Some customer reviews of HP Envy TouchSmart 15-j051sa

Most helpful reviews

K, MAnchester General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Brilliant screen resolution and the touchscreen is easy to use. Runs smoothly, even playing some mid-resolution games. The keyboard is a dream and the back light is a nice touch. The sound from the speakers is better than any laptop I have had, I don't generally need to use any other form of sound product for listening to music.
Bad points:
The touchpad has been non-functional since I started using an external mouse and the updates for the synaptic touchpad from HP and synaptics have not worked in fixing it, I have had to use a bogus download driver which is not very helpful. Hopefully HP or Synaptics will release a driver that is compatible with windows 8.1 soon. The laptop is quite heavy but I don't mind too much. Soe of the ports for the power/usb are in difficult places when you have more than one external device.

Laptop Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

With incredibly powerful processing, gorgeous graphics and an intuitive touchscreen, the HP Envy TouchSmart 15-j051sa 15.6” Touchscreen Laptop delivers the ultimate in mobile computing.

Built for touch

Optimised for touch, Windows 8 puts your favourite apps and programmes at your fingertips.

Simply touch a programme tile to open it and move around using taps, swipes and pinches. It only takes a moment to pick up and is already second nature if you use a smartphone or tablet.

The home screen is built around Live Tiles. These programme icons display real time information from all your favourite apps including social networking, emails, news and sports directly on the home screen. You don’t even have to open the programme to receive important info and notifications.

Windows 8 is Cloud ready, letting you choose to back up your information online. Not only is this a good idea for preserving important files, photos and documents, it allows you to access them from any online Windows 8 device. Simply log in using an email address to access all your documents, organised just how you left them.

Quad core Intel® processing

The Envy 15 is powered by an incredibly powerful Intel® Core™ i7-4700MQ processor. With a blistering TurboBoost clock speed of 3.4 GHz, it can easily run the most demanding programmes. From gaming to media editing and music production, the i7-4700MQ is up to the task.

With four cores over the usual two, the i7-4700MQ not only deals with difficult tasks quicker, it speeds up everyday computing, making the Envy 15 as comfortable number crunching and video editing as it is browsing the web.

Dedicated multi-core processing support is integrated into most high end design and creative software, making the Envy 15 the ideal portable workstation or studio.

Everyday performance

A generous 8 GB of RAM helps the i7 processor run difficult tasks more smoothly and helps with multitasking. So whether you need multiple documents open or to sync various design programmes together, the Envy 15 won’t slow you down.

Storage is provided by a huge 1 TB hard drive that’s capable of storing all your high volume programs, files and documents.

Backing up is simple too thanks to four USB 3.0 ports. Capable of quickly transferring data between devices, USB 3.0 makes short work of backing up even the biggest project files.

Dedicated graphics

The Envy 15 features an Nvidia GeForce GT 740M graphics card. Delivering up to five times the graphics performance of an integrated graphics card, the GT 740 is ideal for gaming on the move or making the most of films and photos.

Dedicated graphic cards have performance benefits as well as improving the quality of the display. By taking the graphics processing away from the processor, the i7-4700MQ can concentrate on difficult tasks, giving you a smoother, more efficient computing experience.

Beats Audio

You can say goodbye to tinny laptop speakers thanks to Beats Audio. With four speakers and two Triple Bass Reflex subwoofers integrated into the chassis, it delivers the sound quality you expect from a Beats Audio product.

All new Envy

The Envy range has been completely redesigned to be lighter and thinner than ever. Despite its portable design, the Envy 15 still features a 15.6” high definition screen, a full sized keyboard with number pad and excellent security features including a high-tech finger print scanner.

Wireless computing

You can comfortably work and game anywhere thanks to the six hour battery life and excellent wireless connectivity. The built-in WiFi adapter makes getting online simple while integrated Bluetooth makes it easy to connect to speakers, smartphones and a wealth of other compatible devices completely cable free.

WiDi compatibility is a useful feature that allows you to wirelessly view your laptop’s screen on any compatible TV or device. WiDi transmits a full 1080p HD signal, making it perfect for films or games.

If WiDi is not available, you can achieve the same result by connecting the Envy 15 to you TV or monitor via a handily located HDMI port.

With incredible performance, dedicated graphics and a smooth, premium design, the HP Envy TouchSmart 15-j051sa 15.6” Touchscreen Laptop is the ideal laptop for serious computing.
