With a virtual CES 2021 now underway, HP has announced several new portable PC models across its consumer and business lines to ring in the New Year.

Here’s a quick rundown of what’s new.

HP Envy 14 Laptop. The new Envy has a 16:10 14-inch display, 11th-generation Intel Core processors, Nvidia Geforce GTX 1650 Ti graphics with 4 GB of GDDR6 RAM, Thunderbolt 4, and up to 16 GB of RAM. Prices start at $999 and it starts shipping this month.

HP Elite Dragonfly Max. Basically identical to its predecessor, the Dragonfly G2, this version gets 11th-generation Intel Core processors with vPro, 4G/5G connectivity, and a new Sparkling Black color variant. Pricing is TBD.

HP EliteBook 840 G8 Aero. Billed as the world’s lightest mainstream 14-inch business PC, the EliteBook 840 G8 Aero weighs just 2.5 pounds, and it includes 11th-generation Intel Core processors, Tile integration, and Wi-Fi 6 and 5G connectivity. Pricing is TBD, but it will ship in March.

Elite Folio. The second-generation Elite Folio ditches the Y-series Intel chipsets for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx and 5G connectivity but offers the same innovative 3:2 design with a black leather-like covering. Pricing is TBD.
