Fantastic laptop, really happy with this particular purchase. Fantastic laptop, really happy with this particular purchase. The backlit keyboard is super cool and an alround good product. Came and automatically quickly updated to windows 10. Came with some nice unexpected additions including cyberlink powerdirector (video editing software).
Great value for money all-in-one. . Edit: i began to have issues with the wi-fi, but only when the laptop was unplugged, however i’ve found a fix for the issue and i’ve not had the problem again – this is what fixed it for me – and i’m fairly sure that it will fix it for everyone else as welli had the same issue – here’s what worked for me:1: right click on the windows button2: select control panel3: select system & security4: select power options5: (do the following for both balanced & power saver) select ‘change plan settings’6: click on ‘change advanced power settings’7: click wireless adapter settings >power saving mode >change to ‘maximum performance’ (for both balanced & power saver battery modes)hey presto, you should now stop losing connectivity to wifi when not plugged inend editan absolutely fantastic laptop for the price, feels nice and premium thanks to half the body being metal (the underside is plastic) the screen is fine, the keyboard is good, the trackpad is ok (although a little squirrely once or twice) and i haven’t had any of the wi-fi issues that some other people have reported. Sound wise, it’s got some decent speakers and in terms of speed, well i haven’t had any issues and i use it as an everyday/work laptop that get’s put through it’s paces. You won’t really have to worry so much about multitasking either as it’s snappy enough, although it can run a little slow every now and again if you’ve got 20+ tabs open in chrome, but i wouldn’t exactly call that a failing. All in all, very happy with the laptop, i’d give it an 8/10, but for the price?. It’s certainly a very good value-for-money buy. If you do happen to have wifi issues, you can simply buy a little usb wi-fi dongle, they cost about £15 and are usually as good/better than what you’ll get in your standard laptop, and are a great way to get around any wifi issues you may have with this laptop (not that i can report any).
I’m loving this laptop, had it a few weeks, even after reading about the wifi issues. I’m glad to say i haven’t experienced any of such issues, and that the wifi might take a few minutes to connect on the odd occasion because it’s simply testing the security of the network. But yeah this laptop is working great for me, it’s fast and does absolutely everything i want it to with complete ease. Here are the specifications for the HP ENVY 13-ab005na 13:

A good budget laptop that’s a solid all rounder and great. A great budget laptop that’s a solid all rounder and great value for money. Many people have experienced wi-fi connectivity problems with this model and we had it too – but it’s easily fixed through the windows power options (thus preventing the wireless adapter going into ‘power save’ mode which doesn’t work with our wireless access point). We’ve had this machine for a week and it’s been excellent so far. Very happy with our purchase.

A well built machine for a bargain price. Microsoft / hp have recently lent me an hp envy laptop for review. I appreciate being able to use this loan unit but that has not influenced my opinion of the device itself or of microsoft/ hp. This is my personal view and hp/ microsoft have no influence either directly or indirectly on my opinions. Initial impressions are good although the overall weight is greater than i expected. I’m typing this on the envy now and i am having no problem with the keyboard. The spacing seems fine and the keys travel well if a little free-moving. First thing was to remove mcafee- i have decided to rely on windows defender for this trial. Next was to go online and to office. Com and start writing this review in onenote online.
The core i7 means it can handle everything it is also a very attractive laptop and has better processing power than most of the. The other reviews can be misleading as they are talking about another laptop. However my laptop with 8gb ram 512gb ssd storage is fabulous. The core i7 means it can handle everything it is also a very attractive laptop and has better processing power than most of the macs that cost over a grand.
