USB 3.0 now shipping in HP Envy 15 notebooks

The HP Envy 15 is ushering in USB 3.0 by becoming the first notebook from a mainstream brand to offer the new interface. USB 3.0 will come standard on models configured with a Core i7 CPU and the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5830 GPU. The HP EliteBook will be getting the same treatment within the coming weeks. Exciting, I know.

If you can’t wait for the good times to start rolling, head over to HP Direct where you can configure an Envy 15 with USB 3.0 for only $1,449. Or you can buy the Seagate BlackArmor PS 110 500GB kit that comes with an USB 3.0 ExpressCard adapter and update your current notebook.
