Glass fiber with silky touch paint silver HP Envy TouchSmart has a comfortable keyboard with a 10 key numeric keypad and a functional touchpad for when you want to have a break from the touchscreen with multi-touch gestures. Its 6-cell 47WHr lithium-ion battery lasts for a bit under 5 hours in normal use in single charge.

HP CoolSense technology helps keep your laptop cool and you can work comfortably on it for hours. Being so slim and light it has no optical drive, but all the other useful ports and connectivity options you can think of: Intel 2x2 802.11b/g/n WLAN, Bluetooth 4.0, Intel Wireless Display, 4 x USB 3.0 ports, HDMI port to be able to watch videos on larger HDTVs, 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN, built-in multi-format digital media card reader, 1 RJ-45 (LAN), 1 Headphone-out/microphone-in combo jack..

Conclusion: HP ENVY TouchSmart 15-j050us is a modern, slim and attractive laptop with strong overall performance and awesome build quality- durability. Yes, it doesn't have a backlit keyboard and the battery life could be a little longer but don't forget that this is a very high class entertainment laptop with amazing sound and display quality and all the useful features you will make use of on a daily basis. And the price you're offered on Amazon.com is well below the recommended market price. Not to be missed!
