Hybrids tend to be on the smaller side, but HP's 15-inch Spectre x360 bucks that trend. The new model has a smaller screen bezel and a smaller footprint, with a bigger glass trackpad. It's a little heavier thanks to a discrete GPU option of the Nvidia GeForce 940 MX and a bigger battery to support the only display size of 4K UHD.

Starts at $1,249 in the US (about £1,020 or AU$1,740); available in February 2017.

Another line expanding in the 360-degree club comes from Dell, which takes its XPS 13 clamshell with almost bezel-free display and gives it a full-angle hinge. Under the hood it uses the low-voltage Y versions of seventh-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. Display options top off at 3,200x1,800-pixel resolution.

Starts at $999 (about £800 or AU$1,380); available now in the US.

New to the company's business line, Dell's 13-inch Latitude 5285 uses the Microsoft Surface-like, tablet-first design plus a snap-on keyboard with a multiangle kickstand. It weighs about 2 pounds (900 grams), and includes seventh-generation versions of Intel's IT-minded Core vPro processors and an HD Gorilla Glass display.

Starts at $899 (about £725 or AU$1,239); available in the US in February 2017.

A lot of tablet-first hybrids emulate the Microsoft Surface Pro, but Lenovo's 12-inch Miix challenges it head-to-head. While it offers only Intel HD Integrated Graphics 620 rather than the Surface's Iris option, in all other ways it matches or exceeds Microsoft's current lineup: up to seventh-generation Core i7, Lenovo's Active Pen with 4,096 levels of pressure sensivity and a slightly higher-resolution 2,880x1,920-pixel display, to name a few. Plus, the keyboard's included.

No pricing as yet, but available in April 2017.

While Lenovo's business ThinkPads mostly saw basic refreshes, the company added a new size in its ThinkPad Yoga line, 13.3 inches, along with the seventh-generation processor updates.

Starts at $1,265 (about £1,030, AU$1,760), available March 2017.

ThinkPad Yoga 370

Caption by / Photo by Lenovo

The Elitebook series is new to the hybrid crowd; HP redesigned its 15-inch model, boosting the 180-degree hinge to 360 degrees like Lenovo's Yoga series. HP seems to enjoy playing around with the screen articulation in its EliteBook models -- can you say "Revolve?" -- but this follows the more mainstream foldover trend. The new 13.3-inch hybrid has MacBook-like unibody construction, will run on as-yet unspecified seventh-generation Core processors (including i7), incorporate Bang & Olufson audio, support the HP Active Pen and offer display options up to a 4K UHD touchscreen. It offers a large complement of business-oriented options as well, including HP's Sure View privacy mode, which polarizes the display so that it can only be viewed dead-on, and the ability to sign on with an IR camera, fingerprint sensor or smart-card reader.

We don't have pricing, but it's scheduled to be available this month.
