If there's one thing we took away from our jaunt at CES, it's this: consumers' appetites for mainstream laptops haven't waned all that much. Even in the Ultrabook category, Intel expects half of the models to go on sale this year will have 14- and 15-inch screens -- as strong an indicator as any th

We know that you really had your heart set on that 14-inch Envy, but until they finally arrive from Shangri-La, the \"mystical, harmonious valley, gently guided from a lamasery, enclosed in the western end of the Kunlun Mountains\" (the same place whose Apple Stores stock the iPhone nano, incidentall

There's no getting around it, so we'll just say right at the outset: HP's new ENVY 13 and 15 laptops might've been built on the \"Voodoo ENVY legacy,\" but they sure look a lot like Apple's unibody MacBook Pros. Of course, there's much more than meets the eye. The ENVY 13 is a bit of a mix between a
