CES 2018: HP unveils five new exciting products for consumers


This is in contrast to last year's combination of Intel chips and Nvidia graphics. "Whether it's the world's most powerful convertible and the incredible versatility of our ENVY x2 Always-Connected PC, or our cutting-edge suite of OMEN gaming hardware and software, HP technology is changing the game".

The HP Spectre x360 15 has been created to deliver power and performance for creative enthusiasts.

HP Spectre 15 x360 can be configured to run the latest 8th generation Intel Core quad-core processor, which can be partnered with either Radeon RX Vega M or Nvidia GeForce MX 150 graphics. Both the variants support fast charging technology.

It sports the same fanless design with LTE as the Qualcomm-powered laptop, but is slightly thicker and heavier and has a shorter battery life - 16.5 hours instead of 20.

Altice to split into separate U.S. and European companies
As part of this separation €1.26 billion ($1.5 billion) will be returned to shareholders, with €900 million going to Altice Europe.

The 2-in-1 is built from an aluminum CNC machined chassis with a new angular profile of 19.5mm and it weighs 2.1 kg. The HP Spectre x360 15 comes in a single colour variant: Dark Ash Silver with Copper Luxe accents. Security features include an IR camera with Windows Hello, and a fingerprint reader.

Dell has launched what it calls the world's smallest 13.3-inch laptop, the XPS 13, which it says is 24 percent smaller by volume than last year's 2-in-1 model and twice the performance of the original version.

According to the company, HP ENVY x2 is objective built for an "always-on, always ready to work" experience featuring Intel Coreprocessors.

But there is some confusion around Always-Connected PCs, since PC makers will be able to choose between two basic architectures, Qualcomm's Snapdragon and Intel. The hybrid sports a 12.3-inch WUXGA+ display with Gorilla Glass 4 protection.

Study suggests link between ibuprofen, male infertility
Taking the common painkiller ibuprofen has been linked in a small study with a condition affecting male fertility problems. Male fertility is dropping around the world and the researchers wanted to see if ibuprofen might be contributing to this.

The devices' 7 Gen Intel Core Y-Series processors are optimised for maximum performance gains equipped with up to 256 GB PCIe SSD Storage to store presentations and multi-task with up to 8GB LPDDR3 memory.

HP's laptop is one of the first to run Windows 10 on ARM, which uses an energy-efficient architecture for long battery life, and offers Win32 application compatibility via emulation.

The X2 was originally purpose-built for connected productivity with its Wi-Fi and LTE capabilities. Weight of the HP Envy x2 is 766 grams. This PC integrates voice recognition to offer Amazon Alexa support during activities such as web browsing, working, or streaming content. HP has also incorporated Intel Smart Sound Technology that allows for 360-degree reflective audio, which can capture the sound of user's voice from any angle. Pricing and mobile carriers will be disclosed closer to product availability. The display features Nvidia G-Sync and Nvidia Shield integration for an improved gaming experience.
