HP’s dropped the price of the Envy 13 and Envy 15, which should make them a more attractive to consumers who keep an eye on their bank statements. The HP Envy 15’s starting price is now just $1,299, a $500 drop from the original starting price of $1,799. The HP Envy 13 is now $300 cheaper and has a starting price of $1,499.
The $1,299 configuration of the Envy 15 comes with an Intel Core i7 -720QM processor, 4GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5830 graphics. Adding an external DVD burner pushes the price up to $1,499 for HP’s recommended configuration. Features like the external Blu-ray drive, SSDs and 8GB of RAM can push the price of the Envy 15 back up above the $2,000 range.
The HP Envy 13 now starts at $1,499 after a $300 markdown from its original MSRP.
This aggressive markdown appears to be permanent rather than a sale or limited-time discount.
