We have heard that the HP TouchSmart line would be getting new CPUs from the Intel Core 2010 line up a while back. Exactly when we would see the small notebooks get the CPU upgrade was unknown. If you have been waiting for one of these machines running a new Intel Core 2010, it has surfaced on Amazon.
The HP TouchSmart tm2-2050us has a 12.1-inch WXGA LED display. The graphics are powered by Intel integrated HD, which is a bit disappointing. The machine has an aluminum finish with a new riptide design in modern argento.
The big news is that the CPU in the rig is the Intel Core i3-330M at 2.13 GHz. The notebook also runs 4GB of RAM and has a 640GB HDD for storage. Other features include WiFi, HDMI out, VGA out, and a memory card reader. The machine can be pre-ordered for $949.99 with no word on the ship date.
