HP's Android notebook gets a price increase at launch
The SlateBook 14 notebook was
first leaked back in April
, and HP
officially announced the notebook in early June
. What makes the device somewhat intriguing isn’t the fact that it uses a Google-based operating system, but that it uses Android (which is usually seen on smartphones and tablets) instead of Chrome OS.
, HP said that it went in this direction because its customers said they wanted Android-based notebook computers. We can’t fault HP for answering the calls of its customers, but we doubt that they’ll like the fact that the price for the SlateBook 14 has increased by $30 since it was first announced.

put windows RT on it and it would be useful.
Although, for the price I would think they could use one of the new entry AMD cpu, overall probably better than the T4 and still can run traditional windows apps.
I applaud them for putting a lower end high end laptop, I like the option for the 1080p screen and nice form factor. Just need additional OS options, and CPU/OS combinations.
