While we didn’t test this exact laptop we tested its near-identical HP Envy series sibling. In our HP Envy 17 review, we liked its minimalist design and comfortable keyboard. Our review unit’s 10th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU had no issues running 40-plus Google Chrome tabs and five 1080p YouTube videos without lag. We expect this laptop’s 11th Gen Intel chip to be on par with multitasking performance.
At 5.2 pounds and 16.3 x 1.0 x 10.7 inches, the HP Laptop 17 is fairly light for a 17-inch notebook.
