Cheap Ultrabook, 4 Million, 4GB RAM, HP Envy 4 TouchSmart
This is not the HP Envy 4, HP’s Ultrabook released last year but the HP Envy 4 TouchSmart, an Ultrabook equipped with touch screen capabilities. Its appearance is indeed similar with a touch of all-black brushed aluminum on the outside and silver for the interior. Also still using a soft leather-textured plastic material to make it comfortable to carry and look classy. The 14-inch wide screen will make your fingers free to do activities there. And, most importantly, the screen is very accurate and responsive so you will be very comfortable navigating various applications with a touch. Unfortunately, HP only provides a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels which, although sufficient, would be more enjoyable if the resolution was added for added convenience when watching videos, for example.
Even though it is touch screen capable, HP still provides a large trackpad which is also responsive and supported by multi-gestures for your convenience to navigate and operate. Two-finger scrolling and four-finger swipe were smooth throughout the test. While the chiclet keyboard is also able to provide comfort when used for long durations of typing thanks to the response and the right distance between the keys. Like other HP outputs, Eny 4 TouchSmart is also reinforced with Beats Audio for your convenience to hear the strains of sound from there. There is also still an integrated subwoofer so that the bass sound will sound more solid than other Ultrabooks in this class.
There were no surprises in the performance test of the Envy 4 TouchSmart, which uses a dual-core ultra low voltage (ULV) Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5-3337U 1.8 GHz processor, 4 GB RAM, and 500 GB HDD and 32 GB SSD hybrid storage. However, this Ultrabook achieves above average results in all categories of PCMark 7 testing. But the opposite results are shown in the 3DMark Vantage test. The absence of a discrete graphics card and relying only on an Intel HD 4000 graphics card makes the Envy 4 TouchSmart only capable of playing various DX10 games with low settings and a resolution of 1280 x 720. The HP Envy 4 TouchSmart is not dedicated to gamers, so the game testing results above can be ignored. but the used price reaches Rp. 4,900,000 in Tokopedia, we think it’s quite ideal. Battery life, which reaches three hours if used to watch videos continuously, can be an additional point. This will be suitable for those of you who have high mobility and productivity who certainly don’t mind spending that deep.
