HP is launching four new budget laptops designed for business and education customers. The new HP Fortis series laptops are all powered by Intel Alder Lake-N processors and feature support for up to 16GB of LPDDR5 memory, WiFi 6E and optional support for 4G LTE in some regions.

HP says three new HP Fortis Chromebook models are available today, with prices starting at $309, and there’s also a new HP Pro x360 Fortis 11 G11 notebook with Windows that starts at $479.

HP Pro x360 Fortis 11 G11

The Windows model is a convertible notebook with an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel touchscreen display (in 2024, seriously?) with a 350-degree hinge and support for pen input. The laptop measures 297 x 204 x 21mm (11.7″ x 8″ x 0.8″) and has a starting weight of 1.47 kg (3.24 pounds).

Under the hood is an Intel Alder Lake-N processor, a 42 Wh battery, and support for up to 16GB of LPDDR5-6400 memory as well as 128GB of UFS storage and support for a 256GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD.

The HP Pro x360 Fortis 11 G11 has a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C port, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, an HDMI 2.1 port, Ethernet jack, and 3.5mm audio jack. Models with a 4G modem also have a SIM card reader.

Other features include stereo speakers, an HD webcam, and optional support for a 5MP world-facing camera. The laptop has been MIL-STD-810 tested for durability and has a plastic body with metal reinforced corners, rubber trim, and Corning Gorilla Glass protecting the display.

HP Fortis Chromebooks

As for the Chromebooks, they come in three flavors. Sadly only one has a full HD display (and it’s only an option on that model).

  1. How do you find these “low” prices on the HP site anyway? The lowest I see is a 1K$ + priced 11inch screen snoozer.

    1. Probably they sell them through different channels directly to companies and schools? I’ve actually found one of these already on Ebay here in Italy, with no picture, but the seller has a 96% positive feedback over 700+ sales, though.

      To be honest I would rather get the Acer Aspire Go 14, if one needs an Alder Lake N budget laptop, at least you can replace the SSD…

  2. The prices are a bit too high to be appealing. Maybe buy it when it goes on sale after the product fails to sell?
