All told, the lineup includes one convertible, the 15.6-inch Envy x360, and two clamshell notebooks, the Envy 15.6 and Envy 17.3. Starting with the 2-in-1, it has the same rotating hinge you'll find on HP's other x360 laptops, except this one is said to be 21 percent thinner than the last-gen model, at 18.8mm thick and 4.5 pounds. Under the hood, it runs a sixth-generation Intel Core i5 or i7 CPU with optional Intel Iris graphics, or a quad-core AMD FX 9800P processor with Radeon R7 graphics. Battery life is rated at up to 11 hours, up from eight in the previous generation. It will also be available with up to 16GB of RAM and single- and dual-disk options, including up to 2TB of HDD storage and up to a 256GB PCIe SSD. Weirdly, though, a 1080p display is an up-sell here, not the standard. Come on, HP.
The clamshell offerings have a similar design (minus the flexible hinge) and both are thinner than the models they're replacing. The 15-inch model in particular is 17.95mm (0.7 inches) thick and 4.4 pounds (half a pound lighter than last time), while the 17-incher comes in at 6.6 pounds and 25.45mm (about an inch) thick. Additionally, both have optional support for Windows Hello facial recognition, and both make use of HP's Fast Charge technology, which restores the battery to 90 percent in 90 minutes, with the machine powered off.
