Unboxing Photos of the HP Envy 15

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Articles & Resources" @ 06:00 AM

"As configured, the HP Envy 15 is the most powerful five pound notebook on the market. As you can see in the image below, this envy 15 comes with an Intel Core i7-720QM processor, dual 160GB solid state drives, 16GB of DDR3 RAM and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4830 graphics with 1GB of deicated graphics memory."

I'm eyeing the HP Envy 15 for my next laptop - my XPS M1330 is starting to feel a little aged, though it still stacks up nicely against most other notebooks in the spec department - so I'm eager to read everything I can about the Envy 15. It blends the opposing traits of a powerful CPU with great battery life by including the battery slice in the box, which is excellent - it's one less thing to buy. I've seen the Envy 15 in person and there are two things I'm iffy on: the 1920 x 1080 resolution is really high for a 15.6 inch screen, and I'm not sure if bumping font sizes (or the DPI) would be enough to make it workable. The second thing is HP, for some bizarre reason, went with a very "girly" floral-style pattern on the lid. I hate the way it looks, so I'd be looking to slap a decal from DecalGirl on there right away...which seems ridiculous to me. I'm not aware of any other laptops out there that have the Core i7 mobile CPU but still manage decent battery life...any suggestions?

"One lucky Notebooks.com reader will get to unwrap an HP Envy 15 on October 22. That's right, we're giving one of these bad boys away and you have a chance to win it. Wouldn't you rather spend the day playing with one of the most powerful notebooks on the market than waiting in line to buy Windows 7?"

A 15 inch screen at 1080p? Intel Core i7 processor, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB 7200 RPM hard drive? ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4830 GPU? Wow...what's not to love? Full contest details are over at Notebooks.com, though be aware this contest is US-only.

HP Envy 15 Beats Limited Edition

I can't seem to find any information about the pricing on this Beats limited edition version of the HP Envy 15, but I have a hunch it will come at a slight premium - made less painful by the fact that this version of the Envy 15 doesn't come with the Core i7 CPU...it features an Intel Quad Core CPU instead. CPU aside, I love the black finish on this notebook...it looks slick!


HP Envy 15 Walkthrough Video from Notebooks.com

Curious about the new HP Envy 15? Xavier got some hands-on time with the Envy 15, and this video is a walkthrough with HP's Kevin Wentzel. Am I the only one who's feeling very "iffy" about the design on the lid? I thought it was originally going to be a design-free lid, which I thought was a great idea...but looking at the unit in this video, I see a very busy design that frankly really detracts from the overall aesthetic of the very clean design. What do you think?
