HP has officially taken the wraps off its new SlateBook, a 14-inch notebook that runs Android and packs an NVIDIA Tegra 4 chipset under the hood.

It's worth pointing out that the new HP SlateBook is a different device from the SlateBook x2, which launched as an Android tablet complete with a keyboard dock, also running the Tegra 4 chipset.

Compared to the SlateBook 2, which sports a 10.1-inch full HD panel, the new SlateBook model comes with a larger 14-inch screen and is a full laptop running Android.

"Customers have made it clear that they need devices that better adapt to work and play the way they do," Mice Nash, HP vice president of Product Management, Consumer Personal Systems, said in the press release on Sunday, June 1.

"The HP SlateBook is a sleek, lightweight Android-powered notebook that gives customers access to the more than 1 million Android apps and games on Google Play in a more productive form factor. Equipped with a 14-inch Full HD touch screen, this compact, 16-mm thin notebook provides up to nine hours of battery life. An NVIDIA Tegra 4 mobile processor, plus integrated GeForce graphics, means the notebook lets users keep up with tasks at the office, home or on the go."

The new HP SlateBook further packs 2GB of dual-channel RAM and comes in three storage configurations: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, and HDMI. The notebook runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Other features include Beats Audio, as well as a TrueVision HD webcam. The thin and light HP Slatebook measures 0.63 x 13.54 x 9.45 inches and weighs in at 3.75 pounds.

The new HP SlateBook is set to hit commercial availability on July 20 in the U.S., sporting a $429.99 starting price, according to the press release. The product page, however, lists a $399 starting price, so it remains unclear at this point which price is the right one. HP should clarify this issue soon enough, and we'll keep you up to date as soon as it does. In the meantime, you can also pre-register your interest in this device on HP's website at this link and receive notifications when more information becomes available.
