sleekbook

A marketing term developed by Hewlett-Packard to refer to AMD-powered ultraportable laptops that fit between Intel's ultrabook designation and the more traditional notebook or laptop.  While HP's sleekbooks share many similarities with ultrabooks, the company created the sleekbook name to give it more leeway in creating new thin and light notebook computers that don't meet all of Intel's restrictive specifications for ultrabooks. 

The most noticeable difference between ultrabooks and sleekbooks is that sleekbook models utilize AMD processors instead of Intel's Sandy Bridge and newer Ivy Bridge processors.  HP's Envy Sleekbooks also cost less than their HP Envy Ultrabook counterparts, and while they tend to be a bit thicker and heavier, sleekbooks do offer larger screens at 14" and 15.6" than the typical 13" screen size of an ultrabook.
