4 out of 5 eggsHP Envy This!

Pros: My refurbished HP Envy laptop arrived on time and as specified. I am very happy with its features and quality. I am especially happy with it having a DVD drive/burner & a fingerprint reader for easy login & password control. The lighted keyboard is of great benefit when working in low light situations. HP included proprietary software updates for its drivers, which is a Plus when trying to keep all hardware current with software.

Cons: I was disappointed that the computer indicated that the power charger did not have the needed ability to keep the laptop charging correctly. I call with HP Support corrected this problem & it has not been an issue since. I dislike the mouse pad and lack of right & left buttons. It is difficult using the "Apple-like" device and I often have difficulty adapting to it. I also found it a problem that my Windows 8 license key was not visible, except for a shinny Windows sticker. I would have preferred Windows 7 Pro.

Other Thoughts: I give this HP Envy laptop an 8 out of 10, mainly because I am very happy with it, but dislike the mouse pad.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Deal

Pros: Great value and easy upgrade to Windows 8.1. Perfect for college work. A lot of computer for the price.

Cons: None that I have found.

Other Thoughts: I know there are better displays and faster machines, but the cost would be considerably more. Even the higher priced machines had processor speeds that that were below what my software recommended, and this machine had higher speeds. Hats off to Newegg for having such a great price.

4 out of 5 eggsUpgradeable to Windows 8.1

Pros: Finally able to upgrade this machine to Windows 8.1. So if you have been having issues upgrading yours, you might want to give it a shot again. It looks as if HP/Microsoft have finally resolved their issues

Cons: Backlit, Audio

Other Thoughts: I will purchase/recommend the system for others.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: BIG screen, BIG HDD, fast processor, LOTS of RAM, lots of pluses.
I'm not sure about the other complaints about the WiFi not working, mine worked straight out of the box. Everything else is working perfectly, this is easily the best laptop I've ever bought for the price. Refurb or not, you wouldn't even know.
Newegg is awesome, delivered the laptop to me one day early (as usual).

Cons: Other than running with WIndows 8 (not a fan) there are no cons.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop!

Pros: This is my first laptop so I have been trying to educate myself on laptops for the last month. I have been trying to get a good deal, good specs and fingerprint scanner.
This laptop has surpassed my expectations. Even though i was very skeptical about a "refurbished" Laptop this seems brands new! It was shipped quickly and packed in the box neatly with LOTS OF BUBBLE WRAP! I would definitely buy this laptop! Very,Very happy with Newegg

Cons: size,

5 out of 5 eggsGorgeous Smooth Sleek Laptop!

Pros: 17" gorgeous true color screen, backlit keyboard, 1TB HDD, 4 x3.0 USB Ports, Sleek, Stylish, Quiet, Powerful, Fast, Solid, Smooth Running;

Cons: None aimed at this laptop...it looks and works smoothly, very responsive...and for the price point best deal I've seen and glad I purchased! A con that applies to the OS generally...Windows 8 wouldn't update to 8.1; however, this is common problem and not isolated to this laptop...I'm running 8 with Pokki Start Menu and the HP pre-installs...no significant difference from 8.1...win 8 can be run much like win 7 once streamlined a bit and dismiss bloatware...

The other simply that newer laptops generally don't have expansion slots and so my 16 track firewire audio interface has no future at least with laptops...

Regardless, no cons aimed at the 'Envy' , very pleased with this laptop!

Other Thoughts: All this at excellent price point and shipped fast by excellent shop Newegg! Loving this laptop and much appreciated the price...refurb is like new! After my primary laptop died, in the interim had two others different brands prior to this one - first had terrible blue haze across screen and second just weak with smaller screen for close to same price...returned those and bought this...process took time reinstalling etc...but well worth it as this has it all!

5 out of 5 eggsRefurbished Treasure under $600

Pros: - Clean, sleek look. HP symbol chromed
- Beats Audio, Pre-installed Windows 64bit, Netflix, Skype, Norton Anti-virus for 3 months
- Lightweight for the 17'' screen size
- Fingerprint identification
- HP coolsense keeps the laptop cool during long use
- 1TB HDD, 8GB RAM

Cons: - It's hard to find a laptop case or backpack case for a good price for a 17" screen laptop
- HP has a lot of bloatware and apps installed on it. But you can uninstall

Other Thoughts: This refurbished treasure came in a very secure HP box marked "refurbished". I could not tell that it was used at all. There was one ding on the side, but it's hardly noticeable (have to be looking for it). I am just astounded that not more people are buying this gem.

4 out of 5 eggsGood laptop for the money!

Pros: I have logged about 12 hours on this laptop so far. Have had no problems. Win8 sucked at first. After some getting used to, and the Start8 program, Win8 is not that bad.
Lots of power for the money. I'm not a fan of Beats (Dr. Dre, Which this laptop has), but it sounds OK.

Cons: There are only 2 cons I have found so far. One is HP's "bloatware". But I know HP is known for that. Nothing you can't uninstall.
The only other negative is the lack of a page scrolling option typically found on the extreme right side of the touch pad. As far as I can tell, you have to scroll webpages with the arrow keys unless you are using a mouse.

4 out of 5 eggsmay need to update WIFI driver

Pros: screen size HD size

Cons: windows 8

Other Thoughts: WIFI driver was not correct and WIFI did not work at all. Its an Intel chipset on this one (you need to check as there are others) updated it and it worked great.
