"With the world's smallest business convertible, the first detachable and tablet with an integrated privacy screen, the widest curved all-in-one, and other industry-leading innovations, our new Elite and Envy portfolios create unrivalled premium PC experiences". Not only are these consumer notebooks offering slimmer bezels than ever, but they also feature clever design tricks, an optional privacy mode and performance-optimizing software. With the optional touchscreen, you can write or highlight on web pages and also use Windows Ink.
The HP Elite series is going to be bolstered by the HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3, HP Elite x2 1013 G3, HP EliteBook 1050 G1, and HP EliteOne AiO G2, whereas the upgraded HP Envy series has additions like the new HP Envy 13 and Envy 17, HP Envy x360 13, HP Envy x360 15, HP Envy Curved AiO 34, and HP Envy Desktop.
See that device at HP here. HP isn't sharing too many detailed specs just yet, basically only revealing that it features Intel's 8th generation Core T-series processor lineup and up to GeForce GTX 1050 graphics.
HP's huge assortment of new devices include Envy all-in-one curved PCs with six-core Intel Core processors and discrete GeForce GTX 1050 graphics. It starts at $1,050, with 12GB of RAM and a 1TB 7200-rpm hard drive.
Finally, there'll be the HP ENVY Desktop. This covers a couple of new Envy laptops and their convertible counterparts, as well as a brand new AiO. It looks somewhat like a wood-grain or fingerprint, but it's actually inspired by a high-end kitchen knife.
HP ENVY x360 15 is expected to be available in May at HP.com for a starting price of $749.99 (AMD version) and $869.99 (Intel version). That's why HP packed the ENVY portfolio with incredible features that go beyond basic performance and battery improvements. So if you're watching a movie, you can set it to a quieter mode so your machine's fans don't distract, or set your laptop to be cooler for use in your lap. It features up to 18 hours of battery life, 4G LTE capabilities, and active pen support with proximity alert to notify when the pen is left behind.
A close-up of HP's new Damascus design language. The HP Envy Curved AiO 34 will go on sale sometime later this year, while customers in the U.S. will be able to pick the HP Envy AiO 27 later this month with a starting price of $1,399 (approximately Rs. 94,500). While the AMD variant runs on a Ryzen 7 with Radeon Vega graphics.
HP rates this model for up to 12 hours and 45 minutes of usage, which we look forward to testing with the Laptop Mag Battery Test.
HP ENVY x360 15 is one of the most unique creations by HP which will support both touch and pen.
The Envy 13 might not be part of HP's flagship Spectre line, but it basically should be.
As with the three previous iterations of the Envy series, the Envy 13 includes a lifting hinge that raises and pitches the keyboard base at a slight angle for a more comfortable typing position.
HP also has several new devices in its Envy line. I tested it out at a media event last week, and was impressed by how well it worked. HP says it has optional Sure View tech and up to 11 hours of runtime per charge.
