HP Envy TouchSmart 15 Review

 

The HP Envy Touchsmart 15 is an attractive notebook with a crisp screen and booming audio, but it doesn't pack the same graphics punch as competitors.

Attractive design and comfortable keyboard; Strong overall performance; Sharp audio; Crisp 1080p display; High-quality webcam

Below-average battery life; Graphics performance trails competitors; Can get hot on bottom

HP ENVY TouchSmart 15 laptop

 

HP's latest 15-inch ENVY laptop instils anything but.

Good computing performance ; Large keyboard with numeric keypad

Unacceptably low 1366x768 resolution ; Heavy at 2.6kg, bulky at 30mm thick ; Slow mechanical storage

Functional, but feels like a budget model with a AU$1,400/NZ$1,900 price tag.

HP Envy TouchSmart 15 review

 

Well-judged blend of quality, price and features

Powerful processor ; Good graphics card ; Loads of RAM ; Nicely made ; Comfortable to use

Rubbish battery life ; Iffy trackpad ; Poor viewing angles on screen ; Loud and hot ; No SSD

HP's Envy line is the company's high-end range - the top-class stuff, in theory - but has produced mixed results recently. We were impressed by the Spectre XT and Envy X2, but weren't so sure about the Envy 6 or Envy 4.

HP Envy TouchSmart 15-joo5ea review

 

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...

The HP TouchSmart 15 is not particularly portable, even by the standards of other 15.6-inch laptops. However, its high-quality screen and speaker system make it an excellent entertainment machine for use at home, while the i7 processor provides desktop...

HP Envy Touchsmart 15

 

A laptop with 16GB RAM for £1,000, but will the HP Envy Touchsmart make your friends envious?

Impressive specs for the price ; Great game performance for a laptop ; Impressive sound output

Lack of SSD makes a speedy laptop feel sluggish ; Flakey keyboard and uninspiring trackpad ; Unimpressive screen

On the plus side, the resolution is very good for this size, and the 15.6 inches of space means that the touch interaction works far better than on some smaller Ultrabooks where we’ve been struggling for accuracy against the smaller screen real estate....

HP Envy TouchSmart 15

 

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.

The HP Envy TouchSmart 15 measures 37.5x24.5x3cm and weights a tad under 2.6kilos. The visible screen is 34x19.5cm which gives the notional diagonal imperial measurement of 15.6inches which shows the same resolution as most panels, it also means you...

HP Envy Touchsmart 15 review

 

A stylish desktop replacement with powerful specs and a touchscreen display

Slim for a desktop replacement, stylish aluminium body, super-fast application performance, responsive touchscreen

Lack of SSD storage can slow down the Envy when starting up and shutting down

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.
