Hewlett-Packard has officially killed the Envy 13, a MacBook Air rival that follows the Dell Adamo into the dustbin of luxury laptop history. After moving the Envy 13 into the fire sale bin over the last few months, the laptop is officially defunct. This follows the demise of the Dell Adamo. "We don't offer the Envy 13 anymore...the Envy 14 basically replaced [it]," an HP spokeswoman said today.
But the Envy 14 is hardly what the 13 was: at under 4 pounds, it weighed about two pounds less than the 14 and was a svelte 0.8 inches thick, compared to the 14's prosaic 1.16 inches. (Like the MacBook Air and Dell Adamo, the Envy 13 did not integrate an optical drive.)
