Envy with wood

HP will be offering a Wood Series of its Envy laptops which sport wood veneer on the palm rests and touchpad.

Veneer is veneer

Like the similar cladding for Acer's Concept D desktop, you'll never mistake it for natural wood.

Color matched

The veneers are matched to the metal color of the laptops; for example, Dark Ash gets a dark veneer, white gets a light veneer and so on.

Touchpad

Given that most premium touchpads are going with glass, even a smooth veneer doesn't seem like a great choice. But we'll only know after using it for a while.

The batteries on the harness now ride higher and swap easier.
