The ENVY 17-2070NR 17.3" Notebook Computer from Hewlett-Packard is a 17.3" notebook computer, with a stunning display. Designed with cord-free operation, performance, and style in mind, the computer includes two batteries, which combine for a total of 8 hours of runtime between charges.
Weighing about 7.7 pounds and measuring only slightly more than two inches thick when closed, the computer delivers quad-core performance and impressive aesthetics. It is housed in a brushed aluminum casing for enhanced durability. The Envy's chassis is adorned with HP's head-turning, laser-etched carbon relic design.
The computer features a Blu-ray disc drive, which allows you to play HD movies, either on your computer screen or on an HDTV via the computer's HDMI output. The optical drive can also read and burn DVD and CD discs. The computer also supports Intel's Wireless Display technology, which allows you to connect to an HDTV wirelessly. You'll need the optional Netgear Push2TV accessory to utilize this technology.
Sound is provided by the Beats audio system, which has been tuned by audio engineers to produce some of the finest audio possible in a notebook PC. HP recommends Beats Studio Headphones by Dr. Dre for the finest listening experience.
The system's 17.3" display features a LED backlight for superior image quality and reduced energy consumption. The display features a 1920 x 1080 native resolution that is capable of displaying 1080p HD video. It features a 120Hz refresh rate, which ensures jitter-free video playback in 2D and 3D alike. The integrated webcam -- located in the top bezel of the display -- allows you to chat online.
The system is powered by a 2GHz Intel Core i7-2630QM CPU, which can be overclocked to 2.9GHz thanks to Intel Turbo Boost. It boasts 6GB of RAM, dual 500GB 7200rpm hard drives, Bluetooth, dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi, and AMD Mobility Radeon HD 6850M graphics with 1GB of GDDR5 memory.
