HP Envy 700-030qe review: It's the components that matter

 

HP makes some good component choices for the Envy 700-030qe, but the overall package is somewhat imperfect.

Powerful 4th generation Intel processor ; Quiet, sleek and compact ; Blu-ray burner

A single 256GB SSD for storage ; Middle-of-the-road video card ; Just one PCIe x16 slot (occupied)

The HP Envy 700-030qe is an above-average computer that’s reasonably priced.

HP Envy 700-030qe

 

The HP Envy 700-030qe is a mainstream multimedia desktop that goes for $1,000 less than similarly equipped systems used to go for.

Good gaming performance. Excellent day-to-day performance. Blu-ray drive. Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements. 802.11b/g/n WiFi

Could use a data storage drive. Locked CPU. Some bloatware.

Essentially, the HP Envy 700-030qe is a competent and compliant multimedia desktop. It gives you what you'd expect at this price point: very good multimedia benchmark performance, a good amount of day-to-day performance, and some gaming prowess....

HP Envy 700

 

The HP Envy 700-030qe is a peak performance multimedia computer. Its components separately are fantastic, and when they work together, they're even better. This computer has tons of storage and enough connectivity to satisfy your needs including HDMI...

This computer has strong components with plenty of room to upgrade

The power supply won’t support a stronger graphics card

This is a great multimedia PC that has peak performance components.

HP Envy 700-030qe

 

The HP Envy 700-030qe is a member of the class of systems that used to be called high-end multimedia desktop PCs. The fact that you can get all that power for over a $1,000 less than you used to is amazing.

Replaced my XP out-dated computer

 

I've had this computer about 2 months. I'm very happy with the speed and quality of the computer. It has great features. For me the best option was being able to go wireless. Windows 8 is an adjustment from what I'm accustomed to but I realize a common...
