It's May, and students everywhere are making last-minute prom preparations and watching the clocks tick down to summer break.But HP is here to remind you that back-to-school season is just around the corner while the world keeps turning relentlessly.
With a new series of devices, which is to be put on the right academic basis from September 2017, the computer manufacturer has a big head start in the fall.
Kicking off the collection is the Pavilion x360, a convertible Windows notebook that benefits from the design language inherited from the higher-end Specter line and is built around a gear hinge that rotates into four different positions.
The line is available in 11.6, 13.3, and 15.6-inch screen sizes that weigh between 2.93 and 5.07 pounds. The laptops are thinner and lighter than last year's models, but unsurprisingly bulkier than their Specter Brothers.
The convertibles with sixth-generation Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors and integrated Bang & Olufsen speakers are also significantly cheaper than the Specter x360, with an 11-inch starting price of $380.
Those trusty, non-convertible Pavilions are also refreshed with slimmed-down profiles, new colors and sixth-generation Core i7 processors. The line is available in 14-, 15.6- and 17.3-inch sizes and offers resolutions up to 4K and a optional touchscreen. This line starts at $540.
Also of note is the Pavilion all-in-one line, which has an optional edge-to-edge display that includes an integrated pop-up webcam that hides and saves users a lot of spy-blocking pieces of electrical tape, when the thing is not in use.
Available in 23.8- and 27-inch versions, the AIOs feature a large, sonorous B&O speaker grille and an optional touchscreen, all starting at $700.
The above laptops feature a colorful new thread design on the palm rest - as colorful as the fleeting last hours of a summer sunset.Now go to bed.You have school tomorrow morning.
