As the name suggests, the HP Envy 4-1120SW is the envy of every ultrabook with is elegant design, premium feel and color injection. The brush aluminium cover with the red frame, while being slightly thicker than other ultrabooks', has its own design which totally rocks. The hardware includes an Intel Core i5-3317U clocked at 1.7 GHz with 3 MB L3 cache, 6 GB DDR3 RAM; upgradeable to 16 GB total, and an Intel HD Graphics 4000 GPU.

This capable setup is combined with a 14 inch HD BrightView LED-backlit panel. Picture quality is very good with vivid colors and brightness levels. The storage device is a 500 GB SATA hard drive which is more than enough for the average on-the-go multimedia junkie. The sound quality is another well thought of aspect with Beats Audio taking center stage. The 2 speakers and HP Triple Bass reflex subwoofer certainly deliver crisp highs and solid lows.

There is a full-size keyboard packed into the HP Envy 4-1120SW with island-style keys which are fully backlit. Even the touchpad is engineered well and it comes with an on/off button which reduces accidental touch when using an external mouse. Weighing at 1.8 kg, the HP Envy 4-1120SW is a portable setup and can go the distance with the 4-cell Li-ion polymer battery as its power source.
