Reviews for the HP Envy 13-d007tu
There are some deficiencies to the Envy 13, in particular its display, but it does offer good value to consumers looking for a well-designed laptop in the $800 to $1,000 laptop market. The fact you can get a Core i5 CPU with a QHD+ display for just $849 is particularly compelling, and models around that price point are the sweet spot for HP’s ultrathin laptop.
