HP’s Envy 13t confirms that you do not have to break the bank to get a lightweight laptop with heavy doses of performance and style. This 2.9-pound ultrabook packs the power of an Intel 8th Gen Core processor, the classiness of an all-metal chassis and the expediency of all-day battery life. It also has one of the best keyboards on the market. Higher-priced competitors offer more lively displays and even longer endurance, but overall the HP Envy 13t is a fantastic value, particularly for college students on a tight budget.
The HP Envy 13t adds some original touches that make it show up. The matte aluminum lid has a tiny incline in the back that covers the hinge, offering it clean, sleek lines.
It has a fair selection of ports, which comprises two standard USB 3.0 connections and two USB-C ports, with one of each on either side. There is also a microSD card slot and a 3.5mm audio jack.
The 1080p, 13.3-inch touch screen on the Envy 13t provides decent image quality.
The audio output is perfect enough for listening to dialog in movies or Skyping.
The keyboard of HP Envy 13t is so good that it alone makes this laptop a convincing option for students or productivity workers.
With its Intel 8th Gen Core i7-8550U, 256GB PCIe SSD and 8GB of RAM, the review configuration of the Envy 13t offered a range of performance, in benchmark tests and everyday use.
With its incorporated Intel UHD 620 GPU on-board, the Envy 13t cannot replace a gaming rig, but it can play videos and operate less-demanding titles.
The laptop lasted 9 hours and 46 minutes on the Laptop Battery Test, which includes continuous surfing over Wi-Fi.
The camera is good enough to use for Skype calls, but if you are podcasting or making a really essential call, you should invest in an external webcam.
The HP Envy 13t is a perfect choice for knowledge workers, students or anyone that just needs to get something done.
Experience peace of mind, no matter where your day takes you. Light, powerful, and with smart security features – the HP ENVY 13” Laptop is built to empower life on-the-go. With state-of-the-art security, an ultra-sleek design, and powerful entertainment features, your privacy and data stays secure – whether you’re at home or on-the-road.
