Here at the 2014 edition of CES, PC maker HP has just announced a bunch of new laptops and desktops, hoping to inject some new life into its PC lineup with the new additions they’ve just unleashed upon the world. Let’s start with a roundup of their notebook reveals.
First up, we have the HP Pro x2 410, a notebook whose display detaches from its keyboard base, allowing you to use the display as a standalone tablet. Running Windows 8.1, the x2 is powered by an Intel Core i3/i5 processor, an 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 display, 4GB of RAM, up to 256GB of hard drive space and Intel HD Graphics 4200. The x2 410 is currently available and can be had for under $899.
Next, we move over to the more traditional notebook form factor, sans removable display, in the form of the HP 210 G1. Loaded with Windows 7 or 8.1 and weighing roughly 3.3 pounds, the G1 wields an Intel Core i3 processor, an 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 screen, a max of 8GB of RAM and 500GB of storage, an optional DVD burner and more. The G1 comes in touch and non-touch varieties.
Moving on, we have the bulkier but beefier HP 350 G1 (pictured above), a notebook which wears a 15.6-inch 1366 x 768 screen, Intel CPUs ranging from Celeron to Core i7, RAM that tops out at 16GB and hard drive space that can be maxed out to 1TB. Gamers also have the option of outfitting the G1 with dedicated AMD Radeon HD 8670M graphics, though those not inclined to game on a G1 can opt for integrated Intel graphics instead. The 350 G1 is on the market now and starts at $399.
Now, onto the desktops. For starters, we have the HP Slate 21 Pro, an Android-powered all in one desktop PC running Android 4.3 Jellybean. With an Nvidia Tegra 4 quad-core processor for an engine, the Slate 21 Pro is accompanied by a 21.5-inch 1920 x 1080 IPS display, 16GB of flash storage, 2GB of RAM, and more, though USB 3.0 ports are absent.
Next up, we revisit tradition with HP’s new 200 G1 desktop, a rig based on a tower form factor that runs Intel Celeron and Pentium processors. Shipping with either Windows 7 or 8.1, the 200 G1 can pack up to 8GB of RAM, up to 1TB of storage, Intel integrated graphics, an optical drive, card reader, and more.
Next item on the docket is the HP 205 all in one desktop, which runs Windows 8.1 and is powered by an 18.5-inch 1366 x 768 display and AMD hardware in the form of an E1-2500 dual-core processor. Memory tops out at 8GB and storage can be upgraded to 2TB. Graphics comes courtesy of an AMD Radeon HD 8240 chip.
Moving on, we have the HP ProOne 400, a 19.5-inch 1600 x 900 all in one desktop running Windows and driven by Intel Pentium and Core processors. The ProOne 400 can pack up to 16GB of RAM and a max 2TB of hard drive space, though gamers should stay away, as only integrated Intel graphics are available.
Pricing information and release dates aren’t available on all the newly announced HP gear.
