HP today launched new Windows 11-powered Envy, Spectre, OMEN, and Victus portable PCs for prosumers and gamers.

“Creators aren’t just limited to professional photographers, designers, composers, and editors – everyone is a creator, collaborating with friends, family, and colleagues and creating from home, work, and all the places in between,” HP general manager Josephine Tan said of the prosumer products. “Today’s hybrid world requires a new perspective on what to create with, which is why HP is launching a diverse set of devices across its Spectre and Envy portfolios to enable creation without limitation.”

The new Spectre and Envy offerings all include a 5 MP front-facing camera, HP Auto Frame, and HP Dynamic Voice Leveling for clearer hybrid meetings, up to 4K OLED displays with touch and 120 Hz refresh rates, and 12th Gen Intel Core/Evo processor options.
