HP’s business class laptops are getting a thin and light convertible model. The new HP EliteBook x360 is a 2.8 pound notebook that measures 0.6 inches thick, and which borrows some style elements from the company’s consumer-focused Spectre x360.
But the HP EliteBook x360 also has a MIL-STD tested case for durability and support for biometric security thanks to a fingerprint sensor and Windows Hello-compatible IR camera.
The convertible laptop should be available later this month.
HP’s notebook will be available with Full HD and 3840 x 2160 pixel Ultra HD display options and features a touchscreen and Corning Gorilla Glass. There’s also support for pen input.
The system supports up to an Intel Core i7 Kaby Lake processor with vPro, up to 16GB of DDR4 memory, and up to 512GB of PCIe solid state storage. You can connect up to two external 4K displays thanks to a full-sized HDMI port and a USB Type-C port.
There are also two full-sized USB 3.0 ports, a microSD card reader, a smart card reader, and a 3.5mm headset jack.
As a business-focused computer, there are also dedicated buttons on the keyboard for collaboration features including keys for answering or ending Skype calls, or sharing your screen with other participants in a web conference.
HP says the laptop should get up to 16.5 hours of battery life and supports fast charging so that you can get a 50 percent charge by plugging in the EliteBook x360 for about 30 minutes.
