HP rolls out new ultrabooks, sleekbooks

Written by Peter Scott



Business and pleasure


HP has rolled out three new ultrabooks and for some reason it has invented a new product category, dubbed Sleekbooks.

Sleekbooks are thin and light notebooks that don’t meet Intel’s ultrabook spec to the letter, but they are pretty interesting designs nonetheless. Sleekbooks come in 14- and 15.6-inch sizes and they also commit the ultimate act of heresy by featuring both Intel and AMD chips.

There is no word on exact specs just yet, but it is safe to assume that they will feature AMD’s new Trinity APUs, as the current Llano crop does not offer any ULV parts. The really good news is the pricing. The 14-inch sleekbook will start at $700, while the 15-incher will come in at just $600. The Intel-powered version will cost $200 more and Trinity is looking very nice indeed.

As for proper ultrabooks, HP has introduced the all-metal Envy Spectre XT 13.3-incher. At just 14.5mm thin it will ship with Ivy Bridge and a 128GB SSD. Of course, don’t expect it to come cheap – prices start at $999. In addition to the Spectre, HP has rolled out a business oriented EliteBook ultrabook, featuring a smart card reader, TPM security, security lock and screw, along with on-board encryption. So it is perfect for Wall Street types, or people who'll be first up against the wall when the revolution comes. Prices start at €1,149.
