“A lemmon?”

Thought I was getting a great PC from a great company. Was initially surprised that it took about 3 weeks or more to be delivered. I needed it quick but HP did not advise me of the delayed delivery until after my order was complete. Once I g… Read more

Hardware and Design

This specific review unit comes packing with incredible specs. There's an Intel Core i7 3770S quad-core processor clocked at 3.1GHz, accompanied by 12GB of DDR3 RAM and a 3TB Seagate hard drive. Graphics-wise, we're looking at an NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M with 2GB of memory, which provides fast, middle-class performance in case you ever get caught playing any kind graphics-intensive title on your new touchscreen PC. Other than that, there's Beats Audio integration, which provides three internal speakers along the bottom, as well as boosts performance for any speakers plugged into the audio jacks. You also have a slot-load Blu-ray drive on the right side. Of course, you also can't forget about the 23-inch 10-point touchscreen display with a 1920×1080 full HD resolution.
As far as ports go, you have two USB 3.0 ports on the left side, along with a SD card slot and microphone and headphone jacks. On the back, there are four USB 2.0 ports, ethernet, and a nifty subwoofer-out port that allows for deeper sound out of the relatively puny speakers that are equipped with the ENVY 23 TouchSmart. Then, on the right side, there's a lone HDMI port for connecting to an Xbox 360, PlaySation 3, or any other HDMI-capable device that can use the computer as a monitor or display.

As far as the placement of all the ports, I have to say that it's all pretty scattered. It's nice to have two USB ports, the SD card slot, and the audio jacks on the side for quick and easy access, but having the HDMI port all by itself on the right side doesn't quite make sense — it seems it would make better sense if it was with all of the other connectivity options on the back. We're also not sure why HP didn't include more USB 3.0 ports on the back. Those with a USB 3.0 external hard drive may be disappointed by this, since you'll be stuck with plugging it in on the side and having a USB cable stick out the whole time.

Software
As far as software goes, there's actually not a lot of bloatware. There's obviously a few HP-specific apps — some you may find useful, and others just an annoyance. The company pre-installed their "Connected" Photos and Music apps, both of which are HP's own version of a photo manager and music player, respectively. Connected Photos is powered by Snapfish, and it not only lets you manage and organize your photo collection, but it also integrates with Facebook and you can easily push your smartphone photos to the app as well. The music player is HP's own version of iTunes of sorts. You can manage and play your music, as well as browse popular music and even buy tracks right from the app. We're not sure that most users would utilize these two apps, since there are far superior options out there, but the choice is there nonetheless.

Performance
The computer comes with top-tier specs all around, so most users won't have a problem with performance — the 3TB hard drive will hold plenty family photos and videos, as well as all the music you can think of. The processor is fast enough that apps open quickly, and nothing lags behind, which is great for those older folks that can't stand anything slower than the Millenium Falcon at light speed. Benchmark scores from Geekbench were actually really decent, and it scored better than most of the newer all-in-ones that we've reviewed in the recent past, including Acer's Aspire 7600U, which has a higher price tag, and it even beat out Apple's newest iMac, although just barely. The ENVY 23 TouchSmart even kept right up with HP's Z1 Workstation, which carries a hefty price tag of $2,700.
