The touchpad offers multitouch all features (zoom / de-zoom with two fingers and scroll to 2, 3 and 4 fingers) and a pretty good glide. Unfortunately, the coating is the same as the 14-inch model. It retains fingerprints and hangs when the pressure is too strong.
Small disappointment on the keyboard if it still fits as well in the chassis, HP has used exactly the same keyboard as the HP probook 4520s battery Envy 4. We therefore have an unused over 3 cm on each side band. This gave way to a keypad.
As on many HP 625 battery notebooks, shortcuts (volume control, brightness of the screen and keyboard ...) do not require that you press the fn key to be used. In contrast, the F1, F2 require pressure combined with the function key.
Connectivity, the HP Probook 4320s battery Envy 6 provides the means to meet current needs with 3 USB 3.0 ports, HDMI output, an SD card reader, an RJ45 port, a headphone jack and a microphone jack. Good news, contrary to what is found on other ultrabooks, here, all the connectors are standard, but optional adapters.
The Envy 6 makes very little noise. Even when components are stress, the fan is quiet. However, the rise in temperature seems to suffer. Despite the single processor Core i3 low consumption, it rises in places to nearly 50 ° C. It is not dangerous to the health of components, but it can be quite unpleasant for the knees.
Received test configuration includes an Intel Core i3-2367M processor, 4GB of memory, Intel HD 3000 graphics chipset, and a 128 GB SSD Unlike the rest of the test, which is valid for all Envy 6 (see box below cons), only the variation tested here is concerned with our comments on the performance and HP 620 battery life.
Little surprise side computing power. Equipped with an Intel Core i3-2367M processor and 4GB of RAM, the Envy 6 walks in office and internet browsing and keeps a little room for a little heavier as the video encoding tasks. While not the fastest in its class, it will be perfectly at home in common use. It should not, however, count on him when you need power at all costs.
With 2.5 kg and autonomy (video playback, screen 100 cd / m², Wi-Fi off and headphones plugged) of 5:07, the HP BQ350AA Envy 6 is a public interest in the search for a mobile machine. However, it is important to remember that if it is less than 2 cm thick, its other measurements (width 374 mm and length 252.8 mm) rank near the 15.6-inch "common". Slip into a backpack is not always easy.
