It’s shaping up to be a good year for fans of high-resolution laptop displays. Apple may have kicked things off when the company started shipping MacBook Pro notebooks with Retina displays, but this year we’ve also seen notebooks from Google and Toshiba with higher-than-full-HD screens.
Now HP is joining the party with the HP Envy TouchSmart 14. It’s an ultrabook with an optional 3200 x 1800 pixel display.
HP will also offer models with 1366 x 768 pixel and 1600 x 900 pixel displays and a starting price of $699 for a model with an Intel processor. I suspect you’ll have to pay a little extra for the highest resolution model.
There’s also a Sleekbook model, which is basically HP’s name for a thin and light notebook featuring an AMD processor instead of an Intel chip.
The HP Pavilion TouchSmart 14 Sleekbook will have a starting price of $480 when it launches on June 5th. Available options include AMD discrete graphics with up to 2GB of dedicated memory and up to 1TB of disk space.
If the TouchSmart name didn’t make it clear, each of these models will also feature touchscreen displays.
