A device that is not quite an Ultrabook is now on sale. Yes, we're talking about HP's Sleekbook line which is basically an Ultrabook sans the Intel processor. The latest Sleekbook offering from HP comes touting a new AMD Trinity APU and HP is now taking orders for the device on their website.
Surprisingly, HP is not offering any sort of configuration options for the new Envy Sleekbook 6. It comes sporting a dual-core AMD A6-4455M APU, integrated Radeon HD 7500G graphics, 4GB of DDR3 system memory, and a 500GB 5,400-RPM mechanical hard drive. All of that fits inside a machine that is less than 5 pounds and 0.78" thick.
Connections available include dual USB 3.0 ports, HDMI out, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. The system can purportedly run for up to nine hours on its 60 watt-hour lithium-ion polymer battery. If you want a bit more power of customization options, however, you should spend the extra $100 and go to the Intel-based model which can be configured with a discrete GPU and 32GB SSD.
