Today at MWC 2014, HP announced the HP Pavilion x360, an affordable touch convertible PC that transforms the computing experience with a 360-degree hinge that adapts to the way the next generation lives.
“Customers have told us they want a single device that is designed to work and play the way they do, at an affordable price,” said Ron Coughlin, senior vice president, Consumer PC and Solutions Group, HP. “The HP Pavilion x360 is perfect for today’s busy lifestyles. Its 360-degree hinge allows multitaskers to easily transition from laptop to tent to tablet. It’s the laptop that doesn’t make you miss your tablet and the tablet that doesn’t make you miss your laptop — all at a price that is similar to an entry-level notebook.”
Work and play from the couch to the classroom
Whether doing work at the desk, relaxing on the couch, or taking notes and sharing presentations in the classroom, the HP Pavilion x360 easily converts from notebook mode to stand or tent mode, or to tablet mode.
- Notebook mode allows users easily answer email, take notes or write a paper.
- Customers can relax on the couch and use the HP Pavilion x360 to watch movies or video chat in stand mode without having the keyboard get in the way.
- In tent mode, customers can play games, browse photos and share their screen with friends in a more collaborative way.
- By transitioning the device’s 360-degree hinge all the way into tablet mode, customers can browse social networks or read books on the go.
The HP Pavilion x360 is available in two stylish colors that reflect customers’ personal style — Brilliant Red and Smoke Silver. The convertible offers a soft touch finish that resists fingerprints and features brushed aluminum on the keyboard deck.
Music lovers will enjoy the HP Pavilion x360’s powerful entertainment performance powered by built-in Beats Audio, dual speakers designed for great sound in any position and an optimized touch screen. Users also can access their music, stream songs on-demand and create playlists with HP Connected Music.
For young professionals on the go, or busy students, the HP Pavilion x360 is the ideal portable companion, with a weight of just 3.08 pounds. It is equipped with an 11.6-inch diagonal high-definition (HD) SVA display with 10-point capacitive multitouch, Intel Pentium processor, and an HP TrueVision HD webcam.

The HP Pavilion x360 is expected to be available in the Brilliant Red color in the United States on Feb. 26 for a starting price of $399.99.
