1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

Pros: -great specs
-looks great
-thats it.

Cons: This laptop continually crashes while using anything that requires a medium to high amount of ram and cpu. When it crashes there is no error message or blue screen, just freeze and you must hold the power button to turn off, then back on. (which is very detrimental to the components)I think this is due to a poor design which causes it to overheat and crash, constantly. There is nothing you can do about it. Do Not Buy An Envy... PERIOD. There is no fix, HP will not help you, and newegg is still selling them. You will have to return the whole system and get a completely different laptop that is not an ENVY. We are looking into Asus laptops now.

Other Thoughts: buyer beware, this one will be in the shop or in the mail or broken. Those are your choices from the get go... just dont do it.

5 out of 5 eggsGorgeous, Stylish and Very Fast

Pros: This Desktop replacement is amazing, CPU power is all you could hope for from an Intel Quad Core, I Upgraded ram to 8gb PC3-12800 with Cas 11-11-11-28, tried the 9-9-9-28 and the laptop started freezing.
Blu-Ray drive is awesome, comes with Cyberlink Power DVD/BR software so u can watch movies right out of the box, Installed Skyrim, Blur, NFS, Crysis 2, MW3, Dirt 3 and they all run very good, I don't usually max all the settings, but usually run them at High Settings and they run smoothly, the HD 6850 runs and benchmarks very well. Don't forget to also pick up an XBOX 360 wired controller from Newegg that when hooked up to this laptop running windows 7, becomes the best gamepad you could ever have.

Cons: Weight, rest pad by touch pad warms up a bit when playing graphics intensive games, but it never burns or become uncomfortable.

Other Thoughts: Great Deal, great laptop, Great Performance.

5 out of 5 eggsBeyond Expectations....

Pros: I bought this primarily for the nights in motel rooms when I had run out of ideas to amuse myself...I could play some games...this machine is a beast....I've Got WOW, COD Black Ops, Skyrim, Civilization 5, and afew more on it and they all run balls out on high settings! Naturally it does all the Office 2010 stuff and my CAD program like it's a cool short, it's GREAT!

Cons: Weight....that's it. The battery is really only good for 2 1/2 hours, but I'm WAY happy with that! (A "FULL" 2 1/2 hours)

The weight is really not a con for me....I saw the weight when I bought it and knew such a machine would have to have some heft to it.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a Gaming Laptop you will be well satisfied with this....and as a previous review does run a tad hot when playng games....but if you elevate the back edge it's just fine.

1 out of 5 eggsLaptop gets unbearably hot

Pros: Laptop performs well most of the time.

Cons: The left side of the laptop gets unbearably hot when running high end games. It has all of the great things you would want in a gaming laptop but the heat on the left side is very uncomfortable as you can burn your left hand.

Other Thoughts: When the laptop gets too hot, I notice some performance issues such as lag in games as well as static sound.
