CES Rumor Mill: Does huge price slash on HP Envy 13 mean a new ultra-thin laptop release is imminent?

450 dollar price cut to $999 is serious business

| Laptops News | Posted: Dec 30, 2010 4:31 am

HP's Envy 13, their answer to the Macbook Air, has gotten a serious price slash from $1499.99 to $999.99 With its 13.1-inch, 1366×768 screen, Intel 1.6GHz Core 2 Duo Processor (SL9300), 3GB of memory, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330 Graphics with 512MB of dedicated memory, Beats audio, and 250GB (5400RPM) hard disk drive, that makes this a pretty attractive laptop for the price.

The big question being raised at this point is whether HP is just looking to clear out old stock, or whether they've got something up their sleeves to compete with the newest Macbook Airs at CES. With the Envy 13 no longer even featured on the HP Envy page alongside its bigger brothers, it's anyone's guess at HP's strategy at this point. I guess we'll find out in about a week.
