HP has quietly upgraded the powerhouse 15.6" Envy 15 to 3rd generation Intel Ivy Bridge, and surprisingly, we've already got a 33 percent discount code plus free shipping. That means you can get the Core i5 version starting at $905 and the Core i7 starting at $972. Nice. The notebook is very powerful yet thin at 1.1" and lightweight for a 15.6" laptop. It competes with the Dell XPS 15z and the 15" MacBook Pro, but it's first to market with Ivy Bridge.
The Envy 15 has switchable graphics with dedicated AMD Radeon HD 7750M with 1 gig VRAM and Intel HD 4000 graphics. A 1080p HP Radiance display is optional, and the machine has HDMI, Display Ports, UBS 3.0 ports, a DVD burner and an 8 cell battery.
