HP Pavilion x360 (11-inch, 2015)

HP's new colorful back-to-school laptops and hybrids emphasize customization

The new back-to-school laptops and hybrids from HP emphasis flexibility, and offer a wide array of options for components, features, and even colors. Nearly all the products announced on April 22 are available with Intel or AMD processors, and with HD (1,366x768) or Full HD (1,920x1,080) displays, in touch or non-touch versions, and many start right around $500, which will be good news for back-to-school shoppers.

Colorful hybrids

The Pavilion x360 line of fold-back hybrids has been updated with new 11-inch and 13-inch models. Of those, the 11-inch is the more interesting, as it moves up to Intel's new Core M processors, the much-talked-about chip that powers Apple's 12-inch MacBook, among other laptops and hybrids. Older Celeron and Pentium chips are also available.

The 11-inch Pavilion x360 has a fanless design, a key feature in many Core M systems, and will come in several colors, including silver, red, purple and green. The display, while a touch screen, is a lower-resolution 1,366x768 panel, and the memory can go up to 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD.
