HP Envy TouchSmart 15t-j100 Quad Edition

 

The HP TouchSmart 15t-j100 Quad Edition gives you the power of a multimedia desktop in a semi-portable laptop.

Large bright touch screen. Beats Audio. Numeric keypad. Discrete graphics. Cache SSD helps performance. Removable battery. Very good day-to-day and multimedia performance.

Heavy. Backlit keyboard not standard. Lots of pre-loaded apps. No 5GHz Wi-Fi. Only four hours of battery life. Speakers could be louder. Narrow viewing angles.

The HP TouchSmart 15t-j100 Quad Edition is a serviceable power user laptop. It can speedily run through the tasks that you'd need a high powered processor and graphics for, like video and photo work, graphics arts, and light gaming. However, our...

So far, great laptop

 

I got this laptop customized for my needs. I decided to go with an SSD drive and it makes the laptop really fast. I got it at a good price compared to what was the original. So far, its performance is great. The built is very solid and all aluminium. I...

A few issues, but a worthy laptop for the price.

 

I've had my HP Envy 15t laptop for over 1 month. The 4 stars indicate an overall pleasant experience with a few issues that are probably more Windows 10 related than actual hardware issues. HP Support and Support Assistant software are very valuable...

Poor Experience So Far

 

Average machine at best; seemed like a good deal for the features- now it just seems shoddy.

screen bleed from the sides, not the best laptop

 

Upgraded to 1080P but video driver often crash, screen bleed from sides. Microsoft edge browser from windows 10 doesn't work properly, have to use internet explorer which is ok.

Hinges broke after three years

 

Except for the sound system (the speaker volume was extremely low, but excellent with headphones), I was very pleased with the operation of my Envy 15, and so should I. At the time I purchased this laptop, this series was new and I paid about $1000 for...

Great performing laptop at a great price!

 

I opted for the 1080 screen and larger battery. I will upgrade from 6gb to 12gb to make this stud even studlier. Even without an SSD it still fires up ready to go in about a minute. Internet browsing is super fast and all of the reporting I do for work...
