HP ENVY 15t-j000 Quad Edition, good deal?

by adamz1111 / July 3, 2013 7:30 AM PDT

So I was looking for a laptop with a good processor and a decent graphics card, and my general thought was intel HD graphics suck. I looked up the HD 4600 on youtube, and a guy with the same processor(4th generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4700MQ), which seems super good, was playing BF3 and was running it smoothly. 4th of july sale puts this laptop at 650 instead of the usual 800. Deal seems great. I plan to upgrade the 8GB DDR3 to 12GB DDR3. Gaming wise, I just plan to play the highest tier games at low-mid settings. Games like League of Legends at the highest. Also, the processor would make web and multi application usage browsing super quick. Any comments or rebuddles about this laptop. Thanks much guys.

Seems like everything is going cheap now.

So if I ignore HP for the moment a fail deal. However since HP did not honor the warranty on my last HP (yes, it was my last HP) I always mention when folk ask me about that brand.

The laptop arrived and we found a bug in the machine (the BIOS to be more precise) and HP have me on the phone for 8 hours as they tried this and that. The machine was finally shipped back and when it came back it was worse with lockups in 5 minutes. Further calls ended with "we've done all we could." That's at 3 months old and I had a dead HP laptop (USA if you want to know.) After another 6 months of responding to surveys about the service (did you like us?, did we fix the problem) and more calls I called it quits. It was clear that HP's warranty is untrustworthy to an outright lie.

Sorry, but even now, I won't go near them.

Sorry for the typo.

I meant fair deal not a fail deal. But the rest sums it up for me. If they can't fix their own gear, no reason to go near them.
