Reviews for the HP Envy 13-ba1033tx

100% HP Envy 13 review: A small but perfectly formed laptop
Source: Expert Reviews English
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 such as 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.

70% HP Envy 13 (2021) review
Source: Tech Advisor English
The HP Envy 13 is a decent mainstream laptop, but it struggles to stand out – it’s got a superb screen, but that’s the only area where it truly excels. Elsewhere, the Envy 13 has decent design, a reasonable keyboard and good battery life alongside solid performance from the Core i5 CPU and Nvidia GPU. Negatively, though, its competitors are slimmer and more robust, and the Envy’s connectivity and trackpad are mediocre. The HP is ordinary in too many areas, and that means its pricier Core i7 versions are not worth buying when so many rivals are sleeker, stronger and no more expensive. But if the competition is a bit too pricey, the Core i5 model is a reasonable alternative if you’d like a decent ultraportable on a budget.

NVIDIA GeForce MX450: Gimped GeForce GTX 1650 (Turing TU117) based entry level GPU with GDDR5 or GDDR6 graphics memory. Available in 4 different variants, where the LP = low power version with 12 Watt TGP is the slowest.

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

This i7 features the 96 EU Intel Iris Xe G7 iGPU; it was the second-fastest CPU of TGL-UP3 line-up when Intel initially launched the series in 2020.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.

90%: There are not very many models that are rated better. Most of the assessments are in percentage ranges below that. The tested product is not considered perfect, but the sources give a clear purchase recommendation.
