HP shows off Pavilion x2 convertible with USB Type-C

Not green with Envy about HP's refreshed 15" laptop lineup? Take a look at the new Pavillion x2 10t, a Bay Trail Atom convertible with a 10," 1280x800 IPS display and a Type-C USB port.

This hybrid is powered by one of Intel's quad-core Atom Z3736F processors, with 1.33GHz base and 2.16GHz Turbo clocks, along with two gigabytes of RAM. The USB Type-C port handles charging duties as well as I/O, as with Apple's MacBook. HP includes a secondary USB 2.0 port and a mini-HDMI port on the 10t, however, so a bulky port replicator won't be necessary here. The 10t is also fan-free for silent operation.

The magnetic hinge and detachable screen allow for a total of four operation modes: laptop, tablet, "tent," and stand. When the 10t is attached to its keyboard, the ensemble weighs 2.5 lbs and measures in at about 0.7" (16.8 mm) thick. All by its lonesome, the 10t weighs 1.3 lbs, and it's about 0.4" (9.7 mm) thick. HP claims the battery is good for over 10 hours of video playback, so expect a little less with more intensive usage.

The Pavillion x2 10t will be available July 21. Pricing starts at $299 with 32GB of eMMC storage, while the 64GB version will set you back $349.99. The standard version comes in white, with red and silver finishes available as options.

Tip: You can use the A/Z keys to walk threads.
