Test results (PCMark7)
Our most important benchmark for computer systems is PCMark7. It works with traces, which are recordings of existing software for various applications, that are played back in real-time in order to create a realistic indication of real-world performance.
The relatively fast hard disk in the HP Envy 23 TouchSmart causes better results in PCMark 7 than some other all-in-one systems from Samsung and Apple. You can clearly see this in the last chart on this page.
