CES 2017: HP Inc. Ignites Powerful PC Experiences with new Spectre x360, EliteBook x360 and ENVY AIO 34.






The new 15” HP Spectre x360 laptopannounced this week, is an example of that innovation cycle at work. By listening to customers, we knew that 65 percent of them prefer 15-inch displays and that 93 percent prefer the Ultra HD, or 4K, resolution.
 To address and anticipate the needs of customers, we added an NVIDIA 940MX discrete graphics chip that increased the height of the laptop by a mere 1.9mm – or the thickness of a nickel – and included a larger battery, too. We also included the Fast Charge technology that juices the battery to 50 percent in just 30 minutes.

We also know that customers like the freedom that comes with using a stylus pen, so we are using a panel with Ink Certification for N-trig pen to ensure more seamless interactions, whether taking notes, marking up PDFs, drawing or browsing without leaving fingerprints.
Meanwhile, we also reduced the laptop’s overall footprint. With 97 percent of users preferring a thin bezel or no bezel at all, we shifted to a “micro-edge display” design that reduced the bezel width by 70 percent, now only 4.65mm thin on both sides.
Finally, customers told us how much they loved the Ash Silver color on earlier products so the Spectre x360 sports a fully CNC machined aluminum chassis in Ash Silver with copper accents – and made that color an option on a new 13” version, too.
