HP ENVY 13
It even comes with a white backlit keyboard that's rather nice to type on. It doesn't flex beneath our fingers (even if we were to intentionally type harder than usual), and its keys have a decent amount of travel and feedback – traits that you won't usually find on an Ultrabook due to its characteristic svelte chassis.
Needless to say, we were plenty satisfied with the overall performance of the ENVY 13. It loads programs almost instantaneously, and even managed to maintain its brisk pace despite having a dozen different Google Chrome tabs opened in the background. We were able to hop back and forth between them without delay, too.
But that doesn't mean the ENVY 13 will be good at running games though, because it could only run Dota 2 on its highest graphics settings with an average frame rate of 21.5 fps. Mind you, this is even after we've downscaled the resolution of its display to Full HD (1,920 x 1,080). But then again, you really should have your priorities checked if you intend to use the ENVY 13 – which is by and large a notebook for churning out spreadsheets and PowerPoint slides – as a gaming notebook.
With that said, the ENVY 13 definitely comes highly recommended if you're looking for a notebook that's not only portable, but also potent enough to deliver a fuss-free user experience.
