HP has today announced a refreshed lineup of convertible PCs – the Pavilion x360 15, and a smaller variant called the Pavilion x360 14. The new HP offerings come equipped with 11th Gen Intel Tiger Lake processors with the integrated Iris Xe graphics onboard and also reduce some heft compared to their predecessors.
The entry-level configuration of the HP Pavilion x360 with an Intel Core i3 processor is priced at $749 and will be up for grabs starting today. You can go up to an Intel Core i7 CPU too, but that variant would go on sale next month. As for the Pavilion x360 14, pricing details are still under the wraps, but it will be available later this spring.
HP says the Pavilion x360 duo is its most sustainable consumer laptop to date, with each device using an ocean-bound plastic bottle in its construction and recycled aluminum in the keyboard deck. Additionally, thanks to slimmed-down bezels, the new HP offerings are also touted to offer the highest screen-to-body ratio for a mainstream HP convertible at 88.92%, and also happens to be the lightest one too.
Talking about screens, the HP Pavilion x360 15 comes fitted with a 15.6-inch FHD touchscreen panel, while the one on its smaller sibling cuts down the screen real estate to around 14-inch. Plus, they also bring support for Wi-Fi 6 for faster connectivity, while authentication is handled by a fingerprint sensor.
