80% HP Envy 17 (2012)
Source: PC Mag English
Media center laptops form an elite or premium category—we won't deny that the HP Envy 17 is pricey at $1,484.99, although it's more than a thousand dollars under Apple's MacBook Pro 17-inch. But in every respect from its keyboard to its performance to its Beats Audio, and most of all, its stunning screen, it's a hard laptop to resist, and an easy pick for our new Editors' Choice for media center portables.

HP ENVY 17 Review: A Great Entertainment PC
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The folks at HP like to call the ENVY 17 a "premium entertainment PC" and that's not a bad description of this sleek 17-inch notebook. The combination of a powerful Intel Core i7 processor, AMD Radeon graphics, 8GB of RAM and a 1080p display form the basis of a solid high-performance PC. But add the aluminum construction, backlit keyboard and amazing speakers with Beats audio and you've got breathtaking precision combined with performance.

80% HP Envy 17 (2012) Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The $1,484 HP Envy 17 deserves a standing ovation. In addition to a vibrant 17.3-inch 1080p display and superb audio, the notebook delivers a heady one-two punch in terms of performance and design. And just when you think it couldn't get any sweeter, HP throws in an Adobe software package and a Blu-ray DVD burner. While it won't satisfy hardcore gamers, the HP Envy 17 is a great choice for shoppers looking for a big-screen multimedia machine.

AMD Radeon HD 7690M: Essentially a renamed Radeon HD 6750M, the Radeon HD 7690M shares many of the same specifications but with slightly higher DDR3 memory clock rates

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.  


2670QM: Fast Quad-core processor clocked at 2.2-3.1 GHz based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.3": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

3.3 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
