Hewett Packard has released Envy 15 and 17, which is completely redesigned inside and out. These new laptop models preserve their sexy brushed aluminum exterior. The Envy 15 and 17’s framework gets a brand-new makeover with matte black lids, silver palm-rests, and added the Beats by Dr. Dre branding through a logo on the recently added analog volume knob and well-ordered red border around the backlit chiclet keyboard.
