HP, never one to waste words, is releasing its straightforward HP 14-inch Laptop PC this October. The PC, which is most assuredly coming in a laptop form factor, will be available at Walmart. There's no word on whether other retailers will be getting it.

Until more becomes known about the 14-inch lap topper, here's what you can expect for internals: A Qualcommm Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 processor, a Qualcomm Adreno 618 GPU, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of eMMC storage. If you're a work-from-home-aholic and need a personal machine with a camera, HP's latest will include a Wide Vision 720p HD camera with temporal noise reduction and integrated dual array digital microphones. The laptop will also pack Windows 11 Home.

The laptop looks like a direct competitor against the new Samsung Galaxy Book Go, which features the same processor, 14-inch full HD display, and also 128GB of storage. But unlike Samsung's laptop this one does have a touchscreen.

HP also refers to this laptop as its "first ARM-powered mainstream Windows laptop with 4G LTE (optional)," which is a unique milestone.

  • A TouchScreen??!!? holy smokes. I guess I should express my gratitude in exchange for the usual gripe that complains when they don't offer touchscreen.
  • HP usually does provide touchscreen across all product lines, including their budget lineups. The reason I bought their Pavilion laptop for my kid, because no other maker offered a touchscreen for $600.
  • Now with better ARM support on Windows 11 with ARM64EC solution and x64 emulation, we will see more ARM laptops coming
  • Walmart app shows this laptop for $479.00.
