At one time touch screen technology was limited to devices such as smartphones and tablets but those days are long gone as now laptops are starting to take advantage of this great technology. Today we are looking at the HP Envy W7E04UA#ABL which features touch screen on its 15.6 inch display which is a great alternative to have instead of a mouse and keyboard. Below we are going to check out this latest touch screen model and see what some of its biggest benefits and downsides are.
Processor: Intel Core i5
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 1 TB SATA
Screen: 15.6 Inches
OS: Windows 10
If you haven’t used touch screen on a laptop before it can be easy to dismiss it as just another fad but once you have actually used this technology for any amount of time it starts to become obvious just how big of a convenience this is. For most the natural feel of touch is a much more convenient way to navigate around a computer especially when doing quicker tasks like opening applications or browsing through media files and when it comes down to doing serious work the keyboard and touchpad are easily available.
The performance on the HP Envy W7E04UA#ABL isn’t going to blow you away but it can easily keep pace with most mid-range laptops on the market. It comes with an Intel Core i5 processor which is only a slight step down from the top of the line Intel Core i7 and while it may not be the most powerful option on the market still packs quite a punch while staying more affordable than its bigger sibling.
No matter what type of external connection you want or need for your device this laptop has you covered. USB 3.0, Typc-C, HDMI and Bluetooth are all included on this laptop.
One slight change that would have gave the HP Envy W7E04UA#ABL a nice boost in the performance department would have been the addition of an SSD hard drive. The SATA that is included is very spacious with its 1 TB capacity but lacks the same type of read and write times that an SSD can provide, and when paying this much for a laptop you want to get every bit of performance out of the device you can.
The HP Envy W7E04UA#ABL has just about everything you could wish for, great performance, super convenient touch screen technology and a light mobile friendly design. The price tag may scare away some but for those that have the budget this seems like a really good option.
