60% HP Pavilion TouchSmart Sleekbook (14-b169tx) review
Source: APC Mag English
While this HP is a little dull compared to some others here, it’s actually not too bad when considered in the context of its price. With an RRP of just $999 and an even lower street price, it’s an affordable option for a slim, reasonably powerful laptop with a great touchscreen.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M:

Multiple models based on various chips of the Fermi generation. Specifically, the GT 630M exists in GF108/GF106/GF116 variants, but are all essentially renamed GeForce GT 540M or 555M GPUs. A 28nm GF117 variant exists as well with reduced power consumption.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display.

1.8 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
