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: 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.
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.
Conclusion: The HP Envy Touchsmart 15 is quite the powerhouse and thus is a suitable desktop replacement for those wanting a portable machine with gaming capabilities similar to those of a mid-range gaming tower PC.
Pros: Slim for a desktop replacement, stylish aluminium body, super-fast application performance, responsive touchscreen.
Cons: Lack of SSD storage can slow down the Envy when starting up and shutting down., Keyboard is irritatingly difficult to master, touchpad is a little stiff, unimpressive battery life.
Conclusion: Op een aanzienlijk aantal gebieden is de HP Envy TouchSmart 15 vies tegengevallen. Het scherm, de harde schijf en de kwaliteit van de behuizing zijn onder de maat voor een laptop van een krappe 1.000 euro.
