HP Envy 4-1030us

The HP Envy 4 is aptly named—this Ultrabook’s premium design and subtle pop of color should make it the envy of ultraportables everywhere. But don’t expect too much in graphics performance or gaming (the Envy 4 has no discrete graphics card). It features a flat, plateau-like brushed aluminum cover and a sexy red undercarriage. Plus, it’s a solid performer and has excellent speakers. The keyboard is attractive, but typing accurately can be hard. The touchpad supports multitouch gestures, which are fairly smooth. Other pluses are its good performance scores and excellent speakers. The Envy 4 also features built-in Wi-Fi and Blue­tooth 4.0.
