HP today announced new ENVY 15 and ENVY 17 laptops at the 2014 Computex show in Taipei.  There are still no live demonstrations or pictures to show, but we do have a better idea of the specs on these machines which will essentially be a refresh of the current ENVY 15-j1000 and ENVY 17-j1000.  Each model will offer Full HD 1920×1080 screens with optional touch feature, Intel Core i5 or i7 4th generation processors such as the Core i7-4710HQ processor, up to Nvidia GTX 850M graphics, max of 16GB of RAM and a 1.5TB Hard Drive.   The look will be much the same as the current ENVY 15 and 17 models (pictured below), HP only described them as having a metal finish and premium look and feel, which could describe just about any laptop these days!  We should hear more from HP regarding the ENVY 15-KXXX and ENVY-17-KXXX models in the coming days at Computex.
