Hewlett-Packed is putting a bit of polish on its Pavilion x360 family of 2-in-1 convertibles, which are available in 11.6-inch, 14-inch, and 15.6-inch form-factors. The new PCs will also be joined by a couple of new standalone displays.
The smallest member of the family is the Pavilion x360 11, which features an 11.6-inch display (1366×768), a quad-core Intel Pentium Silver N5000 processor and 4GB of RAM, while a 128GB M.2 SSD and an available microSD slot handle all of your storage needs. The Pavilion x360 11 is all about portability, as witnessed by its relatively lightweight 2.67-lb frame. According to HP, the device can last over 10 hours on a charge.
HP has included dual speakers tuned by B&O along with its own Wide Vision HD camera in adding to a dual-array microphone. The convertible, however, doesn’t come with the usual Windows 10 Home preinstalled, and instead features Windows 10 Home in S Mode, which provides a more restrictive (but also more secure) computing experience.
Moving up on the range, we have the 3.5-lb Pavilion x360 14, which brings a lot more power to the table. Rather than miserly Pentium processors, this mid-range convertible is available with up an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor and up to 16GB of onboard RAM. Dual internal storage configurations are available and users can opt for Intel integrated graphics, or discrete GPU options from NVIDIA (GeForce MX130 or MX250). Those GPUs drive a 14-inch Full HD display which “micro-edge” bezels on three sides (there’s a rather large bezel at the bottom of the display). The Pavilion x360 14 can operate for up to 11 hours and 30 minutes on a charge.
Finally, there’s the 4.2-lb Pavilion x360 15, which can be configured with up to a 15.6-inch FHD display backed by a discrete AMD Radeon RX 535 GPU. It also can be had with up to an 8th generation Core i7 processor and will last over 10 hours on a charge.
HP has announced a trio of new colors for the revamped convertibles including Cloud Blue, Pale Gold and natural Silver. According to the company, the Pavilion x360 11 will be available in June priced from $399, while the Pavilion x360 14 will debit in April priced from $499. The Pavilion x360 15 will make an appearance in April with a starting price of $799.
Not to be left out, HP has also announced to new display alongside its refreshed convertibles. The HP 27f 4K Display features micro-edge bezels with a UHD resolution (as its name implies) and adjustable stand. The HP 34f Curved Display, on the other hand, has a QHD resolution. At this time, we don’t have any detailed information on specs, pricing or availability for the two displays.
