HP Launches Wooden Laptop Line With Real Walnut and Birch
Would you buy a wooden laptop?
HP’s latest laptops will bring a touch of the outdoors into your home office.
Following the success of their leather-clad Spectre Folio, the tech giant just dropped the “Envy Wood” series at the Computex 2019 trade show.
As the name suggests, each laptop’s keyboard deck—including the touchpad—features an authentic wooden veneer treated with a TPU coating that’s resistant to everything from beer to sunscreen.
Three combinations of wood and metal will be offered across three different models, according to PC World. The clamshell Envy 13 will only be be available with a Natural Walnut inlay and Nightfall Black case.
In addition to the Natural Walnut/Nightfall Black combo, the swiveling Envy 13 x360 variant will be available with a White Birch and Ceramic White scheme.
The larger Envy 15 x360 and Envy 17 models will come in either Natural Walnut and Nightfall Black or Pale Birch and Natural Silver.
As for new specs, The Verge reports that the laptops very similar to their all-metal predecessors, aside from unspecified “next-gen” Intel Core Processors and 2nd-generation AMD Ryzen chips with Vega graphics.
A specific release date hasn’t been announced, but you can expect to see the Envy Wood series on sale sometime this fall.
