Comment: I just have one question . Is there anyone who has improved the computer resolution ? If not are there any methods to do that ( hardware ) ?
Good: The machine is lightweight and slim, with a decent size screen. OS runs fine with no blue screens or erros.
Bad: Poorly constructed. Materials are substandard. Built very flimsy.
Comment: I bought this machine back in July of 2012 for my wife to use for her work. Just recently the screen started coming apart from the hinge. The machine internals are good. It’s fast and has nice graphics. However, it looks like HP cut corners on the quality of materials and workmanship, keyboard, screen bezel, and overall construction of the computer. If the outside were as good as the inside, this would be an excellent machine priced right. At $700 - $800, I think it is overpriced for the type of quality and value it offers.
Good: Design, Performance, Feel
Bad: Audio, Heat
Comment: Bought mine around July and i have been satisfied with it. Looks good, good performance compared to my old Sony Vaio especially while using media. The bottom has a cool matte feeling and stays somewhat cool. What I was more confused than dissatisfied with was how to use or settings for the Beats audio. I mean, sounds better than the avg laptop but at times the bass is flat, the treble was somewhat high pitched and maybe some standard settings would be nice. When watching HD movies the top left hand corner near the power switch and speakers it can get pretty hot. Hot enough to where I wouldn't let my hand just lay there. Though, overall I like it more than I dont. Good Price and SO FAR so good.
Good: The thinness and weight
Bad: Has adm processor instead of intel
Comment: Hoping to get this sleekbook soon can't wait!!
Good: I Love beats audio with it.
Comment: Have they sorted the heating issue out
Comment: Ugliness at very high price. Should have made something pretty. Prefer Toshiba or Lenove, at least they are good looking too.
Good: Performance and build quality
Bad: No many options for video output - Although HDMI suits me!
Comment: I love this laptop, I just bought it this morning after reading http://techod.com/hp-envy-15-review-and-specs/
I can't get over how much faster it is than my old vista laptop!! Very happy!
