HP’s Envy line of laptops are the excellent computers they create for clients, with their concentrate on strong specifications, sleek plan, and premium stuff. The new example were just available in 15.6 and 17-inch sizes, so those who needed Envy plan and function with a little more movability were out of luck. Now, HP is elaborating the line with a slick fresh addition, the HP Envy 14 Spectre.
For the record, we actually wished the actual Envy 14, back in 2010. Unfortunately, the system stayed largely the similar a year after, while the rest of the laptop market had impressed on to better and better plan. Equated to the rest of the market, the 2011 edition of the Envy 14 was unremarkable. Fortunately, the Envy 14 Spectre assumes so large leap forward in various field.
To start with, it is dramatically littler than previous year’s Envy 14. At 12.8 by 8.7 inches, it is not closely as broad or deep as the 14 by 9.3-inch Envy 14 of previous year. It is much thinner as well, at 0.78“. Best of all, the Spectre sheds close to 2 pounds from the 5.6-pound Envy 14 - it tips the scales at 3.79 pounds. The Spectre’s display is half an inch littler than the 14.5-inch display on the former Envy 14, but the resolution has really developed to 1600 through 900.
That entire sounds similar to great news, but we are not in the age of large fat laptops anymore. We are in the age of Ultrabooks, and when the Spectre technically qualifies for the label, it is observably thicker and heavier than most of the laptops that carry that brand. We have seen ultra movable for years that were 0.8 inches thick and weighed only below 4 pounds. It is not a vast trouble, but HP would do well to steer clear of the Ultra portable brand on this one; I imagine it adjust expectations for size and weight that will only disappoint users. The good news is that this somewhat ticker and heavier Ultrabook plan affords room for more complete-sized ports and a keyboard with a small more key travel.
It would be an HP Envy product with Beats integration, and of course you will search that here. Assuming a queue from the new Envy 15 and 17, there is an analog volume dial on the right side, along with a mute button and “Beats” button. I am not a fan of more button and knobs, but this is a case where more is excellent; an analog dial is a much simpler way to control volume than pressing few function key multiple times, and a dedicated, simple-to-search mute button can arrive in rather handy.
