Pursuing the touch-sensitive Windows 8 subject, yours truly are excited to review another upcoming offering – the HP Envy TouchSmart Ultrabook 4. So, here’s our today’s story:
You will not notice many differences in the overall look of the new Envy TouchSmart Ultrabook 4 sompared to the existing Envy family’s machines: it features similar industrial metal design. Like other upcoming Windows-8-based platforms, it sports a 14-inch capacitive multi-touch HD display with the resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels, which adds a little heft to it – the Envy TouchSmart comes in at 4.77 pounds and measures 23 mm thick. However, HP positions its new ultrabook as a mid-range machine, so a bit bulky weight and a mediocre resolution make sense.
The HP Envy TouchSmart Ultrabook 4 will go on sale with a backlit black matte island-style keyboard, being perfectly in line with the overall design concept. The Beats Audio software with a Triple Bass Reflex Subwoofer on board provide excellent audio quality and make this unremarkable on the outside laptop a real catch for music lovers.
To make ENVY TouchSmart Ultrabook 4 a strong competitor on the fast-moving market of technology-intensive devices, HP packs it with powerful Ivy Bridge processors, speedy solid-state drives and an optional AMD graphics chip with 2 GB of dedicated memory. The manufacturer promises its TouchSmart 4 series will last for up to long 8 hours on a single battery charge, which is an impressive longevity indeed, especially for those who are constantly on the go.
HP’s innovative CoolSense technology on the upcoming ENVY TouchSmart Ultrabook 4 will detect the location of the machine and automatically adjust the cooling settings. Another outstanding feature that speaks in favor of this touch-enabled 4 lineup, is the HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection software. It provides protection for the hard drive if the system is accidentally dropped, or abruptly impacted by another object. And that’s not the whole story: you will find many other innovative HP-branded technologies that make this ultraportable unique and help it deliver enjoyable computing experience.
In terms of prices and availability in the USA, HP fans will be able to buy the new TouchSmart Ultrabook 4 series closer to the end of the year. Currently, there is no information on how much they will have to spend, however, ultrabooksreview.com will go hard to be the first to provide most detailed reviews and specifications including best prices and buying options for their valuable customers’ convenience.
