HP Announces SlateBook 14, a Tegra-based Android Laptop

Computex doesn't kick off until Tuesday but many company are announcing their wares at press conferences over the next couple of day. HP is among them and today unveiled a host of new products including an Android powered laptop called the slathe HP SlateBook 14.

We first got wind of this device in late April, when it popped up on HP’s website. It packs a 14-inch display and is based on Nvidia’s Tegra chipset. When we spoke to HP, the company told us this device is directed at tech savvy millennials who can’t get enough of Android. The Slatebook is supposed to unlock the benefits of Android on a larger display while also giving users the productivity of a notebook. Whether these Android-loving millennials actually want a notebook that runs Android remains to be seen.

The HP SlateBook 14 is priced at $399 and will be available starting in August. Check the specs below and stay tuned for a hands on later this week!

    A small correction
    "Isn't k1 gonna be better for a notebook ??
    You've got a large ( in comparison to phones or tablets ) and afford active cooling
    And why is the HDD limited to 64 GB ???????
    And if yellow is the only color that's gonna be available then its almost gonna be doomed for sure "
