HP today took the wraps off of the new Pavilion x360 14. This convertible laptop brings Intel's 10th Gen processors, Wi-Fi 6, and it's the first Pavilion laptop with optional LTE connectivity. It's priced for those on a budget as well, starting at $499.
Compared to the previous generation, the new Pavilion x360 14 brings some modern design updates, including the option for a "seamless" 3D metal look. The 14-inch display is available in HD and FHD options, while HP has also upped the top-end SSD storage size to 1TB. As with the rest of HP's x360 laptops, the screen on this Pavilion can be rotated between a typical laptop position to tent and tablet modes on the fly.
The real highlight here, though, is LTE, which is there for people who need to get work done without a Wi-Fi connection always in range. LTE connectivity is something we're starting to see more as an option in new laptops, though it's still not the norm. To see it on a budget laptop is intersting to say the least.
