HP launches powerful trio of PCs
By Digital News Asia January 9, 2017
- 4K screens, bigger batteries and loud audio are the main improvements in this year’s line-up
- Wide range of uses caters to those who need it for work and entertainment
HP HAS debuted three new PCs that are built for work, home or on the go at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017.
The new HP Elitebook x360 wraps a powerfully thin yet light design inside a 13.3in display convertible that is claimed to be the world’s thinnest business convertible, measuring just 1.49cm thin. Despite its thin profile, it packs a large enough battery that HP claims to last up to over 16 hours on a charge.
There is an optional 4K UHD display and pen support for those who yearn for something more than full HD.
The second generation HP Spectre x360 features a 15.6inch screen that is said to be the most powerful in the Spectre line of laptops. It now features a bigger battery that allows up to 12 hours of usage, providing sufficient power for its micro-edge 4K display.
The new Spectre will feature the latest Intel Core processors coupled with NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics and speakers tuned by audio experts Bang & Olufsen.
Lastly HP introduced Envy Curved All-In-One 34 PC that features the world’s widest curved screen, measuring 34in in size with WQHD resolution. Its unique design makes the display appear that it is “floating”above its integrated four-speaker sound bar that is tuned by Bang & Olufsen.
HP says its HP Spectre x360 and Envy Curved All-In-One 34 will have starting prices of US$1,279.99 and US$1,729.99. No price has been announced for the HP EliteBook x360.
At press time, HP had not announced the availability of the three new PCs in the local market.
