HP intros Envy m4 laptop and a duo of Sleekbooks
Today, Hewlett-Packard has added three new ultraportable laptops to its 2012 line-up of consumer PCs. The Windows 8-based Pavilion Sleekbook 14, Pavilion Sleekbook 15 and Envy m4 models are apparently aimed at “savvy, tech- conscious users” and offer improved performance, and lightweight design. According to the manufacturer, the notebooks will become commercially available on October 26th and will have starting prices of $500, $560 and $900, respectively.
HP claims the 14-inch Sleekbook 14 is powered by a choice of AMD APUs (accelerated processing units), whereas the 15.6-inch Sleekbook 15 comes with a third generation Intel Core chip. Furthermore, the portable computers reportedly feature optional NVIDIA discrete graphics, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI interface and integrated high-definition web cameras for video conferencing.
Users will be further provided with the company’s very own CoolSense technology that presumably prevents your notebook from overheating, Dolby Advanced Audio and up to 1TB of storage.
Next in line is the Envy m4 laptop, which offers a 14-inch LED-backlit display of HD (1366-by-768 pixels) native resolution, an Ivy Bridge Core i3/Core i5 CPU and a brushed-aluminium design. Other features include two built-in speakers and a subwoofer (Beats Audio), Intel’s Wireless Display technology and a fingerprint reader with HP SimplePass for enhanced security.
