Reviews

“A big brother to HP’s 13-inch Envy 13, this upscale 15-inch model crams more computing power into a midsize laptop than anyone outside of Alienware’s m15x. And while that system is a 10-pound monster, the Envy 15 manages to be both slim and reasonably lightweight, partially by ditching the internal optical drive–an unusual move for a larger laptop.” (CNET, 2009)

Reviews

“This laptop is very good if you think of its low price. And it even has a few things other more expensive laptops don’t: personalization and Wireless. If you think of its price you will realize that this is a very good deal. I will give it a rating of 3 out of 5 stars. To conclude this review, if you are on a budget, this laptop is perfect for you!
Although not the best in its class, featuring an Intel Pentium T4300 processor, 2 GB of DDR2 RAM, a Wireless-G Card, and an an Intel 4500M Media Accelerator, the HP G71t is a good laptop. It lacks some power, DDR3 compatibility, and a standalone graphics card. However, for under $570, this is a bargain! This HP G71t review was created to show you both the good and the bad parts of this laptop.

Reviews

“For a laptop with a 2.13GHz SL9600 low-voltage Intel CPU, the Envy 13 performed admirably, coming close to matching the performance of Apple’s 13-inch MacBook. An ultrathin system like Dell’s Adamo, which uses an older U9300 processor, was much slower, highlighting the importance of finding the right balance between performance and power management. In anecdotal use, we found the Envy 13 to be quick and responsive, and it likely benefited from skipping Windows Vista in preference of Windows 7.” (CNET, 2009)
