HP Envy 13-ad006ng

With its more than decent specs for its given size and price bracket, the HP Envy 13 seems to have struck a chord with the ultrabook market. It seems like yesterday when most ultraportables had to sacrifice graphics horsepower for elegance and style. So, what exactly does the HP Envy 13 pack under the hood that allows it to beat the competition? To begin with, it is equipped with an Intel Core i7-7500U processor with 8GB of memory, 360GB of superfast NVMe-based storage and, the star of the show, the Nvidia Geforce MX150. Just looking at the HP Envy 13 chassis would most likely rub ultrabook users the wrong way: With its all-aluminum construction and conformist egalitarian design, it is no wonder HP always wins in the elegance and design department. For its given price bracket, the HP Envy 13 is actually cheaper than major competitors such as the Macbook Pro 13 or even the Dell XPS 13, yet is able to pack powerful graphics. In terms of portability, the HP Envy 13 weighs about 1.38 kg, which means you will be more than willing to bring it with you everywhere. In the IO department, the HP Envy 13 is endowed with 2 USB Type-C ports, 2 USB Type-A 3.1 ports, a microSD slot, and a headphone jack, which is not too shabby. It seems that the HP Envy 13 absolutely destroys the Macbook Pro as far as connectivity goes. As for the display, the HP Envy 13 is equipped with a standard IPS-FHD panel which is decent, nonetheless. Overall, the display’s contrast is good, but color vibrancy is just about okay. It should be noted that the display also has touch capability, which is a plus. Brightness-wise, the HP Envy 13 is not chart-topping, but performs reasonably well.

Next on the list is user input: With a full-sized keyboard that looks posh, the HP Envy 13 is indeed trying to compromise as little as possible. The good key travel distances and feedback  can surely make a typist’s day without feeling as if typos are all over the place. The keyboard is additionally equipped with backlighting for the night typists out there. While the touchpad is small, it should be understood that, for a notebook of this size, there are some components that are going to take a hit eventually. The included trackpad and clickpad combo is not all that bad on the HP Envy 13, as the clicks are well defined. It should be okay for the clickpad and touchpad separation purists out there. Naturally, the highlight of the HP Envy 13 is its included graphics horsepower, which, it is safe to say, performs well. Some games are able to run on high settings without feeling sluggish, while with certain games you are going to have to make sacrifices with the graphics quality, although being able to play at medium to high settings should satisfy most users, if not all. Of course, all this would be for naught if the battery life were abysmal. But the HP Envy 13 beats the Macbook Air 13, it lasts just over 12 hours on light tasks, so it should last you throughout the day. A special comment should be made on the built-in speakers from Bang & Olufsen, which are another plus point for travelers who want to binge on some media content on the go. The overall sound quality is good, and while the maximum volume will not leave you quivering, it certainly is a welcome addition. To conclude, with its given hardware and price bracket, the HP Envy 13 makes a compelling argument for the best ultrabook of the current generation, but users might want to wait and see how the competition strikes back.

81% HP Envy 13 Review: An Ultrabook With a Dedicated Graphics Chip
Source: KL Gadget Guy English
Overall HP has produced in my opinion, one of the best-looking ultrabooks out there with its sleek profile and specs to match it, making it a really strong competitor in the ultrabook market. Sure there might be some minor flaws in the build of the laptop but it is by far one of the first ultrabooks that comes with a dedicated graphics chip and that itself should place it in a league of its own. But just like all ultrabooks, there is a hefty price tag of RM5499, if the price is not an issue to you, then the Envy 13 will be one of the newer ultrabooks that you should look out for.

At the end of the day, the HP Envy 13 is still a very interesting productivity-focused laptop with very respectable gaming performance. Currently, it is also the only 13-inch laptop with an MX150 GPU; this factor alone makes it a very compelling ultraportable for those who want to do more than just productivity tasks.

HP Envy 13-ad109ns

The HP Envy 13-ad109ns is an ultraportable laptop manufactured by Hewlett-Packard. The company has recently updated its catalog of laptops, adding the new HP Envy series to the collection. With this series, the company has chosen to prioritize portability, without neglecting aspects as important as the design and hardware capabilities of the new members of this range. This particular laptop boasts dimensions of 30.5 x 21.5 cm, a thickness of only 13.9 millimeters, and a light weight of just 1.38 kg. The device is very light, because it is made entirely of silver metallic aluminum. Its QWERTY keyboard is LED backlit and integrates slightly larger keys to facilitate daily office work. Thanks to its portable and ultra-lightweight design, the HP Envy 13-ad109ns is perfect for traveling everywhere. In addition, its latest generation Intel processor and NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics featuring a VRAM GDDR5 memory of 2 GB will allow users to do all kinds of tasks without delay wherever they are. Some of the laptop’s greatest strengths reside in its metallic construction of only 1.38 kg and in the 8th-generation processor, the Intel Core i7-8550U, belonging to the new Coffee-Lake family. Other advantages of this portable include 8 GB of LPDDR3 RAM, a low-energy 256GB SSD, dual-band WiFi (2.4 and 5 GHz) and two USB-3.1 Type-C ports with reversible output and transfer speeds of up to 5 Gbps.

As for the display, it features a bright 13.3-inch panel with WLED backlight technology and a Full-HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. It features low power consumption, an aspect ratio of 16:9, and high levels of brightness as well as contrast when it comes to reproducing images, videos, movies, games and other multimedia content. In-plane Switching (IPS) technology guarantees optimal readability from almost any angle, since it covers 178 degrees both horizontally and vertically. It is worth highlighting the 3-cell lithium battery. Thanks to its power of 51 Wh, it gives users up to 8 hours with light usage such as office work and other activities. In addition, although it does not have fast charge, the total recharge of the battery is estimated at about 130 minutes, or 2.1 hours. Users have the advantage of two USB-3.1 inputs and another two USB-3.1 Type-C ports. Although there is no HDMI output, one can make use of USB Type-C to HDMI adapters. Other connectivity options include a 3.5-mm audio jack, a microSD card reader, as well as an HD webcam and digital microphone for video calls. The HP Envy 13-ad109ns is a high-end laptop aimed at heavy users.

This slim, attractive laptop is a genuine bargain. If you want perfection, but if that’s beyond what you’re prepared to spend on a laptop, then the new HP Envy 13 is the next best thing.

HP: The Hewlett-Packard Company, founded 1935, commonly referred to as HP, is a technology corporation headquartered in California, United States. HP specializes in developing and manufacturing computing, storage, and networking hardware, software and services. Major product lines include personal computing devices, enterprise servers, related storage devices, as well as a diverse range of printers and other imaging products. Other product lines, including electronic test equipment and systems, medical electronic equipment, solid state components and instrumentation for chemical analysis. HP posted US $91.7 billion in annual revenue in 2006, making it the world's largest technology vendor in terms of sales. In 2007 the revenue was $104 billion, making HP the first IT company in history to report revenues exceeding $100 billion. 

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.

 

In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce MX150: Pascal GP108 based laptop graphics card and mobile version of the desktop GeForce GT 1030. Offers 384 shader cores and usually 2 GB GDDR5 with a 64 Bit memory bus. Manufactured in 14nm.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
