Hinged laptops among range of new Pavilion products as HP looks to attract on-the-go workers

HP has refreshed its Pavillion range of laptops with Intel Skylake processors and its most flexible notebook yet.

The HP Pavilion x360 is a hinged laptop (much like Lenovo’s Yoga products) that allows users to change the form factors depending on work or personal needs.

Available in 11.6 inch 13.3 inch or 15.6 inch screen sizes, the Pavilion x360 is able to transform into four different forms –  Stand mode for watching movies, Tent mode for photo viewing and editing, Laptop mode, and Tablet mode..

Inside is a powerful battery that HP says will provide up to nine hours and fifteen minutes of battery life and can be recharged up to 90 percent in 90 minutes when powered off thanks to HP’s Fast Charge technology.

Users will be able to choose between an Intel Celeron, Pentium or even the latest 6th Generation Core ‘Skylake’ i7 processors subject to model, and have the option of including up to 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD storage or 1TB hard drive depending on the model.

As for media, the Pavilion x360 continues HP’s relationship with Bang & Olufsen, which provides its PLAY audio capabilities for richer and more detailed sounds, and there’s also an HP WideVision HD camera for videoconferencing and Skype calls.

There’s also two USB 3.0 ports (and one USB 2.0) alongside an SD card reader and HDMI port for connectivity needs.
