We can’t help it, we’re picky; while the HP ENVY 13 and ENVY 15 are all well and good, we still want an ENVY 14 and ENVY 17 to slot into the range. Rumors have circulated for some time now about just such machines, and some judicious digging over by the NotebookReview forum members has turned up a couple of support documents seemingly confirming the 14- and 17-inch variants.
A CVA file called “HP Support Assistant CVA documentation, SP47326” includes references to the ENVY 14 and ENVY 17, though of course beyond the product names there’s nothing so exciting as a spec list or release date. Previously we’ve speculated that HP could use Intel’s Core i5 processor line, slotting in-between the Core 2 Duo based ENVY 13 and the Core i7 based ENVY 15.
Meanwhile, the same digging has turned up another unannounced HP notebook, the HP Pavilion dm4, this time in some LightScribe documentation [CVA file]. The dm4 is believed to be a 14-inch machine with integrated optical drive, switchable graphics and a choice of Intel or AMD processors, and with an estimated price of $650-850.
