    I really want to like it but I don’t., 27 Oct. 2015

    I’m regularly disappointed, which is a shame because it should be absolutely fantastic. Everything about the laptop is pretty self explanatory and what it says on the tin. It’s fast, powerful, can be used to play games or do graphics, analyse stocks or whatever you please. The single greatest problem is that the keyboard is awful and detracts from the fundamental interaction that you have with the machine. To the left hand side the ‘asdf’ area doesn’t feel secure and tends to flex and move as you type just giving a really poor feel, and all across the keyboard the keys have a really loose feel to them such that a key-press is not positive and doesn’t give you confidant feedback. Related to this, I think, is that when you type a word such as ‘loose’ or ‘poor’ with a double letter combination in the middle I am forever finding that the second key-press is not registered and the word comes out as ‘lose’ or ‘por’. I do a lot of typing and do not have this issue on other machines, and find it extremely frustrating on this one, especially considering that whilst ‘por’ isn’t a word, ‘loose’ and ‘lose’ both are and this sort of typo is often not picked up by a spell-checker so I have to waste time proof reading my writing extremely carefully.

    It feels like such a shame because the rest of the product is excellent, but the keyboard is such a fundamental part that when it constantly annoys you it just wears away at your whole experience and you begin to resent it. Especially since this machine looks and feels like HP’s answer to the Macbook Pro and Apple, famously, design every piece of the user experience to perfection, it really makes the product feel inferior.

    All in all I have to report that it’s an excellent machine, but if you intend to write anything longer than your Facebook status I wouldn’t recommend it. It’s just too much money to spend on something with such a nagging and unforgivably simple flaw.

    Great screen and dedicated GPU make this an ideal laptop, 25 Aug. 2014
    Squeebles (UK) –

    This review is from: HP ENVY 15-j140na (Intel Core i5-4200M with Intel HD Graphics 4600, 8 GB RAM, 1TB HDD (Personal Computers)
    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What’s this?)
    Firstly, I don’t know what the word “Tablet” in the title means for this laptop. The screen is not removable from the keyboard and there is no hidden technology suggesting some sort of transforming unit.

    The hardest part of using the Envy was setting up a Microsoft Live account. Having never used Windows 8 / 8.1 before (currently running Windows 7 at home and work) I didn’t realise you needed an account to get the laptop working fully. All combinations of my name and aliases were taken and I had to resort to some stupid hybrid before I found a useable one. Anyway, onwards & upwards…

    My previous laptop is also from Hewlett Packard (i3 ProBook) This laptop itself is lighter in comparison, the casing looks to be all plastic (unlike the metal cover of the ProBook) so I don’t know how scratch resistant it will be, but there’s not much in the way of flexing from the body or with the keyboard.

    Keyboard layout follows the standard format for HP (and many other similar laptops) containing standard qwerty and separate number pad. Strangely the keyboard backlight wasn’t on as standard but once I hit F5, it’s stunning. I cannot now go back to an unlit keyboard after that.

    Screen is a bright, full 1080p but initially text and apps weren’t running as sharp as they should be. Turns out there’s a Display setting in the Control Panel. Set it to “smaller” and everything than looks great. That and the keyboard backlight should have been set as standard by HP. You want the laptop to look awesome as soon as you switch it on. The fingerprint scanner is also not active first thing, but that’s not something you want to get wrong just trying out your new laptop. Trackpad works fine, but two finger scroll works the opposite to what I’m used (but that’s me and easily adjustable).

    The hard disk is 1TB partitioned with part of the disc set aside as a recovery partition and memory is a 8GB single memory module. You can add another 8GB stick or a maximum of (with a 64bit OS) and that is user-accessible & relatively easy to do (there’s a pop off panel on the underside where memory and hard drive sit) You can find videos on the internet to show you how to do it safely. The harddisk is also a hybrid, combining a 5400rpm drive with an 8GB SSD. The solid state cache helps speed up some applications and boot times, is much cheaper than a full 1TB SSD, so keeps the cost of this laptop down. Finally there’s an inbuilt accelerometer which parks the drive heads safely if you drop the laptop (delicate things moving parts are compared to SSDs).

    So far we have a nice laptop, but there are a couple of things that make it special, namely a NVIDIA graphics card with 2GB of separate memory and Beats audio with 4 speakers and two subwoofers ( ! ). Even though the i5 chip comes with Intel HD Graphics 4600 onboard, the ENVY has a GeForce 840M chipset. It’s a middle-class mobile graphics card which is remarkable at this pricepoint and with 2GB *should* be able to run all of 2014’s games at high settings and 720p resolution (but what do I know? I’m old and don’t play PC games). The Intel 4600 is designed to be less taxing on the battery so if you’re using MS Word or playing movies that will work just fine.

    The Beats Audio inclusion on the other hand, I’m not a fan of. I will update this bit when I do some more comparisons


    No windows 8 product key on a sticker on the casing (the ProBook has the Windows 7 sticker inside the battery compartment. With HP, the product key resides in the bios. How that’s going to help if you want to downgrade to Windows 7 or even upgrade to Windows 9, I`m not sure.

    Battery life doesn’t seem to be stellar, though I haven’t pushed the laptop hard. It did seem to go into sleep mode at 9%, but that could be due to the wrong settings for battery power.

    Call me a luddite, but having no DVD drive in this is a tad disappointing. Yes I know you can use the wifi to stream audio & video from your network and it’s not difficult to backup your purchased blu-rays and CDs to a removable hard drive / usb stick. External DVD or Blu Ray writers aren’t expensive these days either, so this really isn’t an issue.

    All in, despite the odd niggle (which I will find out more about over due course), this is an excellent laptop.
