We checked 265 expert and user reviews for HP computers and found that on average HP has good ratings compared to other brands. We also found that HP has good ratings specifically for its medium processor core computers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on computers of this age and type.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This personal computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on medium processor core computers that are a similar age to it.
Very Big Hard Drive Capacity
Across all the medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ENVY 700 the hard drive capacity range from 320GB to 2TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 800GB. At 2,000 gigabytes, the ENVY 700 has a very big hard drive capacity compared to most of the other computers that were released more than two years ago.
Very Big Total Storage Capacity
Medium processor core computers that have been around for more than two years have total storage capacity of between 32GB and 2.3TB. At 2,000 gigabytes, the ENVY 700 has a very big total storage capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that were released more than two years ago.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
The HP ENVY 700 has a fairly big internal memory (12 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the ENVY 700. The average internal memory of similar spec PCs that were released more than two years ago is 8GB.
+5 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many PCs that are a similar age to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
Eight USB 2.0 Ports
The HP ENVY 700 is a eight USB 2.0 port desktop computer.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
5 Reasons Against
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of PCs of a similar spec and age to the ENVY 700 is 850MHz and the fastest is 1,300MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,100 megahertz, the ENVY 700 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other personal computers of this type and age.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on computers of this age and spec. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The ENVY 700 has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core computers that are a similar age to it. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this HP desktop computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this personal computer.
Quite Small L3 Cache
At only 6 megabytes, the ENVY 700 has a quite small L3 cache compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar type and age to the ENVY 700. Across all the similar spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as the ENVY 700 the L3 caches range from 2MB to 10MB, and the average L3 cache is 7MB.
+2 More reasons against
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
Medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the ENVY 700 have maximum turbo frequencies of between 1.3GHz and 4.4GHz. The HP ENVY 700 has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies (only 3.3 gigahertz) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
2 Other reasons to consider the HP ENVY 700
Released Over Two Years Ago
This HP computer was released over two years ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.1 gigahertz, the ENVY 700 has a pretty typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers that are a comparable age to the ENVY 700.
