All Flavours of Laptop at HP's Computex

E-mail Print PDF

Notebooks come in all shapes and sizes at the HP Computex 2014 stand, where the company reveals "unique" two-in-ones and convertible PCs, a new Chromebook and even an Android-powered notebook.

HP Computex"Customers have made it clear that they need devices that better adapt to work and play the way they do,” the company says. “Today, we are announcing the next generation of laptops and two-in-one PCs, along with a new Chromebook that combine power, versatility and design for home and on the go."

Convertible HP notebooks come in two flavours-- the Envy x360 and Pavilion x360, both with 360° display hinges allowing users to switch between notebook, stand, tent or tablet modes. Very reminiscent of the Lenovo Yoga lineup, that.

The Envy x360 is the higher-performance 15.6-inch model with an Intel Core processor, 10-point touchscreen and a "Control Zone" trackpad, while the Pavilion x360 is a 13.3-inch AMD-powered number.

Customers wanting a "detachable" notebook get the Split x2, with a 13.3-inch display one can remove from the keyboard base for use as a Windows 8.1 tablet.

Also interesting are the company's Chrome OS and Android notebooks-- the imaginatively named 11-inch HP Chromebook 11 and the 14-inch SlateBook.

All the above mentioned HP notebooks should be available to retailers from July 2014.
