Also, battery life is nowhere near 12 hours!
I bought this last year for £999 direct from HP with free 3 yr care pack. However my version has 128gb ssd and 1tb HDD and also got the stylus with it. Be warned of the hinges!! Mine had very light use but after 14 months the hinge broke through the front bezel! This is due to poor design where the hinge has been attached to plastic inside the screen/bezel and eventually breaks as it's plastic. Issue was fixed due to being under warranty (and fixed well!). That being said, this is a beautiful laptop but look up LEFT HINGE DAMAGE on YouTube or Google. Many people have had the same issue and often been fobbed off by HP.
I had the one on pre-order from Amazon too, but having spoken to them yesterday it doesn't look like they'll actually be 'getting stock'. Agree that there are so many good offers on at the moment but can't decide on whether to go for this or not. Does anyone know if the HP envy range build quality is better than most others on the market? Also any comment on the 3 cell battery?
Darn, it doesn't come with the digital stylus! I am still waiting on the Amazon purchase a month ago! Given that this is available in other stores like Microsoft, I'll hold my breath a bit longer till I drown...
