HP today unveiled a new luxury consumer sub-brand in South Africa. HP Envy combines precision-crafted design, leading-edge technology and superior support for a premium computing experience.
“HP created the Envy to be the technology of luxury, a technology for the design-conscious customers who crave high performance and settle for nothing less than the best, “says Yesh Surjoodeen, HP PSG category manager at HPSA.
Surjoodeen explains that the new brand complements HP’s existing consumer ranges, HP Pavilion and Compaq Presario, designed respectively for mainstream and cost-conscious customers. With Envy, HP focused on designing the whole experience, not just the product .
The HP Envy line includes leading-edge components optimised to yield power and performance. HP partnered with Beats Audio and Interscope artists to enable enjoyment of music the way they intended it; the audio profile is uniquely-tuned for Envy's exceptional audio hardware. Metal Etching on the magnesium case material provides a visual reminder of the luxury-level, performance and support. HP Clickpad integrates the buttons into the touchpad and allows for fluid movements, while enabling users to disable the right mouse key if desired.
The HP Envy 15 is HP’s fastest consumer notebook, with a magnesium casing providing lightweight durability in a less than 24mm thin and 2,4kg package.
It features the future Intel Core i7 processor, supporting up to 16Gb system memory, and an optional dual hard drive including SSD option for up to 500Gb.
Technology enthusiasts and gamers can take advantage of premium graphics performance via ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4830 discrete graphics for visually intensive applications, 1Gb of fast DDR3 video memory, DirectX10 games, HD video playback and an ultra-bright high-resolution (up to 1080p) display.
A Nightvision VGA webcam includes an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts to its surrounding and is optimised for lowlight or zero lighting conditions. The HP Envy has an optional Slim Fit Extended-Life Battery, giving users moer than seven hours of battery life.
