The HP Envy 17 has a quad-core Intel Core i7-1065G7 processor and Nvidia GeForce MX330 graphics. It has a thin profile, but it still weighs a not-insubstantial 6 pounds (2.7 kg) The touchpad and keyboard feel quite nice, and there's a standalone fingerprint sensor.

The Envy 17 transcoded a 4K video to 1080p on our HandBrake benchmark in 22 minutes and 23 seconds. On our Dirt 3 benchmark, the Envy averaged 105 frames per second, which flies over the 65-fps premium laptop average. The machine continuously surfed the web over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of brightness for only 6 hours and 12 minutes.

The Envy 17 runs quietly even under load, to the extent that we can hardly hear it unless we are in a quiet room. Surface temperatures on our review unit reach only 27.4 °C at idle and 42.6 °C under load. The 512 GB Intel SSD delivered acceptable read and write speeds in the benchmarks that we conducted, the results of which you can view below. The GeForce MX250 has 2 GB of VRAM, but HP also sells a 4 GB version.

Pros
  • Matte IPS display

The HP Envy 17 cg1356ng is equipped with an Nvidia GeForce MX450. This is suitable for 3D applications with medium demands on the graphics performance. With a noise level of up to 46.6 dB(A), the fans can become quite loud. In our realistic WLAN test, the HP laptop achieves a battery life of almost 8 hours.

Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
The HP Envy 17t's screen is a fair bit bright than most other 17-inch multimedia laptops. Black levels are good at 0.34, making for good contrast. Response times are reasonable for an IPS display and there is no PWM. While the display is fairly bright, its glossy glass makes it difficult to see the screen in sunny conditions.

Pros
  • Bright 4K display

  • Good system performance
Cons

The HP Envy 17 is a decent desktop replacement laptop. Its bulk and its build quality shouldn't be issues if it spends most of its time on your desk. It offers typing comfort, an excellent optional 4K display, and adequate performance and connectivity. If big-screen performance is what you're after, you can get more bang for your buck by choosing a 17-inch gaming laptop.

Pros
  • Sleek, minimalist design
  • Solid keyboard and touchpad
  • Optional 4K display
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • No Thunderbolt 3 port

Reviewers from pcworld have found the following***:
The HP Envy 17t's 55Whr battery is tiny for a laptop of this size. It's no match for a 17-inch display at 4K resolution. The fingerprint reader is also a bit of a letdown. At $1,590 as reviewed, it is more affordable than Dell's XPS 17.

Pros
  • Sleek design
  • Large 4K screen

Cons
