In addition to the two new Envy models this week, HP announced a slightly more affordable offshoot in their Envy Spectre line. The new HP Envy Spectre XT is a slightly slimmer, lighter and lower priced sibling to the Envy 14 Spectre announced earlier this year while retaining more of a premium upper-tier feel than said two cheaper Envy models.

The Envy Spectre XT has a tapered-edge design, giving the impression of looking slimmer than it really is. But it lacks the glass lid of the Envy 14 Spectre.
