More Details About The New HP Envy Notebooks Emerge

Yesterday, HP announced the launch of a pair of new Envy laptops which might well be in the race for the sexiest laptops of 2010.

More details have emerged about the two laptops from third parties; trying to get more information about the specifications from HP has proved to be quite difficult.

We now know that the HP Envy 14 has a 1600x900 pixels display on a 14.5-inch diagonal, the same screen resolution as the Envy 17 except that the latter has a 17.3-3-inch one.

Both models can offer up to a quad-core Intel i7 processor and support 8GB DDR3 memory. Interestingly, the Envy 17 has two storage bays which can be kitted with two 1TB hard disk drives or a pair of 160GB SSDs.

The ENVY models will come with a pair of integrated microphones and a 1280x720 pixels webcam. The Envy 17 has as starting price of $1400 while the Envy $14 costs as little as $1000.

Interestingly, the bigger ENVY will come with an ATI Mobility Radeon 5850 with 1GB GDDR5 RAM and, surprise, a USB 3.0 port. Now, we said interesting because HP's Envy sees the quasi end of the VoodooPC line which HP purchased a few years ago.
