A large and trendy desktop replacement, the HP Envy 17 3D has a powerful ATI graphics, full HD display, Intel Core i7 processor, Blu-ray player, and a is 3D-capable. The price of HP envy 17 3D starts at $1,599 or $1,649 as configured. It is a good catch considering that the price of this 3D version is the same with that of the non-3D version of the same features. Just like the smaller Envy 14, the HP envy 17 3D has minimalist chic design with a hard taupe chassis that is made of aluminum and magnesium.
This premium laptop features a paisley-esque pattern of raised bumps on the lid and palm rest and HP’s glowing logo on the lid. The HP Envy 17 3D weighs only 7.5 pounds and this is quite reasonable for a notebook of its size. It has a maximum height of 1.5 inches which feels quite thick as compared to 0.98 inches of the Apple’s 17-inch MacBook Pro.
