Keine Frage, das Design der neuen TouchSmart Laptops ist ansprechend. Auch wenn es uns bekannt vorkommt. Als Spitze der neuen Laptops mit Haswell Prozessoren ist definitiv der HP Envy TouchSmart 14 eine besondere Erwähnung wert, denn nicht nur ähnelt er verblüffend dem MacBook Air, sondern (in der Maximal-Version) mit einer Auflösung von 3.200 x 1.800 ist das Display definitiv ein großer Schritt nach vorne. Bis zur Veröffentlichung weiterer Spezifikationen und des genauen Releasedatums wird es aber wohl noch ein wenig dauern. PR der weiteren Laptops nach dem Break.

  • HP Envy TouchSmart 14 Ultrabook. Let's start with the one you all want to hear about, shall we? The TouchSmart 14 is a 14-inch Ultrabook that will be offered with an optional 3,200 x 1,800 display (maybe this one?), helping it potentially take on the likes of the Chromebook Pixel and the Retina Display MacBook Pro. With a starting price of $699, you can bet it doesn't actually come standard with that resolution, though. No, in fact, it starts with a run-of-the-mill 1,366 x 768 panel, and will also be offered with an in-between 1,600 x 900 option. (Strangely, there won't be any 1080p, though.) Look for that later this summer.
  • HP Envy TouchSmart 15. As the replacement to the current dv6, the TouchSmart 15 Ultrabook will be offered with a mix of AMD and Intel processors, along with a 15.6-inch, 1080p screen. As for audio quality, it packs four speakers (not like the two you'll find on most laptops), plus a subwoofer. You can find it on June 5th, priced at $529 and up.
  • HP Envy 17. If you were waiting on a successor to HP's dv7, your wait is over. The Envy 17 has a 17.3-inch, 1,920 x 1,080 screen and will be sold with Haswell processors and NVIDIA graphics (HP hasn't yet revealed which GPU). Other specs include up to 2TB of storage, Beats Audio, four speakers and a dual-drive subwoofer. It'll go on sale June 5th for $699 and up.
  • HP Pavilion 11 TouchSmart. The Pavilion TouchSmart 11 is the successor the 11-inch dm1, and indeed, it still has many of the same high-level specs -- namely, an 11-inch, 1,366 x 768 display and your choice of AMD processors (A4 or A6). The difference, though, is that now it has a 10-point, capacitive touchscreen, something we're frankly shocked to see on a $399 system. It's worth noting, too, that that isn't an optional touchscreen -- it's a standard feature. Heck, there isn't even a non-touch option here. That's the big news; other specs include an aluminum palm rest, replaceable battery, VGA and HDMI output, SD reader, Ethernet jack and three USB ports. Again, it'll cost $399 when it goes on sale next month (June 26th is the official on-sale date).
  • HP Pavilion 14, 15 and 17. Last year, HP's budget laptops fell under the G series. This year, they're simply dubbed the Pavilion Notebooks. In a briefing ahead of the launch, an HP rep said these are aimed at more "conservative" consumers -- you know, the type who isn't ready to give up an optical drive or VGA port. In fact, only the Pavilion 15 will be available with a touchscreen at launch. Spec-wise, these rock AMD or Intel processors, with up to 1TB of storage, SRS Premium sound and 1,366 x 768 resolution (c'mon, what'd you expect on a budget notebook?). They'll all be available June 5th, with the Pavilion 14 priced at $479, the 15 at $429 and the 17 at $449.
