HP is going to release two new ultrabooks – the 15.6″ Envy 6 and 14″ Envy 4. For now, we have leaked specifications of the Envy 6. The Envy 4 is expected to have similar characteristics, with smaller screen as the main difference.
The HP ENVY 6-1001tx has been spotted by Notebook Review forum member ZuneNinja. The 0.78 inches thick and 4.7 pounds heavy ultrabook includes the Intel i5-2467M 1.6GHz “Sandy Bridge” processor, AMD Radeon HD 7670M 2GB DDR3 dedicated video card, 8GB RAM, and a 500GB mechanical hard drive paired with 32GB of mSATA solid state storage.
The screen is BrightView, meaning that it has glossy coating, and the resolution is disappointing 1366×768 pixels, but it is possible that the Envy 6 will be available with other screen options as well. Another weak point in the specs sheet is a 4-cell battery, which is very small, especially for the 15.6″ form factor. We will see if the notebook will come with other battery options, but it’s discouraging that the currently offered HP Spectre 14 ultrabook comes with a 4-cell unit, without other choices provided.
HP’s laptop doesn’t include an optical drive, but it delivers a full set of networking and connectivity features, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Ethernet LAN, two USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, and an SD card reader.
Judging from the leaked pictures, the laptop will have a brushed metal chassis in black color and a chiclet-style keyboard.
Availability date and pricing are unknown, but the HP Envy 6 and 4 are expected to be cheaper than the glass-cladded Spectre 14, which starts at $1,400.
