    These don't look to good. The Envy looks like a pavilion, and the new pavilion looks like a budget compaq.

    I'm getting the feeling HP are push their models down the line this year, and trying to hold on to their pricing by using the branding name of the models.

    So no new Envy 15's any more?

    I was really hoping for something with dual SSDs, i7-3820QM and a GPU along the lines of Nvidia 650m, 660m or AMD 7770m, 7850m

    Yes, most likely they will be refreshed for the upcoming holiday season. I am guessing no real cosmetic changes only internal, upgraded Ivy Bridge processors, Graphics cards and SSD's possibly.

    Is the Spectre line going to include a 17 inch? If so and if it's the new top line how are they going to separate it from the Envy and Pavilion's 17 inch? I would like to see it not include a DVD drive so it will be thinner and upgrade the display higher then 1080p, include Thunderbolt ports and USB 3.0 ports.

    Although if they do that they will have a lot of notebook lines IMO, I mean the Spectre, Envy, Pavilion and the g-series budget notebooks.

    There is no longer a standalone G-series lineup; the g4, g6, and g7 series are currently under Pavilion.

    The main lineup for this fall is looking like this at the moment:

    HP ENVY
    • m4-10XX
    • m6-11XX
    • dv4-52XX
    • dv6-72XX
    • dv7-72XX
    • ENVY x2 11-gXXX
    • ENVY 4-11XX Ultrabook / Sleekbook (TouchSmart)
    • ENVY 6-1XXX/bXXX*
    • ENVY 13-2XXX Spectre<sup>XT</sup>
    • ENVY 14-3XXX Spectre**
    • ENVY 15-32XX**
    • ENVY Spectre<sup>XT</sup> TouchSmart (numbering is currently unknown)
    • ENVY 17-32XX**

    HP Pavilion
    • g4-22XX
    • g6-22XX
    • g7-22XX
    • Pavilion Ultrabook 14
    • Pavilion Sleekbook 14-bXXX
    • Pavilion Sleekbook 15-bXXX

    Compaq
    • Presario CQ45-7XX
    • Presario CQ58-1XX/aXX

    * The ENVY 6 will be at least partially superseded by the ENVY Spectre<sup>XT</sup> TouchSmart. I think these two lineups will co-exist, though.

    ** Although this isn't confirmed, the ENVY 14-3XXX Spectre, ENVY 15-30XX/32XX, and ENVY 17-30XX/32XX will likely be discontinued or phased out soon. (I was at a Fry's Electronics store today and the ENVY 17-3290nr already had the red discontinued tag! :eek:)

    Makes sense, the Envy 15/17 and DV6/7 have the same target audience with both of them being multimedia laptops. So they're consolidating the two. Sad that they decided to remove the Envy instead of the DV.

    Thanks, for the information.

    I wonder if they do discontinue the Envy 17-30XX/32XX series will they have a Spectre 17 inch?

    In other news, Ford quit making all Lincoln luxury cars, but will be renaming everything from the Ford Focus to the Ford Escape to the Ford F-150 the "Lincoln Focus," "Lincoln Escape," and "Lincoln F-150." Because that's just as good as having a dedicated line of premium products, right?

    Seriously, what the heck?

    Hey everyone,

    Although the CTO models are not available just yet, the pre-configured ENVY dv4, ENVY dv6, and ENVY dv7 are now available to purchase on the HP website.

    Here are a few of them:

    dv4-5220us

    Besides the Windows 8 OS and Intel Core i7-3630QM (3.4 GHz Turbo / 2.4 GHz) processor option, everything else about these notebooks are the same compared to their Windows 7-based Pavilion equivalents.

    They look absolutely stunning!!!!

    YESSSS!!!!

    When will the CTO option be available?

    And do we know whether the screen on the Envy dv7 is the same high quality as the one in the Envy 17 3D?

    I'm hoping so. I see that its Full HD but I know the 3D display supposedly has a better screen.

    Let's hope they reworked the cooling system to be more like the Envy 17 3200 version with two fan systems instead of the existing one for the dv7 with just a single fan system.

    The Envy dv6 and dv7 CTO is available now:

    dv6: HP ENVY dv6t-7200 Quad Edition Notebook PC | HP® Official Store

    dv7: HP ENVY dv7t-7200 Quad Edition Notebook PC | HP® Official Store

    Only thing that has changed is the name, slightly faster processor options and OS is now Windows 8, no option to "downgrade" to Win 7.

    Not only that but also:

    1. No option to configure an mSSD on the envy dv6 (not sure about the dv7, didn't try it)

    2. No option for recovery discs (don't know if this is related to the OS, Windows 8).

    3. Fewer hard drive options in the envy dv6, just 1TB 5400rpm drive and 750GB 7200rpm hybrid drive with HP Protectsmart.

    Looking for a laptop with the Pavilion/Envy dv6's specs but with a touchscreen. Closest I've seen is the ASUS Zenbook U500vz but the price is kinda high and it loses some features.

    #sigh Now I'm gonna wait and see what crops up but still got the Envy dv6 as 1st choice, the minute I see a good deal on it, I'll snap it up.
