HP Envy 13 Wood Series review: Walnut enhances a slender, capable laptop
The HP Envy 13 Wood Series is the companyâ€™s second foray into natural design flourishesâ€”remember the leather-bound Spectre Folio? Now the companyâ€™s thin-and-light Envy 13 laptop has a Wood Series variant, featuring a walnut wood palm rest and touchpad.
While these details might seem frivolous to some, the finely textured wood panel makes for a surprisingly warm, yet practical touch in a laptop that (for the most part) nails the fundamentals. That said, the 4K display on this reasonably priced Envy model skimps on a key feature, and we also had some (non wood-related) touchpad issues.
