HP reveals new models of its detachable and convertible Windows 8.1 notebooks

HP has some new models of its Windows 8.1 notebook-tablet hybrid devices coming out this fall, including two detachables and one that converts from a laptop to a tablet with a flip screen.

HP has this to say about its two new ENVY x2 notebooks, which feature displays that detach from their keyboard and can be used separately as touchscreen tablets:

"Available in 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch diagonal form factors, the HP ENVY x2 is powered by the latest-generation Intel Core M processor and keeps up with the most demanding tasks while delivering great battery life. A fabric-covered, backlit Bluetooth keyboard provides flexibility for customers to find the most comfortable position for them, whether attached or not, and covers the screen for protection on the go."


The new HP Pavilion x2 has a 10-inch touchscreen that can flip around so that the screen can be used by as a tablet, with the keyboard turning into either a stand or a cover. HP says:

"The HP Pavilion x2 is a portable, versatile, highly affordable 2-in-1 PC powered by the latest-generation Intel Atom processor, and features front-firing speakers with DTS sound and a battery that lasts up to 11.75 hours for serious staying power to shift from work to play without missing a beat."

The 13.3-inch HP ENVY x2 will go on sale October 29 starting at $1,049.99 and the 15.6-inch version follows on November 5 starting at $949.99. The HP Pavilion x2 will also go on sale October 29 for a starting price of $329.99. What do you think of these new HP Windows 8.1 hybrids?
