Now that the tenth-generation Intel Core processors are starting to reach more laptops on the market, HP has made them available in its mid-range Envy 13t. The laptop, which starts at less than $ 1,000, is now available with the 10th generation Core i7 CPU, and can be equipped as desired with discrete graphics and a screen up to 4K.
The HP Envy 13t is a 13-inch laptop backed by the Intel Core i7-10510U processor and up to 16 GB of RAM. That is not the most powerful Core i7 chip in the Intel line, but it should be more than enough to cover most of the general tasks you throw at it.
Where things get interesting is with the ways you can customize the Envy 13t to meet your needs. HP offers configurations that include discrete NVIDIA MX250 graphics, which will not drive intense gaming sessions, but will help drive any photo and video work you need to do. The 13.3-inch screen is also available in touch and non-touch options, with 1080p and 4K panels offered in both variants.
Finally, you can opt for up to 1TB of SSD storage, but there are also 256GB and 512GB options with Intel Optane memory on board. In simple terms, Optane memory, available in 16GB or 32GB here, is intended to accelerate some of your most used applications and processes by keeping them up to date at all times.
The HP Envy 13t is now available from HP starting at $ 750. Interestingly, you can currently set up the laptop with discrete graphics and a non-touch 4K screen for less than $ 1,000. Not bad.
