HP moves to a simple magnetic hinge for its inexpensive tablet/laptop combo.
The PCs in this list represent what I consider the current best examples in computing design, and they're more than just the sum of their parts.
From an fanless 11-inch hybrid to a budget 17-inch laptop, HP offers a wide variety of processors, screen types and colors.
The HP Stream 11 aims to be a cloud-focused laptop, much like a Chromebook, but with the added utility of Windows 8. It's a rock-bottom budget laptop, so don't get your hopes up, but the battery life is impressive.
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.
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.
New HP Envy x2 models pack a kickstand and a keyboard that falls off at the drop of a hat.
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.
The HP Pavilion Chromebook 14 advances the argument for Chrome as a low-cost mainstream computing environment, but the laptop's most noteworthy feature is a slightly bigger screen.
This near-ultrabook packs in processing and graphics power, along with an optical drive, at a reasonable price. The only real knock against the Pavilion m6 is that some of HP's higher-end systems hardly cost more.
