HP $399 touchscreen laptop breaks price barrier

HP wants to bring touch to price-conscious laptop buyers with the $399 Pavilion TouchSmart

The Intel-only Envy TouchSmart 14 ultrabook offers storage capabilities of up to 1TB, and will start shipping on June 26.

The ultrabook screen comes close to, but doesn't touch the 4K resolution, in which images are displayed at 3840 x 2160 pixels. But it beats Google's Chromebook Pixel, which has a resolution of 2560 x 1700 pixels. With Intel's Haswell processors, the laptop will offer improved graphics and better application performance than the current third-generation Core processors called Ivy Bridge.

HP also announced the Envy 17 non-touch laptop, which has a 17.3-inch screen. It is offered with Intel or AMD processors, and Nvidia's graphics card is optional. The desktop replacement has a thin and light design, and offers up to 2TB of storage. The laptop starts at $699 and will ship on June 5.
