HP made some pre-Computex announcements on Sunday as it revealed plans to release a number of new Windows 8.1 notebooks later this summer, all of which can also be used in some form of tablet mode. The new version of the HP Split x2 still allows the display to detach from its keyboard dock to be used as a big 13.3 inch Windows 8.1 tablet. The keyboard dock also serves as a second battery for the Split x2. The new version has a 500GB hard drive inside the tablet and will also have Intel's Bay Trail processors. It will go on sale in the U.S. June 29 for the starting price of $599.99.
The company has also announced the new ENVY x360 and a new version of its Pavilion x360. Both of these notebooks allow the user to flip their displays 360 degrees so that they can be used as a tablet, a la Lenovo's Yoga series. The Pavilion x360 has a 13.3 inch display while the ENVY x360 has a bigger 15.6 inch monitor. The ENVY x360 is coming out June 11 for the starting price of $679.99. The Pavilion x360 comes out July 8 with an AMD A8 processor for $629.99, while the version with the Intel Core i3 chip inside goes on sale July 20 for the starting price of $599.99.
