84% Review HP Envy 14-2090eo Notebook | Notebookcheck
Compact performance. With the 14.5-inch Envy 14, HP has managed to squeeze some powerful components into a slim and stylish chassis--particularly if you opt for a model like this one, with a quad-core, 2nd-generation Intel Core i7 processor. It is also equipped with a midrange graphics card from AMD, which is switchable to integrated graphics when longer battery life is required. So, is this the perfect traveling companion? Not entirely. Keep reading to find out why.

With everything getting slimmer, HP's Envy 14 Spectre is one of the reincarnations of ultrabooks by HP. Previous laptops which fell into Intel’s specification for ultrabooks were enclosed in either a 11” or 13” inch body. Only recently, we’ve been seeing new variations of these premium laptops.

The unique touch to this 14” HP envy Spectre would be its tough glass-covered design, which makes it not only stylish but also stays cool. Whilst Dell has used the Corning's scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass for the display of its XPS 13z and 14 ultrabooks, HP has goon a step further by covering the entire display, lid and arm rest with this glass. It feels durable and sleek at the same time. However, all this comes with a price, which is the slightly heavier feel to it but still remains lighter than many other laptops.

For a slim 14-inch ultrabook body, it comes with most requirements that are expected for a regular 14 “laptop. The available ports and the Beats powered audio system is certainly sufficient to cater for a regular mainstream use. Another major feature which sets it apart from the rest is it’s built in NFC chip. The near feel communication technology has already made its way through smart phones and it could potentially facilitate laptop users as well for wireless data transfer purposes. The multitouch touchpad also feels very responsive for a Windows laptop by far. The only downside to this ultrabook would be the asking price. A similarly equipped Dell XPS 14 ultrabook would cost at least €200 lesser.

AMD Radeon HD 6630M: Successor of the slow clocked (low power) versions of the Mobility Radeon HD 5650 with more cores, UVD3 processor and Eyefinity+.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

2.39 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
