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...

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

 

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.

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...
