HP Envy 15 2020 design – What will it look like?
The design of the HP Envy 15 sticks to the same formula it’s had for several years – a sleek all-silver body that still manages to pack in a graphical punch.
The HP Envy 15 is by no means light – weighing in at around 2.1kg – but it looks far more office-friendly and refined than some competitors. The dimensions come in at 358 x 237 x 18.5mm, sitting in between the thickness of the new Razer Blade 15 2020 Base and Advanced Models while having a slightly larger surface area.
The new laptop is well equipped in the ports department, coming with two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports, one USB-A (HP Sleep and Charge), one USB-A, a headphone jack, an HDMI 2.0 port and a microSD card reader.
Aside from the Envy 15, there’s a ton of variations to dig your teeth into as well. HP’s lineup includes the Envy 13, Envy x360 13, Envy x360 15 and Envy 17. The convertible x360 models are particularly intriguing, with both offering AMD’s new Ryzen 4000 processor (the 15-inch also comes with an Intel option).
