The 17.3" ENVY 17-s030nr Multi-Touch Notebook from HP is a large, portable notebook designed to handle everyday tasks such as browsing the Internet, creating and editing documents, watching or streaming videos, and even some gaming. Powered by a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7-6500U Dual-Core processor and 12GB of DDR3L RAM, the HP ENVY 17 enables you to efficiently multitask as well as quickly access frequently used files and programs. When you're handling a heavier workload, the CPU can reach up to 3.1 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost technology. Even though this system has two RAM slots, they are not user upgradeable.
Its 17.3" display, built with an IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel that provides you with vivid colors and wide viewing angles, has a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution so you can enjoy crisp, clear, and immersive HD content. Because the display is also a touchscreen, you can utilize touch gestures and commands to enhance its efficiency and accessibility. Driven by a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics card with 4GB of DDR3 VRAM, the HP ENVY 17 can even run graphically demanding games. Enable additional graphical settings and crank up in-game visual options to enjoy games at their best. An HDMI port lets you connect an external display for additional screen real-estate.
Unlike most notebooks, the HP ENVY 17 is equipped with a hybrid drive for storage. It spins at 5400 rpm and has a 1TB capacity with 8GB of NAND, which lets you boot up and load files and programs quickly. If you need more space, you can connect external storage devices using its multiple USB ports as well as its multi-format media card reader, which can also be used to quickly transfer files from mobile devices. Should you run out of USB ports or would rather save them for other devices, you can pair compatible wireless peripherals using Bluetooth 4.0 technology.
Connect to the Internet via 802.11ac Wi-Fi or the 10/100 Ethernet port for a more stable and reliable wired connection. Other integrated features include speakers, microphones, a webcam for video chatting capabilities, a SuperMulti DVD drive that lets you read and write optical media, a backlit keyboard for typing in dimly lit environments, and a 3.5mm microphone and headphone combo jack. Additionally, the HP ENVY 17 comes with a few bonuses to help you get started. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Home.
