Today HP announced the Spectre 13 Ultrabook, Pavilion 13 x2, and Omni 10 offering excellence in entertainment as well as portability.
HP Spectre 13 Ultrabook
Please meet one of HP’s lightest and most powerful Ultrabooks yet, weighing just 3.25 pounds! Watch movies, edit your pictures, play games, share articles with friends, and take advantage of everything else that Windows 8 has to offer on a stunning 13.3” Full-HD touchscreen display. With a 9 hour battery life, full-size keyboard, and the extra-wide HP Control Zone trackpad you can work or play, surf or game all day long.
HP Pavilion 13 x2
Powered by either the latest-generation accelerated AMD A6 processor or new Intel Core processors, this detachable from HP offers tablet functionality and laptop capabilities in one device. Whether lying flat as a tablet or open as a notebook, the13.3-inch diagonal HD touchscreen display with IPS technology delivers vibrant color and versatile viewing angles. The productivity and power of a notebook meets the flexibility and fun of a tablet so you can play games with the tablet, and attach the keyboard when you need to get some work done.
This new 10.1” tablet from HP is powered by Windows 8.1 and an Intel® Atom™Z3000 processor. Packing 9 hours of battery life, it is an ideal tablet for those who want to take their tablet from the boardroom to the living room. Equipped with Microsoft Office 2013, this tablet is ready to go when you are.
You can expect to see the Spectre 13 Ultrabook available for pre-order in the US on October 16th with an opening price of $999.99. The Pavilion 13 x2 will be available in the US on November 17th at $599.99 and the Omni 10 will be available in the US in November with pricing announced closer to availability.
Looks pretty sweet. It looks like the Omni 10 will probably undercut the Surface 2 on price, but we'll have to see how they do side by side.
Also, improvements to Movie Maker and Photo Gallery (is that the right term) would be awesome to piggyback on vieya's comment. Modern UI versions of these with decent functionality would be huge pluses for the whole ecosystem.
Brandon LeBlanc, can you please do a blog post for all the products lineup for Windows 8.1 segregated by the screen sizes (from 7 tablets in to 27 in all-on-one)?
vieya - thank you for your feedback.
Please work on Windows media player, movie maker, media center. It's great to have all these products but if the software isn't there it's pointless. Those programs have not been updated for a very long time. Please work on them.
