Tech firm HP has revealed new Envy laptops that offer plenty of power for a decent price.
While HP has also brought out the attention grabbing ultra-slim and jewellery Spectre 13.3 and called it the world’s slimmest notebook, the Envy range is more practical and costs less.
The models that have been revealed are updated Envy and Envy x360 laptops. They are thinner and lighter than previous models in the Envy laptops range and now have USB Type C ports added them as standard.
The new expanded line up of laptops from HP includes the convertible 15.6 inch Envy x360 and a couple of clamshell notebooks called the Envy 15.6 and Envy 17.3.
The convertible Envy laptop has the same of rotating hinge that is found on other x360 laptops from HP. The big difference is that the thickness has been greatly reduced. The new model is only 18.8 mm thick and weighs a tiny 4.5 pounds.
This x360 model has a 6th generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processor and gives up to 11 hours on the battery. It comes with 16GB of RAM and a maximum of 2TB of storage space.
The alternative, clamshell Envy laptops are similar to the x360 although they lack the hinge that makes the higher end model convertible. There are 15 and 17 inch models which are thin and powerful. Interestingly, when the device is switched off the HP Fast Charge technology boosts the battery up to 90% in just 90 minutes. The bigger of these laptops has an NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics processor and they offer up to 1TB of storage space.
