HP Envy 17 vs LG Gram 17 (2020)

2020 is just around the corner, and one trend that seems to be fairly promising for PC gamers are the high-end laptops. These machines will offer far beyond anything currently available on a console platform – both in terms of power as well as price. However, there’s also an issue with these products: they’re very expensive compared to what you can buy today. That’s where this article comes in! I’ve put together a list of some upcoming laptop models out now or set to release soon that should have prices below $1000 USD before 2020 ends.

The “hp envy 17t-cg100 review” is a laptop that has been released by HP. The laptop has the latest hardware and features, but does it have what you’re looking for?

We put the LG Gram 17 to the test and compared it against the HP Envy 17 in terms of performance, price, display quality, portability, battery life, and other factors.

The rankings with results can be seen above, while in-depth reviews on the two high-performance laptops can be found below.

LG Gram 17 is in first place.

  • Envy 17 has a better performance than you.
  • WQXGA monitor with sharp, high-quality images
  • On batteries, there is no performance limiting.
  • Audio quality is below par, and the bass is lacking.

Unrelentingly mobile. The LG gram 17 combines hitherto incompatible characteristics in a single device: a lightweight casing, a 17-inch display, a large number of ports, and a long battery life.

While 17-inch laptops “have been gradually phased out of manufacturers’ product portfolios in recent years,” a minor resurrection of this form factor seems to be on the horizon. Laptops may be made further smaller because to improved case designs, thin screen borders, lightweight materials, and permanently attached components.

This also helps the 17-inch TV, which was previously rather large and hefty. In the past, they were a decent desktop substitute, but most users on the move found them to be excessively big and cumbersome.

Meanwhile, it is conceivable to fit 17-inch displays inside the chassis of a 15-inch laptop, and zones are being entered that are not common even for 15-inch laptops in terms of weight.

1632847643_502_HP-Envy-17-vs-LG-Gram-17-2020

In this regard, the LG Gram 17 has chosen a very rigorous stance. LG manages to keep the weight down to an impressive 2.98 lbs by employing a magnesium alloy casing. As a result, the test device is on the verge of joining the ranks of light subnotebooks, and so meets a critical mobility criteria.

The LG Gram 17 starts at $1400 with an Intel Core i5-1035G7 processor, 8 GB of RAM, and a 512 GB SSD. Interested individuals may upgrade to an Intel Core i7-1065G7 processor, 16 GB RAM, and a 1 TB solid-state drive for an additional $150.

A high-capacity 80 Wh battery, a WQXGA display in 16:10 format (2,560 x 1,600 pixels), and extensive interface equipment, including Thunderbolt 3 and memory card reader, are always included in the box.

Design & Interfaces / Ports

The LG gram 17’s casing, which weighs just 2.91 pounds, is its most striking feature (test weight). The material utilized here is a blend of plastic and magnesium alloy, which impresses with its record-breaking lightweight in addition to a decent degree of torsional stiffness.

However, the low weight is accomplished by using materials with narrow thicknesses. When you push the display lid or the bottom panel, this becomes apparent. Nonetheless, the 17-inch screen has passed several MIL-STD-810G tests, according to LG 7, and should be suitable for mobile usage.

Aside from that, the roughened and darker grey surface has a nice haptic and may effectively disguise fingerprints and dust deposits.

The wide, centrally located display hinge delivers a powerful punch and enables for carefully dosed tilt adjustment. It cannot, however, prevent teetering while moving. The display’s maximum opening angle is 145 degrees. That should enough for the majority of applications.

1632847643_440_HP-Envy-17-vs-LG-Gram-17-2020

In exchange, the keyboard unit’s stability might be improved. A drawback of the lightweight design is shown here, necessitating yet another willingness to sacrifice on pressure resistance.

With a little push, the keyboard unit may be seen pressed in. However, in fact, this effect has a smaller influence than one would assume. When writing, the hands on the wrist-rest plainly offer a counterbalance, a form of surface tension, which reduces keyboard swaying substantially.

The LG gram 17’s bottom has no separate maintenance flaps. To reach the components housed within, you must remove the complete cover.

Under rubber coverings, all screws are concealed. In the handbook, LG does not give any instructions for opening them. As is customary, before working on your own, you should familiarize yourself with the current warranty terms.

In terms of features, the LG Gram 17 leaves little to be desired. A broad variety of applications are covered by Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.1 Gen.2, HDMI 2.0, and a memory card reader. Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, and a USB type C to Ethernet adaptor are also included (RJ45).

The interfaces’ placement and spacing are successful, and they should not obstruct practical usage. The power supply has its own independent mains connector.

The Viewsonic VP2780-4k display (3,840 x 2,160 pixels) worked well at 60 Hz over HDMI 2.0 throughout the test. The test device sends data at up to 2,816 MB/s through Thunderbolt 3, 950 MB/s over USB 3.1 Gen. 2, and almost 90 MB/s via the memory card reader.

LG has piled up a lot of information on the data sheet, particularly in terms of the HDMI and USB ports’ type-A capabilities.

Sound

The two 1.5 watt speakers are mounted on the underbody’s side and provide a well balanced sound. Bass and midrange are well-represented. The trebles, on the other hand, seem a little tinny, particularly at high levels, and so come to the fore sporadically.

1632847644_817_HP-Envy-17-vs-LG-Gram-17-2020

The maximum volume generates a sound pressure level of 74.6 dB(A), which should be enough for smaller presentations. External solutions may be linked through Bluetooth, USB, or a 3.5 mm connector, as is customary.

The test gadget seems to be well-equipped for usage in conjunction with real-time audio chores. The Latency Mon tool showed maximum latencies of 944 s after 30 minutes of testing.

As a result, the 1,000-second critical limit is only undercut. As a result, quality issues such as synchronization difficulties, dropouts, and sound cracking should be avoided.

Touchpad & Keyboard

LG makes excellent use of the keyboard’s available casing surface. LG has a full-sized number pad in addition to the standard primary keypad. The keys feature a 19 mm grid, a good pressure point, and a low stroke noise.

The keys are a little smaller in the region of the number pad and the F-key row, but users nevertheless benefit from a fairly comfortable size when compared to many rival models. With a little pressure and no hands, the keyboard mat yields, although this result is rare.

LG has used a high contrast font for the keyboard labeling and a bright orange hue for the alternative functionalities in the F-key bar. There are two brightness settings on the typical integrated keyboard lighting.

1632847644_253_HP-Envy-17-vs-LG-Gram-17-2020

The start button houses not only the Goodix fingerprint reader, but also a wake-up function for the keyboard lighting. When the keyboard labels are no longer visible in the dark, this is useful since the exposed location of the power button is always discovered.

Despite the wide keyboard and separate number pad, LG places the touchpad in front of the screen in the middle. On such versions, it was once usual practice to align the location with the space key and so relocate the touchpad to the left side of the casing. This method has been described as “uncomfortable” and “restrictive” by several users. There’s no difficulty here!

Aside from that, the 119 x 78 mm clickpad with excellent gliding properties and smooth-running mouse buttons is a pleasure to use. The test revealed no limits.

Display

LG’s gram 17 is only available with a WQXGA display (2,560 x 1,600 pixels). But that’s not such a terrible thing since the LG Philips panel fitted here performs a lot of things well.

This undoubtedly includes the 16:10 aspect ratio, which many users have been clamoring for. Image editors, scribblers, graphic artists, and web designers, for example, benefit from the extra pixels in the vertical direction.

1632847645_926_HP-Envy-17-vs-LG-Gram-17-2020

As a result, it is appropriate for the intended audience. Furthermore, the 177 ppi fine dot density, along with the smooth screen surface, results in an exceedingly wonderfully crisp display.

In fact, the smooth display surface is the display’s Achilles’ heel, despite its overall high quality. Because of the absence of an efficient anti-reflection coating, overlaid mirror images might present restrictions in highly illuminated rooms, but notably when used outdoors. The effects get more distressing when the ambient light condition becomes brighter and the visual content becomes darker.

The excellent display brightness cannot always outshine this mirror effect. In both mains and battery operation, the WQXGA display achieves a maximum brightness of 415 cd/m2 in the centre of the screen.

The brightness dips to up to 349 cd/m2 in the top right corner of the screen as you go closer to the borders. As a result, the average lighting is just 84 percent. In monochromatic visual material, this brightness loss is only rudimentarily evident.

Brighter spots in the corners become visible in the dark picture. Otherwise, there are no halos or cloud forms visible.

The brightness may be adjusted using the normal 11 preset brightness levels or the Windows display settings in percent. Brightness levels 6 and 5 both provided 202 cd/m2 and 142 cd/m2, respectively.

LG controls brightness by PWM (pulse width modulation) at a frequency of 50 Hz up to brightness level 6. This may be upsetting to sensitive users.

The black value is 0.219 cd/m2 and the contrast ratio is 1.894:1, which is excellent. This is reduced to 1.657:1 after profiling.

The total number of colors that may be shown spans 94.4 percent of the sRGB color space. Only a few minor locations in the outskirts are missing. This is not only enough for representing delicate color gradations, but it also serves as a solid foundation for accurate color reproduction.

LG puts its many years of expertise as a display maker to good use here, delivering a panel with a proper white point and exceptionally accurate color reproduction in its shipping form. With a maximum DeltaE 2000 of 4.3 (difference from ideal, the lower the better, limit at 5) out of the box, the user is given a true-color display without having to touch it.

1632847646_601_HP-Envy-17-vs-LG-Gram-17-2020

LG’s gram 17 joins an exclusive club of laptop models and is expected to swiftly gain a following, particularly among designers, photographers, and graphic designers.

By profiling the display, perfectionists may extract one or two optimizations. The maximum DeltaE 2000 could still be pushed to 2.7 and the average DeltaE 2000 to 1.1 using the X-Rite i1 Basic Pro 2 spectrophotometer.

As a result, the LG Gram 17 boasts one of the greatest displays tested in laptops and mobile phones, and it is the only 17-inch model to make it into the top 10 so far. PWM and the reflecting surface, on the other hand, may be a deal-breaker for certain users.

Performance

The LG Gram 17 is now available in two distinct variants. The CPU is either an Intel Core i7-1065G7 or an Intel Core i5-1035G7. The Intel Iris Plus Graphics 940, which has 64 execution units, is therefore available for graphics output in both scenarios.

In the delivery stage, the i5 must make due with 8 GB RAM in single channel mode. The i7, on the other hand, has 16 GB of RAM in dual channel mode.

The current test equipment is powered by the Intel Core i5-1035G7, which is a very common processor. This processor, which is part of the Intel Ice Lake series, has four computational cores, can execute eight threads at once, and has a maximum turbo clock rate of 3.7 GHz.

While many manufacturers, particularly with today’s Intel CPUs, are progressively attempting to maximize performance by boosting power dissipation, LG is taking a far more cautious approach. The LG gram 17 processor can only run for a few seconds at a time, using up to 29.4 watts (CPU Package HWinfo).

1632847646_872_HP-Envy-17-vs-LG-Gram-17-2020

After that, the power usage lowers to 15 watts quite rapidly (about 1-2 minutes). The usage drops to about 12 watts after around 5 minutes of compute activity.

This CPU optimization is only appropriate in light of the laptop idea with the highest potential mobility and extended battery life. On the other hand, for many people, this may be too wonderful a thing since the CPU performance is borderline poor.

Cinebench R15 only gets 145 points in the single thread test and 474 points in the multi-thread test in the normal test. As a result, the test configuration virtually matches the performance of the Toshiba Tecra A50-E-110 with Intel Core i5-8250U.

The LG Gram 17 also obtains 162 points in the single thread test and 536 points in the multi-thread test under ideal circumstances in a cold state and with ample pause between single tests.

The option to engage a quiet mode may be found in LG’s Control Center. If you choose this option, the already low operational volume of 28.6 dB(A) will be decreased to 26.8 dB(A) (A).

In terms of power, one might anticipate an even greater drop in performance. In the Cinebench R15 single thread test, just 130 points are left, and 314 points in the multi-thread test.

Long load phases are not recommended for the LG gram 17. In the Geekbench CPU stress test, the processor drops its clock rates quite fast, and only operates at 1.7 GHz to 2.0 GHz after the third round (12 watts). The scores decline from 10.925 points to around 9.000 points before settling at roughly 8.900 points in the long run.

The LG gram 17’s graphics output is always handled by Intel’s Iris Plus Graphics 940. With 64 execution units, the possibly most powerful form is employed here. The Intel Iris Plus Graphics 940, like other integrated graphics solutions, needs to make do without its own graphics memory.

Instead, this is taken from the RAM. However, the 8 GB DDR4-3200 installed in the test device operates in single channel mode, slowing down the otherwise excellent performance.

As a result, only 6,287 points and 29 frames per second are attained in 3D Mark Night Raid and Unigine Heaven Basic, respectively. This “issue” might be remedied with a sufficient RAM bar thanks to a free RAM slot. The Intel Iris Plus Graphics 940 with dual-channel RAM, for example, obtains 9,482 points (Night Raid) and 47 frames per second in the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3. (Heaven Basic).

1632847647_715_HP-Envy-17-vs-LG-Gram-17-2020

Apart from that, you’ll find all of the features you’ve come to expect from this graphics chip series: External monitors with a resolution of up to 5,120 x 3,200 pixels at 60 Hz may be used, Intel Quick Sync Video speeds up video conversions, UHD movies play smoothly, and it can handle up to three screens at once.

In the test arrangement, Samsung’s M.2 PCIe SSD PM981 with a gross capacity of 512 GB delivers enough memory. This is adequate for a variety of uses and is a viable option. The LG gram 17 has a second M.2 slot, which allows for the use of a second hard drive.

In terms of performance, Samsung’s offering is unquestionably among the best currently available. There should be no bottlenecks in usage at reading speeds of up to 3,468 MB/s and writing speeds of up to 1,966 MB/s.

Levels of noise and temperature

The emissions show a significant influence of the CPU’s relatively shoddy configuration. Even while working at maximum capacity, the operational noise never exceeds 28.6 decibels (dB) (A).

1632847647_484_HP-Envy-17-vs-LG-Gram-17-2020

This reduces even lower to only 26.8 dB in low-noise mode (A). During the test time, there was no high-frequency or other distracting background noise.

Despite the constrained fan activity, the keyboard region warms up to a high of 45.7 °C after more than an hour of processing stress. On the bottom, the temperature of 46.9 °C is just slightly higher. In any situation, limitations are unavoidable.

Life of the battery

Aside from the preset consumption rates, the comparatively large 80 Wh battery plays a vital role in ensuring the longest possible battery life. Depending on the load situation, the LG Gram 17 with realistic settings lasts between 5 and 12 hours in the test. For many job settings, this should enough.

The WiFi module, on the other hand, consumes a lot of power. The runtime is decreased by around 40% as soon as it is permanently required.

1632847648_121_HP-Envy-17-vs-LG-Gram-17-2020

In battery mode, the performance hardly degrades. You can work virtually as quickly here as you can in mains operation with 5%–10% less power.

Once the 80 Wh battery is depleted, a 2:51 hour charging period must be scheduled. Almost 70% of the time is available again after 1:45 hours. The LG gram 17 does not include a rapid charge feature that can be turned on or off.

Verdict

With its gram 17, LG consciously deviates from the well-worn rating badge notebook pathways. LG establishes a distinct exclamation mark in terms of features, mobility, and emissions, in contrast to the traditional rivalry for especially high computer or graphics performance.

The interface equipment seems to be functional and well-designed. LG even outperforms the data sheet with more powerful interface versions, due to HDMI 2.0 and USB 3.1 Gen. 2. Thunderbolt 3, a memory card reader, and a fingerprint scanner ultimately push the equipment to the high end of the spectrum.

Aside from that, the 17-incher impresses with its ultra-light design, excellent WQXGA display, and scarcely perceptible operation noise.

 

With all of these excellent traits, you must accept a highly restrained computing and graphic performance. Depending on the circumstance, the test setup lags roughly 20% to 30% behind comparably equipped rivals.

As compensation for the reduced emissions, consumers enjoy lengthy battery runtimes based on real-world experience. These are well-suited to the mobile environment and highlight the unique notebook idea.

LG’s overall package is ultimately completed with a 2-year manufacturer’s guarantee and highly competitive price, which is why the LG Gram 17 outperforms the HP Envy 17.

HP Envy 17 is ranked second.

1632847649_58_HP-Envy-17-vs-LG-Gram-17-2020

  • Long-lasting battery
  • LG Gram 17 has a lower pricing.
  • Doesn’t get too hot

All-around performer. The multimedia all-rounder from Hewlett Packard is well-equipped, has a stylish casing, and has a long battery life.

With the Envy 17, HP offers a 17.3-inch multimedia laptop in its lineup. A quad-core ULV processor powers the PC.

Computer games may be played thanks to a dedicated GeForce graphics core. The Acer Aspire 5 A517-51G and the Asus VivoBook Pro 17 N705UD-EH76 are two competitors.

Design

In the Envy 17, HP uses a silver metal casing. The display bezel is the only part of the device that isn’t black. On the production side, there are no flaws to be found in the laptop.

There are no material protrusions and the gap measurements are proper. However, the stability of the basic unit needs to be criticized. The rigidity of the latter should be greater. The battery is securely fastened. There is no maintenance flap on the PC.

To access to the insides of the case, you must first open it. To do so, first open the DVD burner’s drawer. When you open the drawer, you’ll see a screw that needs to be removed.

1632847649_520_HP-Envy-17-vs-LG-Gram-17-2020

Then take out all of the screws on the unit’s bottom. Three more screws are buried behind the rear rubber strip. After that, with the assistance of a joint smoother, gently remove the bottom tray.

In terms of interfaces, HP’s 17.3-inch HP is unsurprising. Here, HP provides basic stuff. The USB 3.1 Gen 1 standard is supported by all four USB ports (3 type A, 1 type C).

Given the computer’s pricing, we would have anticipated a type C USB 3.1 Gen 2 connector or, at the very least, a Thunderbolt 3 port. HDMI may be used to connect a monitor.

The memory card reader is one of the most rapid in its class. When copying huge data blocks, a maximum transfer rate of 82.9 MB/s is reached. At a pace of 72.2 MB/s, 250 JPG picture files (each roughly 5 MB) are sent. Using a reference card, we put the memory card reader to the test (Toshiba Exceria Pro SDXC 64 GB UHS-II).

The Envy’s WiFi module has an Intel processor (Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265). This chip supports the 802.11a/b/g/h/n WiFi protocols as well as the fast ac standard.

We were able to get good transmission speeds under ideal circumstances (no other WiFi devices in the near neighborhood, little distance between laptop and server PC).

Touchpad & Keyboard

The Envy 17 comes with an illuminated chiclet keyboard from Hewlett Packard. The keys are flat and smooth, with a short stroke and a distinct pressure point. The most important barrier is pleasant.

1632847650_694_HP-Envy-17-vs-LG-Gram-17-2020

At best, the keyboard gives barely while typing. This hasn’t been a bother thus far. Overall, HP provides a well-designed keyboard that is also appropriate for regular typists.

The multi-touch-capable clickpad is around 12 x 6 cm in size. As a result, there is adequate room to use the gesture control. Fingers slide easily over the smooth surface. With a short stroke and a distinct pressure point, the pad is easy to use.

Display

The 17.3-inch glossy display on the Envy has a native resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The brightness (329.6 cd/m2) and contrast (1.135:1) are also satisfactory. Positive: There is no PWM flickering on the screen.

1632847651_375_HP-Envy-17-vs-LG-Gram-17-2020

In the delivery condition, the color display is acceptable. The target range is not too far away, with a Delta E 2000 color deviation of 4.34. The display does not have a blue tint to it.

The 17.3-inch HP monitor has an IPS display with a wide viewing angle. As a result, the screen can be read from any angle. The brightness and contrast of the display make it suitable for outdoor usage, while the maximum brightness dips somewhat in battery mode. However, the effort is made more harder by the glossy display surface.

Performance

The Envy 17 is a multimedia all-rounder with a 17.3-inch display. It has adequate processing power to handle all typical applications. Computer games may be played because to the specialized graphics core. The cost of our test gadget is about $1150. There are many other equipment options. The starting price is $900.

With the Core i5-8250U (Kaby Lake Refresh) quad-core processor, Intel’s latest ULV CPU for the midrange can be found on the Envy. The CPU should be able to meet the performance needs of the vast majority of users. The CPU has a basic clock speed of 1.6 GHz. Turbo may boost the processor’s speed to 3.4 GHz.

1632847651_729_HP-Envy-17-vs-LG-Gram-17-2020

The processors used in our CPU tests range from 3 to 3.3 GHz (multi-thread) or 3 to 3.4 GHz (single-thread) (single-thread). A CPU core may be lowered to 2.4 to 2.7 GHz on occasion. The functioning of the mains and the batteries are same.

We’ll perform the Cinebench R15’s multi-thread test in a continuous loop for roughly 30 minutes to see whether the turbo is also employed permanently. The results decline somewhat from the first to the third run and then stay steady. As a result, the turbo is employed.

On the performance aspect of the system, there’s nothing to complain about. The system runs smoothly and fluidly thanks to a solid state drive and a fast Core i5 CPU. The excellent PC Mark scores speak to the computer’s ability to handle programs other than office and the internet.

Computer games may be played because to the specialized graphics core. It is impossible to improve overall performance. HP has used up all of his resources.

As the system drive, a LiteOn SATA-III SSD is used. It’s an M.2-2280 variant with a total storage capacity of 128 GB. In the delivery stage, around 84 GB are useable. The recovery partition and the Windows installation share the remaining storage space.

The transfer rates are excellent. Alternatively, an NVMe-SSD may be installed in the Envy 17. Because they are linked through PCI Express x4 3.0, these models have much greater transfer speeds.

A traditional 2.5-inch hard drive is also included in the PC, in addition to the SSD. It has a storage capacity of 1 TB and rotates at a speed of 7,200 RPM.

Gaming Capabilities

Hewlett Packard’s graphic core is similarly based on a midrange concept. The installed GeForce MX150 GPU supports DirectX 12 and has a clock speed of 1.532 MHz. A total of 2,048 MB of GDDR5 RAM supports the graphics processor. The results in the 3DMark benchmarks are on par with what you’d expect from a GPU of this kind.

1632847652_113_HP-Envy-17-vs-LG-Gram-17-2020

As a multimedia all-rounder, the Envy 17 effortlessly displays practically all current games. In HD resolution (1,366 x 768 pixels) and medium quality settings, most games attain appropriate high refresh rates.

Games that don’t put too much strain on the system allow for more. Extremely resource-intensive games need a drop in resolution or quality level. For example, in the game Final Fantasy XV, this is the case.

Levels of noise and temperature

When the Envy laptop is idle, the fan often stops functioning. Because the hard drive noise may be heard, the silence is typically still. The fan is hardly audible even when it is turned off.

Of course, this varies depending on the load. The sound pressure level climbs to 39.7 dB during the stress test (A). For a notebook in this performance class, this value is acceptable.

The Envy does not feature the BIOS option “Fan always on,” unlike all of the other HP laptops we examined.

1632847652_352_HP-Envy-17-vs-LG-Gram-17-2020

In both mains and battery mode, the HP laptop passes our stress test (Prime95 and FurMark run for at least an hour). The CPU operates at 2.3 to 2.7 GHz for the first few minutes of the test.

The clock rate then decreases to 1.7 to 2.3 GHz. The speed oscillates between 1.2 and 1.8 GHz as the test progresses. The graphics core runs at a frequency of roughly 1,500 MHz.

The Envy does not get extremely hot. At all test points throughout the stress test, the temperatures are obviously below 40°C.

Sound

The stereo speakers from Bang & Olufsen are hidden under a perforated cover above the keyboard. They have a very thin sound. The bass is mostly absent.

1632847653_694_HP-Envy-17-vs-LG-Gram-17-2020

In this regard, we would have anticipated more from a multimedia all-rounder. Headphones or external speakers are required for a better sound experience.

Life of the battery

Our practical WiFi test replicates the load when a script is used to call up web sites. The “balanced” profile is selected, the display brightness is set to about 150 cd/m2, and the energy-saving features are disabled.

The Envy 17 clocks in at 8:07 hours.

Verdict

Overall, the Envy 17-ae43ng left a positive impression. The integrated Core i5 CPU is powerful enough to handle all typical application situations. It takes all current computer games to the Full-HD screen when used in conjunction with the GeForce-MX150 graphics processor. The PC does not get too noisy or hot.

Positive: Unlike many other laptops with an Intel ULV quad-core processor, the Envy can prolong the CPU’s turbo for an extended amount of time and at a reasonably high level. Thus, the computational capability of the Core-i7-7700HQ quad-core CPU, which has a TDP of 45 watts, is virtually attained.

With the Envy 17-ae143ng, Hewlett Packard offers a well-equipped multimedia all-rounder in the 17.3-inch configuration.

 

A fast-running system is ensured by a solid-state disk. If required, an NVMe model might be used instead. The Envy comes with a 1TB 2.5-inch hard drive in addition to the SSD. A drive swap would be doable, but it would need opening the notebook’s casing.

HP has a pretty nice lighted keyboard that may also be used for conventional typing. This is enhanced by the long battery life. The viewing angle stable IPS Full HD screen’s brightness and contrast are quite attractive. Regrettably, HP has put a reflecting display at this location.

1632847653_99_HP-Envy-17-vs-LG-Gram-17-2020

There aren’t many ways to criticize The Envy. Apart from the shiny display, the loudspeakers, which are unfit for a multimedia laptop, must also be highlighted. Furthermore, HP only has a type C USB 3.1 Gen 1 port on the laptop.

In connection to the price point of the computer, we anticipate a Thunderbolt 3 port, which is why the HP Envy 17 falls short of the LG Gram 17.

The HP Envy 17 is still an excellent pick as an all-around performance in its price class due to its reduced pricing.

In the 2020, LG has released a new laptop called the “LG Gram 17”. The HP Envy 17 is a competitor to this product. Reference: lg vs hp.
