HP has been launching some really good laptops recently, and they have just announced the new HP EliteBook x360 and Spectre x360 that are two new convertibles in their own different line-ups.
The HP EliteBook x360 is a business convertible laptop that is just 14.9mm thin. You can consider it a fusion between the HP Spectre and HP EliteBook Folio as it combines the both; borrowing the powerful design from the Spectre and EliteBook Folio’s capabilities.
The EliteBook x360 will be running on Windows 10 Pro which means you will get all the HP Elite enterprise security features here. It also has a great battery life of up to 17 hours which is quite good for a convertible.
It also has dedicated conferencing keys, powerful audio system and you can optionally upgrade to a 13.3-inch diagonal 4K display for better business meeting utility.
The webcam comes with an IR camera and is fully Windows Hello-compliant. You also get a touchscreen with pen support so you can use Windows Ink to its fullest extent.
There’s a bunch of extra proprietary security features from HP as well, like the HP WordWise app for smartphones that will help you manage the PC and offer tamper protection.
HP Spectre x360 is a 15.6-inch powerful convertible with some serious power under the hood. You get an unspecified 7th generation Intel Core i7 processor which can support 4K video playback.
You can choose a storage of up to 1TB and it uses a PCIe SSD for faster storage. There’s also the option for an NVIDIA GeForce 940MX – 2GB graphics card for better graphics performance.
When it comes to audio, you get two front facing speakers tuned by Bang & Olufsen; proving some great audio experience. The Spectre also comes with an IR camera which is fully compliant with Windows Hello.
