Re: HP Envy featuring The 6th Gen FX-8800P

Not to say that it's a bad laptop. It's wonderful for the everyday user. Just not for Power users.

Re: HP Envy featuring The 6th Gen FX-8800P

Agreed. I'm just frustrated that HP consistently do things like hobble the RAM configuration (slow RAM, and not using dual-channel configurations... 6 GB may sound great but mixing sticks of 2 and 4 will make it run in single-channel mode), not replacing hard drives with SSDs, and skimping on the cooling, absence of Freesync, etc.

A good laptop could have been great...

And then that Laptop would cost alot more.....

This isn't the only Carrizo laptop to exist and it does what it's meant to do in its price range.

Re: HP Envy featuring The 6th Gen FX-8800P

I realise this is old news, it's been 6 months and it's too bad the 15w laptops are everywhere. The OEMs reuse carrizo-I boards so most are single channel and capped at 1600mhz (b/c of tdp) the only 35w I've seen so far was Lenovo y700 (TOO BIG) but it had a dgpu . I'd like a 15inch 35watt with the correct ram speeds and it would be awesome. As it is now I'll just wait till 2nd half to see what green's got going for them and pay a bit more.
