HP SlateBook Android laptop front angle

Looks like those rumors of HP building an Android-powered laptop were true.

HP today announced a new series of laptops, and included in the bunch is a new laptop that runs Android and is known as the HP SlateBook. The notebook is running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and has an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor at its heart. Here’s what the full rundown on the SlateBook looks like:

  • 14-inch 1920x1080 touchscreen
  • Quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor
  • 16GB-64GB of internal storage
  • 2GB of RAM
  • Front-facing webcam
  • Beats Audio speakers
  • 1 USB 3.0 port, 2 USB 2.0 ports, 1 HDMI port
  • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
  • Up to 9 hours of battery life
  • Weighs 3.75 pounds
  • Launching in the U.S. on July 20 for $429.99

While HP’s SlateBook certainly isn’t the first Android-powered laptop that we’ve seen, those devices are still somewhat rare. With a 14-inch 1080p touchscreen, quad-core Tegra 4 processor, Beats Audio and a large selection of Android apps, the SlateBook 14 could be an interesting choice for folks looking for a new laptop on the cheap. The inclusion of Android 4.3 is a bit of a disappointment, so hopefully HP will update it to Android 4.4 in a timely manner.

  • 11.6-inch 1366x768 display
  • Samsung processor
  • 16GB storage
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 6.25 hours of battery life
  • 2.69 pounds
  • Available in turquoise and silver
  • Launching in the U.S. in July for $279.99
