HP Envy 14 TouchSmart Notebook To Get A 3200 by 1800 Display

/ 3 years ago


HP has been showing off a revamped line of notebooks and ultrabooks to The Verge recently that both take advantage of new AMD mobile Richland APUs and Intel Haswell mobile CPUs. All of them have come a long way to previous generation HP products but the one that stands out by far is the HP Envy 14 SmartTouch. The reason being is that it packs one of the highest resolution displays we have ever seen an a notebook – 3200 by 1800 on a 14 inch screen.

What’s interesting is that traditional PC vendors are finally recognising that they need a direct competitor to Apple’s MacBook Pro Retina, there are currently very few if any alternatives to the MacBook Pro Retina in the high resolution notebook space (that is notebooks with a resolution higher than 1080p). In fact it is sad that you can find tablets with higher resolution displays, the Google Nexus 10 is the most obvious example being just 10 inches in size yet having a 2560 by 1600 display.

HP’s Envy 14 TouchSmart will have an edge to edge glass display and a touch screen, plus support for Windows 8. Pricing and availability isn’t known but it is expected that HP might announce some more details at Computex next month.

What are your thoughts on high resolution notebooks? Do you know of any other alternatives to the MacBook Pro Retina?
