HP updates its Envy laptop line on a regular basis, adding the latest processors and graphics while also making minor changes. In order to appeal to more creatives, the company is announcing two new laptops with a 4K touchscreen, better processing, and graphics hardware, and a separate wireless mouse that allows you to work across several screens.
The HP Envy 17 is the more expensive of the two entrants, starting at $1,000. It has a 17.3-inch screen with a full HD display resolution, as the name indicates. Inside is an Intel Core i7 quad-core CPU with Intel Iris X graphics, 12GB of RAM, and 512GB of internal storage from the 11th generation.
The laptop has a clamshell construction, slender bezels, and an 86.3 percent screen-to-body ratio (reversible hinges are reserved for its smaller sibling). Upgrade to 1TB PCIe SSD storage, 32GB memory, and a 4K touchscreen if you want anything more powerful.
On the other hand, the HP x360 15 starts at $750 for AMD-based models and $900 for Intel-based models. It weighs 1.8kg, which is slightly less than its 2.5kg counterpart and features a 2-in-1 notebook design with a touchscreen tablet mode.
In light of this, HP has introduced a 4K OLED model that should be ideal for video streaming and gaming. The x360 15 comes with AMD Ryzen 7 or Intel Core 11th Gen processors, as well as NVIDIA MX450 graphics. Both smartphones have a 19 percent bigger touchpad, as well as a new feature called Enhanced Lightning, which transforms the display into a built-in selfie light for video calls.
