HP are stepping into the 3D notebook field again with a bigger stride. Armed with a 120Hz. 1080p display the Envy 17 will include active shutter glasses that come along with it. It will function well as a movie-focused system and will include a Blu-ray drive and the latest version of the MediaSmart App that plays 3D movies. Additionally it will also include a 2.1-channel in-built Beats audio system, 2 terabyte data storage, a choice of quad-Core i7 chips and Mobility Radeon HD 5850 video support. It will come bundled with a 3D version of the NBA 2010 All-Star Game. There’s no word on the price though.

It will also pack Beats audio hardware, a red keyboard backlight to match the red and black body, 640GB storage, a choice of dual Core i5 chips between 2.53GHz and 2.8GHz, 4GB RAM, Mobility Radeon HD 5650 video and 6.5 hours of battery life.
