Excerpt: Convertibles such as Lenovo’s expansive Yoga line and the economical Asus Transfer Book have been big hits for manufactures. That’s why it comes as little surprise that laptop makers are searching for new ways to expand the market. In the case of HP that means a larger display.
Pros: Rich sound quality, Control Zone touchpad, 360 degree flexible form factor
Summary: Upon concluding, we would like to say that the Envy x360 possess the qualities and features any one desires to be there in their convertible. Though it is larger in size and heavier in weight, but its productivity and media use is noticeable.
Summary: Jul 22 2013 - HP's latest ENVY TouchSmart 15 laptop is a series of tradeoffs that makes it just a suitable laptop for those that want some decent computing performance but aren't as concerned with the display.
Summary: Slim all-rounder. It's a slim 15.6-inch all-rounder including a touchscreen that Hewlett Packard has with its Pavilion TouchSmart 15. A Core i7 and GeForce core provide enough computing power. Owing to the ULV CPU, the laptop should also offer long battery runtimes.
Pros: Decent application and gaming performance, Modest power consumption, Good battery runtimes, The decent application performance.
Cons: Dark screen with bluish cast, 12 month warranty only, No VGA out, Fast Ethernet only, A much brighter screen, a Gigabit Ethernet port, a VGA out and a longer standard warranty.
Summary: The HP ENVY TouchSmart 15 is a laptop with high performance, capable of replacing a desktop in most uses except in those extremely stressful (audio / video editing, gaming hardcore), obviously provided that you do not need a optical drive, here a priori excluded from the design.
Pros: Compact and stylish, CPU and GPU performance, Sound quality above average.
Cons: Autonomy is not brilliant, Lack of optical drive.

23 June 2013
Summary: Low-cost touchscreen. Laptop sales are in decline, the outlook is gloomy. Can a touchscreen help reverse this trend? HP certainly hopes so, equipping a 450 Euros (~$588) device with such a panel. But does this also equate to a possible tipping point for the cheap laptop segment?
Pros: Very silent, Low power consumption, Touchscreen is nice to have, Nice keyboard, Slim chassis, The sturdy display lid of the touch panel. Silent and cool - this is how every laptop should be.
Cons: Short battery life, Low display brightness, Strong blue tint (without calibration), Mediocre speakers, Rather heavy at 2.5 kg, Barely any gaming performance, Low system performance, If it had to be a slow laptop, it could at least have been a highly mobile one, meaning one with a very bright disp...
Excerpt: Certainly not a small and light offering, ideal for a tower/desktop replacement, the native resolution is 1920x1080 just like what a standard panel will display. The advantage it can travel with you when required to do so.
