HP isn’t wasting any time here at CES and have already announced a slew of new monitors, desktop PCs, as well as a few notebooks. Today they’ve also added two awesome new Sleekbooks to their growing lineup. HP has just announced the all new HP Pavilion TouchSmart Sleekbook geared for Windows 8, as well as a non-touch Sleekbook to round out their offering. More details below.
The brand new HP TouchSmart Sleekbook is their best, most affordable touch notebook to date according to Kevin Wentzel, Technical Marketing Manager at HP. With the new Touchsmart they look to easily expand beyond the traditional keyboard and mouse for a truly emmersive touch experience provided by Windows 8.
Both new Pavilion Sleekbooks offer a full HD 15.6-inch display, and the TouchSmart is fully touch sensitive from edge-to-edge. It will feature full multi-touch gesturing, easy navigation, and much much more. Being 15.6-inches HP’s managed to still equip these new notebooks with numeric keyboards, user replaceable batteries, and excellent portability.
HP’s goal was to offer a friendly priced full touch notebook for Windows 8 users that delivers affordable reliability, outstanding durability and performance in a thin and light form factor. The all new HP Pavilion Sleekbook and TouchSmart Sleekbook provide exactly that. We’ll learn more of the full specs, details, pricing, and release date soon so stay tuned for hands-on pictures while we’re here live at CES 2013.
