[PCPro] AMD Ultrathin - Forget the Ultrabook: here comes the HP Sleekbook

Models on display here in Shanghai use the latest APUs: the A10-4655M is a 32nm Trinity part (AMD’s forthcoming APU family), running at 2.3GHz across two cores, and includes a Radeon HD 7620G graphics chip.
Quote:
Both Envy machines provide Ultrabook-style dimensions and, in some cases, Ultrabook-style performance – even if they’re actually Sleekbooks – and HP is pricing both of these machines accordingly. Envy systems bearing the Ultrabook logo will start at £649, making them some of the cheapest Ultrabooks on the market, and Sleekbook versions are £100 cheaper.


Wow, will have to test run it in store first but Amd "sleekbooks" for £100 cheaper than ultrabooks = shut up and take my money?

Anyway, for those wondering in the 2nd and 3rd photo, the red and black ones are the AMD sleekbooks, i think.

I've always had good cooling performance on them... garbage HDDs though.

This could be epic win, especially if they make one with the A8, and price is around £450 (a bit low, but I can dream!)

I like them... they're better than other brands i've tried *cough*Dell*cough*

If these can fit a standard SSD inside, i'm sold for them, unless the APU performance isn't that good.

looks like they will be $599 in the US,

Currently, 599.00 USD = 371.677 GBP ... as always, getting screwed on prices in the UK frown.gif

Other than that, I've always had good luck with their laptops, and have owned a half-dozen of them in as many years.

With an APU, you wont have to worry about a separate GPU tongue.gifrolleyes.gif

yeh seems strange but is being echoed all over the web now.... guess its because the smaller screen has a higher pixel density so more expensive, maybe tougher engineering to squeeze parts in?
