HP has unveiled its high-end Windows 10 convertible and categorically has set its sights at the Microsoft's Surface Book. The two new Windows 10 laptops, the HP EliteBook x360 and the Microsoft Surface Book i7, are reportedly offering nearly everything that modern laptop users desire with very few trade-offs.
Unveiled at CES in Las Vegas, the HP EliteBook x360 according to the post of The Inquirer, is allegedly the 'world's thinnest business convertible' at 14.9mm-thick. It is also advertised to have the longest battery life in any convertible, with HP promising up to 16 hours and 30 minutes of use when fully charged. The Fast Charging support built-in the EliteBook x360 apparently allows the device to come up with 50 percent charge in just 30 minutes.
In a comparative assessment posted by CRN, both the EliteBook x360 and Surface Book i7 feature touch screen displays that convert into tablets. The EliteBook has a 13.3-inch display that can fold all the way back, while accordingly, the Surface Book has a 13.5-inch display that can be detached from the keyboard. Consequently, HP is presently in FHD 1,920 x 1,080 BrightView, and in the meantime that HP is reportedly updating its display, the Surface Book i7 triumphs with its 3,000 x 2,000 PixelSense.
HP is allegedly using the latest-generation, top-of-the-line Core i processors known as Kaby Lake from Intel. Microsoft's Surface Book i7, as the name suggests, apparently features the older, sixth-generation line Core i7-6600U also from Intel. Apparently, Microsoft's schedule for the Surface Book i7 was not in line Intel's timetable for the Kaby Lake release. Both the EliteBook x360 and Surface Book i7 offer configurations with 8GB or 16GB of RAM. The EliteBook x360 comes in configurations with 128GB or 256GB of SATA solid-state storage, and also with 256GB or 512GB of PCIe solid-state storage. Microsoft, on the other hand, offers PCIe for all of the Surface Book i7 storage configurations: 256GB, 512GB or 1TB.
