HP launched a new Envy laptop line to help stave off people's hunger for a new MacBook. HP has three new notebooks - the Envy 13, Envy 17, and Envy x360 15 - which were unveiled at the Cannes Film Festival in France adding a touch of elegance to the already elegantly designed HP laptops.
SlashGear relayed that the Envy 13 and Envy 17 are virtually the same save for the size. This HP Envy 13 comes with a 13.3-inch display while the Envy 17 has a larger 17-inch display. Buyers can choose between 1080p or 4K resolution. The all-metal notebooks are powered by three different processors, namely, Core i3, i5 and i7. The Core i3 base model is priced at $1,049 and likely to come with 8GB of RAM. It also has 14 hours of battery life which is a couple of hours longer than the MacBook Air. The Envy 13 is also primed to compete with the Microsoft Surface Laptop though it is already considered better thanks to more storage and customization options. Both laptops also use Bang & Olufson speakers. BGR also reported that buyers can opt to have a discrete Nvidia 940MX graphics chip installed. The HP Envy x360, meanwhile, sports a 15.6-inch display and is powered by either Intel or AMD processor.
HP announced another laptop a couple of weeks ago. The HP Elite x2 is a great alternative for the Surface Pro 4. In fact, the Elite x2 is described by some pundits as the Surface Pro 5 that everyone is waiting for. The upcoming 2-in- laptop will be powered by Intel Kaby Lake processors including the Core i7-76oo for the highest-end version.
All three new HP laptops will be available starting in June through the company's official website. The Envy 17 will start at a price of $999 while the Envy x360 15 starts at $899.99.
