HP Envy 14-1110nr 14.5-Inch Review

The HP Envy 14-1110nr Laptop is slick and sleek, medium weight, and comes in an absolutely classy packaging. A startup guide is offered electronically, on a 2 gb memory card. HP Envy 14-1110nr Laptop contains the manual in various languages, and an installable that I didn’t experiment with.

HP Envy 14-1110nr Display is eyepleasing. The ‘beats’ audio is supposed to be one of the selling / differentiating points of this laptop. HP Envy 14-1110nr Laptop comes switched on by default, but there was no difference that I could see. I have heard as good sound on my Compaq Presario laptop with Altec Lansing speakers and this 5 years ago. Dr Dre makes good music, but he doesn’t necessarily make better speakers.

HP Envy 14-1110nr Laptop As with any computer with this much RAM and processing power, it’s fast.

The HP Envy 14-1110nr keyboard is well spaced out, and has a handy ‘eject’ button for the cd drive. The ‘FN’ key didn’t work out of the box for me, the manual indicates that it may need to be activated via bios. I could use [ctrl]+[alt] instead to access the function keys activated features such as keyboard backlight / mute / sound / brightness. The keyboard is too smooth, my fingers are slipping off it right now. My business laptop is a HP ProBook 4410s with a similar ‘chiclet’ keyboard but it doesn’t have such polished keys. I guess it will take some time to get used to the ‘slipperiness’ of the keys.

The HP Envy 14-1110nr Laptop doesn’t have a VGA port, only HDMI, I guess that’s the way of the future, and till such time as HDMI becomes universal for all projectors, we’ll have to use convertors. This may be a big issue for you though, it isn’t for me.

HP has included very little “bloatware”. The default music player is a HP software, not Windows Media Player. I don’t play much music, so I don’t particularly care. Microsoft Security Essentials provides the antivirus protection. Have to wait and see how good it is. There’s a “skinning” tool that applied a nice custom skin that goes well with the HP Envy 14-1110nr Laptop.

The HP Envy 14-1110nr Laptop only sees the ‘N’ portion of my dual band router’s network, so that bears some investigation. Not a bad thing by itself, helps in routing traffic.
