Right, resolution moaners, tuck into this!


Pointlessly high resolution which reduces battery life.

Surely a 12 hour battery life is enough for most and is higher than most laptops

No usb-c but tempted.
I'd buy the heck out of this if it had a quad core 8th gen proc

Windows 10 horrid at scaling
I had the Skylake version of this sometime ago and i was not impressed with the screen.

It had that cross-hatching effect, similar (but much lesser) to the screen-door effect on VR headsets, drove me crazy.

Windows 10 OS is great at scaling. Many apps that haven’t been written for high dpi panels aren’t.

Amounts to the same thing though, I guess.
Cold! No usb-c and for £600+ I expect more than an i5 and 256GB HD.

You'll never get 12 hrs in the real world. Half it and you're close.
But it should get you through the day.

You haven't seen what Apple give you for this price then in a macbook air lol it's a good deal for the specs considering the compact dimensions and metal body
I never use this brand, how is it?
There are far better value propositions out there. The hardware will not have really enough oomph to drive the display resolution 'properly'

Should have a backlit keyboard at this price.

A few recommendations would be useful.
I just purchased (delivered today!) an HP Envy i7 with the dedicated graphics, 360GB SSD drive, 8GB RAM, backlit keyboard and a 1080p touchscreen (the newer version to this I guess for £899.00.

With the price difference, would this be the better option would you experts say? I realise I'd be going down from i7 to i5, losing out on the drive, backlit keyboard and the dedicated graphics (I would not be using it for games) but I would gain the screen resolution, HDMI and a saving of nearly £275!

it is to be used for business use (website design with Wordpress, general office use, presentations and internet browsing).

I really wanted a Surface Book - but the prices on those are shocking!

Pretty sure it does...
Does this come with a free keylogger?
Just goes to prove that regardless of spec and price you can't please everyone on here. Hot from me even though this doesn't come with Butler attachment or auto housekeeper optimiseation software

Processor is far superior as quad core. Has a separate GPU (although not amazing, far better than integrated solution), lower screen resolution but 1080p is more than adequate for a 14 inch screen
Total waste of money....

First of all it's last gen, I have not read the comments but I'm sure it's already been mentioned how much better 8th gen is

secondly unless you really need QHD it's a waste of time on this size

thirdly no USB C with PD

Fourthly I have the exact laptop but with a FHD screen (still i5-7200) and it's awful, firstly it's slow as hell, I now have an 8th Dell Inspiron 7 series which I paid less than this for which blows it out of the water. The build quality is shocking, the screen has shocking light bleed, the screen also got blemishes after only two weeks, it's get so hot the fan is constantly on and very loud, it also gets so hot the rubber feet that run the whole width of the laptop fell off after only a week as all the glue melted, but worst of all I lifted up the laptop by the screen and the hinge snapped, this has NEVER happened to me before, oh and the touchpad sticks constantly so bad I had to use a mouse. I will gladly take photo's for you if wanted.

Save you money, go to the Dell outlet and sign up for the 10% new customer discount and get a decent machine for less money. Ie the Dell 5379 or you could even get the 5378 which is the same spec as this but with FHD for about £400 with the 10% off.

It does have usb c


Not USB C with PD, it can only transfer data not charge

How is he trolling, he's right, this shouldn't be a penny more than £500... When you can get an 8th gen i5 machine for less money you'd be a fool to buy this.
I have the 8gb, i7, 512gb version of this. Battery backup is not more than 6 hours. But that is more than enough for me. Good laptop for its price.
Note this is also the pre-face lift envy. The new one is amazingly sleek and comparable to the Dell XPS 13
7200U is poor. Such a weak generation from Intel. If you can find a decent price on a laptop with an 8th gen i5 go for that. Massive step up. Depends what you are using it for of course, more than good enough for basic use.

Near vision is going now, so I can't actually use all those pixels. I'll just end up zooming the display which will make the high res point less. 1440x900 is about the sweet spot for me.
Pointless having such a high resulution on such a small screen!

Have you tried or do you own one of these? I have the previous incarnation and paid £650 odd. I think it had 6th generation processor - i5.

It drives the display fine. Using it for work and home for over 2 years and no issues at all.

Depends.

I bought the qhd+ version so that the pictures look crisp. On FHD I can see the pixel jaginness...! I have to downscale do FHD when I use it though!

Ideally would prefer a 14-15 inch with a good screen but at the time for this price range nine available. The Dell XPS is better but alot more expensive. I was going to go down apple route but the mac air had horrible screen and poor resolution and worst of all seemed like a TN panel...!

Did contemplate getting FHD with the increased battery life but I prefer the crispness of the qhd screen.

The refreshed Envy i7 (7th gen) that I've just purchased for £899 looks to be the better machine and apparently built better than this? Can anyone confirm as I haven't switched it on yet as could still send it back, save some money and go for this!

How would a 6th gen i7 Surface Book with 16GB RAM and performance base compare to a 7th gen i7 with 8GB RAM and the dedicated graphics (i.e. comparable to Microsoft's so called "performance" base)

Love the look of the Surface Book but was very impressed with the Envy when I took it out of it's box - it seems very solid and sleek.

Why would you spend £900 on a 7th Gen? You could get a refurb XPS 13 for less than that money....

The one the wife bought is this was this which is still on sale. Yes it wouldn't go mad as a hotukdeal but the wife loved how sleek it is and she isn't as savvy is me
To be honest I was looking at Dell XPS13s and still am for myself but was actually surprised by how nice the HP envy is.
Build quality is really nice, looks very smart, screen is very good even at HD. Specs are not great but it depends what you'll use it for and she won't be using it for gaming.
