HP has a few power-ups planned for the holiday that are worth getting excited about. Specifically, its newest 14-inch Chromebook will be getting a fancy Tegra K1 chip, and the Envy X2 detachable is going to get a serious powerboost from Intel’s Core M Broadwell.
HP’s Envy line of serious fun notebooks (as opposed to serious business, bleh!) have always been a bit on the tacky side. I hate to say it, but they looked like expensive toys. Now they’re grown up, in and out. (Updated with Australian pricing).
The HP Envy 15 isn’t my favourite laptop around, but if you buy one configured with both a Core i7 and ATI Radeon HD 5830, it’ll arrive loaded with USB 3.0. Oooooh! [CNET via Engadget]
