HP announced two consumer notebooks featuring multitouch displays and a uniquely designed hybrid PC – a notebook that doubles as a tablet, thus giving 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 now have both in one device.
The HP ENVY TouchSmart Ultrabook 4 brings the intuitive power of touch to ultramobile PCs. While the HP Pavilion TouchSmart Sleekbook is targeted at the more cost-conscious customers who require mobility and are more flexible on technology requirements.
“Consumers want the flexibility to move between creating rich documents and losing themselves in a great movie,” said Rajiv Srivastava, VP and GM – Printing and Personal Systems Group, HP India. “With the HP ENVY x2, customers can have it all, and the touch experience on these two new notebooks brings out the best of Windows 8.”
In the desktop category, HP also introduced a new consumer All-in-One PC with Advanced Touch Technology and an Ultra-slim Design and will be launching tablets with the Microsoft Windows 8 in the near future.
