HP Announces Two New x360 Hybrid Notebooks

HP launched its 11-inch convertible Pavilion x360 in February and now the company is adding two new convertibles to its x360 portfolio, the HP Pavilion x360 13, as well as the HP Envy x360.

The HP Pavilion x360 boasts a 13.3-inch display, up to 8 GB of RAM and is powered by AMD’s A6/A8/A10 CPUs as well as Intel’s Core i3 and Core i5 chips. Harddrive storage ranges from 500 GB to 1 TB depending on your configuration. Of course, the stand out feature here is that the device’s screen is on a 360 degree hinge that allows the laptop to be positioned in numerous different ways depending on your current activities.

HP is also taking the x360 branding to its Envy line. Envy is HP’s higher-end line of computers that falls below Spectre but sits above Pavilion. This x360 packs a 15.6-inch display, Intel’s Core i-series of CPUs (i3 to i7), up to 8 GB of RAM, and up to 1 TB of storage as well as a hybrid storage option. Again, it has that all-important 360 degree hinge for flexibility in positioning.

Starting price for the 13-inch x360 is set at $629.99 for the AMD models or $599 for the Intel-based versions. The Envy 15.6 will start at $679.

    not all i7's are created equal. An i7 on a desktop will crush the best i7 on a laptop.... my guess is that intel and HP are just throwing the term around to appeal to the naive nerd. I'd rather have an AMD option ...as I am sure the price would drop significantly.
