At CES 2021, HP has announced the Envy 14 aimed at mobile content creators. The Envy 14 offers a combination of the Core i5-1135G7 and NVIDIA GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q and comes with a 14-inch IPS touch display that is color-calibrated out of the box.

Last year, HP offered the Envy 15 with a 45 W Comet Lake-H CPU and an RTX 2060 Max-Q GPU. This year, HP is introducing a lower variant called the Envy 14 with Tiger Lake-U processors and NVIDIA GTX graphics primarily aimed at content creators on the move.

Unlike several other HP devices launching today, the Envy 14's spec sheet does not seem to list too many configuration options. The Envy 14 is powered by the Intel Tiger Lake Core i5-1135G7 that is paired with 16 GB of soldered DDR4-3200 RAM. The default configuration offers 256 GB of NVMe storage.

An NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q drives the 14-inch 16:10 1,920 x 1,200 IPS touch display that has a brightness of 400 nits and is rated to cover 100% of the sRGB color gamut. HP says that the Envy 14 is the company's most color-accurate 14-inch laptop to date with the display being calibrated to attain a Delta E of less than 2 right out of the box. HP also offers the Display Control app to set the display settings based on the creative scenario.

Network connectivity is ensured by an Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201 card that also offers Bluetooth 5. Port selection is comprised of 1x Thunderbolt 4, 2x USB 3.1 Type-A, 1x HDMI 2.0-out, and a combo audio jack. A microSD card reader is also available. A 720p webcam with an integrated privacy shutter is provided. The Envy 14 offers HP Enhanced Lighting that uses the display brightness to enhance selfies for video calls.

A 4-cell 63.3 WHr battery keeps the device ticking. HP rates the battery life at about 16.5 hours thanks to dynamic power sharing between the CPU and GPU via HP Dynamic Power and says that the battery can be charged from zero to 50% in about 30 minutes. Other features include a fingerprint reader, backlit all-in-one keyboard, and HP's suite of apps for consumer devices.

The HP Envy 14 will be available from hp.com in January at prices starting from US$999.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
