There's a lot to love about HP's Envy 15, unless accurate colors are important to you: as we discovered in January, the optional (and otherwise excellent) $150 1080p Radiance Display can't distinguish red from orange, or violet from blue. HP admits that colors may display differently, but claims it's not a hardware problem.
The HP Envy 15's Radiance Display may not have the color gamut we'd hoped for. Take a look at these comparison pictures with a 13-inch MacBook Air and a Dell U2412M IPS desktop monitor.
The HP Envy 15's Radiance Display may not have the color gamut we'd hoped for. Owners are complaining that the laptop screen doesn't properly display red or violet, and that seems to be the case in our review unit, too.
