Weighing about 7.37 pounds and measuring only about 1.28" thin when closed, the computer delivers quad-core performance and impressive aesthetics. It is housed in an all-aluminum body for enhanced durability. The Envy's chassis is adorned with nero black and natural silver colors.

The same optical drive can also read and burn DVD and CD discs. The computer also supports Intel's Wireless Display technology, which allows you to connect to an HDTV wirelessly. You'll need a compliant TV adapter in order to utilize this technology (sold separately).
