Customer ratings and reviews for ENVY 15z-j100 Notebook - Best Value

Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent laptop this is a very nice laptop for every day computing. i recommend this laptop to users who just do office work and every day computing June 8, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed When I bought this HP laptop, I was hoping for similar or better performance than my wife's 2 year old HP laptop, because we were and still are very happy with it. She has an AMD dual core A8 and this one comes with similar AMD, but quad-core and newer generation, with some more RAM as well. What a disappointment... Although using it mostly involves web browsing and other light applications. It got better when I replaced the default install of their anti-virus application (thanks for nothing, McAfee) and got rid of the bloatware, but it still is sloooow. I was expecting loud fan (similar to the wife's HP) which it does have. I don't want to blame too much on the hardware itself, because it's my first experience with Windows 8.1 and I'm unsure how taxing that OS is on the resources. I'm thinking about installing Ubuntu and updating this review later if Ubuntu performs faster. Unfortunately, I'll have to wait until I figure why (WHY???) burning the recovery DVDs always fail for the second out of 5!!! All in all, fairly disappointed, maybe because of software, maybe because of hardware, but the way it is now isn't fun at all. July 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Gaming Capabilities All i upgraded on this model was the gpu, i got the radeon 8750m discrete graphics. with the a8-5550m processor, It can run World of Warcraft on high, the elder scrolls online on high, pay day 2 on medium/high. All in all im super impressed. great buy, if you wanna game, this is the best option for the price 100%. It also shipped a day early, and arrived a day early. July 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Machine for the Price Excellent laptop. It was a massive upgrade from my 6 year old dual core AMD processor HP. The fan is extremely quiet and positioned very well to keep cool air coming in. I went with the integrated graphics and the APU can handle 3D rendering for molecular dynamics with no problem. single/dual core tasks push the cores to turbo, but they don't heat up and maintain speed. Most applications I run can use all 4 cores leading to excellent performance. The battery life has been good(4-6 hours) and the build quality is very nice. The aluminum body helps keep the computer cool. Jury is still out on Windows 8 June 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features, power, and looks I went back and forth trying to decide which Envy 15 to buy. I ended up with the 15z - j100 that featured the A10 processor, 8 gigs of RAM, 1TB hard drive, and the backlit keyboard as upgrades. I am really happy so far, it will stream Pandora, download updates, surf the web, and Sync all at the same time. The stock graphics are really, really good extended to a 32" HD monitor, and with headphones the Beats audio shines. The only thing I would have liked to have is bluetooth, but for the price (640$), I'm not even complaining. It's easy enough to get an external DVD/CD drive to make up for this unit not having one, but most software is available for download these days. This is my nicest computer so far. June 27, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by keyboard and mouse difficult to use The keyboard takes some getting used to. My wife doesn't want to use it. The keys are difficult for her to push. I have more trouble with the mouse. It is hard to depress and left click is only in one little corner. Try before you buy to see if it's right for you. The rest of the computer is well constructed and has good features. June 17, 2014
