6 Other reasons to consider the HP ENVY 15

Released Over Two Years Ago

HP released the ENVY 15 over two years ago.

Average Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of 2.4 gigahertz, the ENVY 15 has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other notebook PCs of this spec and age.

We compared all the other 2.4GHz processor clock speed portable PCs to this portable PC and we think the ZBook 15[pl_2194743_price], and the Envy 15[pl_1572354_price] both from HP which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a laptop with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the HP ENVY 15[plb_2353927_price] (2.5GHz and cheaper), or the DELL Inspiron 14 7000[plb_2506111_price] (2.5GHz and cheaper).

Average Internal Memory

At 8 gigabytes, the ENVY 15 has a pretty average internal memory compared to most of the other notebook PCs of this age and type.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 8GB internal memory laptops currently available including the HP Probook 470[plb_1623572_price] which is cheaper.

Laptops with a bigger internal memory that might also be worth considering include the HP ENVY 15[plb_2353927_price] (12GB and cheaper) or the DELL XPS 15[plb_2555133_price] (16GB and higher rated).

Average Screen Size

With a screen size of 15.6 inches, the ENVY 15 has a pretty standard screen size compared to most of the other portable PCs that have been around for more than two years.

If this portable PC screen size is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the HP ENVY 17[plb_2353197_price] (17.3"), or the Acer Aspire V Nitro 17[plb_2548266_price] (17.3").

The ENVY 15 has a pretty typical total storage capacity (750 gigabytes) compared to most of the other many processor core portable PCs that came out more than two years ago.

We compared this laptop to all the other 750GB total storage capacity portable PCs and we think the DELL Inspiron 15R n5110[plb_1459444_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Notebook PCs with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth looking at include the HP ENVY 15[plb_2353927_price] (1TB), or the DELL Inspiron 14 7000[plb_2506111_price] (1TB) which is also cheaper.
