The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product family:
The product family is a generic trademark of a brand to indicate a very wide range of products, that can encompass multiple categories. We include product family in the Icecat product title.
Product series:
Product series is a brand's indication, often indicated by round numbers like 3000, that identifies a group of products within one category that are technically very similar. We don't include product serie in the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet to avoid confusion.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
EAN/UPC code :
European Article Number (EAN) and Universal Product Code (UPC) are better known as the barcode on a product's packaging to uniquely identify a product in a shop or logistic process. One product data-sheet can have multiple barcodes depending on logistic variations such as packaging or country.
A notebook, also known as laptop, is a portable computer. When you are looking for the right notebook, it is important to know where you are going to work with it. Do you want to use it on the road? Choose a model with a special energy-saving \'mobile\' processor, a good battery and a reasonably small display. This will allow you to work longer with the same battery and saves you the trouble of carrying around a large display that consumes a lot of precious battery power. Or will you be using you notebook mainly in places where you will have access to a power outlet? Then choose a desktop processor (more processing power for less money) and an ordinary battery. This will save you a lot of money, which you could then spend on a bigger screen. You\'ll work faster because you can view more information at once and it\'s great for multimedia!

Good Plenty of power, sensational design, excellent finish, great keyboard...
Bad Battery life, spec doesn't match US versions, some fan noise...
Bottom line We love what HP have done from a design perspective and the time and effort they have put into creating a great looking notebook will appeal to some users, who will be happy to pay the premium price this notebook commands. For some though, the asking p...
The Screen While it was initially touted as having a 15.6” LCD panel with Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels), the version of the Envy 15 we tested, unfortunately, was limited to a resolution of 1366 x 768. That’s about the minimum.Not surprisingl...
Good Highlevel performance, Excellent design and finish, Comfortable keyboard and excellent touchpad, Can run video games, Good audio...
Bad Short battery life, Glossy, poor quality display panel, Relatively noisy, No numeric keypad; some keys poorly located, No optical drive (optional external unit)...
Tweet Submit Starting life as a MacBook Pro competitor, the Envy is even more so in its latest incarnation. This doesn't mean that it doesn't have its own identity; red trims, a beautiful screen, a volume jog dial and HP's continued relationship wi...
Good Great sound, Good battery life, Highresolution display is welcome, Included software is highly appreciated...
Bad Radiance display shows red as orange, Mouse pad is high friction and the integrated click pad isn't the most accurate option...
Bottom line It's easy to be charmed by the design, audio and features of the Envy 15. Sadly, its selling feature, the optional high-resolution display, has the glaring fault of displaying red as orange.
HP's Envy 15 is a 2.7kg, 15.6in notebook with a good set of specifications and a very nice design. It looks good and has a couple of features that can't be found on other notebooks, such as a large, rotational volume control and a six-speaker system. I...
Good Looks good, Backlit keyboard, Core i7 CPU and 8GB RAM, Audio quality...
Bad Touchpad could be better, Screen too glossy, Keyboard is a little bouncy...
Bottom line While it's not the perfect specimen of a premium laptop, the HP Envy 15 still has a lot to like. It comes with a good configuration, it looks attractive and it sounds great. However, its input devices could use some refinement and its screen is too glo...
Editor's note: while our review sample shipped with 6GB RAM, final retail models ship with either 4GB or 8GB in Australia. A big brother to HP's 13-inch Envy 13, this upscale 15-inch model crams more computing power into a mid-size laptop than anyone o...
Good Slim for a powerhouse 15inch laptop, 1080p screen, Solid construction.
Bad No internal optical drive, Some Bluray playback issues, Very expensive...
Bottom line HP's new Envy 15 packs high-powered components into a svelte 15-inch body. The result is an upscale status symbol that still shows a few first-generation rough edges. Editors’ rating: 7.5/10...
One of the key benefits of Intel's new Haswell processors is the improved power-efficiency that leads to greater battery life and portability. It seems a little odd, then, that the first Haswell laptop we've seen from HP should be a 15.6-inch desktop repl...
What is the HP Envy Touchsmart 15? While most manufactures are chasing the ultrabook market at the moment, HP has provided us with a good old fashioned notebook powerhouse here: 15.6-inches, 2.56kg, a quad-core i7 CPU and a massive 16GB RAM all for exactl...
Good Impressive specs for the price, Great game performance for a laptop, Impressive sound output...
Bad Lack of SSD makes a speedy laptop feel sluggish, Flakey keyboard and uninspiring trackpad, Unimpressive screen...
Bottom line On paper, the specifications are impressive for the price, but the cut corners are obvious in the keyboard, touchpad and screen. A solid laptop then, but we'd hope for more to replace our desktop full time...
HP is looking to take on established players at the premium end of the laptop market with the introduction of its Envy range. The Envy 15 is currently the biggest machine in the range, and with a similar design and materials, it’s a suspiciously simila...
Taiwanese ODMs and lower-tier manufacturers have long tried to ape Apple's design ethic in the hope of generating some publicity. Larger entities, such as HP, have been known to take some inspiration as well, but they generally shy away from more overt im...
The keyboard is a little shallow for our liking, with not enough tactile feedback or depth to each key press. This makes long periods of typing slightly uncomfortable, so to avoid painful fingertips you'll need to type with a light touch.While the keyboar...
Bottom line A reasonable performer with generous storage, but a poor touchpad and disappointing screen means it isn't the best way to spend £380...
Good Processing power, Satisfactory gaming capabilities, Battery life (5 hrs of video playback)...
Bad No Full HD resolution (in our model), TN display with unfaithful colours, Glossy screen low brightness = reflections glare, Bad sound through audio output...
Bottom line We don't understand why HP chose to use such a low-quality screen on one of its most high-end laptops. Add to that the similar quality in the audio components, and you have a pretty forgettable computer...
Hewlett Packard has a long history supplying business machines to the corporate world; however, it's been branching more and more into the consumer world over the last few years, and the chic stylings of the Envy 15 attest to that (even if it does look...
When HP earlier this year, we were struck its design. The generous might suggest HP has borrowed a leaf from Apple’s design book – the cynical might not be so kind, with the resemblance between this notebook and the pretty obvious. Machined from...
Good Attractive styling, Relatively low price...
Bad Poor battery, Thigh singing heat after a while, Low resolution screen, Limited storage...
Bottom line The Envy 15 just falls short thanks to a poor battery life and cooling system. Those after a MacBook Pro-style Windows 7 laptop will be tempted, however.
HP is hedging its bets with this laptop , literally making it flexible enough to broaden its appeal. It's added folding tricks that let it fold back on itself, so where a normal laptop has a display that will hinge backward just beyond the vertical, the l...
HP's ENVY brand once represented the finest consumer laptops the company had to offer. You were certain to pay for it, but you could also be fairly certain you weren't going to be disappointed by what you got...
Good Good computing performance, Large keyboard with numeric keypad...
Bad Unacceptably low 1366x768 resolution, Heavy at 2.6kg, bulky at 30mm thick, Slow mechanical storage...
Bottom line Functional, but feels like a budget model with a AU$1,400/NZ$1,900 price tag...
With the arrival of its new high-end range of laptops, one manufacturer would have us believe that imitation truly is the most sincere form of flattery. Lightweight, slender and sheathed in aluminium – no, we’re not talking about Apple’s metal-framed M...
Bottom line HP's Envy 15 takes on Apple at its own game, but proves sinful in all the wrong ways...
The Envy line of laptops are the more deluxe consumer products from HP. One of the latest arrivals is the Envy Touchsmart 15-j003ed, a 15.6-inch laptop with a state-of-the-art Intel Haswell Core i7 quad-core processor, touchscreen and a decent graphics...
Bottom line The HP Envy 15-j003ed is a good-looking laptop with great specs. You get a touchscreen, a brand-new Core i7 Haswell quad-core processor and an Nvidia GeForce GT 740M graphics card. The battery life is also good, something that's always welcome for a lap...

HP's Envy range is the company's range-topping brand, looking to take on Apple's MacBook Pro, Dell's Adamo and Sony's high-end VAIO models. The Envy 13 is the smallest model in the range, and we’re the first publication in the UK to get a full look at...
