4 out of 5 eggs11months later, will not turn on

This review is from: HP ENVY 17-j160nr Leap Motion and Beats Audio Intel Core i5 4200M (2.5GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB hybrid hard drive (1TB 5400RPM + 8GB NAND) HDD 17.3" Touchscreen Notebook Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: Sound is decent, processor is decent (tbh, buggy at times), display is nice, battery life was adequate

Cons: Touch display is inaccurate, can not highlight, nor scroll down the sidebar in full screen, the leap motion sensor is inaccurate, the touchpad/mouse is inaccurate, sometimes unresponsive, there have been some times where the C kinda just wants to restart on its own, no, they aren't annoying updates..

Other Thoughts: We shall see how awful or great this warranty process is, I will update.. right in the beginning of school, it crashes, kind of throwing a big monkey wrench into my life atm...

I'd recommend it,it would have been better if the touch screen worked better, the sound was a bit louder, and things were more responsive.. proggs like Mozilla and Chrome, basic proggs continuously had buggy operation with this computer.
3.5/5 didn't meet my expectations, maybe they're too high, but I'm a true PC person..

4 out of 5 eggsFirst computer since 2008

This review is from: HP ENVY 17-j160nr Leap Motion and Beats Audio Intel Core i5 4200M (2.5GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB hybrid hard drive (1TB 5400RPM + 8GB NAND) HDD 17.3" Touchscreen Notebook Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: Great audio, easy to use touchscreen. Really like the light up keyboard. I have to say that the best feature of this computer is the finger swipe for the passwords. Makes turning on the computer that much easier because I do not have to enter my fancy password anymore.

Cons: Okay now for the LEAP. It is a fun option but not very functional. Even though the keyboard backlight looks awesome, the keyboard isn't as sensitive as I would like. Seems like I have to hit the keys a little harder than on my old laptop (which was an ACER).

Other Thoughts: For the price, this is a great computer. 1tb hard drive, touchscreen, upgradeable RAM to 16 with a 64 bit processor. Only wish I could have gotten the i7 for this price. But that is stretching it a bit. I did get the $100 dollar discount when I purchased so it was a little better in price that was is now listed.
