At a recently held event, HP pulled the covers off of two new mid range Envy laptops. Both these laptops offer a sleek and slim look with a metal body. Not only that, both these devices also offer premium specs with a very interesting edge to edge display. Let’s know more about these 2 devices.
The two laptops are both of different sizes at 15.6” and 17.3” displays measuring diagonally. If you are on the move a lot and want a laptop for the same purpose, the smaller one is the obvious choice. Both these laptops are also a major upgrade as they measure half pounds less each than their predecessors.
The slim detail and the light size are not the only factors that make these laptops ideal for carrying with yourself on the move. HP’s fast charge feature lets you charge the laptop to an impressive in just an hour and a half with the laptop turned off. The battery fully charged is claimed to last 11 hours, which again is proof enough to state the actual purpose of these laptops. Both come running on the Intel i7 processor and Windows Hello support.
Here are the main differences between the two laptops:
- The smaller laptop is powered by the UMA or Intel Iris graphics laptop while the its larger brother comes with the NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics.
- Optical disk drive is only present in the larger 17.3” laptop while it is absent from the smaller laptop.
- The smaller laptop comes with the HD IR camera while an Intel RealSense camera is present on the larger laptop.
- The last difference between them is about their dimensions and weight. The smaller one weighs 4.4 pounds and measures 17.95 mm thick whereas the larger one tips the scales at 6.6 pounds mm and is 25.45 mm thick.
The smaller laptop will be available on HP’s website from 25th May for a price of $779.99 and will then be also available through retailers from June 12th. The bigger one on the other hand will be available through Best Buy on May 29th and will then be available through HP on June 1st. The larges one will set you back by $1029.99.
So planning on getting one of these? You will have to sell MacBook that you own or any other laptop as the price tag for these is not exactly budget.
