HP’s cheapest Windows 8 laptop is also the company’s smallest. HP recently launched a new laptop called the HP Pavilion 10 TouchSmart, and as the name suggests it’s a 10 inch notebook with a touchscreen display.
The little laptop is powered by an AMD A4-1200 “Temash” processor, which is a low-power, moderate- performance chip with AMD Radeon HD 8180 graphics.
The base model has 2GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, 1 USB 3.0 port, and 2 USB 2.0 ports. It also features HDMI output, an SD card reader, an Ethernet jack and WiFi, but no Bluetooth.
You can also customize the laptop by adding Bluetooth and opting for a 500GB hard drive if you order from HP. The company also offers an HDMI to VGA adapter if you need one — but it’ll set you back an extra $30.
HP says you should be able to get up to 5 hours of battery life from a 3-cell battery, which isn’t bad for a $299 laptop, but it’s also not exactly impressive for a laptop released in late 2013.
The laptop measures 10.7″ x 7.7″ x 0.9″ and weighs 3.2 pounds.
