This deal has expired! This deal has expired!

If you're in the market for a laptop and need to travel light, Costco has a couple of HP Sleekbook models available right now that might be of interest. Here's a look at what's on sale:

HP Envy 6-1040ca Bilingual Sleekbook, AMD A6-4455M

  • 15.6" LED Backlit Display with BrightView
  • AMD A6-4455M
  • 8 GB DDR3 SDRAM
  • 500GB HD
  • HP TrueVision HD Webcam
  • Beats Audio
  • Backlit Keyboard

HP Envy 4-1030ca Bilingual Ultrabook, Intel Core i3-2377M

  • 14" LED Backlit Display with BrightView
  • Intel Core i3-2377M
  • 6 GB DDR3 SDRAM
  • 500 GB
  • 32 GB SSD
  • HP TrueVision HD Webcam
  • Beats Audio
  • Backlit Keyboard

Regardless of your preference and budget, both of these are pretty good performers. The Intel version is a little more expensive but it does have a smaller form factor and a 32GB solid state drive. Again, both of these would work well for travelers or casual users who need commute daily with a notebook.

The deals are live now and Quebec residents will want to check out their region specific links below:

      Yea, its a "CA" model....... yet hope the "BACKLIT" keyboard makes it up.....

      but for 1), i have to agree HP quality fluctuate, yet i have great personal experience with dm1, g60, g62, dv6 (new and old) and the old elitebook 6930p.....also incl refurb product

    • The AMD is English... backlit keyboard, brushed aluminium, 2 year warranty, seems really nice. HP does make some nice laptops, their business ones are better and cleaner, but this one looks nice.

      you are right, it says full size keyboard, I wonder if that means that full SHIFT keys.

      It says bilingual right in the main header! ARRRHGHGHGHHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHG ....I couldn't even type that properly on a bilingual keyboard. I would buy one in a second if it weren't for this! After struggling through 4+ years of bilingual keyboards, I promised myself that my next laptop would not have one, no matter what. :-(

      Totally agree with you. I just call them French Canadian now, they dont warrant "bilingual" they are so badly designed.
      But for the AMD model, the hint is that they wont ship it to Quebec. If you send an English keyboard to Quebec you go to jail for a long, long time.

      Wonder what it really is...

      I have this laptop with amd a6, I paid 599 for it a few months ago so this a good deal IMO.

      For a bi lingual keyboard it is actually quite good - the French parts are subtle and not backlit. It is generally a good laptop with a large screen. The main issues I have with it are:

      Left shift key is half size
      Screen res is not very high but is standard for this price range. Screen size possibly to large for the resolution.
      Screen viewing angles weak - but again this is a budget laptop
      Could be slightly faster however plays average games like world of Warcraft fine

      Track pad is very nice btw.

    • Can you game with these?
      The graphics card is the lowest end 7500G;it's going to run high-end games on low-medium settings I assume. There's no CD drive so either the game isn't downloaded or an external CD drive player.

      Really? So you think they've made a listing error? Well, I'm not even a Costco member, but I'll drag somebody down to take a look if there is a chance of that! lol

      Ugh...yes....I have nothing against French Canadians....well nothing personal! (there is a blog about these keyboards....sadly....FC's seem to immediately accuse everyone of being prejudiced!), but the vast majority of us don't need this keyboard, and it hurts many of us touch typists badly!!

      I thought I would adjust over time...in fact, even though I would occasionally be annoyed (at least once a day say), over three laptops, and 4+ years, a 55 page thesis, many small papers, notes, labs, personal writing....I realize....I adjusted to making errors and being slower! LOL

      After my last laptop died a few weeks ago, I had to pull out my 2004 compaq beast! It weighs approximately 300lbs, and ironically, I never liked the keyboard on it much. Still, that 2700$ athlon 64 still runs, despite logging hours and hours of choking on my 300meg photoshop files with it's 512mb and 4200rpm drive! Yet, after all that, about 3 min into using it, I had an epiphany: I was typing like a madman!!! It was only then I realized just how permanently handicapped I had become!

      Apple, Acer, smuggling across the border, buying a 5 yr old laptop...no matter what, I will only buy an english keyboard!

      It's the standard Trinity integrated GPU, pretty limited compared to a proper discrete one but better than the Intel options. So you can game, but likely at low quality.

      Might be worse.

      Laptop magazine review:
      "While the AMD Radeon HD 7500G GPU in the Sleekbook 6z are touted as "discrete class graphics," in reality, they're no better than the integrated Intel HD 4000 GPU. Not surprisingly, more graphically taxing titles such as "Batman: Arkham City" are out of reach, but gamers can effectively zap their productivity with games such as "World of Warcraft" and "Street Fighter X Tekken."

      The Sleekbook 6z notched 3,648 during 3DMark06, 1,784 points below the mainstream category average. The Gateway NV57H54u and its Intel HD Graphics 3000 GPU notched 4,454. The Sony VAIO E15 and the Lenovo Ideapad Z580 and their Intel HD Graphics 4000 GPU scored much higher, reaching 5,964 and 5,876. On the "World of Warcraft" benchmark, the Sleekbook 6z averaged 45 fps on autodetect at 1366 x 768. That's certainly playable but slightly below the 50 fps category average. When we cranked the settings to maximum, the Sleekbook 6z's frame rate dropped to 18 fps, missing the 26 fps average."

      Reviews tend to say this has a terrible screen, nice build for the price, good battery life, slow and sluggish - all the HP bloatware doesn't help - according to one review, but the others say it's fine for normal use. Makes me worried....I'm still a bit bitter about my HP mini 311....amazing machine on paper...not so good in real-life!

    • These are not ultrabooks These are sleekbooks as HP called them. I'd love to see an ultrabook (IMO under 4 lbs with min 7 hrs battery) at this price range, I am currently on the market for one

      LOL! O..K....as long as we're clear that is just the requirements you made up! The real "ultrabook" requirements were set by Intel....of course...the entire concept is rather silly....a made up proprietary marketing term. It doesn't have any more meaning than AMD's sleekbook term!

      is that the one with the ION2 so call by nVidia??
      I remembered that... i have the "ION ONE" 11.6"....it is turtle..... spec looks fantastic on paper but did not even shoot a complex PPT file properly...shame.....

      I've fortunately seen enough sleekbooks on sale here to know that they are different than ultrabooks .. or else I would've wasted more time researching stats. Namely... no SSDs.. which I find is one of the bigger differentiation from a laptop. Ultrabooks are suppose to have smaller/lighter and more battery life.. but that's not always the case.. but naming it ultrabook is a good starting point to filter out certain criterias..

      No, this was the same on you had...the first ion.....beautiful silver 11.6......I had one of the very first netbooks before that....an acer 6 cell 8.9 inch....I was perfectly happy with that acer except for three nagging issues: 1.bilingual keyboard 2.would like but didn't need more screen/resolution 3.would like to play higher def vids

      The mini 311 seemed PERFECT. Beautiful look, 6 cell battery despite the sleek look (almost like an early ultrabook), the ion to play hi def, and the bigger screen/resolution.

      The only thing it delivered was pretty good battery life (especially considering it had a built in flush battery!) and the bigger screen. No complaints there. I knew of course it also had the bilingual, so I wont' complain about that. The hi def was a mixed bag...it did run some 1080p and some 720p with the right software and format.

      BUT....just like you....I found it ranged from a little slow, to unbelievably SLOW! I knew instantly.....despite running xp like my acer, that is was SLOWER than the acer! That little 8.9 acer was surpisingly snappy....the HP.....was always stuck in the mud! Just clicking on menus and doing simple tasks was...sluggish, and then if some more complex process started up.....oh man....be prepared to just sit there. Then you add in the TERRIBLE trackpad....like a lot of people on 311 forums, I desperately tried completely unrelated touchpad drivers from other manufacturers!! Ended up using either a Dell driver, or generic windows driver and disabling all multitouch, and all tapping! That gave me BASIC functionality when needed....scrolling with the scrollbar was still hit and miss and best avoided. Accidental triggering still occured - even with touchfreeze installed! UGH.....I wanted to love that mini, and kept trying right till the end, but boy it sucked.

      ON a side note, curious.....anyone want to say what they'd pay for a used 1201pn? It is one of the ion 2....the positive, it has a 12 inch screen, looks nice, it has an english keyboard, and this is supposed to have a good/new battery. On the bad side, the 1201pn had a regular atom n450 (no faster than the first atoms!), and yeah ion2...but if you're not gaming....is it really all that useful? I was thinking of picking one up, to tide me over until I could find/afford an ultrabook or something else I really want.

    • Left shift key is half size
      but that's the major problem with these french keyboards, they cut the shift buttons down to half to make room for all the stupid accents. it defies logic at to how an english speaker is supposed to touch-type of these monstrosities as it's virtually impossible to left-shift with any regularity.

      I believe ultrabook battery life is only 5 hours minimum...in other words...not much...and a lot of them seem to be just barely meeting that :-( The thing is...I've read conflicting things about the other requirements including the SSD...in fact, I do not think SSD is required...instead they require fast start and and restart times, that traditionally would call for SSD....so of course some are now getting around it with hybrid drives, and I wouldnt' be surprised with things like "instant on", if manufacturers find a way completely around the SSD (they can do it with restart times now....but not with boot I think). On the other hand, there aren't many sleekbooks are there? I assume some have (or will have) SSD....so again....it is somewhat vague...and with all the tweeners coming out (almost ultrabooks), I imagine it may get blurrier yet. In any case, I know there are intel requirements but the guy I was responding to had just seemed to make up his own!

      Yeah...I've been a fast touch typist - trained in a class - for....25 years now! I tried, but I can't hit the shift key or the far-out enter key at high speeds (short fingers doesn't help I think), without making the occasional mistake...which of course...brings everything to a screeching halt :-(

    • But for the AMD model, the hint is that they wont ship it to Quebec. If you send an English keyboard to Quebec you go to jail for a long, long time.
      Actually, they won't ship that item to Quebec because it doesn't have their ECO fee built in to the price. Distinct rules for a distinct society!
