As promised, HP is starting to offer thin and light laptops that look like ultrabooks, but are instead “sleekbooks.” The only real difference is that sleekbooks feature AMD processors, since Intel owns the trademark on the word “ultrabook.”
Oh yeah, Sleekbooks are also cheaper.
Update: HP is now offering a configurable model called the HP Envy 6z-1000 with a starting price of $599.99.
Both pre-configured laptops feature 15.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, 4GB of RAM, 500GB hard drives, 2 USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB 2.0 port, HDMI, and audio jacks. They also each feature 4 cell batteries, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, and Ethernet.
Each laptop measures just 0.78 inches thick — but the Intel model is a little heavier at 4.75 pounds. The Sleekbook version weighs 4.53 pounds.
The AMD model has Radeon HD graphics, while the Intel model comes with Intel HD graphics — or an optional AMD Radeon HD 7670M graphics card.
The ultrabook model also has a 32GB solid state disk for cache.
Update: You can configure the HP Envy 6z-1000 with a choice of dual core quad-core AMD processors, up to 8GB of memory, and up to 500GB of disk space.
