The HP Envy Ultrabook – Fashion & Envy – Urban Jungle
“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
– Coco Chanel
And this time around HP has nailed it with their Envy Ultrabook, with new ideas, forward thinking, sleek design, keeping in mind what people want these days and making the laptop something that you will enjoy ‘living’ with rather than just ‘using’ for work! It truly is FASHION, done the right way.
I recently got my hands on the HP Envy Ultrabook 4-1002TX. And I have not stopped talking about it ever since!
Here is my experience with this amazing laptop (First Part). Ofcourse since mine in a Fashion & Lifestyle Blog you will see a huge inclination towards that aspect but I can promise you, by the time you’re done reading both my posts, you WILL want one!…Especially when you have a chance to win one!(Keep reading for more details)
The day I got the laptop I decided to take it out for a test drive! Just a walk down to my local coffee shop to get my daily dose of caffeine, get some prior pending work done, catch up with friends and maybe something more. Its a really short walk so I decided to leave my bag at home, just carry some cash and the laptop, without its bag OR adapter. I love stretching products to their limits!
Off I go…
Whoa! Wait a second! Thats it?!….Well yes…it IS! Just the laptop. AND BOY IS IT LIGHT! I mean SUPER-LIGHT! Its like a freakkin notebook! But ofcourse you can do so much more with this!! Just pick it up and you’re good to go. Nothing else needed!
The Ultrabook is so reflective of what today’s youth, or for that matter the entire population stands for – Value for Time. Everyone is always in a hurry, wants to do and get things faster with lesser hassle. This is exactly what the Ultrabook delivers…Super light, very easy to carry (even in your hands) since its so thin and an incredibly fast boot-up time! There is a slip-resistant base too! Mine is red. These small practical details show what an enormous effort HP has put into the Ultrabooks to make sure each feature is in line with the times! Not to forget the USB 3 port which transfers data from my external hardrive like a hot knife slips in butter!
The Envy Ultrabook is as thin as 19.8 mm(0.78 inches). While that sounds all good i’m sure it does’nt give you a very good idea in actuality. I’m sure THIS will though…
And THATS how light it is:
The reading showed 1.6 kgs on my personal weighing scale. The Laptop is actually lighter than the bag I carry everywhere, daily! I checked and the bag came out to be 1.8 kgs on the very same scale! I know its mentioned on the sites that the laptops can weigh anywhere from 1.7 kgs onwards so my scale maybe a little off but what we can be sure of is that its lighter than the average purse/bag that women carry with them everyday!
So thats what my experience with The HP Envy Ultrabook has been for now! Theres a whole new experience coming up in the next post. For now all I can say is – With The HP Envy Ultrabook I feel like I’m up for anything…in this Urban Jungle that we live in!
Let me know what you think!

First all, beautiful photography Akansha, the envy book looks like such a sexy beast of a notebook. I travel a decent amount & am an avid blogger, so I need gadgets that are sleek & light WITHOUT compromising on quality- I’m upgrading my camera for the very same reason. I would love to win one of these because it will be a win-win situation in my opinion. I will get a sleek & capable HP envy ultrabook & the envybook too will lead a pretty adventurous life as it will get to go everywhere with me. 🙂
Whoever said the urban jungle was all about concrete, uninspiring landscapes should check out the HP Envy Ultrabook. It shows that within the confines of the urban exists a truly exuberant subculture waiting to explode with a fervent intensity! Like the urban dweller it’s personality works within a framework, but not afraid to explore and extend the boundaries of creativity, reach and expression.
Here’s hoping I get to win this uber cool Ultrabook. Windows 7 must be droolworthy on this mean HP machine.
Loved the approach of taking the laptop out without wires/adapters – helps get a view on the sturdiness as well as the long battery life offered by the ultrabook. Also the comparison with a average size ladies bag in terms of weight is a superb way of demonstration the portability. Looking forwards to the second part of the review – hoping you would cover up how it performs under different usage scenario
OMG.. Its so freaking sleek and the way you are carrying it on streets, held lightly in your hands- I am envious. This is the stuff for me- chic, classy, ultra-light and oh-so-hot!
I love the term – Urban Jungle. I don’t understand how it is ever portrayed in negative light. Urban = Civilized, developed, highly evolved, planned, advanced. But then, you also have ‘Jungle’. The unexplored. The wild. The adventurous. The Loud & Rowdy. It is such a beautiful oxymoron. Just like this machine. Urban in the sense that it’s the best in line, technologically, ecologically, fashionably, and subsequently even socially. And, it’s ‘Jungly’. Unexplored. You can make what you want of it. And with BEATS AUDIO, it’s loud as well. The perfect combination of opportunities for the youth, today. What a beauty.
Hey .. This is so coool. I was looking for this laptop a few days back. i love the finish of the cover.. very very chic. I have to buy a new one… let me know where to find this one. Of corse its fashionable… and looks hot… i hope even the configuration is nice too for graphic needs. BTW. nice pictures as always… looking for more blogs to come….
I want i want i want i want i want…..stop making me greedy for stuff akanksha….n i just bought a HP laptop…such regrets……u guys hv to exchange dat for this one…hehe….
It’s ultra-light, ultra-thin and compact. I am charmed by its elegance, style, smartness and design. It will be a great companion when I am on the move. It is a pure blend of design and technology. It’s quick, smart and responsive. It’s time to explore the urban wilderness with it in pursuit of my inspiration, passion and dream that translates my thoughts into reality. And my desire is to have it.
Ah! Just noticed that I need to give my email id as well…
Was it the laptop that I was looking at?
Was the attraction because of colourfully painted walls?
Was it the refreshingly different text that fascinated?
Was it your smile that won my attention?
Was it all of them rolled-in together like a delicious kathi-roll?
Well, if this were to be an MCQ test, I would’ve chosen the last choice! This isn’t just a review, it is a work of art!
The review pointed out all the right things that anyone about to make a buying decision would want to read and see. The best thing was that it was a change from the drab utterly-techy reviews that one comes across so often these days. Anyway, what most people want is a review that will win their heart! This one did.
Our relationship began 3yrs ago. My laptop easily runs sofwares on highest possible settings, much faster than a slug. Difficult to operate – kept parents away from my private affairs. Crashes only when I insert a DVD. It produces enough heat to keep me warm in Delhi’s cruel winters. I cook my dinner by the time it opens Illustrator. Unfortunately the darling toy rests unattended in an over-sized tote, after a motherboard failure. Our relationship ended on a sour note. Its time to start afresh with this pretty gadget from HP!
This post is really helpful! I mean, for a working woman the weight of the laptop is THE BIGGEST ISSUE.. well, apart from its configuration.. since it definitely means lugging around your laptop in an ugly backpack if you want to save your shoulders… And being an architect, I’m not particularly a mac fan considering the need to juggle multiple softwares at once, some not really supported by macs. I was looking for a laptop which is great to work with AND which is light – and this post just nailed it! HP Envy Ultrabook with good config., weight and looks to match is not only good to work with, but also good to been seen with! 🙂
The pictures here are like a poet’s imagination speaking aloud… without turning into a cacophony! The pictures tell you a lot about what you seek in an Ultrabook and they gently lead you to fall in love with it. It is my fluttering heart that is writing these words for the lovely HP Envy:
Go, go and win more hearts like mine
For, you are like an uncorked wine
No wonder then that pictures speak
And leave the other laptops weak!
The words that tell me who you are
Or what you do, with whom you spar
Are words that simply tell the facts –
The Theme, the Scenes, and all the Acts!
And I am truly impressed now
So with these words I take my bow!

ultimate photography i must say akansha but ya the specifications u gave are never expected out of a girl as a valid girl alwaz go on looks whether its laptop or anything else but ya its unique sleekness makes it a compulsory need for me as i travel alot due to my college n home in different cities would actualy love to own this fashion statement
i think fashion is an art ,” art of decorate” how to decorate your self and display your self . that’s not a matter what to use and how much or less not a require any quality theory only main aim is decorate all angel’s Likeness
At Rs. 57, 990, the new HP Ultrabooks are a steal!!
Super-powered with upto 8 hours of battery life, the HP Envy 4 Ultrabooks gives you a complete user experience packed with uncompromised performance and entertainment and a distinctive design.:)
you know how guys always think girls are not savvy enough to know what a good laptop is?
well , you have just proven them wrong.
i esp love the fact that its light weighted.
its tedious for me when i have to carry a huge laptop plus omg its so heavy!! but this laptop from hp will make my life so much easier.
and i love the color combination too (being a beauty cum fashion blogger) black with popping red or fucshia….(wow!its definitely every fashionistas must have laptop!)
And theres just no comparison when it comes to the battery 8 hours!!! the most i can go upto with my old laptop is 1 hour.
so i hope i win this laptop …
The world of ‘HP’ is one the best things I could imagine. The HP Envy Ultrabook with power packed performance will increase my adrenaline to surmount new challenges and make technology come alive at my fingertips. I will make HP Envy Ultrabook the best Tech Mate to increase my ‘Technology Quotient’.
Personally, the laptop suits me a lot more than a laptop,as it is unique in it’s approach to style, ruggedness and use.Moreover, I have to spend hours with a laptop given that my course requires me to do so and also-my old one one is practically dying, I would really like to win this perfect laptop!!

When I heard the ultrabook is being launched THIS summer, saying, the world swirled around me would be a Huge understatement.
JUST IN TIME for college Ultrabook has saved me hours of surfing the and net, reading mindboggling specifications and then Googling the same, only to come around being more confused then before!
Three simple things which just have to be in a laptop for me are:
Manageable ( I do not want to go around carrying the Huge laptop bags “Like a boss.”)
So for me Ultrabook is the IT laptop for college.
Great job with the shoot Akansha <3
Have you heard the latest?
That thing is just what I need ;
I must have the greatest ;
I need 10 times the speed ;
What I have is old tech ;
How have I lasted so long ;
I’m going crazy; I’m a wreck ;
Save me ” MY HP “.
supercalifragilisticexpialidocious – Y need 100 words when can be explained in just one 🙂 😛
Ahhh….finally something minimalistic…
Was once a fan of HP….before they started pouring out bulky and underpowered notebooks…that pushed me to viao/mac
Seems they are back into the action and most certainly seems(from your experience) this little beauty will bring back that old glory i miss so dearly(God I remember the laptops I had to use,2.8kgs???really???).
Good lord that this baby weighs so little.
Well won’t now till I get my hands on one of these though 🙂
stylish, royal, lightweight, fun to hang out with, omg its not 5in1 or 6in1 its all in one..
Firstly I have 2 words for this baby-“completes me”.
Owning her would be as good as fathering a baby.I would need to take all round care of it,which of course I would do coz of she being my 2nd <3,the first being my gf.Thus my baby would become my <3 and gf's envy :P..But I would get both of them together easily,as it would complete my better half too.
Computer as such was one of the wonders of 20th century.The first computer was almost the size of a house.Its got smaller and smaller and now it has reached upto the thin and lean ultrabooks.Who knows tomorrow it may become more smaller and we will find it difficult to find it.I am happy that you like it.Anyone who has something in upstairs will surely like it.I am also a college student.I don’t have a laptop,I can get satisfied with any laptop but ultrabook is also a symbol of style and fashion.I am not so lean I am a fatty.I can’t become so I can have atleast a lean laptop.With tech I can shine just like HP is shining among other companies.
Last one more thing ,like a poet once told hp envy is a wonder and I surely want to win it
We’re locked up in ideas,
We like to label everything,
You say, “What’s your style?”
But who cares?
I’ll be your dream, fantasy, hope, wish, love,
I’m strong, faithfull, Superlight,
I like to be everything that you need,
‘Cos I’m counting on a new beginning.
I’m Envy -” make it better”
When technology meets class.
The all new HP Envy Ultrabook(or should I call it sleekbook?) has left me starry eyed since it’s advertisement days and seeing it up-close here, has very much confirmed that it’s not just hogging all the lime-light for nothing.
It’s fast. It’s lightweight. It’s fashionable.
Best of three worlds in one laptop.
Who needs accessories? Complete your trendy up-to-the-minute look with this swanky chic-looking recent member of the HP family.
Choose stlyle. Choose ENVY.

Is this a Tray or something..?? The Pic certainly would convey the meaning that it is a tray for anyone who would look at it suddenly…
The name occupies the Priority here as it is from the stable of HP. With World’s Most Powerful Brand Name backed by Powerful Processor from World’s Powerful Processor Intel i5,one cannot except anything more at this point of juncture…
It’s a Fashion Statement. It makes anyone ENVY..I am not an exception!!!
Well, let me say that this definitely sprouts the fashionista in me in the very first glance. Drooling , I was left, when I saw the sleek and swanky HP Envy Ultrabook. Being an engineering student (and someone who’s about to appear in civil services exam) , this scion of the HP Family is at the epitome of my must-have list . Its endurance and lightweight attributes, along with its ever-so classic body textures , have got me enthralled and it would provide a bit of slack to my taut preparation schedule by having an on-the-go gear for all my educational needs.
To me, the HP Envy Ultrabook symbolizes a perfect medley , where both the universes , of fashion and technology , seem to conjunct coherently.
Being in the advertisement industry requires one to work around endless research job, documentation and presentations. My job requires me to be on –the- go and come up with quick creative presentations . Anyone with that kind of job profile would definitely expect 3 most important P’S to be present in their lappy- POWER, PERFORMANCE & PORTABILITY
1.The long lasting battery life(uptill 8 hrs) doesn’t disrupts your work and
2. The HP processor’s ATI Radeon 7670M discrete graphics boasts enhanced graphics processing capabilities with the crystal clear audio being an icing on the cake.
3. Its a much more portable option as not only does it weigh less but given its size and design it also easily slips into any bag making travelling sound easier & convenient .
Whoever said style and comfort cannot go hand-in–hand think twice. For here’s a lappy that makes u shine in style but without compromising on significant technological aspects. All in all “OWNER’S PRIDE AND NEIGHBOUR’S ENVY or atleast in this case should i say OWNER’S ENVY AND NEIGHBOUR’S SIGH “ 😉 Hope to be its proud owner 🙂
Since then i saw the HP Envy’s ad it made me to adore it like anything! it was so stylish, light weighted, with *beats audio*… So by which there is not just one ‘wow’ factor in it but many i would say .Its top style, excellent performance with a wider screen for sure make others around the one that possess it to envy as it says in it name itself!
So Get HP Envy- make others around you to envy you by holding the HP Envy in your hands so effortlessly 😉
HP revealed Beauty of heavens to its users so as to me , beauty gadget, Beauty divine, Beauty supreme.This lofty truth will remain unchallenged for many years i guess…this piece of perfectly designed and assembled has changed my perception towards laptops.
HP Envy ultrabook looks elegant and extremely user friendly! Currently am doing an internship and carrying an HP envy ultrabook in my hand (it looks light weight and easy to carry!) or in a satchel to work will look chic and stand out!
Cant wait to get my hands on it!
Envy maybe a green-eyed monster but the Hewlett-Packard(HP) version of it seems to be a sleek,doe-eyed,international beauty.
Here’s the answer to all my prayers. The search for MY OWN super-stylish, high performing laptop ends now. Being an IT professional & not having my mean machine with me was like a thorn in my side. My days of yearning will be over now as I have set my sights on this Intel powered, sleek & trendy, amazingly light laptop. The ultra speed & long battery life, combined with the robust tech-specs, amazing BEATS audio & the comfortable keyboard, hopefully shall make me the object of ENVY as its proud owner. Living in hope to use the to-die-for Ultrabook.
this is the best ultrabook out there .it diffrentiates itself from others by killer looks with red accents, beautiful metal finish and slim design as well as killer features -beats audio ,2gb radeon card (every gamer’s dream ) and packs latest intel tech.
this ll be an amazing replacement to my hp dv6 ,its so portable ,thin,a longstanding battery ,great performance beats audio.
i bet even models would get a complex posing with this
OMG this is so thin ;).
the name is so true- envy for all non owners : get one 🙂

How do I know what envy is?
Must I in eyes go peering on?
To find the greatest envy don?
Or test the envy of the words
As they are read or heard when born?
I know that envy will be there
Where style and fashion stand to dare
The tedious and the dreary ones
Who would then wake up to compare!
How do I know what envy is?
You have the looks and the senses
And you are always by my side
Just read this truth in my verses!
The HP Envy has the specs and the wow… and is poised to rule the world. The choices for people are to loiter in the world of envy or go ahead and get envy itself. Only then can they really be eligible to read my poem aloud!
Loved the post! Fell in love with this HP masterpiece!!
