"HP's undisputed design and engineering leadership is delivering the ultimate combination of style, performance, and versatility", said Ron Coughlin, president of the Personal Systems group at HP, in a statement.

HP announced several new notebooks, desktops, and all-in-one (AIO) systems for its premium Envy and 1000-series PCs. This series is an all-in-one as it includes ample battery life, security, collaboration tools and many more unique features.

The HP Elite 1000 series is supposed to give you a feel of best-in-one. The all new HP EliteBook x360 1030 is the first device to feature optional HP Sure Recover with Embedded Reimaging. That option allows the software system image to be stored in embedded memory so that data recovery can happen even if the hard drive has been wiped and no network connection is available. It has up to 17 hours of battery life, Cat9 LTE, and the world's first active pen with proximity alert for business PCs. HP offers it with Intel Quad Core vPro processors and up to integrated Cat9 LTE.

HP EliteBook 1050 G1 is the world's first ultra-slim business notebook with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics, boasting powerful performance with optional hexacore processing12 and up to 4 TB of SSD storage, flawless for the person who needs reliable performance in a sleek package. HP offers up to 4TB of SSD storage for the machine and an optional HP Privacy Camera to protect the webcam.

The display has USB Type-C connectivity and comes with a cover that looks similar to the foldable cover of an iPad.

Today's consumer wants a device that can do it all - whether at home, work or school, their device needs to keep up with their demanding lifestyle.

The new Envy products are more interesting from a gaming standpoint.

In terms of security, AMD-based models will feature Full HD IR webcams for biometric login, while Intel-based models feature the side-mounted fingerprint readers also seen in the Envy 13 and 17.

The two new HP Envy x380 convertible laptops come in 13-inch and 15-inch screen sizes. "Display and storage configurations will vary, but options include 1080p and 4K screens and up to 1TB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSDs, 512GB SATA M.2 SSDs, or 256GB 2.5" SATA SSDs.

The models also include the HP Envy x360 13, a 13-inch convertible with AMD Ryzen processor and Radeon Vega graphics that has up to 11 hours of battery life (May $760).

HP unveiled the Alexa-enabled PC along with four other new Envy laptops and five new additions to its Elite line of laptop and Desktop PCs.

The thicker (0.91-inch) Envy 17 features an Intel Core i7-8550U CPU with a discrete Nvidia GeForce MX150 GPU, with 2GB of dedicated memory.

With an Eye-catching all-metal design along with a pale gold or natural silver color, it is sleek and stylish. The device is also created to get things done, with optional NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 discrete graphics.

The Envy 13 might not be part of HP's flagship Spectre line, but it basically should be. This generation's wireless charging capability built into the base is three times more powerful than the previous generation, and the AiO has added security with a pop up privacy camera.

Finally, there'll be the HP ENVY Desktop.

It will be available this month, starting at around £849 in the UK.

It hit stores in June, starting at £1,099. The HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3, Elite x2 1013 G3, and EliteBook 1050 G1 will arrive in July, with each starting at £1,199.

In regular business scenarios, the HP EliteOne 1000 will comfortably handle most workloads, but it should be capable of so much more. HP EliteBook S14 is expected to wear the tag of $219. It will be available later this month with a price starting at $799.99 (approximately Rs. 54,000). I just wish it were on the whole lid, and not just the rear end.The Envy x360 15 in laptop mode.
