Last year, HP decided to launch a unified design thin and light notebook product line, across every keyboard, touchpad, hinges, lid and frame, the application of basically the the same curve. This year, the company will no longer do it on thin and light notebooks. According to the company CEO Meg Whitman authorization, all HP’s consumer-level device lineup will adopt a unified design. Of course, this also means that it’s very difficult for a single product to stand out.

But there are still two products successfully “escaped”, the first is the $ 399 HP Pavilion TouchSmart 11. The device uses AMD new low-power consumption Temash processor, even though the screen is only 11.6 inches, it’s still with a full-size keyboard, two-button touchpad, and comprehensive port configuration – including three USB, an HDMI, VGA, Ethernet and SD card slot. The shipping time is expected to be on June 26.

Second, it is the more exciting HP Envy 14 TouchSmart ultrabook.

HP Envy 14 TouchSmart starts at $ 699, and it’s equipped with the low resolution 14-inch 1366×768 resolution screen – but it can be upgraded to a higher 1600×900, or even the maximum resolution of 3200×1800.

In addition, there are cheaper HP 15-inch models. The HP Envy 15 TouchSmart notebook starts at $ 529, it uses AMD processors, and the default is not equipped with SSDs. Nevertheless, they are equipped with fingerprint reader.

Of course, HP also released the 17-inch models. HP Envy 17 gets rid of the “TouchSmart” and “ultrabook” in the name, but it offers touch screen, faster processor, larger memory, larger speakers and optional Nvidia graphics processor. We don’t know much more details, but the Envy 17 will be on sale on June 5, and the price starts from $ 699.
