The HP Envy Ultrabook – Fashion & Envy – Urban Jungle

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”

– Coco Chanel

And this time around HP has nailed it with their Envy Ultrabook, with new ideas, forward thinking, sleek design, keeping in mind what people want these days and making the laptop something that you will enjoy ‘living’ with rather than just ‘using’ for work! It truly is FASHION, done the right way.
I recently got my hands on the HP Envy Ultrabook 4-1002TX. And I have not stopped talking about it ever since!
Here is my experience with this amazing laptop (First Part). Ofcourse since mine in a Fashion & Lifestyle Blog you will see a huge inclination towards that aspect but I can promise you, by the time you’re done reading both my posts, you WILL want one!…Especially when you have a chance to win one!(Keep reading for more details)

The day I got the laptop I decided to take it out for a test drive! Just a walk down to my local coffee shop to get my daily dose of caffeine, get some prior pending work done, catch up with friends and maybe something more. Its a really short walk so I decided to leave my bag at home, just carry some cash and the laptop, without its bag OR adapter. I love stretching products to their limits!
Off I go…

Whoa! Wait a second! Thats it?!….Well yes…it IS! Just the laptop. AND BOY IS IT LIGHT! I mean SUPER-LIGHT! Its like a freakkin notebook! But ofcourse you can do so much more with this!! Just pick it up and you’re good to go. Nothing else needed!

The Ultrabook is so reflective of what today’s youth, or for that matter the entire population stands for – Value for Time. Everyone is always in a hurry, wants to do and get things faster with lesser hassle. This is exactly what the Ultrabook delivers…Super light, very easy to carry (even in your hands) since its so thin and an incredibly fast boot-up time! There is a slip-resistant base too! Mine is red. These small practical details show what an enormous effort HP has put into the Ultrabooks to make sure each feature is in line with the times! Not to forget the USB 3 port which transfers data from my external hardrive like a hot knife slips in butter!

The Envy Ultrabook is as thin as 19.8 mm(0.78 inches). While that sounds all good i’m sure it does’nt give you a very good idea in actuality. I’m sure THIS will though…

And THATS how light it is:

The reading showed 1.6 kgs on my personal weighing scale. The Laptop is actually lighter than the bag I carry everywhere, daily! I checked and the bag came out to be 1.8 kgs on the very same scale! I know its mentioned on the sites that the laptops can weigh anywhere from 1.7 kgs onwards so my scale maybe a little off but what we can be sure of is that its lighter than the average purse/bag that women carry with them everyday!

So thats what my experience with The HP Envy Ultrabook has been for now! Theres a whole new experience coming up in the next post. For now all I can say is – With The HP Envy Ultrabook I feel like I’m up for anything…in this Urban Jungle that we live in!

    Ultrabook – a new rendition of the erstwhile notebook. ULTRA meaning the superlative, the invincible and the ultimate which when collaborates with BOOK – regarded as man’s best friend, the lethal, uber cool and fashionista combination results in an Ultrabook.

    A mercurial innovation in the pursuit of the excellence. Ultrabooks serve the modern days vitality, sleekness, tender outside but a monster inside feel with its Mission Impossible battery life, Buggatti powered processor and Milan inspired outlook which aptly defines ‘Up for Anything’.

    Kudos to HP for making and branding a product which is surely making others feel ENVY of its gigantic and out of the box presence.

    Great Blog Akanksha. I must commend on the detailing you have put in it. I’ve been looking for a laptop for myself but honestly those boring & “Not-So-Happening” lappies just fail to impress me. And it’s ironical how I stumbled upon your blog pretty much at the right time. As you said, it’s bad enough I have to carry my huge handbag at work, now who wants to carry another piece of luggage. Damn you look really effortless holding it in those pictures, got me really excited to check it out.

    This is it! Slim, Sleek, Speedy, Stylish, Affordable, Portable Ultrabook! The edges make it easy to grip. What I like most is it has Intel’s Rapid Start Technology built in, takes only 8 seconds on startup from sleep mode to window’s desktop, with a Beats Audio-licensed product, the sound is amazing. Without that “hp” logo it’s just look alike a stick file. If you are having trouble caring your laptop then this is a blessing from HP to you. You have to carry only ENVY with you and nothing with it.

    I am in Love with this HP Envy Ultrabook because it is very light-weight, thin and sleek looking Ultrabook and it can easily fit into 15 inch clutch bag. It seems it is made keeping in mind my wrists as I cannot carry heavy weight stuff as my wrists starts to pain. This Ultrabook is certainly an Envy to touch screen tablets as this has battery that can lasts all day long, crystal clear display with awesome sound and excellent speed. As a fashion statement, I believe this would be one of my accessories which I would love to carry it apart from wearing anklets, bracelets, ear rings.

    Here comes another “seek the peek” performance from the World’s most innovative company. HP which for me stands for “Highly Portable”. This Laptop can be kept anywhere, from your “Lap” to your “Top”. Highly sleek, & underweight, this gem from HP comes as at a time when the market is craving with Customers and HP stands out with quality as well as quantity. 8 hours of standby is something which is a unique feature and cost-effective venture is why even middle class families will love to grab this amazing pocket size dynamite.

    Words like lovely, gorgeous and stylish do nothing to pronounce, without a shadow of a qualm HP ENVY ULTRABOOK is the coolest notebook computer ever. It’s that simple. This is the kind of artifact that just stops people in their trajectories when they see it. Pull HP ENVY ULTRABOOK out of your bag in any lounge and your fellow passengers will turn green with envy and unspeakably hide their own big and heavy notebooks. The points at which you interact with HP ENVY ULTRABOOK are paramount to a prolific relationship with the device, since every time if it left unattended in the show room, someone couldn’t help picking it up and fondling it.

    This Ultrabook really has an aggressive and sharp design design. Love the ‘too hot to handle’ image

    Fashion is Architecture : It is a matter of proportions. HP ENVY Ultrabook is the perfect blend of Fashion and Technology. Glamour cannot exist without personal social envy being a common and widespread emotion. The obvious self-satisfaction, believe me, is achieved in this Ultrabook only.

    Being a professional girl and a five footer carrying laptops has always been a tedious work and carrying that heavy laptop bag just pissed me as it was noway close to accessories a girl would love to carry , so buying a ultrabook was the solution , so bought HP ENVY ULTRABOOK my wisest purchase so far i think not only its ultra light but also its sleek and funky looks makes it an important accessories for me and envy of others and easily fits in my hand bag but i like to flaunt it in my hand and other features being HP brand which one can trust with close eyes makes me proud and feel like a celebrity of sorts …so all laptop owners feel envious of my possession 🙂 !!

    I feel technology is like a butterfly… dazzles everyone, but the more you pursue it, faster it flies.
    Technological advancements are happening by the minute and in the need for speed in this jet-age, fashion takes a backseat.

    HP Envy is the Holy Grail of Laptop Nirvana!

    The sacred union of technology and fashion entwined into One! I love the incredible lightness of its being, the razor-sharp silhouette, and the talk-of-the-town technical features.

    Finally there’s a laptop that melts the stresses of mind, body and gives you fashion freedom! HP Envy is a Laptop that truly makes your “Top” light!

    Such an awesome piece of technology to hold such a slim and light weight machine and with nice bold background!
    HP ENVY Ultrabook is the perfect blend of looks and Technology.
    Being a professional definitely need a light weight Ultrabook
    HP brand which one can trust. On the other hand I feel like Technology changeing every day and geting obsolete everyday no-no changeing every secound, once you bought it and other secound it gets obsolete……I bought a HP Pavilion from DV series and now seeing “HP Ultrabook” it feels like Dv series laptop are out dated.

    The Envy series laptop from HP seriously packs a punch with its small size and stunning looks
    I fell in love right from the moment i saw it first.
    Size is the essence and it is so light weight that it feels no more than carrying a couple of books around in my hand.
    If i am getting a full fledged laptop with breath-taking looks and a full-fledged Windows OS then i am ready to ditch my Tablet any day for this better piece of amazing technology.

    “If loving fashion is a crime, we plead guilty.” I really liked your post, on the HP Envy, especially as it did not just talk about 10 hrs. battery life, Intel core processor, but rather talks about some other things that do matter. Weight is mega-important and we understand how important it is not to have to lug around a 2 ton monster, and not having to carry the charger and look for power points is a huge bonus. And by God, does it look good which did make me envy the snap where you carry it to your café.

    P.S. Pity about the 100 word limit or I could have gone on…

    As an Engineer & a fashion enthusiast, I feel compelled to express my feelings. Beauty is skin deep they say. A package of outstanding performance and exceptionally designed looks packed in a superlight chassis – this will perfectly define the new ultrabook from HP. & Wow she’s size zero too ! This seems really a workaholic mean machine who likes to travel alot :p Cheers to HP for crafting some Chunky Heart in Chicky looks.

    Gaily o Gaily my eyes frisked across, it was different and I was momentarily paused.
    HP Envy Ultrabook was the name embossed, glint with shine and simplicity was distinction it had got.
    Mesmerizing gestures came across and within seconds “Technical Specifications” were searched for.
    “Powered by Intel, 8 hours battery with 14 inch display” played their part and my heart was throbbed at par.
    Within seconds my mettle got ceased and my mind started framing some peaceful feed.
    Constructively some words I could heed were “Up for anything is the best deal”.

    For Style it’s got Curves,
    For Appeal it’s got firmness,
    For genteel it’s got finish,
    For effectual it’s got Beats ®,
    For Youth it’s got technology,
    For perception it’s got in perspicacious,
    For me it’s HP Envy 😉

    The Hp Envy Ultrabook has a sleek, funky, modern design on the outside but at its heart is a sturdy, powerful machine which has a host of user-friendly features. Being an Architect, I understand that designing a light-weight notebook which performs immaculately must have posed a number of challenges for the designers at HP; one of the toughest things to do is to combine tradition and usability with modernity. But with savvy design and lightweight materials, it flawlessly merges two starkly different spectrums of the design environment, so similar to my work! HP Ultrabook = Great Design = Me!
