HP Envy 13 review

 

In more ways than one, the HP Envy 13 seems like a "new generation" of PC laptop for HP or even the industry. Intentional or not it bears more in resemblance...

HP's Envy 13 develops some style, while the Envy 17 and Spectre x2 make more sense.

Review: HP Envy 13

 

Adamo? No. Air? We think not. The HP Envy with Voodoo DNA is a thin, light powerhouse that nearly justifies its mega-high price tag.

Good looks and solid performance … what’s not to like? Textured palm-rest pattern evokes Death Star motif … like a million voices crying out in unison, then suddenly silenced

Only two USB ports. Bright screen, but hardly an “unparalleled viewing experience.” Chiclet keyboard awkward at first. Middling battery life (2 hours, 10 minutes). Undersized arrow keys. Higher price than Cypress Hill concert

HP Envy 13

 

Snarky bloggers (ahem) could easily dismiss the HP Envy 13 as a MacBook Pro plus $300, say so in a tweet, and call it a day. Hell, I was certainly tempted. (The Envy 13 starts at $1699. As configured, our review unit would cost you $1799.) This...

Great, Mac-like looks ; Neat audio processing feature for headphones

Expensive ; Annoying bloatware ads

If it looks like a MacBook and feels like a Macbook, it's got to be from Apple, right? Wrong! The Envy 13 is the PC's answer for slim, stylish computing. Only more expensive.

HP Envy 13

 

Most everything about the HP Envy 13—from its amazing battery life to its gorgeous design—is enviable, but its price holds it back.

Phenomenal battery life with both batteries. Extended slice fits flush with the system's base. Metallic design is gorgeous and customizable. Media-centric resolution. Up to 5GB of memory. Very bright screen. Nice typing experience.

Pricey. No illuminated keyboard option. ExpressCard slot would be nice. Only two USB ports.

HP Envy 13 review: HP Envy 13

 

HP Envy 13

Slick, modern design; big touch pad; bright display; premium support services.

Very expensive; heavier than it looks; no backlit keyboard; limited ports and connections.

HP's upscale Envy 13 looks and feels like an expensive status symbol, with performance and features that impress us--but its high price makes it a tough sell over the similar-looking MacBook Pro.

Voodoo Envy 133

 

Admit it: You've said to your boss that you need an ultraportable laptop because it would give you easy and instant access to your work data. But the truth is, the main reason anyone buys a sleek, slim ultraportable is to turn heads. The HP Voodoo Envy...

The speakers' sound quality was a pleasant surprise. You get some surprisingly clear and crisp audio from this ultraportable. Of course, you won't hear much in the way of bass out of the two tiny side-mounted speakers (there's no subwoofer to be...

Excellent build quality ; Great keyboard ; Cool "green" packaging

Expensive ; Overly sensitive touchpad ; Limited number of ports ; An attractive 13-inch notebook with an unattractive price.

HP Envy 13 Review

 

It's called the Envy 13 for a reason. From its magnesium alloy frame, to its beautiful display and its laser etched hand-rest, HP's Envy 13 is sure to turn a few of your friends green. The only setback to this ultraportable? It's going to cost you a...

Sylish, magnesium-alloy frame; excellent LED display; jet-fast benchmark performance

Expensive; mediocre battery life; no optical drive
