that scream high-end. An i7 processor, 12GB of Ram and a vast 1TB hard drive all power a massive 17.3-inch screen. Here's our first look of HP's mighty Envy 17.

HP - Envy 17 3D

 

After Avatar kickstarted the current craze for 3D movies and games, it was almost inevitable that HP would devise something to rival NVIDIA's 3D Vision technology. And the laptop computer they've chosen to showcase their 3D ...

If this is your first foray into 3D laptops, then you'll need deep pockets and a strong back. The HP Envy 17 3D is a sleek, powerful heavyweight that brings out the best in 3D movies, but still has a bit of catching up to do on its NVIDIA gaming rival.

HP Envy 17 review

 

When it comes to selecting our favorite mainstream Windows laptops these days the HP Envy 14 is pretty much at the tippy top of the list. (Hey, we don't

Beautiful, well-built chassis ; Stunning 17.3-inch HD display ; Seriously speedy performance / graphics

Touchpad is still annoying ; Palmrest can get quite toasty ; Heavier than other desktop replacements

HP Envy 17 review: HP Envy 17

 

HP Envy 17

Slim, attractive design; full-HD 1080p display; USB 3.0 port.

Only one GPU option; clickpad still isn't perfect; short battery life.

Though it's still in the upper ranges of current laptop prices, HP's upscale-feeling Envy 17 offers great hardware at a decent price.

HP Envy 17 Review - PCWorld

 

The overall look of the latest Envy 17 hews to the understated nature of the product line, with muted grays and light, dimpled swirl details on the case. The packaging is plain and simple as well, and most of the documentation ships on an included 2GB...

Good gaming performance

Fan gets noisy, and surface of the unit can get hot

HP's Envy 17 is a robust, media-centric desktop replacement that's svelte enough to lug around if you need a large screen on the go.

HP Envy 17 Review

 

The HP Envy 17 gets updated with a refined design and a brilliant 4K display, but with no gaming prowess and no touch support, it may not have everything you want.

Strong general performance; Excellent 4K display; Bang & Olufsen audio

Awkward drop-hinge design; No touch option with 4K resolution; Graphics don't support gaming
