Today, HP announced three notebooks featuring touchscreen displays: the HP ENVY x2, the HP SpectreXT TouchSmart Ultrabook, and the HP ENVY TouchSmart Ultrabook 4.
The HP ENVY x2 solves the “Do I bring my notebook or tablet?” dilemma. Users get the power of a notebook and the freedom of a tablet in one stylish, lightweight device. The HP ENVY x2 has a detachable, 11.6” touchscreen display that becomes a full tablet when separated from the keyboard via a seamless magnetic latch.
It uses solid state memory for improved reliability and faster startup times, and it comes with an HD webcam on the front and an 8-megapixel camera on the back.
The HP SpectreXT TouchSmart ultrabook features a 15.6” touchscreen display, measures 17.9 mm thin and weighs 4.77 pounds. It is HP’s first ultrabook with Intel Thunderbolt technology.
The SpectreXT TouchSmart is equipped with the latest Intel Core processors, an mSATA solid-state drive with Intel Rapid Start, Intel Identity Protection Technology, Intel Anti-Theft Technology, Intel Smart Response, Intel Smart Connect technologies, and a full array of ports, including Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0 and HDMI.
The HP ENVY TouchSmart Ultrabook 4 offers a 14” touchscreen display, measures 23 mm thick and weighs 4.77 pounds. It also has a backlit keyboard, up to 8 hours of battery life, an optional AMD graphics card with 2 GB of graphics memory, and the same Intel technologies available on the HP SpectreXT TouchSmart Ultrabook.
