The current school year isn’t even over yet, and HP is already gearing up for the back to school season next year. This is because back to school is one of the best times of year for PC sales and HP wants its share of the loot. HP has announced updates to its Pavilion x360 line of convertible notebooks.
The machines get new processors inside and all of them will be available starting on May 13. All of the x360 models have touchscreen with a new hinge and you can get screens with 1366 x 768 or 1920 x 1080 resolution. All of them will have Bang & Olufsen sound. HP is offering bright colors with silver, red, purple, and green available.
The smallest of the x360 clan is the 11.6-inch model with no fan and fitted with a 32Whr battery good for up to 8.25 hours of runtime. It can be had with Celeron, Pentium, or Core M-5Y10C processors. A larger 13.3-inch version gets a Core i5 Broadwell and a 48Whr battery. Pricing ranges from around $410 for a base 11.6-inch unit up to $530 for a base 13.3-incn unit. You can bet better optioned machines will cost quite a bit more than that.
