HP Envy laptops, Ion netbook go up for sale

— 2:52 PM on October 19, 2009

Remember those sexy, aluminum-clad notebooks HP announced last month? Well, you can now place your orders. HP has started selling the Envy 13 and Envy 15 through its online store.

Prices start at $1,699 for the Envy 13, which has a 13.3" 1366x768 display, a 1.86GHz Core 2 Duo processor, Mobility Radeon HD 4330 graphics, 3GB of RAM, 250GB of mechanical storgae, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Windows 7 Home Premium x64. Thanks to its magnesium-aluminum alloy casing, the laptop weighs a scant 3.7 lbs. It's only 0.8" thick, too. If you have a little more cash to spare, you can get a higher-density 1600x900 display and an extended battery "slice" rated for up to 18 hours of run time.

Also among the newcomers on HP's online store: the Intel-powered Pavilion dm3t, which starts at $649.99 with a dual-core Pentium processor, Windows 7 Home Premium x64, and up to 10 hours of battery life. Additionally, you can now order the Mini 311, an 11.6" netbook with an Atom processor, Nvidia Ion graphics, and a sweet $399.99 price tag.

HP quotes an October 29 "estimated build date" for the Pavilion dm3t, the Envy 13, and the 15.6", $1,799 Envy 15. The build date on the Mini 311 is slightly sooner—October 27. (Thanks to Engadget for the tip.)
