Mobile World Congress 2014: HP Pavilion x360 hinged-hybrid fights Lenovo Yoga

1:32 /

HP's Windows 8 hybrid is a cheaper version of Lenovo's offering

Hello. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET here at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. We're taking a look at the HP Pavilion x360. Now why is it called the x360? I hear you try. Well, it's because this hinge moves on a 360-degree angle, and that means that you can use this Windows 8 hybrid in a number of ways. The design is pretty similar to Lenovo's Yoga hybrid tablet range. You can use it in regular laptop mode like this. You can bend it around, making a kind of tent shape, which is pretty good for maybe touchscreen games or watching movies, and you can fold it completely flat to use it like a tablet. You can see that when it's folded flat in this tablet mode, the keys and trackpad are still accessible on the other side, but HP tells me that when you're using it like a tablet, these buttons wouldn't be active. This is an 11.6-inch screen. You can have up to 8 gigabytes of RAM in this thing. Now, the good news is unlike Lenovo's Yoga hybrids, this thing is pretty affordable. It will set you back starting at $399 and for that starting price, you get an Intel Pentium processor. So it's not super powerful, but it's quite portable, and it might be capable of enough processing grant to get what you need done. It comes in red and what HP calls smoke silver and it's gonna be on sale on the 26th of February. What do you think? Let me know, and check out CNET.com for a lot more from Mobile World Congress.
