HP has announced official specs for the latest additions to its Envy line and is said to be phasing out the Envy 13, replacing it with the newly announced Envy 14 (pictured). The Envy 14 and Envy 17 come with ATI Mobility Radeon discrete graphics and options for Intel's Core i3, i5 and i7 processors. They have matching aluminum cases with backlit keyboards and come with HD webcams and Beats by Dr Dre Audio. The Envy 17 is a little more extravagant packing support for ATI's multi-display Eyefinity technology, up to 2 TB of storage and the option for Blu-ray.
The most surprising thing about the Envy 14 is that despite being bigger and more up to date than the notebook it's replacing, it's actually quite a bit cheaper; the 14 starts at $999, $400 less than the Envy 13's $1,399 pricetag. The Envy 17 will start at $1,399 and will be available May 26 in the US. The Envy 14 will hit shelves a little bit later, on June 27.
Beats by Dr Dre? They're still trying to get people to care about that?
If they can get it to have ~6 hours of battery life at moderate use that would be a laptop i'd consider buying if i was looking for a 14 inch.
This 14 inch one looks awesome...probably going to end up buying it when it comes out.
Sadly no, all commenting whoring will get you is us saying, "Hey this guy has been commenting loads lately ... "
do you have any links to provide? I'd be very interested to compare. I've been looking over for a well-constructed laptop for some time now. I can't stand those plasticky, bending feels. the only ones that seems well constructed to me (that I've seen and felt in stores) are the macs, lenovo, and HP envy
