HP Envy 13 ultra-portable: beautiful but expensive

A neat finish

Image 1: HP Envy 13 ultra-portable: beautiful but expensiveWith its Envy range, HP comes to hunt on the lands of Apple’s Macbook Pro. Finishing with onions and autonomy are the watchwords of this 13 inch version. However, will he be able to justify his excessive price?

With the Envy 13, HP is trying to copy the Macbook Pro. High-end notebook if ever there was one, this ultra portable is adorned with a solid shell that combines aluminum and magnesium. However, despite its relatively small dimensions, it is particularly heavy which can be disabling if you have to transport it all day. But don’t be fooled by appearances. Indeed, HP delivers two batteries, one of which is removable for tenfold autonomy. The latter is cleverly integrated under the computer to the point that we didn’t even notice it when we unpacked it. In any case, it will be enough to put it aside to lighten the Envy 13 whose autonomy is already very correct.
