HP ENVY TouchSmart 14

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

Stylish HP Envy gets touched up for Windows 8

CNET
27 January 2013
  • 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.
  • Pros: HP's Envy TouchSmart Ultrabook 4 is an attractive ultrabook with a respectable mix of components for its price, a responsive touch screen, and a backlit keyboard.
  • 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

CNET
13 October 2012
  • Summary: The first big high-design laptop of 2012, the HP Envy 14 Spectre is a bold experiment that largely succeeds, if you're willing to pay a premium for it.
  • Pros: The HP Envy 14 Spectre has a unique glass-covered design and packs a lot of features into a slim 14-inch ultrabook body, plus its multitouch response is great for a Windows laptop.
  • Cons: It's expensive, especially considering the standard components, and feels heavier than it should. The glass wrist rest can be awkward.

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.
