The new models have impressive design aesthetics, sharp and bright display panels, and all new hardware.

HP has also announced an EliteDisplay S14 which will allow users to add a secondary 14-inch display to their notebooks and workstations.

The HP Envy 17 Laptop is a real desktop replacement.

The EliteBook x360 1030 G3 is the smallest in HP's range of convertibles. HP has also provided a proximity alert feature that notifies notify users when the pen is left behind.

It is expected to be available in May at for a starting price of $759.99.

HP EliteBook x360 1030 weigh as low as only 2.76 lbs.

One of the biggest changes coming to HP Envy 13 is the addition of Sure View privacy, an optional feature that HP debuted in its business-level EliteBook line. The detachable includes a keyboard cover that has quick launch shortcut buttons. HP Elite x2 1013 will be running Intel Quad Core vPro processors. HP will sell the Elite x2 1013 G3 in the USA in June with a starting price of $1,499 (approximately Rs. 1,01,230).

What we do know about the 27-inch version is that the two models presented on Monday, May 15 rely on Intel's eighth-generation Core i7-8700T six-core processor with a base speed of 2.4GHz and a maximum speed of 4.0GHz. It is claimed to last up to 18 hours on a single charge. HP will sell the EliteBook 1050 G1 in the USA later this month with a starting price of $1,899 (approximately Rs. 1,28,300).

These will be tasked with powering the AIOs 34-inch WQHD (3440x2140) display. The base camera setup has a front-facing 1920x1080 snapper with an integrated dual-array microphone. The first AiO purpose-built for collaboration, this AiO is an ideal video conferencing solution, with a FHD pop-up webcam, integrated collaboration keys, powerful audio and HP Noise cancellation. The EliteOne 1000 AIO G2, Envy x360 13, Envy x360 15, and Envy 17 Laptop are set to hit shelves sometime in June, starting at £999, £799, £849, and £1,099, respectively.

Other specs which have gotten leaked till date include a 3300mAh battery and 5.8-inch FHD+ display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone will come with 32GB or 64GB of onboard storage, which can be further expanded with an external MicroSD card.

The second series by HP is the HP ENVY Portfolio which packs more features. While the AMD variant runs on a Ryzen 7 with Radeon Vega graphics. This device is also available with either Intel or AMD processors, powerful storage and memory options, and up to a 4K display.

Interestingly, the Envy x360 13 only comes with an AMD processor option.

HP claims that it has battery life of up to nine hours and 15 minutes with general usage.

"HP will also refresh its 34" Envy AIO later in the year.

Finally, there is the new HP Envy Curved AIO 34.

It is an ultra-slim notebook with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics. The machines come with a capacitive touch media control dial and four speakers that the HP says are created to address PC owner complaints about weak, one-dimensional sound. The Envy Curved AIO 34 doesn't have solid specs, but we presume it will come in similar configurations as its 27-inch brethren. For best audio performances it includes Audio by Bang & Olufsen and supports optional fingerprint readers or IR cameras that light up Windows Hello.

It is expected to be available in May at for a starting price of $1,049.99.

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. There's no word yet on USA pricing and availability.
