Lenovo isn’t the only company preparing to launch a new convertible notebook with a new 6th-gen Intel Core “Skylake” processor.
HP is also updating its Spectre x360 line of convertibles with a new model sporting an Intel Core i5-6200U processor.
The computer is said to feature a 13.3 inch IPS display, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth, Ban & Olufsen stereo speakers, a 56 Wh battery, HDMI, mini DisplayPort, and headset jacks, and three USB 3.0 ports. The models listed at Fnac and Icecat feature 4GB of RAM and 128GB of solid state storage. It’ll ship with Windows 10 software.
At first glance, the HP Envy x360 looks like a portable notebook. But it has a hinge that allows you to push the screen back 360 degrees until screen is back-to-back with the keyboard, letting you hold the touchscren laptop like a notebook.
Like many convertibles with reasonably large displays, the HP Spectre x360 is reasonably compact for a notebook, but kind of large for a tablet. It measures 12.8″ x 8.6″ x 0.6″ and weighs about 3.2 pounds.
