HP Envy 15-1050NR | 1.6 GHz Core i7-720QM - 6GB DDR3 - 500GB HDD
4 Star Review  productwiki.com - Jan 19, 2010

With a design thats sleek and lightweight, the HP Envy 15 is an upgraded version of the 2009 HP Envy 15, ideal for buyers looking for a model thats standard, comortable and attractive. To go with the 2.4 GHz Intel Core i5-520M processor with Turbo Boost, the laptop has 6GB of memory and a 500GB hard drive that can store most large media collections and unique design programs. Unlike other devices created by the company, the laptop has an original 15.6-inch HD LED HP Ultra Brightview Widescreen display thats ideal for multimedia and for communication programs when used with the webcam and integrated microphone. To make the display graphics that much more detailed and smooth, the laptop features an upgrade in graphics as it now has a dedicated 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5830 video card. The HP Envy 15 also has a fluid keyboard and controls, Fast Web Access and ... PROS: (1) now comes with a cooler, more power efficient (albeit slower) Core i5 processor (2) comes with fast and ample system RAM and drive capacity - even on the lowest base configuration (4GB DDR3, 320GB 7200RPM HDD) (3) more affordable base configuration than the previous generation (4) beautiful 1080p display (upgrade option) (5) 16:9 display aspect ratio - ideal for gaming, watching HD media ... CONS: (1) no optical drive (2) Many buyers have reported repeated"black screen" crashing and freezing due to defective ATI Radeon graphics cards (3) location of special function keys to the left of the keyboard results in accidentally opening print menu, email applications, etc., while working in other applications or games (4) touchpad is slightly less sensitive than MacBook Pro, often requiring repeated attempts to activate multi-touch scrolling (5) 4k read speed of dual SSD Raid0 is 10x slower than it should be, even slower than the 4k write speed

Very nice display, worst ever webcam
2 Star Review   By CHELO on HP - Jun 18, 2010   

Its a good start for HP but a real shame that it has so many issues. Issues: 1. It runs really hot 2. The trackpad is one of the worst I've used. Even after firmware upgrade 3. The webcam is the worst ever. Everything is purple regardless of the lighting. After dropping 2K on a laptop, one should at least expect an above average webcam. Pros: Very nice display.
