The HP Envy x2 Hybrid is an ‘Always-Connected’ PC with a fanless CNC machined aluminium shell. Notably, the laptop is a variant of the ‘Always Connected’ Windows PC model that was launched with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC in December.
It’s more of a traditional Surface competitor for people who aren’t yet ready to adopt a Snapdragon chip for their computing needs. And based on what we’ve seen, it’ll offer up some worthy competition to Microsoft’s machines.
