Let's get down to the nuts and bolts. We've seen the hard numbers and the subjective feelings towards this computer, so just where does it stack up? Taking the price into consideration, it does pretty well. The system is currently available directly...

This we know: Windows 8 is more usable with a touchscreen, plain and simple. Whether that’s a practical scenario for tower-and-monitor setups is arguable, but it turns out that using touch on a laptop comes pretty naturally—even more so than we...

The HP Envy Touchsmart 4-1102ed is a touchscreen Ultrabook. It has an energy-efficient Intel Core i5 processor and a TN screen with a resolution of 1366x768 pixels. It's a powerful enough 14-inch Ultrabook, with as only drawback the relatively high...

Overall performance on the HP ENVY TouchSmart 4 is decent for its purposes, but it's definitely lacking some horsepower for those looking to use it for more CPU/GPU intensive applications such as gaming or video editing. For its intended purpose of word...

The HP Envy 4-1035TX is a quality Ultrabook which delivers handful of performance to the user. However all the extra performance comes at the cost of extra weight and size which may get rid of the Ultrabook feel and make it look more like a everyday...

When it comes to the features offered by the HP Envy TouchSmart 4-1102sg we're talking about a powerful mix. The touchscreen, the included external DVD drive and the speakers with a subwoofer lift the notebook distinctly above other media-laptops....

At 4.5 pounds, the HP Envy TouchSmart 4 isn’t the most portable ultrabook on the market. In fact, I’m not sure why Intel insists on grouping notebooks with 14 and 15.6 inch screens into the ultrabook category in the first place, but that’s Intel’s...

Great on the outside, mediocre in all other aspects: the HP Envy 4-1000sg is a mix of good and bad. HP's chassis are usually quite decent - and the Envy 4 is no exception: the aluminum used for the lid and around the palm rest not only looks very...

The addition of the touchscreen drives up the Envy's price, drops the battery life, and makes the Ultrabook heavier than before. None of these trade-offs seem worth it. Touch does make the Windows 8 experience a little more enjoyable on laptops that...

The chief issue, as mentioned, with the Envy TouchSmart Ultrabook 4 is its weight. To be fair, HP is hardly alone - I've seen a number of Ultrabooks, including older, non-touch based systems come in at over four pounds. If the heft doesn't bother you,...

It's getting hard to tell HP's thin and light consumer laptops apart: from the upcoming $1,399.99 Envy Spectre XT TouchSmart to the lowly $579.99 Envy Sleekbook 6, they all share extremely similar chassis. Only the quality of the materials and...

The Envy 4 is a good looking and well-made laptop for the price. It's not as attractive at Lenovo's U410, though, and battery life is the only real standout feature. We prefer the U410's extra gaming power, but the Envy 4 remains a sensible choice if...
