Dell XPS M15z 2. Battery life Quite average, really. In our standard battery test, which involves playing a movie on repeat with WiFi on and the brightness fixed at 65 percent, the Envy 14's eight-cell lasted three hours and 55 minutes. That's squarely mediocre when you consider the inch VAIO S series lasted a near-identical three hours and 59 minutes with its integrated graphics card enabled, while the Dell XPS 15z made it three hours and 41 minutes with Optimus turned off.

The one major exception we've seen lately in this category is the Acer Aspire TimelineX AST, a inch laptop that squeezed out almost six and a half hours of juice. The point is, the Envy 14 should be fine for working on your couch for a few hours, but remember the charger if you're planning on staying out of the house all day. Software Now, as with the last generation HP Envy 14-1000 CTO Notebook AMDIntel VGA Envys, you're going to stumble across more pre-installed software than perhaps you're used to seeing on consumer laptops and that's saying a lot. To be fair, though, HP's utilities interrupted us less than they have on past systems we've tested, though we still had to postpone a reboot of the computer and shoo away a pop-up dialog box in the system tray more than once.

If you're so inclined, you can step up to a 2. Some things, such as the eight-cell battery and backlit keyboard come standard. However, US customers, at least, are locked into the glossy x display and Radeon HD graphics card we told you about. Blu-ray still isn't an HP Envy 14-1000 CTO Notebook AMDIntel VGA either you'll have to step up to the 7. And yeah, we know, Apple has made it crystal clear it won't be adding Blu-ray drives, but we still have hope for Windows machines.

After all, when HP Envy 14-1000 CTO Notebook AMDIntel VGA see systems like Sony's inch VAIO S, it's easy to cling to this expectation that if you're paying enough money for a Windows machine one with a not-that-small inch screen, at thatyou can opt for Blu-ray if you darn well please. The competition To keep things simple, if you're considering the Envy 14, we're going to assume you're in the market for something in the to inch range -- preferably something with a built-in optical drive. If you're willing to forfeit that, you could easily find something thinner and lighter. Not just the MacBook Air an obvious choice in that categorybut any of the emerging Ultrabooks about to hit the market.

So let's say you do want that optical drive. You're probably also considering the MacBook Pro -- a machine that looks like this, sure, but is also trying to lure the same performance-minded user. The real problem is that price. For the money we're talking about the inch version hereyou get a 2.


The difference in price should give you pause, and we suggest you think hard about how much you need that quad-core CPU for whatever it is you'll be doing. We'd also suggest considering the MBP's rated seven-hour battery life, and how much that kind of performance-longevity combo floats your boat.

We're just saying, depending on your routine, the Envy 14's base specs could be enough, and for all we know, the battery life will be acceptable, too. And you know what?

Even for those of you dead-set on Macs, we'll say yet again: Stepping back into the world of Windows, there are more premium and inchers to choose from than you can shake a stick at. All things considered, you'll get comparable battery life, too, though we can't speak for the difference in performance since the machines we tested weren't well matched in price or specs. And, finally, both look like Macs in their way, except the Envy 14 reminds us of he current model, while the 15z takes after a years-old MacBook Pro or HP Envy 14-1000 CTO Notebook AMDIntel VGA PowerBook.

Even at that starting price, you get a quad-core 2. A promising option for people who couldn't care less about forfeiting the Envy 14's engraved aluminum. The big draw here, as we said, is the battery life. Although its six-cell would appear to pale against the Envy 14's eight-cell, it lasted two and a half hours longer in the same rundown test, and steamrolled pretty much every other and incher we've handled recently.

In HP Envy 14-1000 CTO Notebook AMDIntel VGA, we'd recommend this for the battery life or that aggressive price. For design panache and overall performance, the Envy 14 still wins. If you wait until next month, you'll also have Sony's inch S series to think about. It's not without merits, but its price might be a tough pill to swallow when the Envy 14 and XPS 15z offer similar specs for hundreds of dollars less and -- in the case of the Envy, at least -- are arguably better-looking.

Wrap-up It's been thirteen months since we first reviewed the Envy 14 and HP Envy 14-1000 CTO Notebook AMDIntel VGA that's dog years in the gadget world, we're still pretty pleased with the thing, though we'd be exaggerating at this point if we said we were smitten. The performance remains more than adequate for everyday use and while the battery life isn't anything to write home about, it at least keeps pace with the competition. This time around, too, the trackpad is actually usable, even though it's not without its quirks.
