The LED screen has a glossy display and a resolution of 1366 pixels by 768. It is framed with black plastic finish glossy which swears a bit with the aesthetic quality of the product.

A modest configuration

Weight of HP Envy 4 ultrabook is also very light (1.8 kg, however), this ultrabook an Intel Core i3-2367M dual core (1.5 GHz) and 4GB of memory. HP does not call for the latest generation of Intel dated (Ivy Bridge), presumably for cost reasons. In addition, HP also preferred to rely on a traditional hard drive instead of SSD that typically found in ultrabooks. Thus, it is a 500GB model that hosts Windows and your data. It still enjoys the support of a small module mSATA 32 GB for faster start-up of the machine and exchange data.

As for the graphics, they are provided by the internal controller of the processor, the Intel HD 3000.
