HP has pulled back the curtain on several new consumer and business-centric ultrathin notebooks, bringing the latest and greatest that Intel and AMD have to offer into slimmer, sleeker chassis. The new models offer fresh takes on existing lines, and entirely new "sleekbooks" that hope to skirt around Intel's ultrabook standard. Follow our coverage right here.
HP is now taking pre-orders for the Envy Spectre XT ultrabook, and it is expected to start shipping on June 22nd. The base configuration costs $999.99 and includes a 1.7GHz Core i5-3317U Ivy Bridge processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD.
The HP Envy Spectre XT promises to improve on the company's earlier premium ultrathin machine, improving battery life, performance, and showing off a sleek new look.
With the new Sleekbook moniker, HP has found a way to sell a cheaper thin-and-light laptop that looks identical to its own ultrabook.
The HP EliteBook Folio 9470m lends a bit of HP's business acumen to their Folio ultra book line.
