The HP Envy 14 is a silver-colored laptop and weighs just over a kilo and a half. It is a laptop designed for mobility and to work from anywhere. Precisely because of this, HP has opted for a 16:10 screen, something that is gradually becoming more common in laptops in this category. Thanks to this format, which is slightly more square than traditional 16:9 screens, the viewing area is maximized (11%, according to HP).
Speaking of the screen, the HP Envy 14 mounts a smooth IPS panel with reduced 14-inch frames. Its resolution is WUXGA (1920 x 1200 pixels), it is capable of reproducing 100% of the sRGB color space, it has a Delta<2 color calibration at the factory, and its maximum brightness is 400 nits. According to HP, the panel occupies 87% of the front. In the upper frame, there is a built-in 720p webcam that can be turned off with a switch.
Inside we find 16 GB of DDR4 3200 RAM and an Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor with a maximum speed of 4.2 GHz thanks to the Turbo Boost technology. It also mounts a 256 GB NVMe M.2 SSD and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti graphics card with a Max-Q design (with 4 GB GDDR6 dedicated memory). Its battery is four cells and 63.3 Wh and incorporates a rapid charging system that is capable of charging 50% of the battery on average, as indicated by the manufacturer.
Other additions that HP has implemented in its new laptop are the fingerprint reader integrated into the keyboard (which is backlit, by the way), direct access to turn off the microphone and the computer, and the standby connectivity system, which allows receiving notifications of new emails or calendar events even when we do not use the computer. It also mounts two Band & Olufsen signed speakers.
In terms of connectivity and ports, the HP Envy 14 has WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5, and support for MU-MIMO technology. It mounts a Thunderbolt 4 port, two USB-A ports, a jack/microphone combo, and an HDMI 2.0, plus an SD card reader. Finally, note that the computer comes with Windows 10 Home pre-installed by default.
