At the time of writing, HP Envy 15 review, details and configurations were not available. With the release of some specific details have started coming. Here's a quick look at the good, the bad and the swift conclusion.
The HP packages Envy 15-1050NR a lot of power in a thin and small size of 15 inches. Its 1080p screen looks great and is backed by HP's robust body. Fairly expensive, even for the power packages. We need the internal optical drive. Some blu ray playback screen issues and problems with high-end Radeon cards have been reported by users.
The HP Envy 15-1050NR is the intel Core i7-720QM 1.6GHz processor frequency. Importantly, despite the fact that this laptop nominally works at 1.6 GHz, using the turbo function of core frequency can ramp up to 2.8 GHz turbo technology allows the processor core frequency to increase the fly based on demand. The advantage of turbo technology is that it keeps the battery in the control in notebooks while still giving the processing power when needed.
The memory controller integrated i7 means that memory performance has increased substantially. The processor has 4 cores and two threads on each core, there could be 8 hyperthreads run simultaneously. This significantly increases performance when multiple processes are running. The processor has 6 MB of shared L3 cache.
The 15-1050NR comes with 6 GB of DDR3 1066MHz system in operation. This, combined with the integrated memory controller of the Core i7-720QM gives significant performance boost to the notebook. The notebook has 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4830. The Envy 15-1050NR HP has 15.6-inch LED display widescreen and offers a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels or 1080p high definition quality.
Some customers have reported amazon display problem that seems to come from the incompatibility with the top end Radeon card (ATI Mobility Radeon HD5830). This could be a driver or BIOS problem. If you buy the latest book note you can expect it to be free from defects in them.
The high end graphics card also means that the laptop will be breezing quickly if you need any graphic representation, coding.
