HP Envy 4-1002TX is ok...not great
by Anurag Mohanty on 2012-10-31
I purchased this from HP world as it was not listed in flipkart...service wise flipkart is the best. At flipkart, shipment of the product is very quick and it's always in delivered with a good packaging :).
As far as specification of Envy 4-1002TX is concern...it's quite good but at the same time the price is simply too high in india....same envy series with backlit keyboard and better specification in US is priced around(650 - 750$) 35000 - 39000 indian rupees. After using it for more than 1 week...below are my observation
Expandable memory is 16GB which is really good for virtualization
The dedicated graphics is 2GB...good for gaming
Harddisk is making noise like old day laptop though it's a SATA 6GB/s. Biggest problem is, the hard disk is a 7mm thin and the max capacity is 500 GB...there is no way to upgrade it to higher size as currently 500 GB is max capacity available for 7 mm thin hard disk.
Battery back up is around 3 hours in normal operation
Look is ok....not that great with what price HP is charging
So in overall...i would say as far as price is concern it's a good idea to check similar model from apple or samsung before making any quick decision to pay this much amount for a laptop.
Please only consider certified buyer's feedback...looks like some sales persons are creating fake id's and giving positive feedback...even though the product does deserve it.
Thank you and happy shopping :)
simply great for both (linux+windows)

i purchased this product nearly a year back on 9 september 2012, in 55k before going to my college for my first year i used it only for gaming i played games like bf3,crysis3,fifa,nfs2012 etc , the graphics were great but there was only a little lag sometimes so for gaming i give it 3.5/5
i my second year i used it for programming so i dual booted it with ubuntu13.04 the only problem i faced was the heating problem which is a ubuntu kernal problem but my lapi performed awesomely(in comparison to my dell xps) redard less of kernal problem so i am giving it 5/5
i am giving point wise detailes below:
1.battery:-4-3 hours(gaming,movies),6 hours(for internet browsing),2hours(ubuntu.13.04)
2.graphics:-2gb redon hd 7670 is quite old now so 3.5/5
3.heating:never gets heated for general purpose,during gaming gets heated in a hour so 5/5
4.sound/display:beats audio( name is enough),display is paper led which is not good as retina display(samsung and apple are providing) so 5/5 for audio,4/5 doe display
5.weight: 1.7kg wow 1.7 kg in just 55k great, so 5/5
6.processor: i5,1.7ghz nice for a college student but for a professional 1.7 is quit older now
overall this is the best choice i have ever made i have used apple, dell but this is far good than xps,macbook

I have bought this laptop after doing a extensive research .,.,. this one is perfect.
1 light weight
2 SSD cache which makes login,rebooting, wake up from sleep etc faster than other laptops.
3 Sexy look
4 Gamming laptop nd tat also in ultrabook.,.awesome.,.
1 VGA port is not thr.,.,but dont worry u wont need
2 Backlit keyboard would have been better.,.,but its thr in us version of this laptop.,. but i dont knw y they didnt give in indian version
Overall its feels great to have such a powerfull device in ultrabook form.,.,.
i would recommend to go for extra warrenty if possible.,.,since it has 2GB graphics card u will definitely go for big big games.,.,so if any prob happens in future u will have extended warrenty at tat time.,.,.,.,
The worst laptop I have used

Simply the worst laptop I have ever used. Works fine for the first year but after that it is a complete mess. Very slow, not meant for gamers. Its sound is pathetic. The battery is disgusting. Shows '0% Plugged in, Not charging' when kept for charging. As soon as I remove the charger, or switch the plug off, the computer shuts down. Takes ages to start again (starts only if it is plugged in). Doesn't remember the passwords for my WiFi and randomly drops connection. Highly not recommended. It gets really really hot after 20 minutes of gaming.
simply amzing, worth every penny

This laptop is the best laptops among ultabook, performance wise or it might be look wise, or by weight wise.. this laptop is the best. Yeh me too wanted a backlight keyboard bt anyways.
Guys make sure that you buy CarePaq for this laptop as mine was dropped few times and was broken badly, the body is very light weighted hence it is easily broken.
One more thing i would say, is that HP services are the best..they solve your case within a week( if a part is broken or damaged it will take a week more thats all)
IF anyone buying this laptop buy from HP store they will give you few complimentaries item.

this laptop is amazing in terms of its battery life and gpu....though the cpu clock speed is a bit low...still the pc works fine with the overwhelming gpu. it plays nicely with games like crysis 2 in medium specs

Purchased this PC from another dealer but this thing is a real piece of art. Beautiful, powerful and amazing battery life. It heats up while gaming but that's only when that happens. Quiet and cool in everyday tasks. Don't worry about the VGA Port, you could easily get a HDMI to VGA adapter. Finally, an ultrabook to game on. YEAAA

I bought this product from a local dealer as it was not in stock on flipkart and I got it in about a thousand bucks less with some hp accessories. When I opened the bundle and got to using it, I can say that it was a totally different experience altogether than using any other laptop. It was stylish, lighter, slimmer. Everyone around me appreciated it. The battery backup is coming out to be good, the booting, shutting and resuming windows is pretty fast. The keyboard is very comfortable to type with.
The only things which are setting my mood off are that it doesn't have a backlit keyboard and the default operating system provided is just windows 7 home basic. I feel it should be atleast home premium, if not ultimate. Rest all seems fine. The graphic card seems good for light games, the heavy ones are remaining to be tried by me.
Really a value for money i must say :)
