Three laptops launching December 7th: the Envy 15, Envy 17 and Envy 17 3D starting at $1,100, $1,250 and $1,600, respectively. What they all offer you is a really original design that has been tuned to the likes of HP quite nicely this time, and has some great specs to boot (including Beats Audio software enhancements). The Envy 15 will receive an optional 15.6-inch, 1080p Radiance IPS screen panel, built-in backlit keyboard that adjusts to light settings and a great thin design. The entire Envy line will have access to quad-core CPUs, and come standard with six speakers, a subwoofer, HP’s CoolSense technology and support for HP Wireless Audio. The Envy 17, in particular, can be configured with either a 128GB mSATA SSD or dual 1TB drives. And of course all of them have Beats Audio on-board.
As for what you were waiting for, the Envy 15 will come with the following base specs: Core i5-2430M CPU, 6GB of RAM, a 500GB 7,200RPM hard drive, 1366 x 768 display, Bluetooth, Intel Wireless Display, a slot-loading DVD burner and AMD Radeon HD graphics (HP didn’t say which one, yet), HDMI, one DisplayPort, two USB 3.0 sockets and one of the 2.0 persuasion. As for the 8-cell, 76Wh battery, it purportedly provides up to nine hours of life. The Envy 17 starting specs aren’t much different, as they add more hard drive space and more ports.
Press release after the break.
