09/19/2013, We’ve been impressed by HP’s Spectre line up for a while, and this new Spectre 13.3” Ultrabook keeps the flame alive and well. At around 3lbs, it is constructed out of aluminum and feels very high quality when you hold it. For reference, I think that it feels sensibly better than my Macbook Air 13, which is probably the other aluminum design that most people know about.
09/19/2013, HP is the first computer maker to integrate the Leap Motion sensing technology in a laptop. Previously, it was available as an external USB device. The integrated version of Leap Motion is much sleeker and offers a more reliable and consistent interaction, due to the fixed position of the sensor in relation to the screen. At first, it may seem weird that the sensor is off-centered on the right, but […]
09/05/2013, All-In-One (AiO) PCs tend to be the new trend these days for those who want something that is purely functional without taking up too much space. Of course, gamers would avoid AiO PCs like the plague simply because they do not come with the kind of hardware firepower required to churn out those high resolution framerates. Having said that, HP has announced a trio of AiO PCs in the form […]

01/06/2013, [CES 2013] At CES 2013 HP is launching a new 27″ LCD IPS monitor under the Envy brand. The HP Envy 27″ display has been designed to look good on a desk, and one of the primary objectives of the designers was to make the bezels very thin. It’s hard to see on the photos, but if you’re not familiar with the IPS display technology, it is a type of […]
09/18/2012, Budget laptops, in general, used to be clunky hunks of plastic, more three-dimensional than thin, a collection of loosely grouped computer parts. Because of the recent Ultrabook (Intel’s thin-and-fast laptop) craze, even mid-to-low range computers sport a durable, solid build. In order to bill a computer as an ultrabook, manufacturers have to place a strong emphasis on maximizing the space and efficiency of laptop internals. The Envy 4 isn’t Macbook […]
05/08/2012, HP is launching the latest additions to its ENVY lineup in the thin category, namely the HP ENVY Ultrabook and the HP ENVY Sleekbook . Both series offer very similar configurations, and since the Ultrabooks have to be powered only by Intel processors and are required to meet Intel’s specifications, HP had to categorize the rest of its ultra-thin offering under another brand name: Sleekbook. The ENVY Sleekbook 14” is powered by […]

01/09/2012, [CES 2012] 2012 is the year of the ultrabook, with Intel and HP leading the way. With tablets competing against mobile computer and offering sleek bodies with enough power to get by the day without recharging, the PC manufacturers have to put more effort in the industrial design than ever. I am very happy to discover several awesomely designed devices at CES this year, such as the Toshiba Excite […]
12/21/2011, Whenever a device arrives at the FCC, it can only mean one thing – said piece of hardware is fishing for an approval before it is unleashed upon the masses. Today, we see the HP Envy 14 Spectre arrive at the hallowed corridors of the FCC, waiting to jump through all the hoops and perform various tricks before the folks at the FCC are satisfied with its performance to give […]
11/15/2011, HP high-end notebook lineup will get three new models, the HP ENVY 15, HP ENVY 17 and HP ENVY 17 3D. The ENVY series was launched the first time in 2009 as a line of elegant and powerful notebooks to compete with the MacBook Pro. I can say that since then, I am impressed by the progress the HP team has made on the design of each generation, by […]
01/03/2011, [CES 2011] HP is launching only one new laptop at CES, and for the rest, the number one PC manufacturer in the world is mostly updating existing products with the Intel Core processor second generation. The Envy 17, first introduced in May, now gets the HP CoolSense technology and the new Intel Core processor with multi-core Turbo Boost. AMD switchable graphics technology allows to dynamically switch from integrated graphics to […]
01/03/2011, While iOS, Android and Windows Phone 7 might be the popular operating systems today, there’s nothing stopping you from dreaming about something new. Designers out there have come up with the Envy 4G concept phone that is powered by the MasterMobile OS, which looks something like what a marriage of Windows Phone 7 and iOS would produce. It’s powered by a Carbon chip that features a CPU and GPU bundled […]
12/29/2010, Turns out that Dell isn’t the only company out there that is slashing the prices of its slim notebooks. Next up we’ve caught wind that HP has joined the fun by offering a $450 instant-rebate on its Envy 13, meaning you’ll only need to part with $999 in order to own this notebook. For your money, you get components such as a 13-inch display, 1.6GHz processor, 3GB of DDR3 RAM, […]
