HP's Pavilion x360 adds Beats Audio (for now) and rugged construction to the expanding field of 11-inch Yoga-likes, but Lenovo's version feels much more upscale.
With their 360-degree rotating screens, the new 13.3-inch Pavilion and 15.6-inch Envy x360 convertibles join the budget-friendly 11.6-inch x360 from earlier this year.
The HP Pavilion X2 comes in both 11- and 13-inch screen sizes, but at $599.99 is it too expensive to compete with other cheaper hybrids also hitting the market this year?
HP revives an 11-inch favorite with the Pavilion TouchSmart 11z, but there are better performance-for-money deals to be had.

If you're looking for a lot of screen real estate and enough power for work and play, the HP Pavilion dv7-6b55dx is a good place to start.
HP's Envy line has always been a reliable high-end PC laptop line, and this new redesign adds some useful features, such as a volume wheel, while keeping the upscale look and feel.
