Android-based laptop could be held back by high price tag
For those interested in a laptop running Android, the HP Slatebook is now available on Amazon for $430 . It's a 14-inch notebook running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and powered by an Nvidia Tegra 4.0 processor running at 1.8GHz, 2GB of DDR3L RAM, and 16GB solid state drive. The configuration is along the lines of a Chromebook, though the pricing is in the low-end spectrum of Windows laptops.
That may ultimately be a deal killer, especially since there's more you can do with a Windows laptop that costs about the same. Nevertheless, HP is banking on there being customers who find appeal in running all of their Android apps on a notebook as opposed to a smartphone or tablet PC.
The 14-inch display boasts a 1920x1080 resolution and 10 points of capacitive touch. Other features include 802.11n Wi-Fi, two USB 2.0 ports, a single USB 3.0 port, HD webcam, Bluetooth, and a 3-cell battery good for up to 9 hours run time. It measures 13.54 inches (W) x 9.45 inches (D) x 0.63 inches (H) and weighs 3.71 pounds.
