HP Launches Ryzen Based Envy x360 and Notebooks

HP is updating its Envy laptop lineup with a set of new laptops and convertibles for buyers in every price and performance bracket. Here are the major products that were unveiled.

HP Envy x360 13, 15

The long-present convertible is getting an upgrade with better internals and is available again in 13 and 15-inch versions. The display comes with 1920 x 1080 resolution (UHD 3840 x 2160 optional) and Corning Gorilla Glass protection. There’s also optional Sure View mode to reduce the degree of angle to keep peeping toms at bay.

Under the hood, you get AMD’s Ryzen 5 2500U and 2700U processors under the hood, with Radeon Vega 8 or Vega 10 graphics as well as 8 GB RAM for the x360 13.

For the x360 15, you get both of the aforementioned Ryzen options alongside Core i5 and Core i7.

Storage is taken care of through a 128/256 GB SSD on the AMD variants of both 13 and 15. The Intel model also gets an optional SSD on the Envy x360 15.

For security, there’ll be optional 1080p IR webcams as well as a fingerprint scanner. Battery life is rated at 11 hours on a single charge on the x360 13, or 12 hours 45 minutes on the x360 15.

Pricing starts at $760 for the x360 13, or either $750 (AMD) or $870 (Intel) for the x360 15.

The laptops come with a Command Center application, which makes the convertible even quieter if you want silence during, say, watching a movie. The laptops will be available in either Black or Silver.

Envy 13 and 17

Among the more traditionally-suited options are the Envy 13 and 17 laptops, which don’t come with a detachable display. They are available in larger 13 and 17-inch options, with 1080p resolution on the base models with the option of UHD.

Under the hood, you get the new Intel Core i7-8550U CPU, with 8 GB RAM and a 256 GB SSD, on the Envy 13. The Envy 17 ups that to a GeForce MX150 with 2 GB VRAM, with the RAM option going all the way to 12 GB RAM, and storage to 1 TB 7200rpm along with an optional SSD.

Connectivity options include USB-C and USB 3.0 on the Envy 13, with the larger model also coming with HDMI 2.0 and a CD/DVD Drive. There’s also the option of Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.2 and optional Gigabit Wi-Fi.

Pricing starts at $999.99 for the Envy 13 or $1049.99 for the Envy 17.
