i'll try my luck with the experts day now to ask some questions about the leaked new envy models, envy 4 & 6.
1. are these supposed to replace the corresp. current envy-3000 models, or are they going to be part of a new envy line?
if replacing the current ones - would that mean the end of the 17"-envy? how about 3d versions?
2. how about the hardware specs for both, envy 4/6 and/or possible new envy-4000 notebooks?
ati/amd or nvidia gpu? (i personally would prefer to have new ati/amd gpus; 7800 or higher in the envy 17)
intel 77 chipsets?
ivy bridge cpus?
EDIT: envy 4/6 seems to be a budget envy line with previous-generation cpu & gpu at the time they get released - fail.
so please take the also confirmed envy-4000 series to the max in terms of specs.
ie. ivy bridge i7 cpu, radeon 7800m minimum.
thunderbolt and an optionable 2560x1600 display would also be a good idea to match some specs from the MBPs where they beat everything else, while hopefully beating it in all other specs.
and please bring back the nice flowery top cover design from the 1000 & 2000 series instead of the boring one from the 3000 series, at least as an option for guys like me who like girlie-like designs although not being one!

I like your recommendations on new products. You won't get any HP employees to comment on unreleased/unannounced products though.

this is what i expected, thanks!
envy 4/6 seem to be ultrabooks; well, im only interested in the envy 17-4000 3d, so ill dig through rumors and hope on to get back the girly top cover design, as well as some
top-end high-end (since its just a multimedia notebook, no gaming one, to keep its thin design ) hardware inside it, and eventually something really unique (eg. thunderbolt; resolution >1080p), at least unique among non-apple notebooks. but since apple is probably gonna ditch their workstation products soon anyway, theres room for hp to become a trend setter, yay!
