IFA 2012: HP Unveils Innovative Multitouch Hybrid PC and Ultrabooks
HP unveiled three new laptops and ultrabook units. Read on for details!
HP unveiled three new laptop/ultrabook models this week. Here are the details:
BRACKNELL, August 30, 2012 — HP today announced three consumer notebooks featuring multitouch displays, including a uniquely designed hybrid PC that gives people more choice in how they access information.
The HP ENVY x2 is a powerful and ultrathin hybrid PC with the advantages of two devices in one.
As a notebook that doubles as a tablet, the HP ENVY x2 has a detachable screen that becomes a full tablet when separated from the keyboard via a seamless magnetic latch. Customers no longer have to choose between a product that lets them create rich content and another that lets them enjoy entertainment on the go—they can have both in one device.
The HP SpectreXT TouchSmart Ultrabook™ and HP ENVY TouchSmart Ultrabook™ 4 bring the intuitive power of touch to ultramobile PCs.
“Consumers want the flexibility to move between creating rich documents and losing themselves in a great movie,” said Louis Perrin, director, Personal Computer Consumer Division, HP EMEA. “With the HP ENVY x2, customers can have it all, and the touch experience on these three new notebooks brings out the best of Windows 8.”
These notebook PCs are the first HP products announced with Microsoft® Windows® 8; additional notebooks, desktops and tablets will be announced later in 2012.
HP ENVY x2—the right device for the right time, every time
The HP ENVY x2 solves the “Do I bring my notebook or tablet?” dilemma. Consumers get the power of a notebook and the freedom of a tablet in one stylish, lightweight device.
Featuring a sleek aluminum finish and an innovative hinge with magnets that smoothly guide the tablet into place, the HP ENVY x2 weighs 1.4 kg.(1) When separated, the tablet portion weighs just 0.71 kg.
Customers can interact directly with the optimized Windows 8 touch interface on the HP ENVY x2’s vivid 29.4 cm (11.6”) HD(2) touch display. Ultrawide viewing angles and a bright, 400-nit In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel provide a superb visual experience indoors and outdoors, while an HD webcam on the front and an 8-megapixel camera on the back capture high-quality photos and video. The HP ENVY x2 boasts up to 14 hours battery life with an intelligent charging mechanism.
The HP ENVY x2 also features Beats AudioTM for the best-sounding, richest audio experience available on a PC. An optional stylus offers added creativity, giving customers the freedom to write, draw and navigate with added accuracy.
The HP ENVY x2 also makes sharing and staying connected with friends and family a breeze. A new HP Connected Photo(3) application seamlessly syncs photos across multiple devices and offers basic editing options and instant-sharing capabilities for social networks. The HP ENVY x2 uses solid-state memory for improved reliability and faster startup times. Near Field Communication (NFC) technology lets users share content, including photos, contacts and URLs, with a simple tap.Pages: 1 2
