      Disadvantages

      Well worth it and comparable to more expensive machines.

      This is the best laptop I have used, it is truly amazing.

      It is energy efficient, light, gorgeous and robust.

      Switch on and in seconds you have the option of using just the media player or wait 15 seconds for windows 7 to start. Bypass that 15 secs by selecting the windows icon. Not happy with that? Set it up to for a 1 to 60 sec delay.

      Windows 7 starts rapidly and there are bags of free HP software to customize your Envy 15. Most notably are the 'beats' sound system and the HP MediaSmart webcam themes. (Yes it is the camera that follows your face.)

      This machine (at time of writing) has cost no more than £0.25 per day to run for average of 10 - 14 hours for mixed use of multitasking, gaming, HD streaming, all the usual suspects etc.

      And it can handle those tasks with the ATI Radeon HD 4830 graphics card. At max settings the laptop can get quite warm but my solution to that is ensure a good airflow under the laptop and remove battery when on the mains. Or run the settings slightly lower with the ATI Catalyst Control Center software.

      It is easy to carry around as it is surely one of the lightest notebooks for its size. This is helped by the separate R/W DVD. WiFi and Bluetooth are built in. Bluetooth is fast, WiFi is tested once and there is hardly any difference when connected to Ethernet.

      I have not dropped my machine but it is built very, VERY, strongly with no noticeable flex anywhere and without having a brittle feel about it.

      HP made this a trendy shiny with its laser etching which looks fine and not in your face but I can't help thinking at what cost? Then I realize the performance, speed and reliability of it and and stop thinking 'at what cost'.

      In my exhaustive search I found no negative reviews and one about 2 weeks after I had purchased it. I had not the same experience as that reviewer and still cannot fault my Envy 15 1060ea.
