3.0 out of 5 stars I ALMOST bought one until..., 14 Dec. 2013
By 
This review is from: HP Envy 15-j024sa 15.6-inch Laptop (Intel Corei7-4700M 2.4GHz Processor, 8GB DDR3 RAM, 1TB HDD, 5400rpm, NVIDIA GeForce GT740M, Integrated Webcam, Windows 8 ) (Personal Computers)
I realised it's NOT an HD display - it's a regular 1366x768 display

It's a good spec otherwise - good CPU, touch display, etc, but the screen resolution just doesn't do it for me

The reason it's not got a 1080p screen is because it's GPU doesn't have enough power to run modern games at 1080p with fluent frame rates. It's better that it doesn't have a 1080p screen because it will just about manage running modern games at that resolution. If it had a 1080p screen you would need to reduce the resolution anyway to play modern games and that would cause horrible up scaling artefacts.

@G. Wilson
I appreciate that there may well be good reasons for not having a full HD screen. That's not the problem.
The problem is that the page implies the laptop does have a full HD screen, yet does not anywhere specify what the actual resolution is (it's 1366x768, same as most 15.6" screens).
Other HP Envy Touch 15 laptops do have full HD, so this page is confusing for customers, not all of whom will bother to find the full specs for this model (j024sa) and realise it's not full HD.
It's misleading.

As to this laptop not having a full HD display, the extended description mentions 'full HD (optional)' which relates to an enhanced version at a higher price. That and similar optional upgrades such as a faster processor, more RAM, larger hard drive etc, are quite common among most PC manufacturers and it is up to the buyer to find the model most relevant to their needs. The 1366x768 screen is perfectly usable and satisfies most laptop users as it the most common choice and used to save the expense of full HD which most would not use to maximum advantage.

The NVidia GT740M is a popular graphics card across many higher spec laptops and is a good general choice. It can happily accommodate many games as, if you download and install a driver update pack direct from NVidia, it will make perfectly clear during installation.

If the laptop meets your needs in all other respects, do not allow these minor points to divert you.
