HP has been putting extra time in the design room. Anything look familiar? The latest HP laptops have a distinct “appley” type of feel to them. I guess if you can’t beat them you might as well trick customers into buying something that looks like one.
The HP Envy is getting a screen upgrade. Gone is the 13″ and the 14″ and 17″ are ushered in. Top end models are equipped with an Intel i7 and ATI Radeon 5850 and at least 1TB of data storage. The video card alone might be enough to get some gamers to switch brand loyalties. Expect to pay top dollar, prices start at $1,400 for the 17″ model. Time to get a Mac -er an HP laptop.
The HP Pavilion dv6 lineup gets some changes too. A touchscreen. 15.6″ screen, lower end models equipped with AMD cpus while everyone else who’s willing to spend more money get the Intel goodness. Aluminum finish, fingerprint swiper, blah blah blah, go visit HP’s site if you’re really interested.
