HP TouchSmart tm2 gets Core i5 with Hyperthreading

HP raised the ceiling on the TouchSmart tm2 today by providing an option for a Core i5. The system doesn't advance past the 1.2GHz base clock speed of its regular Core i3 but now supports Hyperthreading and will behave like a quad-core notebook with the right apps. Other options, such as the Mobility Radeon HD 5450 graphics or the maximum 8GB of memory, remain intact.

Picking the Core i5 adds $75 to the minimum $830 price, or $125 when combined with the Mobility Radeon video. A stock system comes outfitted with 4GB of RAM, at least a 320GB hard drive (currently 500GB) and Intel graphics. [via LogicBuy]
