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.
