82% Review HP Envy TouchSmart 4-1102sg Ultrabook | Notebookcheck
Be envious. A touchscreen, strong speakers and a 32 GB SSD cache sounds like a powerful combination. Quick, clever, and versatile - but how well does the HP Envy Touchsmart 4-1102sg Ultrabook really perform the balancing act between tablet and notebook?

On the whole, this Envy has a thoughtfully executed design. The visual and tactile experience isn't perfect, but your eyes and hands will appreciate the attention to detail. As a machine that's perfectly fit for office and home tasks the Envy TouchSmart 4t-1102 Sleekbook is a very sweet machine. It's reassuring to know that a well balanced laptop that's practical, fun to use, and handsome, can shine in a market that's crammed with boring clones born from half baked execution.

Despite the Envy 4’s slight speed advantage and its lower price, we’d be inclined to plunk down the additional $100 for the Yoga. That laptop has a far superior screen, a better keyboard and touchpad, a sturdier build quality, and the ability to fold into a tablet for times when that makes sense. And did we mention that it weighs more than a pound less?
