The HP Envy 13” unites the attractive natural traits of wood with an exceptional business laptop. The palmrest and trackpad surface are made from wood veneer, either birch or walnut, which provides a warm and natural surface with uninterrupted woodgrain. HP could have stamped or etched metal with a woodgrain pattern, but they knew this wouldn’t be good enough. Their designers made sure that the surface was not just attractive to the eye but also pleasant to touch, provides a good navigation experience, and maintains the texture of wood. It was a challenge to make sure that the wood surface withstands environmental testing for humidity, sweat, etc. so that it maintains its form and feel over time. This is how a premium laptop should feel.
