The HP Envy 14 is part of the new breed of productivity-focused laptops. It’s not quite an ultrabook, being a little thicker and heavier than the sort of hardware you might expect to see in that category, although it successfully employs a little design trickery to make it look slimmer than it is. Whatever your chosen categorisation, it’s delightfully compact and built perfectly for working hard and looking good doing it.
The large 16:10 screen is an absolute highlight, and although it’s not perfect – its touch screen is quick but we found it buggy in certain edge-case situations – it offers excellent contrast, with a pixel-dense 1920×1200 resolution that’s a real joy to work with.
