AMD based ultrathins haven’t exactly been raining down on us over the last twelve months but HP have definitely been a strong supporter. HP is continuing with it’s Sleekbooks and will add an AMD-based Pavilion Touchsmart Sleekbook 15 to the range.

The Pavilion Sleekbooks are relatively low-cost devices and the Touchsmart will use an AMD A4 CPU which isn’t as powerful as the Core i3 and i5 used in Ultrabooks. The 15.6” touchscreen comes with a 1366×768 resolution. [No comment!] The price will be a competitive $649 though and you’ll have hard rive options up to 1TB. Availability is reported to be Feb 3rd.

A non-touchscreen version will also be available.

    If this was 11.6″ FullHD it would get somewhere.

    It might not be as powerful as a Core i5 in certain tasks, but the multimedia capabilities are superior.
