CNET First Look
The HP Envy 17 gets Leap Motion and not much elseHP's Envy 17 with Leap Motion includes a built-in sensor and allows for touchless interactions.
Hey, guys. I'm Sharon Vaknin and we're taking a first look at the HP Envy 17 with Leap Motion. Now, HP introduces computer to its line-up last year. But now they're adding Leap Motion built in to the PC. And what that gets you is touch-free controlling of the computer. Now, HP hasn't done anything special to adapt its software to Leap Motion, but Airspace, that's Leap Motion's app store, does come built-in. The screen is 1080p. You've also got an HDMI port, two USB ports and an SD card slot. Now, we don't know what the base configurations for this computer will be, but we do know that you can go up to a 2-terabyte hard drive, up to 16 gigabytes of RAM and up to an i7 processor. The screen is full HD at 1080p and you'll be able to choose from touch screen and non-touch versions. Now, because Leap Motion is built in to the PC, you're going to have to keep it connected to power. Otherwise, you can expect very short battery life. The HP Envy 17 with Leap Motion will come out October 16th starting at 1,049. For cnet.com, I'm Sharon Vaknin.
