Hey buying a new laptop and looking at HP ENVY 13 as it is a very good laptop with reasonable pricing. The specs that I think will affect if elementary can run is as below:

Intel 8th Gen i7-8550U nVidia MX 150 CPU fan that will turn on only when it reaches a certain temperature. USB type-C ports microSD slot Broadcomm WiFi

With the above in mind, has anyone gotten elementary to run on a HP ENVY 13 or anything equivalent?

1 Answer 1


What does not work: MicroSD card slot, Two front-facing speakers.

What works with issues: USB-C with a USB hub plugged in (the ethernet is wonky, then again might not be the laptop's fault).

What should you do after installing eOS on this: Install TLP and powertop. Else your power and temperature will suffer.

  • Is this info from your own personal experience with elementary OS on an HP Envy 13, or from second-hand experience you heard / read somewhere? It's just useful to clarify. Mar 29, 2022 at 11:33
