HP ENVY 17 3D hands-on

HPs ENVY range of laptops have always been eye-catching, but their latest ENVY 17 3D takes that up a step by packing 3D support too.  We caught up with the 17.3-inch Full HD notebook this week, and it's certainly a beast of a machine: plenty of metal in the chassis, a quadcore Intel Core i7-720QM processor, 2TB of storage and a slot-loading Blu-ray drive.
