Each Envy Wood Series laptop features authentic wood inlay in the keyboard deck, including the touchpad surface. The surface coating has been tested for resistance to substances ranging from red lipstick and red wine; yellow mustard; coffee, soda, and beer; sunscreen, and solution inks, as well as the natural oils from your hands.

There are still lots of things we don't know about these upcoming laptops, like pricing and specs, but their unique chassis has us excited to learn more.
