HP brings glamor to its netbooks, rolls out Envy 13 and Envy 15
This is exactly what it takes to get pursed lips to first gape, then air-kiss in the hope of being forgiven for their cynicism. And then grovel to be given a chance to lay their hands on something as gorgeous as the HP Envy 13.
Reed thin (0.8-inch thickness), absolutely dependable (18 hours battery life) and beautiful (3.74 pounds weight) is how you could identify this show-stopper announced by HP. The details are just as interesting too - the HP Envy 13 carries a 13.1-inch WXGA display with superior color (82% color gamut) and brightness (410 nit). The possibility of an 18-hour battery life is on account of an optional Slim Fit battery that can fit unobtrusively to bottom of the laptop and effortlessly extend the standard 7 hours battery life. Throw in an Intel Core 2 Duo 1.86GHz chip, 3GB of RAM and a 512MB ATI Mobile Radeon HD graphics card and you will realize that this stunner is more than just skin deep.
And then there is the sibling - the HP Envy 15 - that makes a much quieter, but a noticeable entry nevertheless. The Envy 15 comes with a 15.6-inch LCD display, Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM and high-end Radeon HD 4830 graphics card. Which makes it a little heavier with the 1-inch thickness and 5.18 pounds weight, but hey, it makes big brother sturdier too. The Envy 13 is priced at $1,699 and the Envy 15 at $1,799. Both the laptops come with Windows 7 pre-loaded.
Bouncing off the walls is all you can do until October 18th when you can get a step closer to the awesome twosome.
