Blazing speed
5 Star Review   By ReturnCustomer on HP - May 9, 2013   

I got the ENVY dv7-7250us to replace a Pavilion zd7000 CTO that died after nine and a half years. The i7-3630QM processor is blazing fast compared to the old Pentium 4 and consumes less power. Boot up with UEFI takes seconds rather than minutes. The transition from Windows XP to Windows 8 was far easier than others have reported. While Windows 8 has apps for touch screen, I only use desktop applications and a little bit of customization makes it similar to what I used before. The Windows 8 tutorial shows most of what to do, but I had already read the "Windows 8 Inside Out" book and had already done it.

I purchased the laptop a couple of weeks ago. So far everything is as expected. HP was great to order from and deliver was ahead of schedule.

great machine, fast.
5 Star Review   By harpo on HP - Feb 12, 2013   

I wanted a larger, high resolution screen for photography projects. I also wanted a faster processor with plenty of memory. Both of these criteria were satisfied with the Envy dv7. I am a little at sea with Windows 8, but that's another issue not related to the dv7.

It is awesome. With one catch
4 Star Review   By DRCrump8008 on HP - Feb 2, 2013   

This laptop for the price is a monster. Quad core proc, 8 gigs of ram, huge hard drive, long battery life, crisp screen. The weight is very good for a laptop of this size. Runs programs in a snap. Aluminum not plastic housing, and a great keyboard. Oh ... and the onboard web cam is outstanding. The only con I have is the lack of recovery disk. The recovery is on the main HD. Thats great but what if your hard drive goes? Then you are going to be buying a recovery disk from HP. Then there is the windows 7 issue. As in it will not install and there are no drivers online for it. As a developer and musician most of my software does not yet run on 8. Especially my external recording devices. So being able to at least install a dual boot setup would be ideal. With a 900 gig post formatted hard drive I should have the room. Other than that I can recommend this laptop. I think for the price vs specs it is great. Maybe there is a way to force 7 on it somehow. We shall see.

Suberb Computer
5 Star Review   By ReallynowAngelo on HP - Jan 23, 2013   

This computer has exceeded our expectations and is now fought over in the house. We use it for pic/video editing, apple device mgmt., office productivity, gaming, etc... It has great performance, quality and display. We replaced an old tower and monitor with the sleek 17" monitor creating desk room. It's easy to warm up to Windows 8. Ordering through HP site was extremely easy and secure.

overall happy with it
4 Star Review   By kazman on HP - Dec 26, 2012   

While I am overall satisfied with this laptop, I do have some issues with the tutorials but that could just be me in not knowing where to look for help. It's taking me a while to get used to windows 8 but seems ok overall.

The ENVYdc7 is a laptop to envy.
5 Star Review   By adr99 on HP - Dec 18, 2012   

The laptop is great, the clarity of the screen is topnotch. The only negative thing I have found so far is the lack of experience of Windows 8, but it is getting better.

Creature Comforts
4 Star Review   By JBF4 on HP - Nov 10, 2012   

I have only had the laptop for a day so I thought I would write about my initial reactions. I bought it because I do a lot of photography and graphics. The files are huge, so this should have no problem. There were two things initially. It is not a touch screen, I overlooked that but it isn't important to me anyway, just would have been fun. Also the keys are not back lit. That's a pet peeve of mine because I am a night owl and work in low light a lot. I missed that also, but not a big deal. It literally took all day to load Adobe Creative Suites CS6, about seven hours; huge software. My photos look amazing on the screen. The colors are spot on and sharp. While other people are going smaller I am going bigger. I also plan to tether my camera to it so the screen will be great for that. It is wide but it doesn't feel heavy to me. It's lightning fast which I am thrilled about. I am very happy, just wished it had a few more"creature comforts". Oh, love the Beats speakers, they just sound great!
