HP unveils long lineup of new Elite and Envy PCs


The devices are created to straddle work and play environments, which means they are functional but stylish.

HP is attracting Its Sure View technologies into the line, also. This option stores the software system image in embedded memory, ensuring data recovery even if the hard drive is wiped and no network connection is available.

The HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3 that is claimed as the world's smallest business convertible with a starting weight of only 2.76lbs (nearly 1.25kg) and 15.8mm of thickness. It also offers up to 4TB of SSD storage and up to 16 hours of claimed battery life.

HP Elite x2 1013 G3 now fits a 13-inch display into a 12-inch chassis, making it the world's smallest business detachable.

HP EliteBook 1050 G1 is the world's first ultra-slim business notebook with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics, boasting powerful performance with optional hexacore processing12 and up to 4 TB of SSD storage, ideal for the person who needs reliable performance in a sleek package. It will support incredible 16 hours battery life.

For the non-mobile pros, HP has the EliteOne 1000 AiO G2 hailed as the first business class 34-inch curved AIO with discrete graphics. The EliteOne 1000 AiO has been designed for video conferencing with screens measuring between 23.8in and 34in. The display has USB Type-C connectivity and comes with a cover that looks similar to the foldable cover of an iPad.

Today's consumer wants a device that can do it all - whether at home, work or school, their device needs to keep up with their demanding lifestyle. This series of devices supports features like Gigabit Wi-Fi streaming for lightning speed connectivity.

The Envy 13 and 17 laptops are more or less the same device in different sizes.

The Envy 13 will be available in May starting at $1,000 (roughly converted to £740 or AU$1,320) and features an eighth-gen Intel Core i7 processor, PCIe NVMe SSDs and integrated graphics.

The 13-inch convertible is the first one of its kind to have an AMD Ryzen processor and Radeon Vega graphics.

The second series by HP is the HP ENVY Portfolio which packs more features. Likewise, there is the Envy x360 15 that offers creative experiences through touch and pen and includes up to a 4K display as well as more than 12 hours of battery life on a single charge.

Despite these similarities, the HP Envy 13 feels like a much better-equipped laptop thanks to its 13-inch touchscreen, while maintaining all the creature comforts of a tactile keyboard and trackpad that actually still clicks. The Envy Curved AIO 27 features up to an Intel Core i7-8700T processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 4GB graphics.

HP also upgraded its Envy Curved AiO desktop using a new 34-inch version, which HP says is the world's broadest all-in-one PC as well as the very first using Amazon Alexa integration. The device comes with Amazon Alexa on board and incorporates a dark ash woodgrain finish on the base and pale gold accents along the back of the device. HP has also provided an intuitive audio dial that gives a natural way to control the volume or skip songs on a playlist. This generation's wireless charging capability built into the base is three times more powerful than the previous generation, and the AiO has added security with a pop up privacy camera.

Along with the mainstream Pavilion lineup are its Envy PCs that have a feeling of luxury whilst being reasonably priced.

The new HP products will be rolling out in the EMEA starting this month, with the Envy 13 Laptop, Envy AIO 27, and Envy Desktop arriving in May starting at £849, £1,799, and £899, respectively. The X2 1013 will start retailing at $1499 (Rs 1,01,714).
