"Best laptop I've ever owned"5.0 starson by senator_g
Pros: Blazing fast processing, quick startup, excellent build quality, screen quality with excellent viewing angles, and great sound quality. The volume and mute buttons are nie touches. The inclusion of Adobe software was also a nice touch
Cons: A bit heavy (I wouldn't want to carry it around in a backpack for very long); touchpad is not great, and charger is pretty big.
Summary: I bought this laptop because the screen on my cheapo compaq finally fritzed out. In my search I wanted a laptop with high quality build and components for around $1,000. Although I have previously owned a macbook pro and was very happy with it, it lost to the ENVY because of price and components. I have not been disappointed with my choice. As to the charge that the ENVY is a macbook poseur: 1) who cares, and 2) why would I pay $700-$800 more for a laptop with similar build quality and lesser components?
