Model:

It is increasingly common to see notebooks with a large 15 inch screen, and the HP Envy 15 series is one of those. The 15.4 inch display is definitely its main attraction, with 1920 x 1080 resolution and 16:9 ratio widescreen. This screen size ensures easy viewing of simple videos and the resolution is sufficient for many modern games. However, the viewing angle are narrow and color vibrancy and contrast are only mediocre.

The design looks simple and understated, suitable for the everyday low profile users that doesn't want much sass or pizazz in their device. Lid and keypad are from durable silver plastics. It is slightly thicker than average at 2.81 cm, and is quite heavy for a notebook at 2.8 kg. The Intel LG1156 Core i7-4510U Haswell dual core processor can clock up to 3.2 GHz when the turbo mode kicks in.

The integrated Intel HD 4400 graphics card is apt for the average graphic tasks. As an added bonus, HP has bundled in an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M graphics card for demanding games. This will definitely attract gamers who are looking for device which can handle both serious tasks and entertaining gameplay.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M: Upper mid-range graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
4510U: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.1 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
