Still using a crummy old 1366 x 768 pixels resolution notebook? You don't know what you're missing out in clarity and productivity from a high resolution display. And with the advent of Windows 8 that works best with a touchscreen, you really need to give your old machine a break. Sounds like an expensive proposition?
Not at all with the HP Envy TouchSmart 14 (k022tx) Sleekbook machine! At only S$1,699, you get a top of the line QHD+ LED-backlit IPS screen with 10-point touch input capability in a sleek and package that's only 2kg in weight and looks like a premium notebook. HP's 14-inch QHD screen crams 3200 x 1800 pixels which gives it a higher pixel density count than many of it competitors which are still touting 1080p (full HD) screens. To accompany it's sharp and crisp multi-touch high resolution screen, the notebook also has a clickpad with full multi-touch gesture support to better assist Windows 8 usage. Other perks of this executive looking notebook are island-style backlit keyboard, Beats Audio enabled dual speakers with subwoofer, a large 750GB HDD with a 24GB mSATA cache to speed up access to frequently used applications and an NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M discrete GPU for basic gaming needs. And of course, it runs an Intel fourth generation Core processor, a Core i5-4200U for all its processing needs.
