HP Pavilion x360 14: Convertible Intel Alder Lake laptop debuts from US$599 with an optional 5G modem
HP has announced an updated Pavilion x360 14, which retains its predecessor's design. Still, HP has included a few upgrades within the machine's 1.52 kg and 19.8 mm chassis, including new Intel Alder Lake processors. According to HP, the Pavilion x360 14 will come with the Core i3-1215U, Core i5-1235U and Core i7-1255U, all 15 W processors with Intel UHD or Iris Xe iGPUs, depending on the model.
Additionally, HP will offer an optional 5G modem, to be available at a surcharge. Theoretically, the new Pavilion x360 14 will be one of the cheapest 5G-enabled laptops on the market, although HP has not confirmed how much the 5G modem will cost yet. Separately, the machine will be configurable with up to 16 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and a 1 TB PCIe NVMe SSD. Seemingly, all configurations will feature the same 1,920 x 1,080-pixel, 250 nit and touchscreen display with a 16:9 aspect ratio.
Moreover, HP includes B&O-branded speakers, an optional fingerprint reader and a 5 MP webcam that outputs at 720p. Incidentally, all configurations have an HDMI 2.1 port, a microSD card reader, a USB Type-C port (10 Gbps) and two USB Type-A ports (5 Gbps). The Pavilion x360 14 should be available in the US from the summer, starting at US$599. Unfortunately, HP has not confirmed pricing or availability in other markets yet.
