A very good option for a rather cheap 15.6″ gaming laptop. The GT 740M has the performance level of the GT 650M DDR3 and with 6GB of DDR3 and matte 1080p screen the laptops delivers a very good value for the money. The battery should be good with at least 5-6 hours of light work / surfing the web. Weight is something like 4.5-4.6lbs.

Though there aren’t no reviews yet, judging by the previous generation, this laptop should be a good option. I don’t think that for 650$ there is a faster laptop currently that also has the 1080p screen

UPDATE: It seems that some models on New-Zealand of the HP 15t come with a 64-bit GT 740M which is a total bummer and make my recommendation probably canceled – we should wait and see what are the specs on the HP default model. Also, the screen is not as good as the previous generation 1080p screen one. For now, I wouldn’t buy it and consider the 15z-j000 with the Radeon 8750M

Ah, but thee HD 8750M is way faster when overclocked, while the GT’s are already at their limits! Ha-Ha! Read this: http://www.anandtech.com/show/6873/nvidias-geforce-700m-family-full-details-and-specs/2

If you check at Notebookreview forum, this HP Envy’s GT740M is the gimped version with DDR3 64 bit interface (14.72GB/s) only. It is speculated to be very weak, even worse than a GT640M, let alone 650M. This sucks when HP slaps a ultra low end GPU to what supposed to be their premium line.
