Reviews for the HP Pavilion TouchSmart 14-b169tx

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.
