The HP Envy 15 Beats Edition is an upscale and super-powered notebook released in October 2009 alongside the Windows 7 operating system. It hosts an Intel Core i7 processor (up to 1.73GHz), up to 16GB of RAM, and a graphics-intensive ATI Mobility graphics card with 1GB of vRAM. It’s built primarily towards musicians and those seeking enhanced audio quality, which is why it even hosts a pair of over-the-ear Beats Studio headphones to boast. Included also is an internal Beats Audio configuration and a plethora of essential DJ software: Native Instruments’ Traktor LE and Audio 2 DJ. The Envy 15 BEATS is definitely not built for budget-conscious shoppers, as its base model starts at $2299.99 — and rapidly increases as higher-level specifications like more RAM are applied.
