Summary

The Envy 15 is HP's first consumer laptop that pulls everything together into a truly competitive package.

The Envy 15 is HP's first consumer laptop that pulls everything together into a truly competitive package. It's HP's shot across the bows of laptops like the XPS 15 and 17 that also aim at creative professionals. HP's keyboard that has made its way from the Spectre to the Envy lineup is my second favorite.

Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
HP has reinvented its Envy 15 series from the more serviceability, and Core H-series options. The system is slightly thicker and heavier than the MacBook Pro 15. The F12 key doubles as a hotkey for HP Command Center. The Precision glass clickpad is similar in size to the on the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 15.

The HP Envy 15 (2020) is HP's latest portable workstation for the creative professional market. It's not going to beat out the best gaming laptops, but for all but the most die-hard laptop PC gamers out there, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. The base model retails for $1,149 (about £875/AU$2,250) and comes with a GeForce GTX 1650 Ti, a 15.6-inch 1080p display, 16GB RAM, and 256GB PCIe SSD storage. The configuration that HP sent to TechRadar for review retailed for $ 1,499 ( about £1,140/AU $2,100) and includes the 4K OLED display.

The HP Envy 15 has an Intel Core i7 CPU and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q. The Envy looks nicer than ever (even a bit like the more expensive HP Spectre line) At 4.7 pounds and 14.1 x 9.3 x 0.7 inches, it is a bit heavier than others.
