    Word! And for everybody looking for a ultraportable thing, there are many many threads discussing those. (btw, I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, which is very portable and less powerful - the tradeoff someone has to make)
    The Envy 15 will not shrink, as much as some might want that

    Soooooo - any news? ^^

    trade offs, it's not an issue of good battery life and no battery life.

    What is the % battery life improvement of ivy bridge? It won't double battery life, so what will the increase be?

    20%?
    30%?

    if the current dec 7 envy can last 5-7 hours on a charge, let's take a high estimate of 30% more battery life.

    6.5-9.1 hours instead of 5-7 hours.


    is that enough of a jump to wait 4-6 months for an ivy bridge envy? Not to me. Anything above 5 hours on a change is above my minimal threshold, I could even live with a bit less, so my standards are met. But then I don't get too anal about not having the absolute best in class performing spec every second of every moment. I ask myself can I live with the performance and battery life a certain product brings for a year or more? If the answer is yes, I don't go stress and worry that in another 4 months I'll get an incremental boost.

    I don't even think the CPU equals 100% of a laptop battery life. Maybe 30to-40% at best if you account for the screen and everything else...
    So the improvement should be 30% of 30%... that means 9% extra battery life at best ?
    And if someone knows, will it really consume less if it's actually clocked higher ? Or will it consume less even if the energy saving mode set TDP is at 5w on both sandy and ivy bridge for example ?

    Yes I am looking at this and the 15.6 inch Chronos. Come on wednesday! Even with the rumored poor GPU in the new Envy, it should still preform favorably to the 6750m correct?

    At 1080p I don't think so.
    I'd basically forget this laptop for any serious gaming if you take the 1080p radiance screen instead of the lower res brightview.
    By the way on the swedish HP website the new envy 17s are listed.
    750 go x2 with radiance 1080p 8 gigs blu-ray = about 2228 USD http://h41112.www4.hp.com/promo/home...erience=direct
    750 go x1 with brightview display 6 gigs dvd = about 1708 USD http://h41112.www4.hp.com/promo/home...erience=direct
    1 tb x2 with brightview 3D 120hz 8gigs blu-ray = 2 524 USD http://h41112.www4.hp.com/promo/home...erience=direct
    CPU (i7) and the rest are the same.

    So 2 gigs + bluray + radiance upgrade = 500$ ? Rofl HP.

    The 7690M better not be the highest end card available for the Envy 17.
    MSI GT70-2OD | i7-4700MQ | GTX 780M | 12GB 1600MHz RAM | Crucial M500 960GB SSD | 1TB 5400rpm HDD | Blu-ray | Windows 8

    I have a question for those of you who are already complaining about the new Envy. What are the alternatives?

    For me the alternative is the samsung series seven. Both are thin powerful 15.6 laptops. I will be ordering Wednesday whichever has more bang for the buck. Both seem well built and well designed.
    Additionally this new gpu better preform better than the 6750m otherwise it will have a worse cpu and gpu then the samsung.
