Hewlett Packard has spent the past few years trying to figure out how it fits into the modern world of computing. While it might still be one of the biggest PC sellers in the world, its influence along with the entire PC industry has diminished from its peak. The company has even announced plans to split into two separate entities, only one of which will still produce consumer PCs. But that doesn’t mean you can count HP out.
Take the newly announced Pavilion x2 notebook, for example. Ready and waiting for the release of Windows 10 in just a few weeks time, the x2 is a hybrid laptop/tablet device with a magnetic hinge to allow for a seamless transition between its different states. Like most hybrids for this type, it can also be configured in stand and tent mode for more passive viewing.
Set to hit stores in white, red and silver, the new laptop will weigh just 1.29 pounds and will come with a 10-inch, HD IPS display. It will be powered by an Intel Atom processor, according to WinSuperSite, as well as 2GB of RAM, and will be backed up by 64GB of onboard storage.
The launch is slated for the 21st July, with a $300 price tag.
To make sure it’s offering a comprehensive lineup for the new operating system, HP is also launching a pair of Envy laptops. The first will come in 14 and 15.6-inch flavors, and will have either the latest generation of Intel Core i5 or i7 chips, as well as an AMD FX option. Screen choices will include everything up to QHD, so those who want impressive pixel density will be able to have it.
Pricing starts at $800 for those packing Intel hardware, while AMD is a bit cheaper.
The power laptop of the group though is the 17.3 inch HP Envy, which packs a 5th generation Core i7 CPU, a dedicated Nvidia 940M or GTX 950M GPU and a full HD display with optional touch support. It will start at just shy of $1,000.
