Thanks for posting. I’ve added the price and merchant to the title.
Here’s a ‘Help’ link which gives tips and advice on thread posting.

thanks i thought id done that, doh!
Is this a top enough spec to run adobe Lightroom
I would have thought it would have no issues with lightroom, decent cpu and plenty of ram, but as will all computers these days it should have an ssd

Is this a top enough spec to run adobe Lightroom




I'd go Intel for light room personally.
Is this powerful enough to edit 4k video? Thanks
And does it have a glossy or matt screen? Thanks!

​better off with Intel i
no need to have radiator during winter with this AMD laptop
No mention of it being an IPS screen Vital if you're into photography, not necessarily vital for everyone else though.
Excellent specs for the price!

Is this powerful enough to edit 4k video? Thanks



Not even close, this processor gets a score of about 3500 on Passmark (which is plenty for most uses) but not nearly enough for video editing. (You want something with an i7 which actually has 4 cores, i7-6700HQ or some such which score around 8000) and a decent dedicated graphics card.

That said, 4k video editing would probably work just be slow. (I mean it also depends on what exactly you want to do.) also I guess it would be good to have a decent 4k monitor to actually see what you are doing... (but you can go externally, where this would be limited at 30fps probably).

If you want proper 4k video editing you are looking to spend a decent amount more than this...

​better off with Intel i



Based on what?

This beats 6th gen i3U and is not much worse than 6th gen i5U.

Battery life?

Thank you very much for your advice. It's actually just for short 4k clips taken on my mobile. As long as it works , even if it's slow, I don't mind at this price. Thanks again
SVP are doing one similar.. Ex demo stock with limited warranty for around £280 svp.co.uk/hp-…D=U

Should work fine. I think the other poster thought you want to run Adobe After Effects, 4K editing in AE would require a monster desktop setup.... .
I have this laptop. I hate it. It's fan is ridiculously loud. Even when I'm not doing anything on it. The screen is also rubbish.
Xela333 have you got any links for any high spec Intels that have a high enough spec for what I'm after as I haven't got a clue. Thanks

You've been suckered in by a noob - as if that guy is going to be editing 4K video.

I can count the number of people with 4K screens on one hand, and anyone doing serious 4K video work would buy a desktop which will be vastly more powerful than a laptop costing x4 the price.

Just use the 4K video editor on your smart watch X)
You can't tell the difference between 1080 and 4k videos (unless standing really close or on a 80"+ screen) - especially ones recorded from a mobile phone. Also, a huge amount of content broadcast still isn't even 1080p - it's going to be a long time before 4K becomes mainstream!

I'd recommend sticking with 1080p - the only difference you're likely to notice is that your videos are 1/4 the filesize!
can you attach this to 65inch 4k TV and play bluray files/4k s etc?

​should have gone to specsavers mate... I see a mahooosive differance on my 55" 4k TV. the difference on a good video is night and day....

1080p and 4K - the difference is massive mate, so stop talking nonsense.

While the laptop is more than powerful enough it's only equipped with a HDMI v1.4 port which is limited to 4096*2160 24fps output . So ok for Blu Ray files & probably most 4K movies but no good for other 4K material. You'd need to find a laptop with DisplayPort or HDMI 2.0 for full 4K output.

IPS doesn't automatically mean colour accurate. You can get some very colour accurate TN panels, and since they don't suffer with IPS glow and backlight bleed as much, it can be a better option :-)

That's why I've stuck with my Betamax, it's all marketing rubbish unless you have your own iMax projector at 100"+

THANKS for taking the time to find this, post this, and update OP - have some much deserved heat! As you can probably tell by the heat - in the most part - everyone agrees with you.
Great deal.

Nice. What's the chances of being able to activate HP warranty (or extend it)?
Surely you'd spend £30 more and get the black edition with SSD and better GPU?

​thats what thought too, i expected that to get the most heat
Struggling on gprs data to find the one with 8gbSSD

​thats what thought too, i expected that to get the most heat



I guess the Envy is seen as more stylish with the backlit keyboard etc. This site is odd at times though, many members see a deal heating up and just add heat without looking.

15W tdp for this chipset but as an ex 8150 owner I was dubious also.


There's a lot of google talk of HP throttling performance to get that 15w figure on the higher AMD chipsets.
I have the Nvidia graphics i5 version of this and its a good laptop especially after I replaced the HDD with a SSD but then it obviously wasn't £399
