Excellent all-round performance ; Above average battery life ; Beautiful 1080p display ; Class-leading audio quality ; Competitively priced

Derivative design ; 1080p display strains the GPU

The HP Envy 15 finally provides Windows users with a product that can go toe-to-toe with what Apple offers.

The black chiclet-style keyboard is highlighted with a subtle yet striking red strip that runs around its recessed inside edge. Each key is individually backlit with an LED; the letters are brighter but the light leakage is significantly reduced. It's...

Fast productivity and graphics performance. Full HD display. Excellent Beats Audio sound system

Short battery life. Design is getting dated

The HP Envy 15 (2012) laptop may borrow its look from Apple, but HP's integration of Beats Audio and a healthy helping of internal components make it a good, 15-inch working environment for audio, video, or design aficionados.

It's easy to be charmed by the design, audio and features of the Envy 15. Sadly, its selling feature, the optional high-resolution display, has the glaring fault of displaying red as orange.

Great sound ; Good battery life ; High-resolution display is welcome ; Included software is highly appreciated

Radiance display shows red as orange ; Mouse pad is high friction and the integrated click pad isn't the most accurate option

Powerful and Excellent Value

 

While the sacrifice is a short battery time, the AMD processor is much more powerful than the Intel processor at the same price. The island style keyboard isn't backlit, but is easy to type on and doesn't feel or look cheap. The trackpad is excellent...

Let me start by saying that I got the low-res screen version and can confirm that it does not have the same red/orange problem as its HD cousin. So if, like me, you actually can't see the difference its worth adding a couple of points to the above score.

The laptop. All of it. Haven't found anything i don't love

RRP higher then the competition
