HP Unveils Two New Pavilion Sleekbooks

HP has announced two new Pavilion Sleekbooks during CES 2013, with one sporting a touchscreen.

Named the Pavilion TouchSmart Sleekbook and the Pavilion Sleekbook, both laptops sport 15.6-inch (1,366 x 768) displays, replaceable batteries, as well as numpads.

Also included is trackpads compatible with Windows 8 gestures, as well as HP's CoolSense technology. They'll both be available with three color choices and will boast HP's Imprint finish.

While both models will feature AMD Trinity processors, the TouchSmart starts with an AMD A8 chip and 6 GB of RAM. The non-touch version starts with an A6 APU and 4 GB of memory.

As for storage space, the latter starts with 500 GB of space, while the TouchSmart boasts 750 GB. The touchscreen version is slightly thicker by measuring 23mm thick when compared to the non-touch version's 21mm.

The non-touch Sleekbook is scheduled for a release later this month, with prices starting at $499. The TouchSmart, meanwhile, will launch during February, with prices starting at $699.

    Why are there still new 15" laptops coming out with 1366x768? STOP THIS CRAP, GIVE ME HIGH RES!!! Seriously, since getting a Catleap off of ebay I cannot do less than 1080, even on a 13" screen. I got that over a year ago for $350 and now that a $400 tablet (Nexus 10) has a 2560x1600 screen, there is no excuse.

    The reason for the resolution and AMD APU?
    Keeps costs down, otherwise the touch version would be around $100 to $150 more, sure everybody wants a flagship ultrabook but the majority of real world sales come from mid-range to low-end, they should sell a boatload to big business doing their next laptop refresh
