Reviews for the HP Envy 15-1110ea
Source: PC Advisor
The HP Envy 15-1110ea is a beautiful laptop which oozes quality and comes with plenty of stylish design touches. Its more powerful and better equipped than the more expensive Apple MacBook Pro that it imitates, but its quad-core processor could prove overkill for many of us, making it hotter and shirt-lived off the mains.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5830: The HD 5830 is a slow clocked HD 5850 without GDDR5 support. Because of the 128 Bit memory bus, the used (G)DDR3 should be the bottle neck of this card.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
720QM: The Core i7-720QM is the slowes Core i7 Quad Core in 2009 and clocks between 1.6 and 2.8 GHz (due to the Turbo Mode). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 720QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
