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.

  • Design

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.

  • Ports

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.

  • Display

The 1080p, 13.3-inch touch screen on the Envy 13t provides decent image quality.

HP's Envy 13t reviews

  • Audio

The audio output is perfect enough for listening to dialog in movies or Skyping.

  • Keyboard

The keyboard of HP Envy 13t is so good that it alone makes this laptop a convincing option for students or productivity workers.

  • Performance

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.

  • Graphics

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.

  • Battery Life

The laptop lasted 9 hours and 46 minutes on the Laptop Battery Test, which includes continuous surfing over Wi-Fi.

  • Webcam

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.
