HP to launch lots of Windows 8 PCs on October 26th

In August, HP announced plans to launch two new Ultrabooks and one notebook-tablet hybrid on October 26th, all of which will have touch screens that will support Microsoft's "Modern" Windows 8 interface. Earlier this month, HP also announced it would release a number of new all-in-one PCs, some of which will have touch screens.

Today, HP revealed its plans to launch a bunch of new laptops and notebook models on Oct 26th. However, these PCs are more conventional with no touch screen support. Venture Beat reports that one of the models is the PC gaming-themed HP Envy Phoenix h9. The case design makes it a little bit like it has some kind of armor and, like lots of gaming PCs, it has some lights inside a see-through portion of the case.

The HP Envy Phoenix h9 has a choice of Intel Core processors inside, with the option to put in either a NVIDIA or AMD graphics card. It also comes with a small SSD drive for quick boot up times; the price of the desktop starts at $899.

In terms of notebooks, HP will release the thin-and-light HP Envy m4 with a 14 inch screen starting at $899. The HP Pavilion Sleekbook 14 will sell for $449, and the HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15 is priced starting at $559. HP is also selling a number of new business desktop and notebook PCs on October 26th.
