HP Envy 14 review: Performance for creatives in an unassuming package

A pleasant showcase, discrete illustrations and an implicit ring light capacity make the Envy 14 a strong section level PC for makers.



You realize the articulation about having the correct instruments for the work? In case you’re making a PC focused on creatives, it’s insufficient to simply place discrete designs and a solid processor in a thin body. The additional exhibition definitely should be matched with a decent showcase, and that is the thing that you get with the most recent HP Envy 14. The PC’s 16:10 14-inch 1,920×1,200-pixel show not just gives you more vertical space to work, yet is shading aligned at the production line and covers 100% of the sRGB shading extent. The outcome is a balanced choice for creatives searching for in a hurry execution at a sensible cost.

The Envy 14 begins at a touch more than $1,000 however the arrangement I tried sells for $1,260. A comparative design sells for AU$2,500 in Australia and £1,400 in the UK. That base arrangement has coordinated designs and only 8GB of locally available memory, which undermines its worth as a PC for creatives. The additional cash for my situation adds double the memory and great passage level Nvidia discrete illustrations. And keeping in mind that my setup wasn’t pushed to the limit with a Core i7 processor, the Core i5 gave a lot of execution muscle when joined with different segments (however the 256GB SSD is little for the cash).

The Envy 14 may appear to be expensive, yet it is more moderate than different PCs intended for makers and creatives. Likewise, you can discover the Nvidia GTX 1650 and 1650 Ti GPUs utilized in the Envy 14 out of a more affordable gaming PC. In any case, it will not be in a minimal 14-inch case or have a showcase like the Envy 14’s. Most gaming workstations don’t keep going long away from an outlet, either, while this HP ran for 11 hours in our real time video test. You likewise will not get the wide range of various highlights HP packs in here.

A portion of those additional highlights are programming related, similar to HP’s Command Center to help you control cooling (the Envy 14 has new fans, heat pipes and an IR thermopile sensor to help distinguish temperature and hold it within proper limits) and direct organization data transmission to explicit applications. There’s additionally HP Display Control for picking adjusted presets for whatever you’re doing, like photograph or video altering. At that point there’s HP’s QuickDrop include, which allows you right away to send documents, photographs, recordings, URLs and different things from your telephone or different gadgets to the Envy 14. Indeed, sort of like Apple’s AirDrop.

Likely the most fascinating expansion is HP’s Enhanced Lighting application, however. It basically utilizes the 400-nit splendor of the presentation as a ring light to help light up your face for video talks. You can get a comparative outcome by putting a clear Word doc on your presentation and turning the splendor, however clearly the application makes it simpler and you can change the tone from cool to warm.

You can change the width of the ring, transform it into a crate or just set up vertical or even bars at the edges of the presentation. It’s astute and unquestionably a “For what reason hasn’t anybody done this before on a PC?” include. I simply wish the picture quality from the webcam were better paying little heed to lighting.

Looks like it

The Envy 14 isn’t just about as fastidious as HP’s Specter line. With the cover shut, it’s genuinely unexceptional yet alluring – simply a straightforward section of silver. There’s a hole between the top and the base and, as a result of it, there’s some flex in the body at the edges and at the back. Lift up the cover and you’re welcomed with its vivid showcase encompassed by thin bezels so that you’re taking a gander at essentially all screen.

The console is wide and agreeable and the touchpad is smooth and responsive – no issues there by any stretch of the imagination. On the capacity key line alongside media controls and screen and console backdrop illumination splendor, you’ll discover alternate routes for impeding the webcam and quieting the mic. In the event that the previous year has expanded the measure of time you spend on video telephone calls, you’ll get exactly that it is so ideal to have these. The Envy 14 has improved conferencing highlights, including AI clamor expulsion to tidy up your sound when utilizing its underlying mics.

The PC’s port grouping is a decent counterpart for its proposed clients, including a HDMI-out and a Thunderbolt 4 port (in spite of the fact that it would sound good to me to have a full-size SD card space rather than the microSD opening HP incorporates). There’s a unique mark peruser for simple sign-ins too.

The HP Envy 14 gives creatives and makers a strong section level choice. From its solid exhibition to its appealing reduced plan to its pleasant 16:10 aligned presentation, it’s even more a total bundle than something like Acer’s Swift 3X. The Swift 3X is focused on similar clients as the Envy 14 and performed well in our tests. HP simply gives you more highlights like the security controls for the webcam and mic and a superior showcase. In addition, the Envy end up being better for gaming, hitting in excess of 40 casings each second on high settings for games, for example, Far Cry V, while the Swift on normal didn’t break 30fps. The Envy 14 may be a smidgen more costly, however in the end it’s a superior fit for its planned client.
