      HP makes excellent laptops my last three or four have all been top of the line models ever since IBM priced their Thinkpad's in the Apple range for less computer and that's hard to do otherwise I've would be using 17" Mac Book Pros if the price was equal. Be nice you could by hardware then add the OS you want to to include Mac OS X. But that is not the case so after figuring out Win 8 and playing with it I've decided to return to Win 7 64 bit as all my programs not apps run on it with some work from the old MS VS 6 suite the I use to design programs This thing runs like a race horse on steroids the envy screen is in deed much better than the Pavilion ones I've seen and used. My requirements for this machine was a 17" screen, the fastest intel chip sub $1K , 1TB HD EXPANDABLE TO TWO, BLURAY /DVD writer

      Good: The Beats Audio system is very good. The lightness of the machine is also in its favor. The keyboard is easy on the fingers. The fingerprint reader system is also easy to use.
      Not so good: I just wouldn't put Windows 8 on a non-touch machine, desktop or laptop. And, although I haven't begun to add more programs, the startup and running of programs seems slower than the specs would indicate.

          Comments about HP ENVY dv7-7250us 17.3" Notebook PC (Midnight Black Aluminum):

          This laptop can handle the entire Adobe Production Premium Creative Suite. I am excited about the Intel Core i7 processor, and it looks slick too. Also, it comes with a fingerprint sensor so it can scan my fingerprint instead of typing in a password. I love it! It is going to take some time to learn Windows 8, but I think I will like it better once I get used to it.

                        We bought this for a home based business and, so far, it has met or exceeded our expectations. For the price it offered more than other brands. The battery life is good. Windows 8 is more for a touch screen device but the large mouse pad makes up for most of that. It is a LARGE laptop so don't buy this if you are looking for something on the compact side.

                                  Comments about HP ENVY dv7-7250us 17.3" Notebook PC (Midnight Black Aluminum):

                                  I've only had the HP ENVY dv7-7250us 17.3" Notebook for about 3 weeks, but so far we Love it! Windows 8 is a little less than user friendly (it seems like maybe it's meant more for the touch screen interface). But all and all the Tb memory is FANTASTIC, the display is beautiful, and the fingerprint password is really handy. The battery seems to have a long life and the % life left indicator helps you to know when to plug it in. 17.3" is quite large if you tote it around alot, but it mostly stays in our home so I prefer the large screen. It isn't too heavy either. The keyboard also had the numbers only pad on the right, which i didn't realize would be such a big deal... but I've found it VERY convenient. All in all, we are VERY happy with it!
