The most talked about feature of the Envy 17 is definitely Leap Motion. This is a motion activated mouse that allows you to interact without touching the computer itself. This is in addition to already having a touch screen, which is sure to be another perk that will draw people to the device.

They do not need to make up for deficiencies anywhere else, since they revealed that the money saved would be invested back into the company.

The real motivator for HP may have been the great success of iPad. As HP’s sales have gotten big bites taken out of them, they have considered reshaping their business processes. This so-called transition period will see Mike Lynch, head of HP’s Autonomy division, replaced by the current chief strategy officer, Bill Veghte.
