 The HP Envy 14 is a 14.5'' premium notebook. It is an addition to the Envy notebook lineup alongside the Envy 13, Envy 15, and Envy 17. Unlike previous Envy notebooks (13, 15), the Envy 14 features a built-in optical drive. As HP's Premium 14.5'' notebook, it is highly customisable with Intel processors ranging from budget oriented Core i3, to the high performance Core i7 quad core processors. One of its main selling point is the combination of ATI's mid range HD5650 graphics processor along with Intel's integrated graphics which allows for the user to switch between the two depending on usage (ie. dedicated for gaming, integrated for word processing). Other components include: up to 8GB DDR3 ram, up to 256GB solid state drives, and wireless N connectivity. Some notable features include the HP Radiance display which is a high quality panel with a higher gamut, meaning it is able to reproduce a larger range of colours and doing so more accurately, the 8 cell battery offered is also rare among 14'' notebooks. Other features includes HD webcam, backlit keyboard, and multi-touch trackpad. The HP Envy 14 is a powerful yet portable notebook, it offers a perfect balance for on-the-go users looking for a media power house.
