The HP Envy 13 and 15 are both housed in aluminum-and-black shells and drop the usual DVD drive to shed wieght and size.   Both also draw on Monster’s Beats PC audio to produce better built-in audio, have color accurate displays, and have a trackpad nicknamed the “clickpad” that hides the main button underneath the surface- ala the new Macbook Pros.

The Envy 15 heads up the pair of notebooks and is unique in having extremely high performance parts in a thin chassis; it is slightly over 5.1 pounds and under an inch thick.

It will support Intel’s new mobile Core i7 quad-core processors, handle up to 16GB of DDR3 memory, and comes with a 1GB Mobility Radeon HD 4830 for graphics processing. Certain processor combinations will also get as much as seven hours of battery life through an extended pack, and the drive bays allow for two SSD’s in a RAID 0 stripe for added speed. It should start from $1,799.

HP’s smaller model is aimed more at those who would consider a MacBook Pro 13. It just over 3.7 pounds and is 0.8 inches thick. It is powered by a low-power 1.86GHz Core 2 Duo S that gives it up to 7 hours of run time on the stock 9-cell battery but also has a dedicated Mobility Radeon HD 4330 for its graphics. It also comes twin 250GB HDs and between 3GB and 5GB of RAM. Price is $1,699.

Which Windows?

Both systems are due to ship on October 18th, just a few days before Windows 7. So will they ship with Windows 7 or Vista? Stay tuned to find out.
