Back toward the beginning of May, HP revealed a deluge of new Ultrabook products. Despite a rather confusing array of press releases and announcements, we waded through it all and found what many others missed — HP would be offering the Envy 4 and Envy 6 as not just Intel-powered Ultrabooks, but also as AMD-powered ultrathins. After quite a while, HP now has available the AMD Envy 6 Sleekbook for $699; can it compete with low priced Ivy Bridge Ultrabooks, and what about it’s twin, the Envy 6 Ultrabook?
Just last week, HP announced a slew of new computers at a press event in Shanghai (see all HP news). Among these new computers are four completely new Ultrabooks (the Folio 9470m, the Spectre XT, and the Envy 4 and 6), and and two ‘Sleekbooks’. HP is positioning each of these devices differently in terms of features, intended audience, and pricing. In this article, you’ll find a concise guide to HP’s latest Ultrabooks which will hopefully help to make sense of the differences and similarities — and you’ll find all known pricing and release date info.

We’ve been tracking the and Envy 6 for the last few weeks.

The AMD options push the prices down even further by giving up on some of the Ultrabook feature requirements. Starting at $599 for the cheapest Sleekbook, or $699 for the cheapest Ultrabook, these are value-packed systems!
The HP and Envy 6 are two new Ultrabook additions to the Envy series and it looks like they’ll be available for purchase soon. We were able to confirm initial leaked reports of the HP and Envy 6 last week by tracking down some leaked official documentation, and just recently the Envy 4 has sprung up for sale on HP’s Chinese site, giving us an indication of price and a confirmation of the leaked specs.
It hasn’t been long since HP officially launched the HP Folio 13 Ultrabook and the Envy Spectre 14 Ultrabook, but it seems that they’re already working on successors so these devices. Uncovered in a thread over at NotebookReview forum was some internal HP communiqué indicating two new additions to HP’s ‘EVNY’ line, the Envy 4, and Envy 6. Evidence thus far suggests that these two new models will be Ultrabooks, likely using the current-generation Sandy Bridge platform along with discrete graphics from AMD. Read the rest of this entry »
