Touch control

The ENVY 15-J181na comes with Windows 8.1 pre-installed. Packed full of intuitive apps, it makes sure that you always have the information that’s important to you when you need it.

Optimised for touch, Windows 8.1 features Live Tiles which let you monitor and control your applications in real time. Whether you’re keeping an eye on the news or simply staying in touch with friends, Windows 8.1 has a range of apps to suit your needs.

With integrated cloud connectivity, Windows 8.1 is ideal for people on the move. Simply sign into any Windows 8 device using your email address and you’ll be able to access files, folders and documents previously saved at home or in the office.

Powerful yet portable

The ENVY 15 runs on a powerful quad-core IntelĀ® i7-4700MQ processor that features a rapid 3.4 GHz TurboBoost clock speed for serious portable computing. Four cores and eight-way multithreading work with 12 GB of RAM to deliver an instant, lag-free computing experience whatever you’re working on.

File storage comes courtesy of a 1 TB solid-state hybrid drive (SSHD), which combines a large capacity hard drive with a high-performance solid state drive (SSD). Capable of booting, saving and accessing data with the improved speeds of an SSD without sacrificing capacity, it’s the ideal storage device for serious on the go computing.

Media on the move

Graphics come courtesy of a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GT 840M graphics card for vastly improved visuals across films, TV and games.

This is complimented by a full HD LED screen that delivers visuals with impressive clarity and detail that’s perfect for enjoying a wide range of media.

Ensuring that the audio experience is as good as the visual, this laptop fitted with Beats Audio technology, which delivers audio via four built-in speakers and a dual subwoofer.

Quick to connect

Accessing the internet is easy thanks to integrated WiFi and an Ethernet port, while pairing peripherals is easy thanks to Bluetooth 4.0 and four USB 3.0 ports. USB 3.0 provides a fast and reliable connection to external devices such as mice and external hard drives.
