They are around us. With the new Envy notebook HP finally dares to enter the premium multimedia segment, which is only sparsely populated by some brands so far. Here a hiqh-quality case with premium design and most up-to-date, powerful hardware are always high on the wish list. The price plays only a minor role and if it does, only to further strike the exclusivity of many a products. We point out how much value the HP Envy 15 offers for your money.

It looks like the MacBook Pro, but performance doesn't quite match its rival. When HP refreshed its Envy range earlier this year, we were struck its design. The generous might suggest HP has borrowed a leaf from Apple's design book, the cynical might not be so kind, with the resemblance between this notebook and the MacBook Pro pretty obvious.

The stylish and powerful Envy
Source: Star Techcentral English
The HP Envy 15 is a classy notebook that has a lot going for it. It is a multimedia powerhouse that’s great for running all sorts of applications, watching movies, surfing and even playing games. Plus, its stereo speakers are pretty good as it delivers crisp, clear tunes. However, the Envy isn’t very portable and the battery life suffers due to its demanding processor and graphics chip. But the biggest issue with the notebook is the amount of heat it generates.

There is potential for high performance in this laptop with its interesting processor, but there's also enough niggles to make us cautious before making a recommendation. Given the high power demands of the CPU, this is still more of a desktop replacement, a static desk design which makes the separate optical drive an satisfactory solution over a regular integrated unit. And professional users may be turned off by the glossiness of the screen, its low resolution, or both.

The Envy laptops represent HP's latest premium range, and the Envy 15 is an extremely stylish laptop that successfully marries excellent performance with usability and portability. Nevertheless, this is a small blemish and the HP Envy 15 impressed us enormously with its style, performance and portability – the price is also competitive.

With the arrival of its new high-end range of laptops, one manufacturer would have us believe that imitation truly is the most sincere form of flattery. Lightweight, slender and sheathed in aluminium – no, we’re not talking about Apple’s metal-framed MacBooks - HP’s Envy range comes dressed to impress. HP's Envy 15 takes on Apple at its own game, but proves sinful in all the wrong ways

The HP Envy 15 has some real strengths: the design is sensational, the keyboard is excellent and the power on offer makes this a really versatile machine. This has to be balanced against the lack of internal drive and poor battery life, which means that this is a PC that will complement your plush office or home better than it will accompany you on your travels. There is no doubting the style on offer however and it will look good wherever you put it and whatever competitor you sit it next to.

While it offers a brilliant screen, awesome performance, and a unique design, the Envy 15’s short battery life (with the standard battery), hot temperatures, and awkward keyboard will turn many buyers off. If you’re a graphics designer or video editor, the Envy 15 is more powerful than a 15-inch MacBook Pro, but you’ll probably prefer the Apple machine’s longer endurance and more comfortable keyboard and touchpad. And if you want to play games, the ASUS G51J, which is $300 less expensive, will be more to your liking. Overall, the Envy 15 has the guts to be a MacBook killer, but we’d like to see HP provide longer battery life—without adding 2 pounds of weight—and cooler temperatures.

It might be more accurate to refer to HP’s latest laptop as the ‘Apple Envy’, as the design of the machine so closely mimics that of Apple’s MacBook Pro range. But, to be fair to HP, it hasn’t simply copied Apple. Yes, the battery life is disappointing, but the Envy 15’s powerhouse performance and competitive price make this an impressive desktop replacement system.

As I worked my way down the list of parts, everything about the HP Envy 15 ($1,800 direct) seemed as if it were a dream come true. An Intel Mobile Core i7 processor, 6GB of DDR3 memory, and midrange ATI graphics card are parts that you would find in an extremely large media center or gaming rig—not in a 15.6-inch aluminum frame that bears a strong resemblance to the Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (SD Slot). Every component that powers the Envy 15 is what performance dreams are made of, but heat, unfortunately, is an aggravating side effect.

The HP Envy line's name is wonderfully cheeky. While the intention is to imply that others will "envy" people who own these stylish, high-end laptops, the line's similarity in design to Apple's MacBook series makes for an amusing double meaning. Stylish enough to take on Apple's MacBook, the Envy 15 backs up its good looks with excellent performance, superb audio, and great ergonomics. If you don't need an all-day battery, this is a dream machine.

"Artistically and technically superior. The HP Envy 15 Notebook PC combines Quad Core performance, a subtly engineered design, and a superior user experience for substance over flash discerning users will recognize." When HP goes after Apple's MacBook Pro, the result is a very handsome notebook that exudes quality, even if it lacks originality. While not the equal of its model--for battery life, noise level or display quality--the HP Envy 15 does offer excellent performance, unparalleled user comfort, and high-quality audio.

We can't help but be smitten with the HP Envy 15. It's a gaming powerhouse, a desktop replacement and more than powerful enough to keep us away from shopping notebooks for a few years. Yet it's gorgeous, very thin and light. Its unique looks and Apple-chic design make this one of the few gaming notebooks that you can take to a meeting without looking like boy-gamer redux. The machine's portability is somewhat compromised by the large power brick and is seriously compromised if you do indeed need an optical drive on the road and lots of battery power.

A big brother to HP's 13-inch Envy 13, this upscale 15-inch model crams more computing power into a midsize laptop than anyone outside of Alienware's m15x. And while that system is a 10-pound monster, the Envy 15 manages to be both slim and reasonably lightweight, partially by ditching the internal optical drive--an unusual move for a larger laptop. HP's new Envy 15 packs high-powered components into a svelte 15-inch body. The result is an upscale status symbol that still shows a few first-generation rough edges.

Taiwanese ODMs and lower-tier manufacturers have long tried to ape Apple's design ethic in the hope of generating some publicity. Larger entities, such as HP, have been known to take some inspiration as well, but they generally shy away from more overt imitation for fear of being made to look a little silly. With its Envy range, however, HP has been more brazen.

There's no denying the impulsive appeal of the Envy 15: it's an innovative, attractive and incredibly powerful machine. Unfortunately, though, it seems like a work in progress. Hopefully HP will nail the formula if and when it revisits the concept.

The HP Envy 15-1110ea is a beautiful laptop which oozes quality and comes with plenty of stylish design touches. It’s more powerful and better equipped than the more expensive Apple MacBook Pro that it imitates, but its quad-core processor could prove overkill for many of us, making it hotter and shirt-lived off the mains.

Ultimately when you put everything together, the HP Envy 15 is actually a pretty good multimedia machine. It does what you need it to do, and does it well without any issues. For those focused on superficial aspects, it would seem to be emulating an Apple MacBook Pro, but as we've mentioned in the review, its color combination and other design elements do give it a slightly unique footprint.

With good looks and a solid configuration, the HP Envy 15 is a laptop that's worth considering. It's not overly expensive considering it's a premium model, but it's also not as refined as a premium model should be. We'd put in a touchpad with better reliability, a screen with less gloss, a slightly more solid keyboard and a better quality volume control, and we'd add a line input.

Okay, time to get it out of your system. Say it with us: the Envy 15 unapologetically copies the MacBook Pro. Feel good, getting that off your chest? Excellent. Onto the business of evaluating the laptop for what it does. In some ways, the 15 improves on the notebook it so unsubtly imitates: it has a sharper (though imprecisely calibrated) display with wide viewing angles.

The new HP Envy 15 is a fairly slick all-purpose laptop, if a little on the bulky side. It has lots of great wireless and wired connectivity options, fantastic audio, a very useful analog volume dial, and a good keyboard. HP has two major issues to work out before I can recommend it, though. The first is the color-calibration problem on the otherwise very desirable display upgrade option, and the other is the terrible palm detection and stiff clicking on the touchpad. If the company can address those two sticking points, it will be easy to give the Envy 15 a thumbs-up.

We really like the HP Envy 15-3040nr: it's a high performance yet portable laptop that's clad in metal and has all the creature comforts you'd expect from a higher end laptop. We like the dual HDMI and DisplayPort with the ability to drive multiple monitors, strong dedicated graphics, backlit keyboard and a full HD 1080p IPS display. Though I purchased the Envy for review purposes, I've decided to keep it as my main Windows machine. It's a fast and capable gamer and Photoshop machine that can run for 5 hours on AC power-- sweet. And I like the aluminum casing, sturdy build and easily accessible internals too.

HP ENVY 15 Review
Source: Slashgear English
Is the ENVY 15 as good as the 15-inch MacBook Pro? No. But considering that for the hardware that we tested you’d have to spend nearly $2000 on an Apple machine, it doesn’t have to be. If you find yourself spending most of your computer time within the reach of an AC outlet, it’s tough to beat for power and media capabilities. I wish it was a little lighter and lasted a little longer, but as a desktop replacement and media consumption/creation specialist, you’d be hard-pressed to find anything with these kinds of specs, fit and finish in this price range.

The latest generation Intel Core i7 processor, paired with 8GB of RAM, a 1080p display and a fairly powerful graphics card is the foundation of extremely good performance. It has an excellent keyboard to type out long documents on. However, the display isn't as good as the IPS versions in terms of colour richness that a lot of rivals now sport and the battery life is fairly disappointing.

74% HP Envy x360-15t Touch Convertible Review | Notebookcheck
Jealous? The HP Envy 15-u001ng wants to make other convertible users jealous with its 360-degree hinge and the metal case. Read our review to find out why this is probably not going to happen.

At the end of the day, while we appreciate the HP Envy x360's attempt to please users seeking a laptop and tablet in one device, we think it's simply too big, heavy, and unwieldy to serve the latter function. And while the concept of a big-screened convertible has merit for its other modes—using the tent or stand mode to show a presentation or watch a movie—the Envy is handicapped by its brief battery life and compromised display.

If you want a large but versatile laptop, the HP Envy x360 is worth a look, but you must be prepared to accept the compromises detailed above. You should also consider whether a flexible laptop this large is useful. If you use your laptop in bed or on the train, for example, this could be the device for you, but if you're mostly deskbound, get a different laptop.

The HP Envy x360 15t winds up being a pretty good laptop, but a mediocre tablet. It feels like HP still figuring out the tablet half of the hybrid equation, as evidenced by the system's shorter battery life, lackluster display, and odd asymmetrical design. Lenovo's multiple Yoga laptops offer a far more polished version of the laptop, but the best midrange convertible-hybrid laptop remains our Editors' Choice Toshiba Satellite Radius P55W-B5224. It has better overall performance and battery life, and a better tablet experience.

60% HP Envy x360 review: This 360-degree laptop is about versatility, not power
Source: PC World English
As all-purpose laptops go, the Envy x360 does a pretty good job with multimedia, and general business users who can benefit from its multiple display options should take a look. But the absence of 5GHz Wi-Fi and a slow hard drive are definite drawbacks. In its $770 price range, buyers may well find units with less onerous tradeoffs.

Initially, the HP Envy 15 x360's effective, poseable and competent core hardware had us optimistic about its prospects, but despite good performance and decent ergonomics, the screen is a real sticking point. Ultimately, there are better-balanced budget laptops around for a more reasonable price than the x360 can offer: the Asus X552CL, for example, may lack the hinge and touchscreen of the Envy (and you have to ask yourself if you really need it in a laptop of this size), but it's just as practical, is only slightly less powerful, and boasts a significantly better screen for only £350.

I want to like the Envy x360. This convertible almost satisfies my desire for a laptop that can double as a productivity and media-consumption device. Even with its cumbersome size, the large, 15.6-inch touch screen makes good use of Windows 8.1. But the mediocre screen and short battery life make the Envy x360 difficult to recommend.

The HP Envy x360 is not the company’s best effort. Though it wears the premium Envy name, there’s nothing premium about its design, which looks and feels a bit cheap. Many recently reviewed mid-range notebooks, like the Flex 2 and the Acer Aspire E5, either look better, feel more durable, or both.

HP reviews


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

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4830: Slower clocked Mobility Radeon HD 4860 and therefore also based on the 40nm RV740 chip (desktop HD 4700 series). Supports only DDR3 and GDDR3 instead of GDDRR5 in the HD 4860.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5830: The HD 5830 is a slow clocked HD 5850 without GDDR5 support. Because of the 128 Bit memory bus, the used (G)DDR3 should be the bottle neck of this card.

AMD Radeon HD 7690M: Essentially a renamed Radeon HD 6750M, the Radeon HD 7690M shares many of the same specifications but with slightly higher DDR3 memory clock rates

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

AMD Radeon HD 8650G:

An integrated GPU with no dedicated VRAM. It is typically paired with AMD Richland A10 processors.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M: Mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GT 700M series. Based on the Kepler architecture and manufactured by TSMC in a 28nm process.

AMD Radeon HD 8730M: Mid-range graphics card based on the GCN architecture.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GT 700M series. Based on the Kepler architecture and manufactured by TSMC in a 28nm process.

NVIDIA GeForce 840M:

Mid-range graphics card from the GeForce 800M series based on the Maxwell architecture.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.  

720QM: The Core i7-720QM is the slowes Core i7 Quad Core in 2009 and clocks between 1.6 and 2.8 GHz (due to the Turbo Mode). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 720QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.

2670QM: Fast Quad-core processor clocked at 2.2-3.1 GHz based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 

4700MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

4702MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.2 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

AMD A-Series:

A10-5750M: Quad-core processor with only two FPUs and an integrated Radeon HD 8650G graphics card. Top model of the A10 series.

Intel Core i5:

4210U: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.7 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.


15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.1 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.8 kg:

This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.


74.28%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
