HP Envy Touchsmart Laptop : AMD FX Special Edition APU : It's awesome!11:53 AM
A couple of year's ago, we bought our Teenagers new laptops. They love to play games and Chris and I love to watch movies. As it turned out, I did not do quiet enough research and the laptop's we bought the kids would not play the games they like to play, they were basically just a good laptop for schoolwork and Social Media. Now that they are working , they have all decided to get new laptops for gaming and they actually have fallen in love with my HP envy Touchsmart Laptop.
Are you a big gamer or love to watch movies on your laptop? Then this is the best laptop for your money. I am in love with mine. It has some amazing features. I expected it to be hard to get used to the touchscreen because I really have not spent much time using my tablets except for reading, but I have found it to be so much easier than scrolling back and forth or side to side.
I love the fact that this AMD FX APU – HP Envy Touchsmart Laptop also comes equipped with Beats Audio as well as the AMD Quad-Core FX-7500 Processor which makes gaming, movies and audio streamline so much faster and with much more clarity. I am talking, in my opinion Big Screen TV quality when watching movies. We would previously just use an HDMI cable and hook my laptop up to the TV but now, the quality is so good on the HP Envy Touchsmart that most times we end up now just watching straight from the laptop.
HP Is such a trusted brand and I have been using them for all of my Tech needs for a long time now. One thing that hasn't changed about Technology since I worked in the field is that you cannot go wrong with any HP product especially when it comes to Laptops and desktops.
Have you tried out Windows 8.1 yet? It takes some getting used to but I love the way you can easily navigate through the different programs and it has a lot more to offer than the previous versions of Windows as well. You can use your touchscreen just like a mouse and keyboard to customize your start screen and programs, or, if you are like me and like the way the old windows looked, you can even switch it back to the old look.
I love the built in camera on this as well. The camera is a Built-in HP TrueVision HD webcam with dual-array digital microphone. I do a lot of video's and always had to use a different webcam than the one on my older laptop, so I gave this one a try and it is pretty awesome. I can easily do my video's on here and everything sync's up. To give you an example, I did a video using the camera on my old laptop and my mouth was moving but my words were about 8 seconds behind the actual video, so I never used it again. This one is spot on and I love that it's easy to Skype as well using this camera. Skype was loaded when I got this one, so all I had to do was sign in.
My kids are all big gamers as I stated above, and I had heard how great this was for gaming so I let them download one of their favorite games that the laptops they have would not even play. They started begging for my laptop at that point ,because not only did it play the games they wanted but the quality and speed was amazing. With AMD Radeon R7 graphics and 6 gb memory, they said the games they played on steam actually ran faster on my laptop than they do on one of my son's gaming Desktops. It has 1366 x 768 HD resolution and it makes your games come alive on screen. This actually has Award winning graphics!

I now spend the majority of my time using my HP Envy Touchsmart instead of my desktop, because With everything the HP Envy Touchsmart has on it and the speed of the processor and graphics, I no longer have a need to run back and forth between two different computers for work and play.
This Hp Envy Touchsmart also comes with a 750 gb Hard-drive , which means you have tons of space for movies, pictures and more. I take so many pictures and I always end up having to put them on disk or a flash-drive about twice a year to clear space from my desktop, which means when I need one to post I have to go searching through flash-drives or Cd's. However,now, with this much space on the hard drive, I can save all my favorite movies as well as keep tons of pictures right at my fingers.
Now, seeing the laptop , I bet you are thinking it must be heavier with all of those extra's already added, but it's actually very lightweight. It weighs 6.1 pounds. I took my husbands older laptop and weighed it and it weighed 9.7 pounds..and when I say older I simply mean about 2 years old. What a difference technology has made in bringing us higher end components yet a more lightweight laptop with this HP Envy Touchsmart.
The Hp Envy Touchsmart also has Dragon Voice capabilities and when you get this laptop exclusive at best buy it also comes with bonus items including an AMD A10/FX Eligible Game - PC [Digital Download Add-On] as well as Webroot Secure Anywhere - 3-Device - 1 Year Subscription - Mac/Windows [Download]. I actually love using Webroot as my virus and security protection on all of my computers.
With three of my kids going off to College in the Fall, I think we are all pretty sold on getting them this HP Envy Touchsmart. It will handle everything from the school work to the game playing and take up much less room than a desktop , plus not to mention it's lightweight enough they can carry it around with them without feeling like they are carrying a load of bricks in the messenger bags.
