Fans of notebooks with large screens will be overjoyed with HP’s latest offering, the HP Envy 15 series. Not all notebooks in the market offer such large screens, especially for gaming or entertainment. The 15.6 inch FHD LED backlit Touchscreen features a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. This is sufficient that user do not have troubles seeing details, but small enough to keep the notebook relatively light. The hardware includes a 1.7 GHz Intel Core i5-421OU processor with integrated HD 4400 Graphics card and a NVIDIA GeForce 840M graphics card for moderately demanding games.
There is a 750 GB storage hard disk for all your important data. This HP series of notebooks purportedly provides a high quality built and robustness. The 4-cell battery is sufficient to power the laptop for several hours. A software suite for most of the general purpose computer tasks, such as surfing the net and office related tasks, is included. However, given the price, one might consider more affordable options.
