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 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.

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

The HP Envy 700-030qe ($1,179.99) is a high-performance system that is well suited to the user who is interested in the graphics arts, video editing, and a bit of 3D gaming. It's one of those systems that would've been called a high-end multimedia...

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.

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...
