HP’s Envy 13 is a premium, portable laptop that launched about a year ago for $900 and up. Now HP is giving the Envy 13 a refresh.

The new model has a faster processor, a bigger battery, and a slightly lower starting price.

The 2016 HP Envy 13 is available from HP.com starting today for $849 and up.

HP’s new laptop measures about 12.8″ x 8.9″ x 0.5″ and has an aluminum and magnesium body. A model with a touchscreen display weighs about 3.3 pounds, while a non-touch model weighs 3.14 pounds.

Both versions feature a 57.8 Wh battery that HP says should last for up to 14 hours at a time. The notebook also supports fast charging, allowing you to get up to 12 hours of run time from a 90 minute charge (or in slightly more realistic terms, it takes about an hour and a half to get a 90 percent charge… which will last you however long 9/10ths of the battery will last).

The laptop has a backlit keyboard with a wide glass touchpad, a hyperbaric cooling chamber using the same technology as HP’s ultrathin Spectre laptop, and stereo speakers that face upward.

It has a USB Type-c Port, two USB 3.0 ports with sleep and charge support, a microSd card slot, and HDMI port.

The 2016 HP Envy 13 is available with a choice of 1920 x 1080 pixel or 3200 x 1800 pixel IPS displays, although the touchscreen option is only available if you opt for the higher-resolution QHD+ display.

Other options include Core i5 or Core i7 Kaby Lake processors, up to 16GB of RAM, 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB of PCIe solid state storage, or a 128GB SATA SSD.

The entry-level $849 model, by the way, has a Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a full HD display.
