Review HP Envy 17-j110eg Leap Motion Notebook


New ground. HP is the first manufacturer to equip its media-focused flagship with Leap Motion capability and a touchscreen, but is this worth the extra cost of 60 Euros (~$82)? Additionally, the internals of the laptop have been refreshed, including a...

TouchDisplay; Leap Motion; Good CPU performance; More than enough RAM; Battery life during light work; Speakers

Noisy fan; Battery life under load; Too hot; TFT with a blue tint

A simple trick is enough to improve the stability of the chassis and thus of the keyboard dock: HP fills the (anyway unusable) 2.5-inch slot with a sturdy piece of metal.

No Sound/CCC Issues


I am commenting on an envy 15 from 2012, but When on forums, these issues have not been addressed on the newer models either.

good price, works well when working

The HP Envys have catalyst Control Center issues where the computer struggles to switch between graphics cards. The sound also cuts out for weeks at a time. HP support is beyond awful and will not fix this ; Beware

Very happy


If you need conversion to DVI use "Sapphire Active Displayport->DVI adapter" ; a passive cable does not work properly for me, this one works fine. * mSATA port is SATA III 6gbps speedy niceness; I got 500MB/sec off my replacement SSD. Not confirmed...

Roaringly fast CPU (for today..) ; Gorgeous LCD; crisp+bright, good color reproduction, 0 bad pix for me ; Quiet fan (compared to many; not annoying) ; Three simultaneously usable digital monitor outs (2 Displayport + HDMI ) - analog VGA sucks. This...

Very happy but... minor things ; 3D is a bit of a gimmick although quite nice on Google Earth. I see noticable flickering when it's on. I didn't buy this for the 3D and will rarely use it. It's not awe-inspiring ; 80gb SSD is not big enough for a...

Great computer, a little larger than I need and might have a little difficulty when traveling with the laptop. Anxious to see if I have room to work on the plane in those smaller-sized seats. Up overall, very happy with the speed, appearance and...

nice computer


The laptop set up easily and is easy to use. I had to play around a bit with Windows 8.0. The keyboard feels positive and I've had no instances of cursor dislocation due to palms on pad. My recent laptop is a Vaio XP. The new HP is faster and brighter....
