HP Envy Sleekbook hands on review
HP Envy Sleekbook hands-on - design and build
The Envy is available in two sizes – 14in and 15.6in. Underneath, it's finished in a rather fetching red, while on top both versions sport a sexy brushed-aluminium lid, which looks particularly good on the black model seen here. That finish continues onto the keyboard surround, framing the chiclet keyboard (which features optional backlighting) and a multitouch trackpad.
That trackpad features a spun finish that proved nearly impossible to capture on camera, but looks pretty cool in the flesh. We got our hands on the larger 15.6in Envy, which, at a quoted 1.81kg, is a little heftier than the 14in Envy's starting weight of 1.7kg. At 19.8mm thick, it's still reasonably svelte.
