The HP Envy 13, HP Envy x360 13, HP Envy x360 15 and the HP Envy 17 Wood Series builds on the durability and performance of the previously announced metal versions, but feature a choice of all new, next-gen Intel Core processors or 2nd Generation AMD Ryzen Mobile Processors with Radeon Vega Graphics.
Each PC is accented with one-of-a-kind authentic wood inlay in two exquisite combinations: Nightfall Black with Natural Walnut, or Natural Silver with Pale Birch. The HP Envy Wood Series includes features like Amazon’s Alexa Service, Modern Standby, Wake on Voice, Wake on Fingerprint reader, along with privacy and peace-of-mind with HP Sure View and the HP Webcam Kill Switch solution.
The new laptops can be paired with the stylish HP Envy Uptown Tote, for added protection, mobility, and RFID security. For seamless and intuitive connection to dual 4K monitors, network, and accessories, the HP Thunderbolt Dock G2 with HDMI Adapter allows for full power, productivity and device expansion that works across HP and other non-HP laptops through a single USB-C cable connection.

Power for Designers and Creators
Designers and creators are redefining the world around us and demand the best technology to solve complex problems, which require more powerful, high-performance solutions previously only found in desktops workstations. The next generation HP ZBook 15 G6 and HP ZBook 17 G6 are the ultimate laptops for architects, designers, video editors, and VR creators who need desktop performance and power with the freedom to work wherever and whenever. With the choice of 9th Gen Intel® Core™ and Intel® Xeon® processors, and next generation NVIDIA® Quadro RTX graphics, the new ZBooks power demanding workflows including 3D design and VR. Both ZBooks offer tool-less expandability to upgrade memory and storage in seconds. The ZBook 17 G6 – the world’s most powerful mobile workstation – achieves full, unthrottled performance for simulation and GPU rendering. For color-critical workflows it features the world’s first 17-inch mobile workstation display with 100 per cent DCI-P3, giving access to even more colors.
For architects, product developers, and creative professionals who require high performance computing and expandability that fits in increasingly smaller workspaces, HP is introducing powerful entry workstations – HP Z1 Entry Tower G5, HP Z2 Mini G4, HP Z2 Small Form Factor G4, and HP Z2 Tower G4. The new HP Z2 Tower, the world’s most powerful and expandable entry workstation, has been redesigned to provide two times the graphics power, and an epic 41 per cent more processing power over the previous generation. This enables creators to confidently tackle complex workloads like rendering photo-realistic 3D models and scenes with full performance and whisper-quiet acoustics.
To give creators new ways to leverage VR in their workflows, the new HP VR Backpack is the ultimate machine for both VR creation and consumption. Specifically designed to tackle VR engines including Unreal and Unity, the VR solution provides incredible shading and framerate support for more natural rending. Powered by 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 and Nvidia® GeForce® RTX 2080, the VR Backpack provides a 30 per cent performance boost and 25 per cent more powerful graphics over the previous generation. The free-roam tetherless experience is designed to address the needs of multi-user entertainment venues, architectural walk-throughs, and design simulations. While docked or VESA mounted, the VR Backpack acts as a powerful, super-slim desktop ready for intensive design work.
