Hands on: HP Envy 13 (2018) review

HP has also announced an EliteDisplay S14 which will allow users to add a secondary 14-inch display to their notebooks and workstations.

Touted to be the world's smallest convertible for business, it is also one of the lightest weighing just under 1.25kg and is 15.8mm slim.

As a smart speaker, the AiO 34 also comes with a massive soundbar with four Bang & Olufsen speakers and two passive radiators specially arranged to project a cone of sound at the user. The Envy x360 15 offers either Intel or AMD Ryzen CPUs, GeForce MX 150 or Radeon Vega graphics, and a 1080p or 4K screen with Sureview technology to stop people being able to see your screen over your shoulder while you're working.

Those specs? An AMD Ryzen 7 2700U, which benchmarks similar to a last-year Intel Core i7, and is supported by AMD's Vega 10 Graphics, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of M.2 SSD storage. HP was again vague on the specifications, but it did reveal that the 1013 G3 offers up to quad-core Intel processors with vPro, integrated privacy screens, and 4G cat9 LTE connectivity.

Both the Envy 17 laptop and Envy x360 15 also feature Intel Optane memory features for faster loading times.

HP's new Envy all-in-one possesses it in spades, and not just because of its B&O-meets-2001 design, which perches a sweeping 34in 2K curved monitor atop a sleek black box of innards (that includes a built-in wireless charging pad for your phone, no less). The EliteBook x360 1030 supports up to 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor and HP's upgraded pen.

The two new HP Envy x380 convertible laptops come in 13-inch and 15-inch screen sizes.

As with the three previous iterations of the Envy series, the Envy 13 includes a lifting hinge that raises and pitches the keyboard base at a slight angle for a more comfortable typing position. Along with the optional HP Privacy Camera to protect the webcam against malicious surveillance, the device has up to 16 hours of battery life for all-day connectivity and productivity.

HP ENVY AiO 27 is expected to be available in May at HP.com for a starting price of $1,399.99.

The refreshed EliteBook x360 is billed as the "world's smallest business convertible", at only 2.76 pounds and up, staying on for a maximum of 18 hours between battery charges, and featuring a unique alert system making sure you'll never lose your laptop's active pen.

HP EliteOne 1000 AiO G2 is expected to be available in June for a starting price of $1,279.

The ENVY Curved AiO 34 packs a huge, 34-inch display, mounted in an all-new design. The machines come with a capacitive touch media control dial and four speakers that the HP says are created to address PC owner complaints about weak, one-dimensional sound. It is available in June for a starting price of $1,450 and has optional HP Sure Recover with Embedded Reimaging, which stores the software system image in embedded memory. While the Envy 13 starts at $999.99 (approximately Rs. 67,500), the Envy 17 comes with an initial price of $1,049 (approximately Rs. 70,900). There's no word yet on US pricing and availability.
