Reviews for the HP Envy 13-aq0005ng

90% HP Envy 13t 2019 review
Source: Techradar English
The HP Envy 13t puts a lot into one package, going premium in many ways while keeping the price well below some of its competitors. The laptop’s design earns it plenty of credit, and its overall performance leaves little to be desired outside of serious multi-core workloads. Among its contemporaries, the HP Envy 13t is an excellent-value Ultrabook. But, with Intel Ice Lake and Intel Comet Lake CPUs showing up, the Ultrabook market is likely to get a lot more competitive soon.

The Envy 13 has cemented its standing as the ultimate laptop for college students or travelers. Along with 11-plus hours of battery life (on the FHD model), the Envy 13 has a sleek, ultraportable chassis, fast performance, and powerful speakers. Best of all, the Envy 13 starts at a reasonable $799, which is hundreds less than the competition. In many ways, the Envy 13 is what we wanted the new MacBook Air to be.

HP Envy 13 (2019) review: Great performance, great price
Source: Pocket Lint English
Most important of all, though, the HP Envy 13 is still a beacon of fiscal reasonableness in a sea of metal laptops that start at over £1000 (this one is meant to, by SRP, but it's available for much less).

90% HP Envy 13 (2019) review: HP proves its design chops
Source: Neowin English
The HP Envy 13 is a dream to use, and it comes in a beautiful chassis. I'd complain about the lack of Thunderbolt 3 and the lack of an IR camera if it were a Spectre x360, but it's not. This is a step below that. The only real downside is the battery life, and you can always make up for that by getting the 1080p model. You're never going to get great battery life on a 4K laptop, no matter which one you choose.

HP might not have changed the design of the Envy 13 much for 2019 but generally it didn't need to as it still looks and feels great. Importantly, this is still an affordable Windows 10 laptop with impressive specs including an Nvidia MX250 graphics cards where many rivals rely on integrated GPUs. We're also impressed with improvements to the trackpad, screen and battery life.

Comment

Model: Just as much as the name itself suggests, the HP Envy 13 is a 13-inch model. There are evident improvements catered towards its clientele’s satisfaction. Not only customers can now experience the enhancement in visuals through the replacement of a better graphics card, the Envy 13 also capitalizes on several intriguing but crucial elements waiting to be explored by its audience. Before mentioning the specifics in question, the HP Envy 13 measures as thin as 14.7 millimeter and weighs approximately 1.179 kilograms. It is perhaps one of the lightest, if not sleekest, premium laptop design to avail itself to the market. For some peculiar reason, the HP Envy 13’s design alone has yet to receive any celebratory applause from the global audience. It seemed to be the case that the majority of the tech-savvy community has seen their fair share of ultra-thin laptops and has become less and less awed by the prospect of it. However, the HP Envy 13 does not solely rely on its physical design alone as its selling point, but rather, on how it methodically works its way around in managing user’s privacy concerns.

The HP Envy 13 houses innovative security features, which guarantee to add an extra precautionary measure towards its clientele’s privacy concerns through the introduction of the Webcam Kill Switch as an optional safeguard functionality. The Webcam Kill Switch effectively cuts off the power linking to the front-facing camera of the monitor screen and thus prevents potential hackers or snoopers from gazing into our personal lives. Intrusion of privacy through digital means has been a recurring controversial issue and a grave concern in Western culture as it has been made aware to modern society that there could be someone on the other end of the screen who ought to be constantly monitoring our daily life. HP has taken this into account through the debut of the Webcam Kill Switch in one of their more established laptop units under the banner of the Spectre series back in 2018. Since then, the considerate progressiveness of the Webcam Kill Switch has availed itself to HP’s later releases, including but not limited to, the HP Envy 13. In addition, the HP Envy 13 also has a built-in biometric fingerprint reader designed as an alternative unlock feature should the user ever by happenstance forgot the security code to access their laptop. This feature will undoubtedly be a hit among students, whose grades mostly rely on the dependency on how well their laptops can operate from the get-go. Needless to say, memorizing passwords is one less thing crossed off from a long stressful to-do-list.

NVIDIA GeForce MX250: Successor of the MX150 and still based on the same Pascal GP108 chip (similar to the desktop GT 1030) but with higher clock speeds. Available in two versions, a normal 25 Watt version and a low power version with 10 Watt TDP and reduced performance. The 25 Watt version e.g. offers a 21% higher boost clock than the old MX150 leading to a 5% performance gain.

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.  

8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

13.3":

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.

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
