HP is updating its Pavilion line of consumer notebooks with new models sporting screen sizes ranging from 11.6 inches to 17.3 inches. Of course, big-screen notebooks don’t usually interest me, so let’s look at the smaller models.

The new 2016 HP Pavilion x360 will be available with 11, 13, and 15 inch screen options, and prices are expected to start at $380 for the smallest model.

The new HP Pavilion x360 with an 11.6 inch display weighs about 3.1 pounds, measures about 0.8 inches thick, features two USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0 port, HDMI output, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth, and up to 6.45 hours of battery life from a 34.6 WH battery.

HP’s Pavilion x360 with a 13.3 inch screen, meanwhile, will be available in at least two configurations:

  • Core i3/4GB RAM/500GB HDD/HD display for $500
  • Core i5/8GB RAM/128GB SSD/Full HD display $700

The notebook weighs about 3.7 pounds, measures 0.8 inches thick, has the same basic port and wireless features as the 11.6 inch version, and has a 41 Hr battery that HP says is good for up to 8 hours of run time.

It doesn’t look like HP plans to offer a new non-convertible Pavilion notebook with a screen smaller than 14 inches. But if you are planning to go for the HP Pavilion with a 14 or 15.6 inch display, the company says it’s made its 2016 laptops a bit more compact than their predecessors.

There’s a new “prismatic battery” which has a smaller footprint since it rests near the front of the laptop instead of the back. This helped HP to make the notebooks not only thinner, but less long than their 2015 counterparts.

HP says the 11.6 inch Pavilion x360 will be available starting May 15th, while the 13.3 inch model launches May 29th.

The HP Pavilion 14 and 15 laptops should be available on June 12th and May 18th, respectively.
