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":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

3.3 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
