The 15-inch convertible starts at $ 749.99 and is available on both AMD Ryzen 7 and Intel 11th Gen processors. 17-inch clam shells start at $ 999.99 and are Intel only.

The Envy x360 is available in either “Natural Silver” or “Nightfall Black” and includes a magnetic active pen. Its bezel appears to be slightly smaller than last year’s model. The model’s screen-to-body ratio is 88.7% and weighs about 4 pounds. (Last year’s model didn’t have a terrible bezel, but you can never say no to any more screen area.) It can be configured with a 4K OLED display and Nvidia MX450 graphics chip.


The top Intel model includes the Core i7-1165G7 and the AMD model is the Ryzen 75 700U. When we tested the former on last year’s Dell XPS 13, we saw significant performance improvements over the 10th generation of the previous generation, especially in integrated graphics.

The large Envy 17 has a screen-to-body ratio of 86.3% and weighs just over 5.5 pounds (a little lighter than last year’s model). It also comes with an MX450 and 4K display (but no OLED option). It can be configured with up to 1TB of PCIe SSD storage and 32GB of memory. 9, is available with both AMD Ryzen 7 and Intel 11th Gen processors.

The top Intel model will include a Core i7-1165G7, while AMD models go up to a Ryzen 7 5700U. I tested the former in last year’s Dell XPS 13, and it delivered a noticeable performance increase over its 10th Gen predecessor, particularly in integrated graphics.

Both models have a touchpad that is 19% larger than the previous model and a physical camera shutter.


In the past, I was very impressed with the line of envy. Last year’s Envy x360 13 was one of my favorite laptops in 2020 and was a favorite for less than $ 1,000. It has a sturdy and attractive chassis, excellent keyboard, powerful performance, and all-day battery life. (Basically, I had little complaints.) They tend to be good options for budget and midrange shoppers who are still looking for good specs.
