HP ENVY TouchSmart 14 Review

thinkdigit.com
6 September 2013
  • Summary: Over time, the addition of the touchscreen has made ultrabooks heavy. However, if you have no problem in coming to terms with that aspect, the TouchSmart 14 ultrabook will undoubtedly impress. Excellent battery life, very good performance and a build quality that is in line with HP's push towards standardizing the design accents across machines. We are not very sure about the price, because it doesn't have a dedicated graphics chip.
  • Pros: Excellent battery life, Very good performance, Premium build & finish, Brilliant keyboard
  • Cons: No dedicated graphics at this price, Poor black levels at high brightness, Sharp edges around the keyboard

HP Envy 14 Spectre

CNET
1 December 2012
  • Summary: The HP Envy 14 Spectre's glassy design makes it stand out from most ultrabooks, but it's fatter, heavier and pricier than its competitors, which is likely to put many off. If you're after an ultrabook purely for portable use, your money looks to be better spent elsewhere.
  • Cons: Expensive; Only average performance; fatter and heavier than most ultrabooks; awkward trackpad.

Stylish HP Envy gets touched up for Windows 8

CNET
29 March 2012
  • Summary: The HP Envy TouchSmart Ultrabook 4 is a good gateway to the Windows 8 experience with a responsive touch screen in a traditional laptop body.
  • Cons: The Envy TouchSmart 4 isn't very configurable, so you can't make it too much more powerful than it already is. It's on the heavy side for an "ultrabook" (if you consider 4.5 pounds heavy). Its touch pad is jumpy at default settings.

HP Envy 14 Spectre

Wired
26 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Apple probably didn’t realize what it was starting when it decided to build the iPhone 4 out of two panes of glass, forgoing the traditional metal or plastic backing and causing thousands of geek brains to simultaneously explode at the prospect.

HP Envy 14 Review

TechSpot
28 December 2011
  • Conclusion: As with last year's product, the keyboard is a strong point for the Envy 14. There's no mushy feel when typing and the backlit keys help when it's dark. More importantly, however, are the changes that HP made to the touchpad and click buttons. Last year's touchpad was extremely bad. The company was aware of the issue and supplied updated drivers that helped to an extent but it was still a bad system. I'm happy to report that HP's new image sensor technology delivers.

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.
