HP Ushers in New Computing Era With Next Generation Consumer PCs That Combine Exciting Windows 10 Experiences, Powerful Intel® Processors and HP’s Breakthrough New Form Factors and Designs
BARCELONA, Oct. 7, 2015 — Continuing its drumbeat of innovation, HP today announced more than a dozen breakthrough new products, including an enhanced convertible, a beautiful premium detachable, 3D experiences and a one-of-a-kind curved all-in-one that ushers in a new era of personal computing.
Working closely with Intel and Microsoft, HP is delivering innovation that converges the very best of Windows 10(1) experiences, like Hello and Continuum,(2) with 6th Gen Intel® Core™ processors(3) and HP’s innovative hardware designs to deliver unprecedented computing experiences.
With over half a billion PCs in the world that are more than 4 years old, the time for exciting new form factors, leading-edge design and powerful devices is now. The new HP devices are nearly half the weight, a third the height and nearly twice the battery life versus their older counterparts and offer incomparable experiences to aged devices.
Consumer response to Windows 10 has been extremely positive, with over 110 million devices running Windows 10 worldwide since its launch in July. Windows 10 is the fastest, most personal and secure Windows ever – providing a new level of personalization that allows people to be productive and entertained.
Sixth Gen Intel® Core™ processors(3) deliver great graphics, outstanding battery life and increased flexibility. HP’s deep understanding of consumer computing needs allows it to combine these benefits with its hardware prowess to deliver a comprehensive set of products that address customer needs like never before.
“This is an incredibly exciting time in the personal systems space with major advances in technology and design,” said Ron Coughlin, senior vice president, Personal Systems, HP. “The breakthrough products we are announcing today come as a result of three technology leaders – HP, Intel and Microsoft – coming together to bring excitement back to the personal systems space with powerful innovation and incredible experiences for our consumers.”
“Windows 10 is built to help people do great things, with features like Cortana, a personal assistant that goes with you from device to device; Windows Hello, so you never have to remember a password again; and Microsoft Edge, for personal and productive web browsing, said Terry Myerson, executive vice president of the Windows and Devices Group, Microsoft Corp. “We worked hand-in-hand with HP to deliver this innovative portfolio of new devices that will bring the very best of Windows 10 to life for people worldwide.”
“Intel has collaborated closely with HP to introduce amazing innovation and experiences to consumers and business users,” said Kirk Skaugen, senior vice president and general manager, Client Computing Group, Intel. “HP’s new lineup of 2-in-1s, notebooks and All-in-One desktops showcase the incredible performance, power efficiency, immersive experiences, and range of sleek designs that 6th Gen Intel Core processors make possible.”
No matter the form factor – thin and light notebooks, versatile 2-in-1s, powerful desktops and all-in-ones – today’s PCs let people consume and create in a way that is unique to them – the definition of personal computing. Among the new HP products that will help drive new experiences for customers include:
- The widest curved all-in-one in the world,* the HP ENVY Curved All-in-One features a 34- inch diagonal Technicolor Certified display for a completely new immersive experience. The all-in-one features Intel® RealSense™(4) technology to enable Windows Hello.(2)
- HP’s thinnest notebook ever, the HP ENVY notebook gives customers big power with 6th Gen Intel® Core™ processors(3) in a 13.3 inch diagonal notebook that is only 12.95 millimeters, much thinner than the diameter of a dime, and weighs under 3 pounds.(5)
- The beautiful and sleek HP Spectre x2 that combines a thin and light tablet design with the productivity of a notebook with a superior metal keyboard for the very best of both worlds. It is the first detachable to offer audio tuned by Bang & Olufsen for both dual speakers on the tablet and keyboard for great sound.
- HP Stream 11.6-Inch and 13.3-inch diagonal notebooks that raise the bar on the cloud-based windows PC category that HP and Microsoft created last year with a new slimmer designs, vibrant colors and the addition of Intel processors
