Summary: If you're looking for an attractive touch notebook with a full HD display and a comfortable keyboard, the $1,058 HP Envy Touchsmart 15 is definitely a strong contender. We also like the sharp and bright webcam on this notebook and crisp Beats Audio. However, this laptop had trouble with the most demanding games, and it can run hot under stress.
Excerpt: One of the key benefits of Intel's new Haswell processors is the improved power-efficiency that leads to greater battery life and portability. It seems a little odd, then, that the first Haswell laptop we've seen from HP should be a 15.6-inch desktop replacement system rather than a slimline Ultrabook .
Conclusion: On paper, the specifications are impressive for the price, but the cut corners are obvious in the keyboard, touchpad and screen. A solid laptop then, but we’d hope for more to replace our desktop full time.
Pros: Impressive specs for the price, Great game performance for a laptop, Impressive sound output
Cons: Lack of SSD makes a speedy laptop feel sluggish, Flakey keyboard and uninspiring trackpad, Unimpressive screen
Excerpt: Hjertet i den nye Envy er Intels helt nye 4-kernede Haswell-processor, et separat grafikkort baseret på Nvidias nyeste Kepler-teknologi og gavmilde 8 GB hukommelse. Harddisken er på forrygende 2 TB, og skærmen har naturligvis ægte fuld hd-opløsning.
