The HP ENVY line of notebooks loses a few models and a few upgrade options as winter approaches. Are they hibernating or gone for good.
The HP ENVY 13 is officially gone from the HP online store, a move we have seen coming for several months now. The HP Envy 13 was pegged to take a final shutdown back in May when HP introduced the HP ENVY 14 and HP Envy 17 notebooks but we weren’t expecting the HP ENVY 15 to say goodbye as well, which it did in the past few weeks.
Also missing is the high res Radiance screen option on the HP ENVY 14 which provided a 1600 x 900 resolution workspace. We noticed that the Radiance display wasn’t a part of the HP Envy 14 Beats edition, but assumed it was just a quirk of the special edition, but sadly it seems that it is another victim of “clueless consumers”.
Given that Apple has finally opted for a decent resolution display on the company’s smaller notebooks will more manufacturers and consumers wake up to the joy of a high-res display or will it still be a luxury that we pay for dearly with each new notebook purchase.
