HP lets us in on Pricing and Availability Details for its Windows 8 Devices
HP hasn’t exactly done great in the tablet world so far. Everyone still remembers the failure that was the HP TouchPad (even though I kind of liked WebOS, honestly). Even so, it seems the company is gearing up for Windows 8 in a big way with several new ultrabooks, tablets and other products.
We’ve seen and heard the announcements already, but now we finally get official pricing and release information.
Below is a fairly brief run-through of all the HP Windows 8 devices for offer:
HP Laptops and Hybrids
- HP Envy X: First we will start with the HP Envy X2. The 11.6-inch tablet runs on Clover Trail and has an optional keyboard dock. This is probably one of the more exciting devices, even if the design is far from revolutionary at this point. The device also features an 8MP camera, NFC, Beats Audio and (obviously) a touch display. Even better, it has an included detachable keyboard that allows it to turn into a laptop device. Pricing will start at $849.99 and it will land on November 14th.
- HP SpectreXT TouchSmart Ultrabook: This high-end ultrabook features a 15.6-inch multi-touch full HD ips and is just 17.9mm in thickness. The device is HP’s first notebook with Intel Thunderbolt technology and is expected in the United States in December for $1,399.99.
- HP Envy TouchSmart Ultrabook: This ultrabook is a 14-incher, again with multi-touch technology. It also has optional AMD graphics and 2GB of memory. This particular device will set you back 799.99 and is avalaible for pre-orders now.
- HP Pavilion Sleekbook 14 and 15: These two notebooks come in black or ruby red. They will start at $499.99 for the 14-inch variant or $579.99 for the 15-inch model.
- HP Envy m4 notebook: This particular notebook is still thin and light, though not a member of the “ultrabook” group. The laptop is currently available through Best Buy and starts at $899.99.
- HP Pavilion dm1: This device is currently available in the US for $499.99.
HP Desktops and All-in-One
- HP Envy 20 and 23:This 10-point all-in-one series starts a $799 and $999 respectively.
- HP SpectreOne: Yet another all-in-one. This 23.6-inch device is NOT a touch-capable computer but it does have NFC technology. The SpectreOne is expected to hit stores in November for $1,299.
- HP Pavilion 20: This non-touch all-in-one is a space-saving device that is available now and costs just $449.
- HP ENVY Phoenix H9 desktop PC: A traditional desktop PC is probably going to be hard to come by with Windows 8. This base machine is here now and costs just $899.
HP Business devices
- The HP ElitePad 900: This unique business tablet merges portability with business-oriented features. It will arrive in January of 2013 but currently has no official pricing information.
- HP EliteBook Folio 9470m: This busines ultra-book will arrive on Octobre 26th for $1,049.
There are a ton of new devices in this line-up. Like I’ve said before, HP is betting big. What do you think of their line-up? Interested in any of these devices or not?
