HP has announced a new wave of Pavilion convertibles and notebooks that offer more processor, graphics and display options. Specifically, HP announced:

 Colourful HP Pavilion x360s that flip from notebook mode for working, stand mode for watching, tent mode for playing games and tablet mode for on-the-go.

 Customisable HP Pavilion notebooks that offer more hardware choices including discrete graphics and higher resolution displays. 

"Customers told us that they wanted more colour choices, more hardware options and better battery life in our Pavilion notebooks and x360 convertible PCs,” said Anneliese Olson, VP, Computing Solutions, Printing & Personal Systems, HP Asia-Pacific & Japan. “With our 2015 Pavilion line up, we have combined bold new colours from the runways in Milan with the latest processors to give customers systems with a fresh new look that deliver better performance and battery life across the board.”

“A new wave of millennials are demanding technology to empower them to work and play on their terms. Thanks to Moore’s Law, Intel has been pushing the limits of personal computing, enabling devices that are thinner, lighter, and more versatile than ever before,” said Tim Parker, Vice President and General Manager of Direct and Channel Sales for Intel in Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ). 

“The new range of HP devices with Intel inside combine Intel’s processing power and user experience with HP’s fresh new designs, effortlessly rising up to meet the high expectations of today’s connected generation.”

The HP Pavilion x360s have an innovative hinge that uses a set of three spiral gears for synchronised and precise movement to ensure the display glides smoothly and stays in place, where the user wants it. They 
are available in a new colour palette, including Sunset Red and Minty Green, and include full-sized, 1.5mm travel keyboards for comfort. A full-sized HDMI port, two USB 3.0 ports and one USB 2.0 port are supported.

3 Intel’s numbering is not a measurement of higher performance.

4 Battery life will vary depending on various factors including product model, configuration, loaded applications, features, use, wireless functionality, and power management settings. The maximum capacity of the battery will naturally decrease with time and usage. Battery life was tested using MobileMark 12.

5 For hard drives, GB = 1 billion bytes. Actual formatted capacity is less. Up to 30GB of the hard drive is reserved for system recovery software.
