HP Envy 15 is First USB 3.0 Packing Notebook
Hewlett Packard has become the first manufacturer to use USB 3.0 in its products thanks to its HP Envy 15 notebook, the first portable PC to feature the new energy-efficient version of USB.
After the first USB 3.0 Hub being flashed the new Envy 15 is the first laptop to use the new standard which is said to deliver 10 times the transfer speed of USB 2.0 which we’ve all been using the last 8 years.
HP spokeswoman Sheila Watson said Tuesday that the company is shipping certain Envy 15 configurations with the USB 3.0 ports. “HP Direct (our online store) does now sell the Envy 15 with the USB 3.0 along with the new ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5830 Graphics (DX11),” she said in response to an e-mail query Tuesday, referring to the mobile Radeon graphics chip from Advanced Micro Devices’ ATI unit.
You can get your mits on the USB 3.0 equipped HP Envy now through the HP website.
If you don’t fancy the Envy just hang on a few weeks for HP’s EliteBook 8540p and 8540W models which will also be packing the new ports.
