Following the launch of the HP Dragonfly Professional, HP is now launching much more laptops geared at freelancers. At the moment, it introduced a collection of Envy-branded laptops, together with the Envy x360 14-inch 2-in-1, the Envy x360 15.6-inch 2-in-1, and the Envy 17.3-inch Laptop computer, which it’s pitching as a combination between work and private machines.
Laptop producers have been making claims about how folks combine private and work machines for years. (Whether or not that is a sensible thought on an enterprise machine is one other story. For freelancers, it makes extra sense). However what’s maybe extra attention-grabbing right here is that a type of machines is the primary ever to be IMAX.
What do the IMAX Enhanced certification and freelancing have in widespread? Not quite a bit! However it’s an attention-grabbing certification that is out there on sure configurations to the HP Envy x360 15.6-inch 2-in-1. The certification contains utilizing a variant of DTS:X expertise to get an IMAX-style theatrical combine. It additionally permits for IMAX’s expanded side ratio, although companies like Disney Plus have been providing that on every kind of units for some time now. Notably, materials equipped to the press in regards to the certification says a Disney Plus subscription is required. Regardless, it’s onerous to imagine any laptop computer goes to supply an expertise akin to IMAX, except HP has someway discovered a method to shrink its clients all the way down to the dimensions of an insect.
The brand new units are all utilizing 5 megapixel webcams, and all however the 14-inch 2-in-1 can even get IR cameras. (Oddly sufficient, the previous 13.3-inch 2-in-1 had an IR digital camera. It has been changed right here with a fingerprint reader.)
The HP Envy x360 14 will go as much as an Intel Core i7-1355U, 16GB of DDR5-3200 RAM, and 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD with a 1080p show. The 15.6-incher could have each Intel Core and AMD Ryzen choices, however solely the Intel model could have an non-compulsory NVidia GeForce RTX 3050 GPU. These even have 1080p displaysand additionally declare IMAX certification. (I am fairly stunned IMAX does not require greater decision than that, however right here we’re).
Lastly, the HP Envy 17.3-inch laptop computer will use both a Core i7-1355U, Core i5-13500H or Core i7-13700H. Graphics go as much as an RTX 3050, with as much as 32GB of DDR5 RAM and 1TB of PCIe SSD storage. The 17-inch show is available in 1080 or 4K resolutions.
The 14-inch Envy x360 is obtainable right this moment on HP’s web site beginning at $849.99. The 15-inch 2-in-1 is predicted to launch later this month, starting at $949.99 for AMD Ryzen R5 and Intel Core i5 ($1,199.99 for i7 and R7), whereas the 17-inch laptop computer will begin at $1,149 and ship in Might.
