  • Conclusion: In the end, the HP Envy 14’s chief attractions as an entertainment laptop are its slick, aluminum-clad design and booming Beats audio. Its 14.5-inch display lends it some versatility, giving you a roomy display for watching movies, playing games, and editing media with the preinstalled Adobe apps, while also providing some degree of portability.
  • Pros: Solid all-around performance, Sleek design, Comfortable keyboard, Rich, loud sound, Strong software bundle, Standard two-year warranty
  • Cons: No Blu-ray player, Subpar battery life

Review: HP Envy 14

Wired
1 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Sometimes, a little identity crisis is a wonderful thing. Since acquiring Voodoo in 2006, HP has been quietly injecting the specialty gaming PC maker’s high-dollar DNA into its own mass-market machines. It’s taken some time, but the fruits of that marriage are finally ripe : an inexpensive yet fast, feature-rich, and exquisitely designed computer.

HP Envy 14 Spectre

Pocket Lint
23 April 2012
  • Conclusion: What HP seems to have done here is make a terrific laptop that plays by its own rules. It's too big and heavy to really be called an Ultrabook and it's really expensive too, especially considering how much cheaper the Dell XPS 13 and Samsung Series 5 Ultrabooks are. But the HP has something that most laptops don't have these days: it has the appeal of premium features, and interesting design.
  • Pros: Beautiful, great keyboard and trackpad, good battery life, powerful sound
  • Cons: Glass makes it heavy, Beats is a bit overrated, no discrete graphics option, a bit pricey

25 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Итак, HP Envy 14 Spectre представляет из себя весьма производительный и успешный ультрабук, выглядящий крайне престижно. Из плюсов стоит ответить отличные устройства ввода, качественный дисплей и хорошее время автономной работы. Минусы тоже есть - прошлогодняя платформа, например, а также несколько шумноватая система охлаждения. Но, в целом, ультрабук Hewlett Packard полностью заслужил высокую оценку и наши рекомендации.

  • Conclusion: L HP Envy 14-3100 Spectre è un ultrabook destinato a chi desidera un dispositivo dal design accattivante, che si fa certo notare, senza rinunciare alle prestazioni. Indubbiamente i punti di forza sono il coperchio e il poggia polsi ricoperti di Gorilla Glass, la tastiera retroilluminata con sensore di prossimità e l’autonomia particolarmente elevata.
  • Pros: Tastiera retroilluminata; Display Radiance ad alta risoluzione; Uscita HDMI; Tecnologia Beats Audio; Corpo in lega di alluminio con Corning Gorilla; Webcam HD; Connettività completa
  • Cons: Capacità interna; Prezzo

25 July 2011
  • Conclusion: N’y allons pas par quatre chemin, l’ENVY14 beats Editions nous a clairement séduits. Et ce, pas seulement parce que nous avons une oreille musicale mais aussi parce que nous avons été enchantés par son design particulièrement réussi, ses petites touches de couleurs et son revêtement extrêmement agréable. En plus, les performances sont effectivement au rendez-vous tant en termes de calcul qu’en matière audio.
  • Pros: Les finitions, Revêtement autour du clavier, Le clavier rétro éclairé, Ne chauffe pas, Les performances brutes, Les performances audio, Rétro éclairage LED
