There is an elegance to the HP Envy 4 Ultrabook, the sort you associate with a well-tailored suite and a matching tie. It is not the thinnest Ultrabook, but the air it carries is one of style and substance. So that you will also be very right.
We have had our fair share of graceful Ultrabook, and the HP Envy 4 can stride right in and blend in with the crowd. Everything ,from the sleek matte surface to the simplistic-yet-classy silver interior, looks simply marvelous. It is also well-built and solid; a little heavier, perhaps, but not unwieldy.
The premium-ness of it also extends its other design aspects. The keyboard works and types comfortably, and we have ample space for our wrist to rest on. The screen, while not of full HD capability, is bright and wonderfully crisp. This is coupled with the fantastic beats audio speakers, which does a fine job at providing loud and sultry audio.
The trackpad, though , could have been better designed. As they blend both right and left buttons in a single bar, some times we ended up right clicking unwittingly when we meant to left click. Otherwise, the tracking itself is smooth and precise. The ENVY 14 Ultrabook is also well-equipped, bringing you an ample collection of USB ports . HDMI connectivity and a purposeful card reader.
With a 3rd-gen Intel Core i5 and 4GB of RAM. You can expect the Envy 14 Ultrabook to do a solid job at handling can’t handling HD content and day-to-day processes. It can’t handle intense graphical work that well, but it is nonetheless right on par with most Ultrabooks out there.
