HP Envy 4 has an Intel Core i3 (Sandy Bridge) and is therefore in effect a ultrabook. The construction under consideration is composed of dual-core processor Intel Core i3-2367M 1.4 GHz, 4 GB of DDR3 RAM, expandable to 16 GB, 5400 RPM Hitachi hard drive and 500 GB capacity and 14-inch display with HD resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. Mechanically, the HP Envy 4t it seemed excellent. The shell is made of anodized aluminum with a brushed finish and black coloring and is characterized by simple lines but pleasant and very contemporary.
Although not thin or light as other ultrabook on the market, the HP Envy 4 still has a maximum thickness of 19.8 mm and a weight of 1.7 kg, then measures sufficient for most users looking for a solution and ultra fine prepared to carry around with him all day, but that does not cost over $ 1000. The HP Envy 4T taken into account in setting it costs about $ 699. Even those good feelings aroused by the keyboard and touchpad.
The first type has a layout and is backlit chiclet and, apparently, does not suffer the slightest of inflections that would impair the comfort of use and effectiveness of typing. The second is produced by Synaptics and is a ClickPad, ie a touchpad without dedicated keys: the surface pressure at any point will then work from left click, except in the lower right, to which is delegated function instead of right click . The touchpad is large and very responsive, but colleagues have put forward some reservations about ClickPad solution, not everyone is comfortable and functional.
With regard to the hardware platform, the model received still mounts an Intel Sandy Bridge instead of the last Ivy Bridge. The performance, however, were deemed more than enough to comfortably carry all the typical daily tasks. On the other hand, storage, although the Envy 4 can not be equipped with an SSD, you can still match a certain amount of traditional NAND Flash hard drive in order to improve performance, thanks to Intel Rapid Start. In this case, however, was present on only one hard disk, and whose performance is aligned to the average equivalent devices.
