60% HP Envy TouchSmart Ultrabook 4
Source: Digital Versus English
The HP Envy TouchSmart Ultrabook 4 is a 14-inch ultrabook that sells for around £800. This is a sleek ultrabook with a quality chassis and great processing power for the asking price. But until HP decides to put some effort into the screen and audio—which, after all, are some of the things it's advertising—it will never catch up with Asus and Apple.

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

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.1 kg:
