HP has once again revamped its Envy laptop lineThis time, it’s about the people the company works with rather than the specs. Envy x360 is the headliner and the 15.6″ convertible PC that’s IMAX Enhanced certified. You can also watch movies on the OLED version (though only in 1080p). Disney+ movies DTS:X spatial sound allows you to hear the audio in a taller ratio. You can also expect exclusive HDR content remastered. However, we wouldn’t purchase a computer for the sole purpose of watching old movies.
HP’s latest models have other benefits, too. Envy x360’s 15.6″ and 14″ models both have the latest processors (13.6th-gen Intel Core and AMD Ryzen respectively) and improved webcams. Both also come with auto-lock/wake functions and manual privacy screens. The two-in-1 also comes with GeForce RTX 3150 graphics, compared to the RTX 2150 in the older model. RTX 4050 The battery life is up to 15-hours, compared to 10 hours for the predecessor. Both x360s have a maximum of 16GB RAM.
The Envy 17-inch (pictured middle) is the only conventional laptop that has been updated. It shares the camera, 13th Gen Core, and RTX graphics available with the x360 15.6-inch. Only a half hour of extra battery life (9 total) is available. But the optional 4K screen and 32GB of RAM should help you if your apps are heavy.
Envy’s 14-inch x360 is available now for $850. The Envy x360 15.6-inch will arrive before April’s end with an entry price of $950. Envy 17 starts at $1150 in May. These aren’t radical revisions, but the IMAX-certified laptop may be worth considering if you just have to watch the latest Marvel movies in the best-possible quality — so long as you don’t need 4K, at least.
