Not to be outdone by Lenovo, HP has announced its own selection of amazing new PCs and devices for CES 2017.
Here’s what’s new.
Spectre x360 (15-inch)
Following closely behind the “near perfect” 13-inch Spectre x360 (2016) is a new 15-inch variant that offers significant improvements over its predecessor, which I described last year as a “productivity monster.”
That means a 15.6-inch 4K micro-edge display, up to 12 hours of battery life, new-generation Intel Core microprocessors, NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics, two front facing Bang & Olufsen speakers, a Windows Hello-compatible IR camera, and USB-C/Thunderbolt (and normal USB) connectivity.
The Spectre x360 (15-inch, 2017) will ship in February, but you can preorder it right now. It will cost $1279 and up.
HP EliteBook x360
Thanks to the success of its convertible form factors, HP has brought the x360 style and functionality to its business-class EliteBook line. The HP EliteBook x360 delivers up to 16.5 hours of battery life, optional 4K UHD display, a Windows Hello-compatible IR camera, and active pen support.
The new HP EliteBook x360 will ship at the end of January.
HP Sprout Pro
The second generation version of HP’s curious Sprout all-in-one PC features easier interaction between Windows 10 and the device’s HD projector, touch mat and 2D/3D cameras, and it now provides high-precision 3D scanning for the first time (in addition to faster 2D scanning).
Sprout Pro includes an Intel Core i7 processor, 1 TB of SSHD storage, up to 16 GB of RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics, and Windows 10 Pro. It will become available sometime in March, HP says.
HP ENVY Curve AIO 34
This new generation wide/curved AIO features a 34-inch Technicolor Color Certified Ultra WQHD micro-edge display, which HP says “floats over an integrated four speaker sound bar tuned by Bang & Olufsen.” It even includes a low blue light mode for night usage.
The ENVY Curve also ships with 7th-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 desktop processors, an HP Privacy Camera with IR support for Windows Hello, and a microphone that is hidden when not in use. It can wirelessly charge other devices and can be decked out with an optional NVIDIA GFX dGPU and various storage options all the way up to a 256 GB SSD with a 2 TB HDD.
The HP ENVY Curved All-In-One 34 will be available from HP.com starting on January 11 for $1729 and up. Select retailers will get the device starting February 26.
OMEN X 35 Curved Display
This 35-inch curved gaming PC display provides NVIDIA G-Sync technology. It will be available from HP.com and select retailers in March and will start at $1,299.99.
