HP announces all new ENVY Notebook 13 with 7th-gen Intel processors

HP is bringing its revamped ENVY Notebook 13 to the market later this month featuring Intel's latest Core i 'Kaby Lake' processors.

The powerful 13.3-inch notebooks still maintain their thinness (13.94mm) but gain a bigger battery (57.8 Whr versus 45) and a refined design for late 2016. The new ENVY also features a unique 'lift hinge' design where the back edge of the display props the device up slightly allowing more ventilation. There is also a full-sized backlit keyboard with 1.3mm travel, large glass trackpad, dual front firing speakers, and up to 16GB of RAM.

For displays, you are looking at two options at 13.3 inches: Full HD (non-touch) and QHD + IPS with touch featuring an impressive 72% color gamut.

The ENVY Notebook 13 will be available with either a Core i5 or Core i7 processor and up to 1TB PCIe for storage.
