Earlier this Year HP added a brand new member to its envy series – the HP Envy 4 TouchSmart powered by Microsoft Windows 8 and sporting a decent 14-inch glossy touchscreen. It is a standard laptop, but there is something about it that makes you say, “It’s different”. The gadget is just 0.9 inch thick which makes it one of the thinnest laptops around.
- 14 inch touchscreen display
- Microsoft Windows 8 OS
- Intel Core i5-3317U processor
- Intel HD Graphics 4000
- 500 GB hard drive
When it comes to looks, HP has always been quite consistent, and the Envy 4 TouchSmart seems to be no different. The lid is covered with aluminium plates while the bottom-half is constructed out of plastic and has a rubberized paint coating which further add up to its appeal and durability.
The laptop weighs around 2.1kg which makes it much lighter than the other laptops available with a similar configuration. Most of the internal hardware components have been moved to the front, which will prevent the laptop from flipping while you touch the screen.
The laptop features 14-inch touch display with a 1366 x 768 resolution. The sensitivity of the touchscreen is highly impressive. Viewing angles won’t disappoint you. However, you my witness a slight color shift while you bend the screen forward.
The HP Envy 4 TouchSmart features almost every port you would probably want your laptop to have. It houses 2 USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB 2.0 port and a standard HDMI port. A folding ethernet jack is located on the left. However, it lacks a VGA port. So, connecting external monitors is not possible.
The laptop is powered by the Intel Core i5-3317U processor teamed up with 4 GB of RAM. With 500 GB of hard drive on board, you have enough space to dump in all your crucial data. The battery lasts for a little over 4 hours which may not seem quite impressive.
A powerful processor, sufficient storage space, the latest operating system, and above all a touchscreen could be considered as the USP of HP Envy 4. You would hardly ask for anything more. Talking about the design, it might not be something out-of-the-world but surely is an innovative one. So, an overall rating of 9 on 10 seems quite fair enough.
