Hewlett Packard has unveiled its updated line of Envy notebooks, with the big draw being the 14-inch Envy 14 priced at just under $1,000. The computer measures an inch thick and weighs 4.4 pounds, which is pretty good for a machine with a 14-inch screen.

It’s actually a 14.5-inch screen for those of you keeping score, and HP is promising up to six hours of battery life in “one of the thinnest and lightest quad-core notebooks available in the world.” The word “available” is used a little loosely, as you won’t be able to purchase the Envy 14 until June 27.

There’s also a 17-inch version called the Envy 17, which will be available on May 19 starting at just under $1,400. Both machines feature ATI Radeon 5830 graphics cards, backlit keyboards, and slot-loading optical drives.

HP also announced new mid-range Pavilion notebooks: the dm4, dv5, dv6, and dv7, which will be available on May 19th with starting prices ranging from $730 to $850 and screen sizes from 14 to 17 inches.

And rounding out the bunch are the already-available Mini 210 and Mini 110 netbooks. We’ll see aesthetic changes to the 210 line in mid-June with “two new designs, preppy pink and white crystal.” The Mini 110 will be getting a standard six-cell battery to replace the three-cell. That’ll also be available in mid-June. The 210 will start at $355 while the 110 will start at $280.
