So how does it stack against its competitors? Well, it fails to impress or really stand out from the crowd, although seemingly the HP Envy 13 is a good device. It’s just that it’s hard to recommend over the ASUS ZenBook UX310, the Lenovo Ideapad 720s or the Acer Aspire S 13, for example. All of them have better overall displays, build quality or just offer something unique that makes them stand out. Case in point the ZenBook Ux310 configurations with discrete GPUs.
