HP Envy 15t W0Q65AV_1 / ver. 2016 15.6″ Premium Laptop (Optional Touch, Intel Core CPUs)


The HP Envy 15t (W0Q65AV_1 / ver. 2016) is a multimedia-oriented Windows 10 laptop with premium-class features. The Envy 15t packs a high-end 15.6-inch display with IPS wide viewing angles, Full HD or Ultra HD 4K resolution, optional touchscreen, a backlit keyboard, and excellent internal components, all packed in an 0.7″ slim all-aluminum chassis. The laptop is quite light too with its starting weight of 4.4 pounds.

The HP Envy 15t W0Q65AV_1 which is sold directly by Hewlett-Packard is available only with the upper-mid-range 7th Generation Intel Core i7-7500U dual-core processor, although you can find the same laptop with the somewhat slower Core i5-7200U. The 7th Gen Core chips include the Intel HD 620 integrated graphics. Absence of a dedicated video card makes the laptop clearly a multimedia and home & home office machine, instead of multimedia/gaming. So, the laptop is aimed at tasks such as web browsing, movie watching, and casual low-end gaming, but it can also serve well for some advanced tasks like multimedia creation. Flawless multitasking is ensured with the offered 8GB, 12GB, and 16GB DDR4 system memory options. As for storage, selection is quite robust. As the basic choice, you can order the HP Envy 15t W0Q65AV_1 with a 1-Terabyte hard drive only. The same drive can be combined with a 128GB or 256GB solid state drive for a balance between storage space and performance. Or you can get the Envy 15t with pure SSD storage for ultimate speed. Available SSD capacities are 256GB and 512GB. A DVD optical drive has been omitted.

Furthermore, the Envy 15t W0Q65AV_1 includes Bang & Olufsen stereo speakers, a 720p HD web camera with optional IR tech for facial-recognition (Windows Hello), 802.11AC Wi-Fi wireless, Ethernet LAN, Bluetooth, three full-size USB 3.1 ports and a compact USB-C 3.1 port, HDMI video output, a media card reader, and a combined mic / headphone connector.

The notebook features a 3-cell 52 WHr battery. According to HP, the battery life is “up to 7 hours”.

It comes with either Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro pre-installed, depending on customers’ choice.
