Is the Nvidia GPU a reason to buy the Envy 13? Well, that depends entirely on what you plan on doing with it. If you want an ultracompact that can sustain some pretty serious gaming and tasks like video rendering then that answer is unquestionably yes. Games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Wolfenstein: Youngblood are perfectly playable and the Envy will render video faster than any equivalent laptop that relies on an Iris Xe graphics chip. Take the Nvidia GPU out of the equation and the Envy is still a very compelling package, offering a good display and keyboard, great battery life and a decent sound system all wrapped up in a stylish, solid and compact body. It’s an easy recommendation.

Everything else about the Envy 13 is either better or as good as it was before. The 1080p display is bright and vivid, the keyboard is a joy to type on, and you still get a Thunderbolt 4 input along with two USB Type-A ports for connecting mice, keyboards or webcams. Bringing an 11th Gen Intel CPU onboard has improved a winning formula. Our Core i5 model impressed in real-world and benchmark tests, and the Envy 13 lasted for almost 11 hours on a charge.
