HP ENVY 14
Powered by the latest Intel Tiger Lake platform in the Core i5-1135 G7, the new 14-inch ENVY gets off on its right foot, but the new laptop also features an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q graphics card, which means that this portable laptop there are some very powerful graphics available in non-gaming laptops. The laptop offers 16 GB DDR4-3200 and 256 GB M.2 SSD.
The biggest change this year, however, is the introduction of a higher 16:10 display, similar to what we’ve seen in several laptops in the last few months. The IPS panel with a resolution of 1920×1200 offers 400 nits of brightness and covers 100% of the sRGB color range. It also includes a touch, and the frames offer an 87% screen to body ratio.
The laptop features an anodized aluminum sandblasted coating, which means it doesn’t have to be as big as a fingerprint magnet as some of the glossier coatings.
ENVY 14 offers many connectivity options, with one Thunderbolt 4 port as well as two USB Type-A ports for older devices. It has an HDMI 2.0 output as well as a Micro SD card reader.
Intel’s Wi-Fi 6 AX201 network adapter powers the wireless network and carries Bluetooth 5.0.
ENVY 14 offers above average battery capacity at 63 Wh, so battery life should be pretty good. It also has a 135-watt AC adapter.
The new ENVY 14 will be available in January on HP.com from $ 999.
