Productivity and output remain a must for anyone, meaning most would need a reliable laptop to carry around. However, there are certain requirements that consumers prefer ranging from size, weight and the features needed to ensure ample computing performance.
Hewlett Packard is no stranger when it comes to offering mobile solutions for the market. Pricing remains a concern and most are aware that the smaller a notebook is – the higher the price. However, the HP Envy addresses most of these concerns. It comes packed with striking features, all contained in an aluminum shell for a tempting yet classy look.
The HP Envy is something that can be easy to bring along. It measures 0.59-inches thick and weighs only 2.9 pounds. These metrics should attract potential buyers, especially the ones who are always on the go or want to work wherever they end up.
The HP Envy model on our end is the 13.3-inch variant, a diagonal full HD IPS LED (1080p) display that is also a touchscreen. This should be more than enough for anyone looking to have some work done although gaming and media entertainment is also possible for people who love to multitask.
To make sure that tasks are done as efficiently as possible, it all boils down to the specs under the hood. The HP Envy is powered by an 8th generation Intel Core i7-8550U processor (1.8 GHz) backed by 8192 MB of LPDDR3 SDRAM and a 360 GB Solid State Drive. It also comes with a built-in NVIDIA GeForce graphics card to make sure that screen display performance is at its optimal best.
With its mold, there are understandably some standard ports missing. It does not come with an HDMI slot and a full-sized SD card slot. Instead, the HP Envy comes with a microSD slot together with two USB Type-C and two full-sized USB ports.
The device also comes with a fingerprint reader, Bang & Olufsen speakers and comes with Windows 10 pre-installed. Sporting a 51 Wh battery, the HP Envy can last up to 12 hours, meaning folks who are wary of the longevity of use have one less thing to worry about.
The HP Envy offer anyone the bare essentials when it comes to fulfilling their daily computing needs. With a reliable battery and portable mold, this is one device that should be a worthy investment for the cost-conscious and wise tech buyers of today.
