    FYI, 33% coupon is working as of now. Coupon site says it expires today, though of course there may be a new one as of tomorrow. Just ordered an Envy 15 and the discount was substantial after radiance and ssd upgrades. Figure I can cancel or return it if the specs turn out to be disappointing.

    Does anyone know if I can order an Envy 15 from France?

    Can't seem to find any French site that sells it. :(

    Is there any way to confirm that the envy 15 1080p display is ips? I foolishly asked a customer rep only to read "what is ips?"

    My friends in the UK:

    Is this going to be available in the UK? I am moving there in two weeks and was wondering if you guys have heard or have experience from previous launches. Only the last gen stuff on HP UK site at the moment.

    Why there is no per-release review of this product?

    Thank you very much, I was signed in as a student so I guess it didn't like the code

    Go to: HP® Coupon Code, HP® Coupons, HP® Promo Codes

    The 33% coupon code worked for me purchasing the Envy 15, but doesn't seem to work for the Envy 17 (even though it's described as applying to any customized laptop). I haven't tried any of the others.

    Works on all (including 17 3d), except 17 normal. Any downside to getting 3d if you don't care for 3d in the least? As in, can I treat a 3d screen as a normal screen?

    None at all. With the 3D, you get the 120 HZ panel, so it refreshes faster. Even if you don't like the 3D...if you can get it for less than the vanilla 17...do it. Great machine!

    Wow, what kind of "release" is this. They don't even list the clock speeds of these supposed "new" cards.

    Same chips without a die shrink. This is re-badging as bad as I have ever seen from NVidia.

    I wonder how much higher the clocks could even be than the existing 6700 chips without 28 nm.

    Seems like the Envy 17 with a 7690 is actually going to be SLOWER than the existing version with a 6850m. Jesus this is a complete failure.

    NuB here.

    Just tried to configure a 15" but no slot-loading Blu-ray as an option. It was advertised to have this. Anyone know if they just haven't gotten around to adding it as an option? It's available on the 17" models.
