The HP Envy 14 (2021) is one of the best laptops that you can buy if you're looking for a sturdy 14-incher.

At 3.3 pounds and 12.3 x 8.8 x 0.7 inches, it's rather slim and lightweight.

Sentiment Score[*] 76%
Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
At 1.6 kg, the Envy 14 is slightly thicker and noticeably heavier than many of its 14-inch peers by at least 100 g. The system is slightly longer in length as well due in part to its squarer 16:10 aspect ratio instead of the usual 16:9. Keys are crisp and with stronger feedback than most other Ultrabooks, but clatter is slightly louder as a result.

  • Quiet fan noise when on battery power
  • Easy serviceability
Cons[**]
  • Lid and hinges could be stiffer

Sentiment Score[*] 71%
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The HP Envy 14 is an attractive aluminum wedge that scores high for features, ports, performance. At 3.3 pounds, it's a few ounces over our definition of an ultraportable. It's pricey, giving you an Intel Core i5 processor and a 256GB drive when the same money will buy a Core i7 and 512GB elsewhere.

Pros[**]
  • High-quality, factory-color-calibrated display
  • Good battery life
  • Solid performance
Cons[**]
  • Mediocre keyboard
  • Poor webcam privacy shutter

Sentiment Score[*] 79%
Reviewers from Pcworld have found the following[***]:
HP's Envy 14 lacks the visual splendor of the company's premium Spectre laptops. While you'll see the stylized diamond grillework that distinguishes HP's laptop vents, overall the Natural Silver stamped-aluminum chassis is a little plain. The Envy provides a button to mute the mic, too, something we wish more vendors would do.

Pros[**]
  • Stylish design
  • High-contrast display
  • Powerful discrete GPU
  • Supports HP Command Center and HP Enhanced Lighting
Cons[**]
  • Only one USB-C port
