HP seems to be preparing to update its Pavilion x360 line of convertible notebooks for the second time this year. In April the company launched new models sporting Intel Braswell and Broadwell processors. Now the company is getting ready to offer new models with Intel Skylake chips.
One of the most interesting is the HP Pavilion x360 11-k135/k137 convertible, which features an Intel Core M3-6Y30 processor, Intel HD 515 graphics, and a fanless design.
That’s a low-power processor that will likely replace the Intel Core M-5Y10 in Intel’s lineup, offering better-than-Atom performance while consuming less power than a Core i3 chip.
The company is also expected to offer a higher-performance chip called the Core M5-6Y57.
Intel hasn’t officially introduced either chip yet, but it’s likely we’ll hear more about the company’s Skylake processors for notebooks, tablets, and low-power desktops at the IFA trade show in September.
As for the new HP Pavilion x360, that hasn’t officially been unveiled yet either, but the HP Australia website has a listing for the new model with a Core M Skylake chip, 4GB of RAM, a 128GB mSATA solid state drive, Bang & Olufsen speakers, and an 11.6 inch 1366 x 768 pixel display that can bend backward 360 degrees to let you use the Windows notebook like a tablet.
Notebook Italia reports that we can also expect to see a new version of the HP Stream 11 low-cost laptop with an Intel Celeron N3050 Braswell processor and 802.11ac WiFi this fall.
You can already buy the Pavilion x360 with a Celeron N3050 or Pentium N3700 Braswell chip for $380 and up.
