HP today announced a new lineup of sleek consumer PCs including:
- Two new HP ENVY x2 detachable PCs designed to deliver a notebook experience for productivity, but quickly transform to a tablet for entertainment and apps.
- The HP Pavilion x2 detachable PC designed for customers who want to simplify with a single device that transforms from tablet to laptop.
- The HP Stream, a Windows notebook that leverages cloud storage for access to digital content on the go.
HP further extends its HP ENVY portfolio with the addition of two new HP ENVY x2 detachable PCs. Available in 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch diagonal form factors, the HP ENVY x2 is powered by the latest-generation Intel® Core™ M processor and is touted to have great battery life. A fabric-covered, backlit Bluetooth keyboard provides flexibility for users, whether it’s attached or not, and covers the screen for protection on the go.
Music lovers will appreciate access to more music, videos and photos on the go with 500GB hybrid hard drive storage in the tablet on the HP Envy x2 15-inch or up to 256 GB of high-performance SSD on the HP Envy x2 13-inch, along with BeatsAudio™.
HP also announced the new HP Pavilion x2, a full-featured 10-inch diagonal Windows tablet that shifts to a full-featured laptop with a detachable dual-purpose keyboard/cover that both protects the screen and serves as a multi-position stand. The HP Pavilion x2 is a portable, 2-in-1 PC, powered by the latest-generation Intel Atom™ processor, and features front-firing speakers with DTS sound and a battery that, on paper, lasts up to 11.75 hours.
The HP Stream is a lightweight notebook that specializes with the cloud, ideal for someone who wants their files online constantly. It includes 100GB of Microsoft OneDrive storage for free. (OneDrive is currently available only at 30GB for free for normal users.) The notebook comes with a fanless design, 14” HD Display, BeatsAudio and supposedly a powerful battery to satisfy the traveler.
HP will showcase a portfolio of consumer PC’s and printers at GITEX this year. The highlight, the HP Pavilion x360, an affordable touch convertible PC that becomes a tablet with its 360 degree hinge. HP Deskjet Ink Advantage 4515 e-All-in-One printer offers affordable printing from a smartphone, tablet or PC. The HP Envy Beats Special Edition All-in-One PC will also be showcased.
