HP 13.3" FHD Envy Laptop - i7 2.8GHz CPU, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD $1519 Delivered @ Bing Lee

150

I've been monitoring the price on this laptop for a couple of months now. It stubbornly remained at lowest $1,899 at retailers but now Bing Lee has dropped the price to $1,519 with free delivery for this weekend.

I was pitching this head to head against a Dell XPS 13 (9310) waiting for one or the other to drop to this price but last week bit the bullet on an XPS 13 with the same specs from the Dell Outlet for $1,749 (very happy with it by the way, but only after a clean Windows install)

Hoping someone else can benefit from this price drop.

    If I'm paying $1.5K for a laptop, it's gotta have either a retina display or a dedicated graphics card

    •  

      Examples? I thought this looked alright for 13" with 16gb/512. Any competitors with dedicated graphics?

        If you have access to an edu email, you can get the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim Pro(very different to a regular IdeaPad) for $1048.03 delivered from the Lenovo Education store. Slightly bigger screen at 14" but much better specifications.

        https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/637014

        Specifications:

        AMD Ryzen 5 5600U (6 core/12 thread) 15w TDP (This deal only has a quad-core CPU)
        16GB RAM
        512 SSD
        Nvidia MX450 2GB (This deal has no dGPU)
        14.0" 2.2K (2240x1400) IPS 300nits Anti-glare, 60Hz, 100% sRGB (This deal only offers a 1080p display)
        56.5 Wh battery
        Full Aluminium chassis

        If you need the 8 core/16 thread AMD Ryzen 7 5800U CPU, the price increases to $1218.04

        If you need a performance comparison, you can use a reputable site such as Passmark which has been around since 1998. You will note that the AMD Ryzen 5 5600U and Ryzen 7 5800u have significantly better overall performance vs the Intel i7 11th Gen.

        https://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare/Intel-i7-1165G7-vs-AMD-...

        Intel-i7-1165G7 scores 10619

        AMD Ryzen 5 5600u scores 16278

        AMD Ryzen 7 5800u scores 19660

        Both AMD Ryzen CPUs, based on Zen 3, also have better single threaded performance vs the 11th gen i7.

          Geez that is alright… just spec'd it up with a Ryzen 7 and the MX450 and 3 years onsite warranty for $1483.94

          If only I truly needed a new laptop

          @shellshocked A really well specc'd laptop for just over $1K, thanks for this comment

    Can you seriously tell a difference for any screen above FHD for 13"?

    •  

      Honestly, probably not, unless you're sitting <10cm away from your screen. At that point, you're just pushing more pixels than you need to; unnecessary battery usage.

      I have an AMD Ryzen based Lenovo S540 13" laptop with a 16:10 QHD display. I can easily tell the difference between QHD and FHD after upgrading from an Envy. I also get 9 to 10hrs battery life, using productivity applications, at this resolution.

      If you use a QHD or 4K screen for a little while and then go back to a FHD screen you'll notice a huge difference. If you never go beyond FHD, you'll be fine, but you can't miss what you've never experienced.

        Just wait till you go 4k oled on 13.3 inch haha!

  •  

    tempted. But i really dont need another laptop.. Ahhh

  •  

    I got a spectre for myself, the 4k oled one, was so happy with it. Ended up getting the envy from officeworks on sale for 1200. Got it for the gf. She loves it. The quality seems good from hp for these style 2in1. The screens hp using are good nits and clear glossy also. The oled is awesome. 4k on 13.3 inch is actually good for me because my vision is exceptionally good.

    I was tempted to go for a price beat at Officeworks, out of stock now. Probably for the best, this was a want not a need
