HP revamps Envy laptop line

New look, more power

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

HP has restyled its 15in and 17in Envy laptops, kitting them out in a "timeless design that includes an all-metal chassis with rounded edges in a classic black and silver finish".

Performance comes from quad-core Intel Core i7 CPUs, up to 16GB of DDR 3 memory, plus AMD Radeon HD discrete GPUs with 1GB of GDDR 5 video memory.

The 17in Envy can take two hard drives and a 128MB mSata SSD.

Both models have HDMI and DisplayPort output - two of the latter on the Envy 17 - plus the inevitable Beats Audio tech, this time with an analogue volume dial. There are a couple of USB 3.0 ports. The keyboard is backlit.

There's no word on international availability yet, but the two new Envies go on sale in the States on 7 December. The 15.6-incher kicks off at £1100 (£697) and the Envy 17 at $1250 (£793).

Update HP has just said the Envy 17 is expected to be available at the beginning of 2012 at a starting price of £1399. ®
