Reviews for the HP Envy 13-ad142ng
Source: KL Gadget Guy
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.

CommentNVIDIA 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. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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.
8550U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,150 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
