Android x360

 

HP’s latest laptop is one of the new breed of hybrids designed to work as a notebook and a tablet. As its name suggests, the HP hits both form factors via a hinge that turns through 360°: the screen folds over and sits flush to the back panel in order to facilitate tablet use.

The red finish makes this one of the most visually exciting hybrids we’ve seen, and the £350 price makes it one of the cheapest, too: only the Asus Transformer Book T100 has been able to match this price, and the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 11 looks positively premium at £500.

The low price doesn’t mean dreary design. The HP Pavilion x360 arrives with a striking shade of red across its lid, base and hinge, and the bright colour is split up by brushed aluminium around the keyboard and across the wrist-rest. Look a little closer and you’ll see that the HP’s matte red paint is flecked with subtle silver glitter. If that’s not for you, don’t worry: this machine also comes in silver.

Android x360

I recently purchased the Spectre x360 (13-4003dx) along with the Bamboo Stylus feel Carbon. Unforunately, the stylus was not compatiable with the Spectre and I had to return it (after reaching out their customer support).

I still want an Active Pen/Stylus for my Spectre to take precise notes with OneNote and I want to know which stylus/pen are compatibile with the Spectre (e.g. if the HP Active Pen  J4R51AA#ABL is compatiable). 

1. can the pen also be used for navigation thru win 8.1 , browsers, scrolling, metro panel, etc on the spectre 360 as the ms surface pro 3 and its pen ?

HP announced a versatile lineup of PCs and PC-shaped things on Monday (Taipei time) at Computex, embracing the new normal in the world of PCs—which is, nothing’s normal.

A year ago, the PC diversification drive was just getting started, but now it’s in full swing. You want a laptop that can flip over with a 360-degree display hinge? HP’s got one. What about a laptop that can split in half? HP’s got one. Or maybe it looks like a laptop, but it runs Chrome or Android—HP’s got some of those as well. It’s also got plain ol’ Windows laptops and PCs, but that’s not where the excitement is anymore.

Let’s start with the hottest trend, which is notebooks that can flip all the way over to turn into a tablet, following the lead of Lenovo’s Yoga series . HP debuted the Pavilion x360 with a full-rotation hinge at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Now it’s got more fleshed-out specs, plus a fancier version that will carry HP’s Envy moniker.
