CES 2017: HP introduces new EliteBook x360 and Spectre x360 convertibles
“The EliteBook x360 is being touted as the world’s slimmest business convertible”
HP has kicked off its CES journey with the launch of a couple of convertibles – the EliteBook x360 and Spectre x360. Similar to their predecessors, the new convertibles also sport 360-degree rotatable hinges, which allow them to be used in several modes like laptop, tablet, stand, and tent. The brand is touting the EliteBook X360 as the world’s slimmest business convertible, and adds that it sports the longest battery life in a convertible – up to 16 hours and 30 minutes.
The HP EliteBook x360 sports a CNC aluminium unibody frame, and is designed to pass twelve MIL-STD 810G tests. It features up to a 13.3-inch UWVA UHD display with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass. The device offers up to an Intel Core i7 processor with Intel HD Graphics 620, 16GB of RAM, up to 360GB of SSD storage, and up to Windows 10 Pro 64. The convertible comes with optional NFC, one USB Type-C port with Thunderbolt, an IR camera for Windows Hello, a fingerprint sensor, and HP Active Pen stylus support.
The new HP Spectre x360 flaunts longer battery life – from 9.5 hours to 12.75 hours compared to its predecessor. The convertible offers a nearly borderless 15.6-inch 4K display. It comes with a 7th-gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 256GB of solid state storage. The device features NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics with 2GB of dedicated video memory. It comes with dual Bang & Olufsen speakers, infrared webcam with Windows Hello support, HP fast charge, and a USB Type-C port with Thunderbolt.
The HP EliteBook x360 will be available by the end of this month, but there’s no word regarding its pricing at the moment. The Spectre x360 will go on pre-order in the US on January 3rd at the starting price of $1,499,
