Win an HP Envy 15 Notebook!

HP Envy15 - rear leaft facing on white

By David Ponce

Yeah, you read that right. Christmas is early here at OhGizmo! and for one lucky reader it’ll really pay to read us. HP has kindly decided to giveaway one of their new Envy 15 notebooks and we’re going to make it really easy to win.

But first off, a little about this notebook.

· This is HP’s fastest consumer notebook and the world’s thinnest, lightest quad-core notebook PC.

· It offers maximum speed and mobility with the upcoming Intel® Core™ i7 Processor and up to 16GB of DDR3 1066 MHz system memory with four SODIMM memory slots.

· Versatile storage options include the ability to add two solid-state drives in a RAID-0 configuration to improve the overall speed of the ENVY 15 while providing ultimate disk performance.

· A choice of two 15.6” HP Brightview high-resolution LED backlit displays, including the Full High Definition LED HP Ultra BrightView Widescreen Display with up to 300 nit, provides the best display experience for a notebook in this class.

We aren’t sure about the final configuration on this one, but guys, it’s free so let’s not get picky.

So how do you win? Easy. Our regular readers might have noticed we’re making a push to get a community and commenting going on the site. With the amount of readers we have, we should have a lot more than we do. So this giveaway is another one along those lines. Simply leave a comment on this article telling us why you’d like to win this. And that’s it. Sadly, it’s US only, but we’re working on another giveaway that will be open to the world, so stick around, world. We’ll pick a winner by the 22nd, this week, and yes it’ll be randomly chosen. One entry per reader, and yes we’ll be checking to make sure. Finally, don’t fret if your comment doesn’t appear immediately, it’s just caught in moderation and will be released shortly.

Good luck!

    i would like to win because my laptop just broke.

  • charliehorse43

    Why would I want to win this. Why not. It is good to win.

    i would love to be able to publicly give this laptop away to one of the generous coders who hang out at donationcoder.com who spend their free time writing programs for people on donationcoder.com who couldn't afford to buy this for themself.

  • Jessicat

    I have always loved HP. My first computer I bought was an HP, lasted me 4 years. I loved that beast. Carried me through Junior High. I had a dell laptop and it overheated way to quickly. I haven't touched that ball of fire in forever. It was a graduation from high school present.

    This would be a great Christmas gift. When I'm not at my house, like visiting the parents and other adventures of the outdoors. I feel a pain in the heart when I know I can not check on the latest posts of OhGizmo and my other techie sites. I go through withdrawal and it isn't pretty.

  • Phlow

    I should win because my laptop is broken and I've been trying for years to win something from OhGizmo, way back to when I submitted my Mao Zedong watch for the weird watch contest, and I'm confident now is my time!

    I would like to put this computer into the mobile autonomous robot I'm working on for school. We need a powerful computer to crunch all of the mapping and planning data.

    I let my parents borrow my laptop for a few months and now the thing doesn't turn on at all… :( Not that my reason helps because you're choosing at random, but maybe this early Christmas will have a few less bah-humbugs.

  • chilepepper

    Come Mr. Tally man, tally me banana (and put in me in the drawing for this laptop).

  • fulltext

    I'd like to win this so I can get out of the house. I'm chained to my desktop pc. There are two public parks with wifi nearby if only I had a laptop to enjoy the fresh air.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Brian-Lawrence/512447160 Brian Lawrence

    I accidentally ran over mine with the work van. At first inspection I thought it had survived. Then I powered it up. The screen came alive with a mosaic artistic look. My work gave me a temporary tablet pc. It for whatever reason will not calibrate with a left handed user. So put my name in the hat for wining this new laptop!

  • blackhand

    Free? I'm in…feel free to add any other goodies if my post is chosen…with four boys in the house, it's impossible to maintain strict ownership of a machine. An extra one is just what we need…then I'll have no excuse to get all that extra work done I guess!

    Plus, they do call it Envy for a reason

    I'd like to win because I could use a more powerful mobile computer. I have an hp netbook now, and while it works well, I definitely crave more power. As a side bonus, I work as an HP rep at Best Buy on the weekend at a high volume store. So I'll be selling these each week. What better way to get first hand experience with the awesomeness of this machine than to win one! It'll help me convert!

  • goattuber

    I would like to win this so I could give it to my roommate. His motherboard crapped out recently, so I've been sharing my computer with him until he gets a new one. I'd like to have my rig back all to myself, and I'm sure he wouldn't mind having this laptop for a replacement.

  • YupYup

    I just started grad school this September and I'm pretty much broke. That doesn't change the fact that I need a powerful laptop to handle my work. I would absolutely love to have this thing.

  • nenriel

    I opted for a Macbook last time I bought a computer, and while I'm happy with it, it'd be nice to have a PC, especially an HP. My first computer was an HP Pavilion way back in 1995. Those were the days…

    long time reader first time poster, I ready ohgizmo everyday except the weekends well cause no one updates on the weekends and i have always refered my friends to this site for fun reading. I love HP products and am in need of a new laptop mine is getting a little grey and blad not to mention the sagging skin if you know what i mean lol anyway it would be a great christmas present thanks again and as always keep up the good work with all the new gizmos

  • Raj_Singh

    Why i'd like to win this laptop? Because things are tough. Business has been bad for my family, along with so many other things.

    I have 2 jobs, and go to University and i still can't seem to buy a notebook i like. Every time i get the money, something comes up and i have to end up paying bills and paying for other expenses. This would be the greatest Christmas present someone could ever give me. Recently my family has hit some hard times. We were doing so well before and because of the horrible economy. anything else that i make that is not bill related i have to end up giving to my parents. I don't stress over that though, my parents brought me into this world and i will do anything to make them happy. Sometimes someone can get happiness just from making others happy and i know that i am accomplishing this.

    Don't feel bad though, i am sure there are many people out there who should win this laptop but this why i feel i would like to take a shot to win, maybe some magic for Christmas.

    I'd like to win this for my dad, who severely needs a new computer.

    This would be a nice machine to compare to a MacBook Pro and a good lightweight Notebook for everyday use on the road if I Win

  • jackthompson

    I'd like to win because my mother poured a full glass of water into the keyboard of my 12″ powerbook and I figure a newer, faster, altogether sluttier machine that I would never dream of on the bus back home to visit my family at Christmas would help me get over the loss of the old, familiar, reliable one that I made the mistake of introducing to my mom.

    Ahem.

  • sycophantom

    I'd like to win the laptop because I'm off to college next year, and there's no way I can realistically lug around my 3-year old, sub-$400 Toshiba Satellite. My dad recently lost his job – and my sister is off at UCLA (out of state), so funds are a little tight.

  • http://twitter.com/Zachfersure Zach de Graaff

    Why would i like to win this you ask. Did Michelangelo use any regular paintbrush? well i dont know the answer but im sure he used the best available. Right now im using an old desktop that was not meant for personal use, it was a used machine that hospitals used to run tests. It still has no CD drive. only a floppy drive and a ZIP drive. Have you ever tried syncing 1000 songs to an ipod through a USB 1.1 connection? no quick feat. If i won this laptop, well, it would be the bees knees OhGizmo!

  • acetheI

    I hate these competitions. The no 1 reason is not because I can never win, since I'm outside the US, it's because it's so embarrasing to see the pathetic attempts at sucking up by the other readers.

    OhGizmo! is removed from my RSS feed after a long long time. So long.

  • gnonato

    i want to win this laptop because i don't have a computer at all! my friend broke my laptop on my birthday in may, so i can only use my moms' crappy old desktop in her room. =/ i still haven't saved up for a new one ever since!

    This would be great for my wife. The economy being what it is I can't really afford to get her all the things that she deserves and if I were able to present her with a new laptop for Christmast(or Veterains Day or next Tuesday) she would be overjoyed. It would give her a lot more freedom on where she can work on her research paper for school.

    Cheers.

    I would never be able to afford to buy the Envy 15 notebook so I would love to win it ;)

    I'm helping with a mini-DARPA challenge at Penn State. I could really use this laptop, because my task requires me to interface with an Arduino controlling the vehicle, and my current laptop has taken to freezing every time I look at it wrong. It'd be terribly convenient to have a programming-only laptop that actually works, and could even be used by the vehicle itself for other mapping functions.

  • mcman

    I think you guys were purposely holding this back. You were just waiting for my complaint so you could appease me. It was a big conspiracy wasn't it? I can see you now at one of your production meetings planning your move. Send that whack nut mcman those bucky balls. Once he's out of the way we can pull out the big time prizes.

    Well *snif*, I'm on to you *snif, snif*. I'm not going to cry. You'd like that wouldn't you? Make the 46 yr old looser cry. Listen up Oh Gizmo guys! If it weren't for me, you'd be nothing. Actually you'd probably still be rolling along but it wouldn't be the same. My comments are like a breath of fresh cheese and who doesn't like cheese? Big giant wheels of cheese rolling into your hearts.

    Frankly I have to admit that I couldn't survive without this site. Every day I rush to it like a kindred spirit or something similar. I know! you are like my mistress! If Oh Gizmo were a woman I'd be in love. Yes love, damn it! I'll yell it from the mountaintop! I love Oh Gizmo and I don't care who knows it! Do you hear me
    world?!

    OK, I seem to be running out of angles here. I think I have the vapors and a case of the screaming mi mi's. I'm beginning to tire and need a second windbag to come over me. I'm beginning to weaken and the only thing that might help is to draw energy from an HP laptop. If only…*cough, cough*….

    Clear! I said clear damn it! *doooooooop* *ZAP* *boop, boop, boop, booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo*

    NOOOOOOOOO! For the love of God, NO!!! Why didn't they just give him the HP?!

    He was the best darn commenter we ever had. OK, anyone hungry? I could go for some crackerjacks and tap water about now.

    Not only is my laptop huge, ugly, and heavy, but it's also gotten in a battle with one of my more curious friends. There are bite marks and scratches all over it. Any update, especially one so sleek looking, would be greatly appreciated.

  • Gustav Wind

    I despereately need to replace my compaq. I remember the old compaq “luggables” when we still booted of 5.25 floppies. So I get the unit from the shack 5 years ago and i'm wondering what happened to the inovative company that blazed that trail. Crappy touch pad, inconsitent controls, and weak performance for a power hungry system. A generally disappointing experience.

    To be honest, I just want a new laptop for free. But to be dishonest, my laptop broke, I lost all of my law school notes, finals are coming up quick, I need to rewrite a 30 page paper because my external HDD was lost, and a new computer would 1) make my day and 2) help me with my studies (i.e. gaming). Thanks!

  • kzemla

    my current laptop is approx 4 years old. I never use it because it takes 10 mins for it to boot up and ready to use. we are about to move into a new house away from the parents and we have no decent working computer to put into our new home. (not sure i can “steal” their working computers without them noticing.) hah we also have a super apple g4, but that is not even turning on, so one day we'll fix the mac g4, but right now we do not have the knowledge or the money to fix so i would gladly take this new laptop! Please help us make the new house a home with the addition of a working computer!!!

  • rblake42

    Why I should win the laptop:

    The laptop I am currently using is about 5 years old, every time I touch the left side of I get a nice little shock, which is really great for helping you wake up in the morning. Not to mention the fact that it is slow as molasses. Why not go buy a new you ask? I tried to buy a new laptop, had 31 days and it got knocked off of a table by my cat and broke the screen. One day out of warranty and my cheap little $300 laptop now needs about $120 in repairs. So my wife sits and uses her nice new laptop while I am stuck with an old piece of crap that was slow even when it was new. That is why I deserve to win it.

  • lizbn

    Windows 7 and battery life oooh I'd be living the high life!

  • Anonymous

    It looks cool…

  • Carpe_Diem

    There are several reasons I want this laptop:

    I've always wanted a laptop, but I'm too broke to actually buy one. I've been looking at this laptop for several months (since it's been anounced). It has a better than average graphic card (the 4830 is a lower clocked 4860, so it's basically a 4850), an i7, a relatively fast hard drive (7200 RPM) and a ton of ram. The screen also has a great resolution (1900×1200), and it's not too heavy (5 pounds).

    I play a lot of demanding games (STALKER, Crysis, World in Conflict, Bioshock, COD5…), and I move around a lot (I travel sevral times a year) to visit my father (my parents are divorced), where I don't have a computer. It would be too expensive to buy two computers with a very good graphic card on them.

    I also would need a laptop to take notes in my classes (more practial than using a notebook), and I also LAN COD4 and WIC+SA, which has pretty high graphical requirements.

    All this being said, I need a laptop that is powerful and at the same time not too heavy/easy to carry arround, which is exactly what this laptop is.

  • StratMan9000

    I would like to win because my brother is off at collage with a pretty bad laptop, and I would like to get this for him.

    I have a work laptop which means long battery, slow as all hell. I need something I can play on, dammit!!!

  • boltzst

    I've been needing an upgrade for a laptop since my piece o' crap Acer allows limitation on virtualizations. I have a need for multiple VM boxes and would love to give the i7 a go over with multiple VMs running at once. One for work mock-up, one for linux and one for testing, etc. I've been looking at Dell's Alienware offering until this beauty showed up in the blog world. If I received this piece of work, I would love to help thread a column on ohgizmo just for the sake of technical updates, what it can do and other various aspects of techy stuff. I'm an IT guy for JHUAPL…I have the street cred!

  • javajini

    I would like to win so that I would be the coolest kid on the block ;-).

    Seriously cool laptop. Can't wait for more details.

  • pher

    Recently jobless and returning to school, unable to afford a new laptop. This would go a long way, so c'mon luck, throw me a bone.

  • boquigley

    Because I think my HP laptop officially bit the dust last night. It's old, has had a lot of work and the soldering work is probably going to cost more than it's worth this time. It's my last semester of college and I am too dang broke to buy another one right now. Plus, it's the main way I keep in touch with my mom in Africa and my dad in Japan. Help an abandoned co-ed out!

    P.S. Bring back Fish Tank Fridays!

    I have never made a comment on gizmodo until the buckeyballs contest, i bought my friend a set for his birthday and they were awesome so when i seen the contest here i made an account and posted my comment, but before that ive always checked out gizmodo usually for all the cool new gadgets being created. but i never commented on them. the point of these contests from what ive read is to get people to comment more and it appears to be working because even after the contests are over i will continue to post what i think about the items here on gizmodo.

    I'd love to win this laptop, It's top notch hardware.
    I'd use it for work, I freelance and It'd be great to have a laptop to use instead of the under powered Lenovo work stations I've been working on.

    I'd make quite the impression bringing that puppy into the conference room and showing my work.

    I have a very good desktop computer but the problems is it isn’t portable. My laptop got broke because by accident I trow it to the floor; anyways it was very old (5 years) and slow, and that´s how I got my desktop computer.
    I would like to have a new computer because it can help me taking notes in the University. With a new laptop I can stay studying in the Library; in my home I have to many distractions so I waste a lot of time. Definitely it will improve my academical performance.

    Please, pick me ;)

    I would like it because it looks like a professional machine.

    But of course I would sit at work with it facing away from casual traffic playing MMOs all day.

    And it has juice that I can alt-tab and almost instantly get to a spreadsheet to look like I am busy :)

    I would like to win because I really want to be an astronaut and without this computer my dreams will be crushed!

  • phidget

    Of course I would use this laptop for work.

    Sleek and powerful, looks really good. I would sit at work and face it away from casual traffic.

    With a spreadsheet in the background and earphones on (only one earbud in so I could hear approaching people), I would be slapping around various MMOs that I normally only play in my off time.

    Really. What kind of work environment doesn't allow me to game as long as my work is done?

    Fight the powers that be I say! Viva la revolution!

    Or something along those lines.

    Of course with the beef that this laptop has I could alt-tab almost instantly to a spreadsheet or some code…

    “Oh what are you working on?”

    “Oh this? Its just code to draw the sales figures for the eastern region from the database..”

    'Good job'

    I hear myself die through the ear bud in my game and laughter of the person that just ganked me.

    I cringe to my boss as they give me kudos for my coding.

    A misinterpreted gesture to be sure.

    Of course with this laptop I might be able to write coherently as well…

So now i have a dead laptop and a brand new HD that I have no more use for. lol. hope I wiN!

    Why should I be considered? Well, as far as electronics go, i have had the worst weekend ever. Southwest Airlines lost my luggage on friday.

Now today i find out that my phone insurance was canceled over a year ago by my wife to “save money”! lol. New phone, like 600 bucks. Southwest wants to give me replacement cost for the wind. Like 300 even though it had every upgrade and hours and hours of Tweak work done to it. So when does Kharma kick in? lol

    Sadly… My Gen 2 XPS Visual Processor had kicked the bucket last spring…

    We since continuously remain stagnant in what has been forever known to us as..
    The Dark Ages of mine and my girlfriend’s apartment.

    Disparately we limp and stagger through the days and nights – malnourished, hungered and deprived of information. There’s no telling who or where we get our next ration of datum in this bleak of times.

    Disconnected from the outside world (wide web) we gain what little to no knowledge of current. We have been reduced to share the sparce 8GB solid state shillings carry in our empty pockets. No longer can we host along with our once beloved network’d brethren as they now scoff and abandon to bottomless perdition! We are left hanging in the balance!

    Our hope has become dim. Our faith has become withered. We plead for a miracle of chance and change. We hope one day, this miracle, may it water our flower of technology that has for so long been withered and dried.

    I would not only like to win this fabulously awesome hp laptop, though winning in itself is pretty awesome, but I would love to have this amazingly spectacular laptop because it has everything. A large bright beautiful LED screen. So now its brighter and i can save battery life because its LED instead of LCD. It's super portable which is a definite plus to carry around to class, work, back home, and maybe even when i take vacations with my family. I could use it to keep it touch with all my friends, via webcam, internet blogs, twitter, or facebook. If I decide not to i can always watch movies in Hi-Def! how great is that?! It is definitely useful if I'm away from home I can simply upload pictures of my day without having to wait until i get home to do so. Also it will be great to edit my photos and videos. Back home i can still take this to class and all my books because it's that ultra portable and awesome. I can do homework between classes, do some CAD drafting while at school or work, or even if i have to vacation. It has a super fast processor that I don't have to wait for it to slowly render like i do now. It also has so much hard drive space i don't have to worry about deleting stuff. Also the design itself is super awesome, sleek and sexy! thanks ohgizmo.com and HP for this fantastic chance to win a fantastic computer!

    I want this laptop because it's free, and my laptop is 4 years old, was carried daily for 3 years, and still travels almost everywhere with me, and is showing the strain. As is, every part except the motherboard has been replaced within the past 15 months. The motherboard was replaced two years ago.

    Hey OhGizmo,
    I’m a 22 year old in the US Navy. I normally do 2 month rotations overseas. 2 months out 2 months back and so on. Well I was in the desert 2 rotations ago and had to go fly(aircrew) and find bad guys so I closed me Dell E1705 screen and… forgot to remove my earbuds from on top of the keyboard. The screen spider webbed and they don’t make those anymore and on top of that my 2 year warranty had been expired for over a year. I would have bought a nicer laptop but i had to settle on a netbook because money was tight. I’m a gamer and write code on the side when I can be but I am always on the road, whether it be overseas or in a hotel room somewhere (I’m actually writing this from a hotel room in PA because my squadron sent me to a school). I just got back from overseas last month and just found out I’m leaving again in the middle of next month… 2nd Christmas in a row I’ll miss, not that I mind to much. I would rather the married guys get to stay home for the holidays.
    It would really be appreciated if you would keep me in mind for the laptop.
    Thanks a bunch.

    though it seems that you are going to pick a random winner, i still would like to explain why i am commenting and why this computer would be put to good use if i was selected. i have only become aware of ohgizmo in the recent months, but find myself checking it regularly. i enjoy the items highlighted here and the commentary attached to each. i am commenting really on behalf of a married couple who are friends of mine and live in pemba, mozambique. they have been there for over a year and have been building a program to train orphans that are moving into adulthood with life skills and helping them to build sustainable small businesses. they are fortunate to have internet access on site but have been working with subpar hardware (aging laptop) and this gift would mean so much in their efforts. one of their top needs right now is reliable communication with the states as they move forward with their work. i would love to receive a brand new piece of computing hardware and immediately forward it to pemba. thanks.

    I would like to win this because I am in college. And it is nice to have nice things in college because college students dont usually have the money to have nice things. This would be a really nice thing to have. I love computers, because computers are nice. If computers weren't nice, I wouldnt really want such a nice laptop like this fantastic HP Envy 15! This would be really awesome. I love OhGizmo for the articles that most gadget websites dont post until days later. Which is awesome. I would probably use the laptop to use the internet and visit OhGizmo, and play games, and edit videos.

    This is fantastical. Yes it is. I think this would be the coolest thing in the world if i win this because I never won anything that cost more than $20. When I win things, it is usually like a free croissant or small fry from burger king or mcdonalds. Or a free 12oz soda from coca cola. I enjoy drinking coca-cola from glass bottles because it is much more refreshing than drinking it from a cup, can, or even a plastic bottle.

    With Love to OhGizmo,

    I am in my 4th of college (3rd year architecture) and I have been using the same laptop since I started.
    The computer labs we have at the architecture school are always crowded and finding a workstation is difficult, so I always have to use cad, revit, photoshop, and other modeling and drafting programs on my laptop. I constantly have to juggle apps and freezing/crashing are becoming more and more problematic despite all tech wizardry I work on it to keep it going.
    Also the commuting to campus and constant travel with the laptop has created a fragile machine and loud machine. The hard drive is making this audible to me and needs to be replaced, it overheats easily during normal use now as the fan has slowed down, and the hinge for the screen feels as if it is about to fail anyday. It is also quite heavy which does not help matters either.
    I have been eying the development of this machine for several months now. The i7 processor, the lighter weight, and the more durable body is what I should have looked for in a laptop all along- and now its here! If only I could get my hands on one……

From the banner logo, to site navigation to editors( the list goes on).The one big change is that the site has been slower in loading time.

    1. Mobility that would give me the ability to work on on robots to take over the world while not confined to a chair and an old computer. Obviously a notebook is what every robot builder needs, but as a poor college student that is out of my price range.

    2. The ability to read Oh Gizmo! in more locations, thus the ability to share this awesomeness to many new people!

    I'd like to win because winning feels great, especially when it involves receiving a sleekly designed laptop I can use to replace an old, dying desktop from a great gadget-centric blog.

    I'd love one for school! My major requires programs that eat a stock computer alive.

    I would like to win cause, heck, who doesn’t. It would also be great to get this is mine just got stolen

    I love Oh Gizmo!!!
    I should win the laptop because I’m a college student with 2 jobs. I never owned a laptop and realize it’s a luxury to have one but cannot afford it.
    It would be a blessing to myself and my 3 siblings– we have a really old computer for the family and cannot afford to buy a computer at the current time.
    In fact, I have to get off the computer now so my younger brother can use the computer for his homework. Ah, the joy of siblings…

    I would like to win the HP Envy 15 because I NEED to! ;) I'm currently using a Gateway MT6841 notebook (which is now discontinued). I do not know if it is just my Gateway, but it has NO battery life. I'm talking about less than 10 minutes! :O The power adapter stopped working this summer and I'm now using the power adapter from my old HP notebook. To top it off, the fans are now trying to go out. :O I told you I NEED to win! ;)

    I would like to win, because I have always enjoyed this site, and the great news it provides to learn about new and upcoming technical advantages to the market and corporate world. I also am starting an IT program at a local school and am lacking a Laptop for working on the go. It would just be really nice to win something, because school is expensive. Thanks for the chance.

    I broke my boyfriend's laptop about 3 months ago and he didn't find it very amusing when I bought him an etch-n-sketch as a replacement.

    I could definitely use a laptop for school.

    If I had this laptop I wouldn't have to resort to using one of those blue-tooth keyboards that link up to my phone when I need to take notes…i just look silly.

    I need this HP laptop because I'm a middle school student and we are required to have a laptop for in class use, currently I am using a very old Compaq that turns off at random and I often lose my work. but my parents cant afford a new one.

  • youngrippark

    I would love to win this because my current HP Laptop has a screen that works 20% of the time during the 10% of the time it actually decides to work. It's been sent to HP several times and they still do nothing about it. I really need a laptop that works for classes. D:

    Wow, looking through these comments is like reading FML… only not as funny. Sad, really. I want to win this laptop to attract girls. At hipster coffee houses. And then have glorious nerd sex… If I’m reading this article correctly, they’re picking at random. If that’s the case… I eat puppies for breakfast. Babies are ugly. I steal toilet paper. I likes teh evils!

    I'm giving my current laptop (also an HP) to my mom after I restore it. She really needs it. And I'm going back to school and can't afford a new one. By the way, I've read ohgizmo ever since I discovered it many many months ago and I think offering prizes is a great way to push for comments. I wish you guys all the best!
