Reviews of an Android sound dock and a cheap ultrabook -
HP Envy 4 (Price: Rs 41,990)
Ultrabooks need to be cheaper to become mainstream. Realising this, HP has introduced the 'sleekbooks'. And this has meant cutting some corners.
The HP Envy 4 Sleekbook has a 14-inch screen and stunning looks. But despite the wide frame, this one maintains its body at 19.8 mm thickness with a weight of 1.75 kg. The HD Brightview display at 1366x768p could have been better.
The Envy 4 we tested had an Intel Core i3-2367M processor and not a third generation chip. The benchmark test results were also not all that great. But that will do for regular users, certainly at this price. Plus, they are getting inbuilt Beats Audio and decent battery life. This is an ultrabook for those on a low budget
PLUS: Price, Design, sound
MINUS: Older processor, Stubborn trackpad
