HP's Envy laptops pack longer battery life and AMD's new Bristol Ridge APU

Ian Paul | April 6, 2016
If your wallet isn't phat enough for the world's thinnest laptop from HP, the company also has some new modestly priced Envy laptops worth looking at.

The 15.6-inch model weighs in at 4.4 pounds and has a 0.71-inch profile. This unit also supports up to a Core i7 processor with integrated graphics. RAM tops out at 16GB, and like the x360, you can get a 1TB HDD and a 256GB PCIe SSD.

The 17.3-inch version, meanwhile, tips the scales at a whopping 6.6 pounds and is 1-inch thick. The larger laptop doesn’t have the dual storage options the two other Envy models, have settling for either a 1TB HDD or 512GB SATA SSD. But the larger laptop does offer models with an optical disk drive, as well as an optional Nvidia GeForce 940MX discrete graphics card.

Pricing and availability for all three laptops is a little complicated. The HP Envy x360 and 17.3-inch Envy laptop will hit HP.com on June 1, while BestBuy.com gets them on May 29. Those notebooks also come to Best Buy stores on June 12. Pricing at all locations starts at $680 for the x360 and $1030 for the regular laptop.

The 15.6-inch Envy comes to HP.com on May 25 and other retailers on June 12 with a starting price of $780.
