HP Envy 13 and 15 becomes official

HP has just announced their new line of premium laptops — the HP Envy 13 and Envy 15. What’s surprising is that the Envy 15 already has a 1.6GHz Intel Core i7-720QM CPU in it (even before Intel announced the ship).

Weighs just 1.7kg or 3.74lbs which is very near the weight of a number of 11-incher ultraportables out there (Acer Timeline and Gateway). This model is under an inch thin (2.05 cm).The trackpads are made out of glass too (with multi-touch support). Made of pure-grade aluminum chassis and a magnesium alloy bottom to make it lighter for its size.

The 6-cell battery can last up to 7 hours but could ramp it up to 18 hours (I’m curious what battery they’re using for this to reach 18 hours). Retails for $1,699 when it comes out this October.

    I envy… envy anyone who can purchase the HP ENVY if the conversion of dollar to peso is correct (S1,699.oo x P48.oo) then I guess I should just get an Apple laptop or a 15″ Laptop that would cause less than that OMG :p

    Envy’s were from Voodoo PC and meant to be high end laptops for their design, like really expensive but really cool designs and branded. Now they’re HP, somehow I feel the premium brand is gone when you brand it under HP. Not to mention the color and tatoo choices you could get. Oh well just go get a cheaper laptop from a cheaper retailer, brand is just brand :)

    Guys I found pobox.ph as the solution for your US Online Shopping. They could purchase from US Online Stores and have them shipped to your doorstep. You could pay them via bank deposit in dollars or in pesos and even via paypal. This is my first time to transact with them and I ordered from the US Apple Store, Amazon and NewEgg.com. Just give the link to them and they will send you the quoation and after they received your payment they will purchase your item. Once all your items have arrived to their warehouse you could opt to ship it to the Philippines. It takes about 3-4 weeks for you to receive you box from US to Philippines.

    to achieve the 18 hours you have to install a battery slice on the base siguro.

    i believe this is the first laptop using core i7 mobile? if it is then it’s wayy better than a macbook in terms of performance.

    kapresyo nya macbook but if apple release a macbook with core i7, the price will jump much higher.

    Finally a laptop brandishing one of the cardinal sins. Well, there are still 6 remaining. HP must be going somewhere with this. Expect another model named Greed, Gluttony – or something in the near future.

  9. madzman23 says:

    Wow, suweeeeeeet but expensive…

  10. Dx says:

    OMG! :D you said i7? now I’m having doubt getting an MBP :(

  11. Karl Mac says:

    copy cat…

  12. josengsisiW says:

    There are some laptops with higher specs and costs less than $1000. Not an ENVY at all.

  13. Reuben says:

    Ooh, so sexy, so sexy.

  14. Jazon says:

    Mac4Lin would look great in that!

  15. cheng says:

    my optical drive po b 2?

  16. Jhay says:

    It certainly looks a lot like a MacBook. ;)

    Oh and the price too!

  17. kaye says:

    maganda kaya lang ang mahal

    i would go for acer aspire timeline 4810T

  18. creepy.chan says:

    Sir Abe I hope you also feature the upcoming HP Pavilion DM3

  19. Flores says:

    Nice look for this one, since usually HP laptops are not as beautiful as Apple or Sony. Somehow, 1,700 dollars a.k.a. 81.000 pesos, simply too expensive. I can buy Acer laptop with the same specs but just 66.000 pesos. GBU all!

  21. Another disadvantage to van leasing is that it can be difficult to calculate the annual mileage and other charges. A leased van has a set number of miles that can be accumulated on it. If the number of miles exceeds this number, the charges can be quite costly. To avoid this, it is important to accurately calculate the mileage that one does in a year. Miscalculating this can lead to heavy charges that the individual or company leasing the van was not expecting. Other charges that may be included in a lease is that the individual will have to pay for any damages to the vehicle. Although this would probably be the case should the person own the van outright, there may be some minor damages that the individual would not bother in fixing if the van were their own property?

    Wow. Pat on the back to HP for making a copy cat of the Macbook Pros – the catch is it doesn’t look as good, has a slower processor, AND it costs more. Brilliant job HP. HA!

  23. arn says:

    its a quadcore laptop! wuhoo!

  24. Selling my HP Envy 15. Brand new, purchased 2nd week of November. Needs urgent cash for my hospitalization. Unit is complete with Official Receipt. Contact me at 09196141414

  25. John Carl says:

    It’s basically a laptop for premium fashion and design.

    Instead of bragging about an HP Envy, I’d be better off with a Mac. :P
