HP is announcing a new lineup of computers in time for the launch of Windows 11, including a new, 16-inch HP Spectre x360 convertible and an 11-inch tablet PC in the style of Microsoft’s own Surface line. The new range of portable PCs, which also includes a budget laptop and an all-in-one, will launch with Windows 11 installed. It seems HP is hoping it has the best ultrabook for anyone who wants to run Microsoft’s latest OS.
The HP Spectre x360 16 is the flagship laptop, with up to an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 “Tiger Lake H35” processor and an option for an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 GPU for a bump with creative work. It goes up to a 16:10, 3840 x 2400 OLED touch screen. This new laptop will replace the 15-inch Spectre x360 in HP’s lineup.
HP is packing the Spectre with software features, including reminders not to sit too close to the screen, presence detection, attention tracking that dims the screen when you’re not looking at it, and a “shoulder surfing” mode that blurs the screen when the laptop detects someone looking over your shoulder.
