Reviews for the HP Envy 14-2160se

80% HP Envy 14 Review
Source: Techspot English
HP's 2011 Envy 14 picks up right where last year's model left off by beefing up the internals, adding modern connectivity options like USB 3.0 and DisplayPort and greatly improving the touchpad. The optical drive is a convenience feature should you find yourself still using DVDs on a regular basis. We're pleased with the Envy 14, and it's a good value for a solidly constructed laptop at $900, however it remains to be seen if it can handle the stiff competition from thinner and lighter ultrabooks that are expected to arrive early 2012. We wouldn't discard an impending update to the Envy 14 itself as part of that thin and lighter movement as well.

HP's Envy 14-2160SE is a surprisingly strong performance laptop even though it doesn't have a quad core processor. Much of this is achieved through the use of a solid state drive and performance hard drive pairing. The build quality of the Envy lineup still is one of the best around even though it design is disrupted with the big red Beats logo on the lid.

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+.
