Reviews for the HP Envy 4-1020ea

60% HP Envy 4-1020ea review
Source: PC Advisor English
The Envy 4 is a good looking and well-made laptop for the price. It's not as attractive at Lenovo's U410, though, and battery life is the only real standout feature. We prefer the U410's extra gaming power, but the Envy 4 remains a sensible choice if you need to work away from the mains.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display.

2.7 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.
