    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    * The ENVY 6 will be at least partially superseded by the ENVY Spectre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.
