Redefining creativity for modern consumers, HP has unveiled its latest portfolio of HP ENVY notebooks. The HP ENVY15, with its minimalist design and powerful software and hardware features, will provide users with an unparalleled experience of versatility and mobility. In addition, HP has also introduced its latest Z by HP mobile workstations–The HP ZBook Studio and HP ZBook Create.

This powerful line-up enables all levels of creators – including consumers, prosumers and professionals to capture, create, and bring to life digital concepts and ideas that can be shared, enjoyed, and experienced. In the past, creators had to choose between bulky devices to get the power they require for work and play. Today, HP is pushing the boundaries of engineering and creative productivity by allowing photographers, vloggers, graphic designers, architects, filmmakers, and everyone in between, to achieve what was never thought possible.

“Creative expression is one of the most intrinsic human characteristics. In an increasingly connected world, people want to add their personal mark on it and share it widely with others. And to do that they are looking at tools that not only inspire them but enable them to bring their creativity to life” said Ketan Patel, Managing Director, HP India market. “The HP ENVY portfolio, engineered and designed to help unleash the power of the human mind, will allow our customers to maximise their potential.  This reiterates the HP philosophy, where we strive to help bridge the humanity with technology by constantly innovating and reinventing experiences” he added.

With a rich history of PC innovations for the creative community, HP is the ideal technology partner for the next generation of creators. For Gen Z creators, the practice of creativity is instinctual, and they need a device that helps bring their expressions to life as quickly as the latest memes and trending topics come and go. The HP ENVY portfolio, including the newest ENVY 15, is built for today’s consumers and prosumers who regularly edit photos and video, or develop graphics or web designs.  For those who create professionally – from design, modelling, coding or application design – Z by HP solutions are perfect small form-factor powerhouse solutions for resource-intensive tasks.

“A creator’s mind is never idle, always fueled with inspiration from the world around them. Creativity can strike anytime, anywhere. Yet lack of proper equipment can hold them back from achieving their true potential. With this in mind, we are introducing a creator’s powerhouse – the HP ENVY with seamless software integration, powerful performance, stunning display and long battery life built for today’s creative consumers and prosumers”, said Vickram Bedi, Senior Director, Personal Systems, HP India market.

HP ENVY: Power Your Expression


  • Design:
    • The minimalist design nods throughout this head-turning device, with a sophisticated aluminium chassis and diamond-cut design and is the first ENVY with a layer of glass on top of the touchpad for a smooth-touch experience.
    • Available across all-new HP ENVY devices this year is the all-in-one keyboard, which includes easily accessible buttons for power, camera shutter, mute mic, fingerprint reader, and HP Command Center.

Z by HP: Power Your Breakthrough

The HP ZBook Studio, the world’s smallest 15” laptop for creators and most powerful mobile workstation per cubic centimetre[x], while the HP ZBook Create, is the world’s smallest 15” notebook for creation and gaming[xi], allows users to create on-the-go like never before. There has been a 47% growth in thin and light form factors over the past three years, but most devices are still not designed for demanding workflows with professional applications, graphics, or colour accuracy. The latest additions to the Z by HP portfolio are smallest footprint with the highest-end Quadro RTX 5000 & GeForce RTX 2080-Refresh,  purpose-built and re-engineered from the ground up to meet the demanding needs of the most creative applications and workflows and provide optimal experiences today and in the future.

In 2015, the Scientific and Engineering Award was awarded by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the development of the HP LP2480zx Professional DreamColor display[xii]. The ZBook Studio and ZBook Create bring the first DreamColor display with 17.5 hours, all-day battery life2 to visual effects artists, animators, and colourists worldwide, enabling them to accurately represent their content on-screen from anywhere because of DreamColor’s built-in colourimeter for automatic self-calibration, 100% sRGB and Adobe RGB for accuracy, and over a billion colours[xiii] for smoother shading and more consistent gradients.

HP ZBook Studio and HP ZBook Create:

  • Performance:
    • Creators can design, edit, render, and stream from anywhere no matter how complex the workflow, with choices of Quadro® or GeForce® graphics and next-gen Intel® Core™ and Intel® Xeon® processors.
    • Creative pros today want to multi-task while projects are rendering in the background without slowing down other applications. The ZBook Studio is the most powerful mobile workstation per cubic centimeter7 for rendering.
    • Z Power Slider gives the user complete control over the type of performance and acoustics for specific workflows. At the same time, the Z Predictive Fan Algorithm intelligently manages fan behaviour based on the kind of work and applications used by creatives.
    • New vapour cooling chamber and liquid crystal polymer, gaming-class thermals are designed to equip users with the ability to run at maximum performance, as needed. The custom advanced cooling system pushes air away from the CPU and GPU in 2-dimensional paths, unlocking power density that is 2.8x higher gen to gen in a laptop design that is up to 30% smaller.
  • Design:
    • The ZBook Studio, the world’s smallest 15” laptop for creation, is the most powerful mobile workstation per cubic-centimetre[xiv], and ZBook Create pack a nearly borderless screen experience – 22% reduction in volume from the previous generation – alongside an up to 17.5-hour long-lasting battery life2 into a lightweight aluminium exterior, bringing creators a colour-accurate laptop with all-day battery life.
    • The Z Command Keyboard is designed specifically for creators for a seamless transition from other products, with a familiar keyboard layout for shortcuts, and ultra-quiet keys for the perfect creative flow without interruptions.
    • World’s best audio experience on a 15.6” notebook[xv] for creation and gaming provides rich audio with 150 Hz roll-off bass and speakers custom-tuned by Bang and Olufsen to surround users in a rich sound space, featuring the most powerful speakers with the highest levels of bass on any HP notebook.
  • Sustainability:
    • The world’s first mobile workstation with ocean-bound plastics1, the highly recyclable and lightweight aluminium exterior provides 5x the abrasion resistance of painted carbon fibre and still complies with MIL-STD 810G testing[xvi].
Meticulously built with extraordinary performance in a transformative size, never has so much power been engineered into such a sleek package. Rigorously tested. Ingeniously crafted. Keep your best talent creating on our best tech with the new benchmark for mobile workstations.
