CNET First Look
HP adds Core M to its growing hybrid lineupHP's new Pavilion x360 and Envy x360 hybrids offer AMD and Intel CPUs, new colors and a fanless 11-inch model.
[MUSIC] I'm Dan Ackerman and we're her taking a look at HP's convertible back to school laptop line. These are all fold back style hybrids of this sky right here. Here is the Envy x360. The 2015 version. It's a 15.6 inch screen convertible, which is pretty big for one of these. And of course it bends all the way back like this or down into a tablet like this. You can also do sort of the kiosk mode or the, or the table tent. And this guy, you're gonna be able to get, current generation Intel Core F5 and i7 processors. It's got a full HD IPS screen. It looks good from any angle like that. And it is one of the first systems with Bang and Olufsen audio software that loosens to the speakers of each individual size and model, and gives you some audio tuning that's privy to it and makes it sound better. You also get backlit keys and even discrete graphics from Nvidia. That's something you very rarely see in a non-gaming laptop these days. And very rarely see in a convertible. And this guy is going to start at a little under $700. HP's other Back-to-School convertible is the Pavilion x360. These are all going to run +/- $500, depending on your configuration. This is 13-inch version in an i3 or i5. Against yet a regular HD that's 1,366 by 768 or a full HD 1,920 by 1,080 panel. These are all touch screens because these are of course convertible laptops like this that form into kind of a kiosk or a tablet mode. I think much more interesting than this 13 inch version is the 11 inch version which I have right over here. And this guy runs Intel's new core end processor. Technically the same processor that's in the new 12 inch MacBook and a bunch of other laptops and, of course, this is a fanless design so it's gonna be very quiet and run very cool and again. Flips over like this and you can turn it into a little tablet and take it with you. These should all be available in the back to school September time frame, again around $500, plus or minus 100 or so depending on your configuration options.
