Reviews for the HP Envy 17-3270nr

80% HP Envy 17-3270nr 17.3-inch Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Even with its fairly dated design now, the HP Envy 17 has a bit more appeal since Apple has dropped its 17-inch MacBook Pro. While it still isn't the thinnest on the market, it is fairly compact for a 17-inch laptop but still packs a lot of performance regardless of what it might be used for. The peripheral connectivity has been greatly improved over past versions and the Radiance display offers one of the best pictures possible.

AMD Radeon HD 7850M: Slower clocked 7800M series graphics card based on the desktop Cape Verde chip (GCN architecture in 28nm).

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

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.  


3610QM:

An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1100 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

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.

80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
