HP Envy Touchsmart 15
The HP Envy Touchsmart 15 has a sleek understated design, with a circular HP logo in the center of its lid. The notebook’s wedge-shaped aluminum unibody chassis is thickest nearest the hinge.
Inside, the silvery deck is offset by a black island-style keyboard, which is surrounded by a small indent with a red border. A set of quad Beats Audio speakers rests above the keyboard, while two Beats subwoofers rest on the black underside.
Users will find the power button resting prominently in the upper left corner of the keyboard deck, while a fingerprint sensor lies at the bottom right.
At 14.94 x 9.87 x 1.18 inches, the Touchsmart 15 is slightly wider than the Samsung ATIV Book 6 (14.75 x 9.8 x 0.9 inches) but not as wide as the ASUS N550JV (15.08 x 10.03 x 1.09 inches). The 5.6-pound Touchsmart 15 is a bit hefty to carry around, weighing more than the 5.4-pound ATIV Book 6 but less than the 5.7-pound ASUS N550JV.
DisplayLike the ATIV Book 6 and the ASUS N550JV, the Touchsmart’s 15-inch BrightView LED touch- screen display boasts a resolution of 1920 x 1080. The Touchsmart did an impressive job playing the 1080p “Gravity” trailer, as it conveyed the film’s devastating images of a space shuttle being destroyed over planet Earth in rich detail. The trailer was still clear while we watched at a 75-degree viewing angle, making the Touchsmart suitable for multiple viewers. – See more at: http://www.laptopmag.com/reviews/laptops/hp-envy-touchsmart-15#sthash.0jsR51o9.dpuf
