I had an HP Envy laptop for a few years which worked perfectly for my needs. Unfortunately, the screen became damaged the computer cost more to repair than what it was worth. Since I needed a replacement ASAP, I started reviewing laptops. For the speed, memory, brand, and features such as DVD drive, webcam, etc - this was the best value.
Very light weight, large hard-drive size, quality processor, nicely designed, large screen size, good battery life, and 10-key numeric pad.
Audio. I feel it is very low. However, I am comparing this laptop to my old laptop which had Beats Audio so it is not apples to apples.
Internet speed. Sometimes it seems a bit sluggish but that may be due to my internet connection and not the computer itself.
Overall, the laptop works great. The only let down really has been the audio. I could have spent more money for more quality audio but honestly, you have to consider your use of the laptop. I primarily use my laptop for work (healthcare) and some personal surfing. If you're someone who constantly plays music from your laptop or movies, you may want to consider spending more for better audio.
