The HP Envy is the SUV of laptops
If there’s one thing you need to understand about laptops, it’s this: Portability will cost you. Want proof? Look no further than the HP Envy TouchSmart 17 (MSRP $999.99), a fully loaded desktop replacement that costs less than an entry level MacBook Air. This big guy comes with a smattering of excellent specs, including a quad-core Intel i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, 1TB of hard drive space, a CD/DVD drive, a full-HD touchscreen, and even a fingerprint scanner. For $999, this is a lot. In fact, for the same price, you can get HP’s Spectre 13 ultrabook, which has a weaker processor, half the RAM, and a fraction of the storage space, but does have portability.
