HP Pavilion x360: A Yoga-like convertible laptop (hands-on pictures)

Borrowing a design trait from the Lenovo Yoga, the HP Pavilion X360 uses the same flip-over design to transform from laptop to tablet.

One of the few laptop-style devices at MWC 2014 is the HP Pavilion x360, an 11.6-inch hybrid that switches between clamshell and tablet modes thanks to a 360-degree hinge.

Despite its small size, the Pavilion x360 has a full array of ports, including an SD slot, HDMI port, and 3 USB ports (two shown here, plus another on the other side).

On the inside, you the same Beats Audio technology as the rest of HP's consumer laptop line, up to 8GB of RAM, and a 500GB hybrid hard drive. There's also 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Unlike the pricier Yogas, HP's version starts at $399, which means it runs Intel Celeron or current-gen Atom chips, rather than the more mainstream Core i-series CPUs.

The system weighs around 3 pounds and is 21.9mm thick.
