HP ENVY 14-1260se laptop review – features and specs. HP ENVY 14-1260se is a thin and powerful laptop from the HP ENVY 14 Beats Edition.
HP ENVY 14-1260se is just 1.1″ thin and weighs around 5.70 pounds.
It has a fast 2.66GHz Intel Core i5-480M processor with Turbo boost technology (increases the performance up to 2.93 GHz). HP ENVY 14-1260se comes with 6GB DDR3 RAM which can be increased to 8GB (2 DIMM available). The hard drive of the HP ENVY 14-1260se is 750GB (5400RPM SATA) which is quite a lot for such a small device. This hard drive has the HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection (HP 3D DriveGuard) which locks the hard drive when it senses abrupt motion in order to prevent data loss.
HP ENVY 14-1260se has a nice 14.5-inch BrightView LED display with 1366 x 768 resolution. It is one of the good displays out there but I wish it was matte rather than glossy screen as this is a portable laptop which can often be exposed to direct sunlight.
The nice quality picture of this display is provided by the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 switchable graphics with 1024MB DDR3 with up to 3738MB total graphics memory. This video card is good enough for Full HD playback and most new games will run just fine as well.

These connections are also available:
1x RJ -45 (LAN)
