HP Envy 17 gets Leap Motion controller

Posted on Friday, September 20 2013 @ 14:17:12 CEST by

HP announced it's now offering ENVY 17 laptops with Intel's Haswel processor, optional NVIDIA discrete graphics and a built-in Leap Motion controller. The latter feature allow you to control the system with hand gestures, the controller tracks all 10 of your fingers in an area of eight cubic feet and captures movements as small as 0.01mm. Pricing for this 17" laptop starts at $1,049.99.
The Leap Airspace store features a nice collection of apps, which enable everything from Minority Report-style gesture controls to music creation to mid-air painting. According to HP, pricing for the Envy17 Leap Motion Special Edition will start at $1,049.99 with a Haswell processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 1TB 5,400-RPM mechanical hard drive. You'll be able to throw in a second hard drive (or, presumably, an SSD) and add discrete Nvidia graphics. The press release also mentions a "17.3-inch diagonal optional full HD display," which likely means the default resolution will be less than 1080p—but you'll be able to upgrade.

Leap Motion will also be bundled with ASUS high-end laptops and All-in-One PCs, but while HP chose to integrate it into the system, ASUS decided to bundle it as a seperate peripheral.
