Touchsmart tm2 to get Core i3, i5 in June?

HP's convertible notebook, the HP TouchSmart tm2, will soon get a performance upgrade courtesy of Intel's Core i3, Core i5 chips. To date, the 12.1-inch notebook has used a CULV-based, low-power Core 2 Duo processor. According to a German leak, the new notebooks arrive in June, though when they make it to North America remains to be seen.

Any other changes, like to the notebook's capacitive multitouch screen, are not detailed in this leak, though aren't likely to be far-reaching. The current notebook's six-cell battery is currently rated at nine hours of life, but the new chips may change this significantly. That its $950 price remains intact is far less likely, however.
