HP Envy 13 gets cancelled

Posted on Monday, February 21 2011 @ 12:55:40 CET by


CNET reports HP has officially axed its Envy 13 design. This laptop was designed to go head to head with the MacBook Air, but pricing was a bit too high to justify. The model is now replaced by the Envy 14, which is a more mainstream model. Earlier this month Dell did the same thing as it killed its Adamo laptop.
"We don't offer the Envy 13 anymore...the Envy 14 basically replaced [it]," an HP spokeswoman said today.

But the Envy 14 is hardly what the 13 was: at under 4 pounds, it weighed about two pounds less than the 14 and was a svelte 0.8 inches thick, compared to the 14's prosaic 1.16 inches. (Like the MacBook Air and Dell Adamo, the Envy 13 did not integrate an optical drive.)

For those unfamiliar with the Envy 13, it was an obvious response to Apple's aluminum MacBook line and specifically the MacBook Air. (This was confirmed by an HP representative I spoke to at a trade show I was attending when the Envy 13 was released.)
