HP’s First Always Connected PC Now Available for Pre-order

Posted on February 23, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Hardware with 49 Comments

HP was one of the first companies to introduce the new Always Connected PCs powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon ARM processors. As expected, the company is now taking pre-orders for its first-ever Always Connected PC, the Envy x2, as first noticed by Windows Central.

The company’s Envy x2 is a $999.99 Always Connected PC powered by Windows 10 S, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor clocked at 2.2 GHz, and the Adreno 540 GPU. The device comes with a 12.3-inch WUXGA display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, and only 4GB of RAM. But more importantly, HP claims to offer up to 22 hours of battery life with the device, which is around the same as other Always Connected PCs. Of course, that claim is yet to be proven, but Always Connected PCs should still offer significantly better battery life when compared to the regular Intel-powered 2-in-1s.

If you have $999 to spend on a new 2-in-1 and want to give Windows 10 PCs running on ARM processors, you can pre-order the Envy x2 from HP here. Shipping starts on the 9th of March.
