HP regularly updates its Envy laptop series, equipping them with the latest processors and graphics, while making some improvements. In an effort to attract more commercials, the company is launching two new laptops that offer the choice of an upgraded 4K display, enhanced processing and graphics hardware, along with a separate wireless mouse that lets you work on multiple monitors.
From $ 1,000, the HP Envy 17 is more expensive of the two newcomers. As the name suggests, it has a 17.3-inch screen with full HD screen resolution. Inside is an 11th generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processor combined with Intel Iris X graphics, 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of internal storage. The laptop has a seashell design (the reversible hinges have been reserved for smaller siblings), slim frames and a screen-to-body ratio of 86.3 percent. If you̵
The HP x360 15, on the other hand, starts at $ 750 for the AMD-based model and $ 900 for the Intel-based version. It weighs 1.8 kg – slightly smaller than its 2.5 kg counterpart – and has a 2-in-1 portable design that allows you to use it as a touch screen. With that in mind, HP offers a 4K OLED model that should be good for video streaming and gaming. The X360 15 is available with an AMD Ryzen 7 or an 11th generation Intel Core processor and packs NVIDIA MX450 graphics. Both of the new devices also have a 19 percent larger touchpad and a new feature called Enhanced Lightning, which essentially turns the screen into a built-in selfie light for video calls.
You can pre-order the new Envy devices from the HP Store or Best Buy, with delivery starting in April. In addition to the new laptops, HP will also launch a new HP 930 Creator Wireless Mouse later this spring that works on up to three devices simultaneously via USB-A or Bluetooth dongles. The $ 90 mouse comes with seven programmable buttons, a scroll wheel and apparently lasts up to 12 weeks on a single charge.
