Following in the flippable footprint of the 11.6-inch Pavilion x360, HP today announced the addition of a 13.3-inch Pavilion x360 and a 15.6-inch Envy x360 to the line.
Like the original, these new convertible laptops have hinges that allow the touchscreens to rotate 360 degrees taking it from laptop to tablet as well as allowing you a couple other position options in between.
Available in the US in early July, the 13.3-inch Pavilion x360 starts at $630 and can be configured with an A6, A8, or A10 AMD processor; up to 8GB of memory; 500GB or 1TB of storage; and a battery life of up to 6.5 hours. No word on what the screen resolution is but I'd bet it's 1,366x768 pixels.
If you'd rather have Intel chips, you can pick up a 13.3-inch x360 with a Core i3 or Core i5 processor toward the end of July starting at $600. Battery life improves with those, too, with estimates of around 8.25 hours. Regardless of processor, though, HP says the x360 will weigh about 4.3 pounds (2kg) and measure 0.88 inches (22mm) thick.
The bigger and more stylish HP Envy x360 (pictured at the top of this post) will start at $680. Configurations will feature Intel Core i3, i5, or i7 processors; up to 8GB of memory; up to 1TB of storage including a hybrid drive option; and will get up to 7 hours of battery life. Again, no word on screen resolution, but it will likely be 1,366x768 pixels too.
The body is slightly thicker, but still less than an inch at 0.93 inch (23mm), and it weighs 5.8 pounds (2.6kg). The HP Envy x360 will also feature HP's ControlZone trackpad, which is a super-wide touchpad with support for Windows 8 gestures. That means you don't need to touch the screen to slide through open apps, close windows, launch the Charm bar, and many other things -- handy.
