HP has announced at Mobile World Congress the HP Pavilion x360. It reminds us of Lenovo’s line of YOGA machines. The Pavilion x360 features a 360-degree hinge that lets you convert the notebook to stand or tent mode, or to tablet. Use the x360 as a notebook to work, rotate into a stand to watch videos, convert into a tent to play, or transform it into a tablet to go anywhere. The starting price is $399.99, which is close to the prices of entry-level notebooks.
