Laptops for creative people: HP ENVY x360 15 and 17 with color calibration and portrait light


HP has presented two new notebooks in its ENVY series, which are available in different equipment variants, are made from sustainable materials and whose displays are color-calibrated at the factory. They are equipped with the latest processors and the fastest interfaces such as Thunderbolt 4 with USB4 as well as Wi-Fi 6 and Bluethooth 5.

The ENVY x360 15 as a 15-inch convertible – a tablet and notebook in one – and the ENVY 17 as a classic 17-inch notebook are designed for creative users and enable them to work from anywhere and stay connected. The new devices take into account the fact that 74 percent of consumers are even more occupied with creative tasks during the pandemic, according to a survey of US and Chinese consumers. The focus is often on hobbies that require a powerful computer for computationally intensive applications such as photography, live blogging and the creation and editing of short videos.
