Two technology titans, Hewlett-Packard and Sony, made a big splash this week with the announcement of notebook families that boast touch-screen technology. Sony's Fit 14 and Fit 15 models feature either a15-inch full-high-definition display (1920 by 1080) or 14-inch HD+ display (1600 by 900), optional Nvidia graphics with up to 2GB of memory, faster boot-up and data access with hybrid hard-disk drive and solid-state drive (SSD) options for Fit 14 and Fit 15 models, and optical drives (including Blu-ray Disc writing options as well). HP's ProBook Series notebooks are aimed at small and midsize businesses. The ProBook 400 Series notebooks are offered in 17.3-, 15.6-, 14- and 13.3-inch flat-panel screen sizes, and include a hybrid hard drive option that HP claims offers the responsiveness of a SSD with the capacity of a traditional hard drive. It also features connectivity options that include 4G wireless wide-area network and HP Client Security. On the lower end, HP's 200 Series business notebooks are available in 15.6- and 14-inch screen sizes and offer a range of wireless capabilities. Take a look at these new notebooks.
