Expert Review

Hp Envy 15

Whether you’re a creative type or just want a clamshell with a sense of style, the HP Envy 15 is worth a look. It has an excellent keyboard for working, and, if you’re security-focused, it has great security options to ensure no webcam spying.

As gorgeous as that AMOLED display is, though, it’s a battery drainer. That may be something you can rectify with a 1080p version of the Envy, especially since the XPS 15, MacBook Pro and MSI Prestige all lasted fairly long on a charge.

tomshardware.com

The HP Envy 15 is the company’s fastest consumer laptop and the one that best meets the needs of creative professionals with demanding workloads. Really, it’s not even close — if you want similar or greater power, you’ll need to step up to HP’s commercial line, specifically its workstations. And the Envy 15 does its job well — it’s fast, can be configured with even faster components if you want to spend more money, and provides the kind of display that will meet any creative need.

The HP Envy isn’t the most powerful portable workstation on the market, but it’s price to performance ratio is fantastic, making it a very strong competitor to the MacBook Pro for creative or engineering professionals – and it can even hold its own as a gaming laptop when you need a break.

Apple Macbook Pro

A tweaked keyboard and the option for a 10th Generation Intel “Ice Lake” CPU bring typing comfort and better performance to Apple’s already-excellent 13-inch MacBook Pro.

pcmag.com

If you’re looking for some mind-blowing generational technological advancement, the new 13-inch MacBook Pro is not for you. But if you’re looking for a laptop that’s undergone some necessary, incremental improvements, then you’re in the right place. The $1,799 MacBook Pro offers solid performance, a lighting-quick SSD and Apple’s ever elegant design. Plus, the company has closed the chapter on the Butterfly keyboard, bringing the fantastic Magic keyboard to the mix. Plus, you get double the storage. It’s not the jaw-dropping change you want, but the experience elevating change that MacBook fans need. 

www.laptopmag.com

Overall, I really like the MacBook Pro 2020, but I wouldn’t pay $1,299 for a pro-level laptop with an 8th gen processor. That’s why I highly recommend that you jump up to the $1,799 configuration of the 13-inch MacBook Pro, which delivers not only a 10th gen chip but faster RAM and four Thunderbolt 3 ports instead of two.
