HP launches ENVY Sleekbook series of ultrabooks


There’s ultrabooks that looks nice on the store shelves, and there’s ultrabooks thay you’ll actually buy.  The second category is where HP’s recently launched line of ultrabooks fall under, and possesses a name befitting the moniker. The Sleekbook features a relatively large 14- and 15.6-inch screen and both devices are only 19.8mm thin.

Curiously, the 14-inch version will either be powered by Intel’s second or third generation of Core i processors while the bigger, 15.6-inch version will supposedly carry AMD’s second generation mainstream APU. Both devices will have HDDs rather than SSDs, with the 14-inch version carrying a 500GB HDD while the 15.6-inch version possesing a smaller capacity, 320GB HDD. The HP ENVY Sleekbook with 14-inch display size is expected to be available in the United States on May 9 with a starting price of $699.99. The HP 15.6-inch Sleekbook is expected to be available in the United States on June 20 with a starting price of $599.99. No word on availability in the Philippines yet.
