HP and ASUS unveil Snapdragon-powered laptops

HP and ASUS unveil Snapdragon-powered laptops

It was looking like 2017 might end without any sign of these new Windows devices with Snapdragon 835 inside, despite Qualcomm earlier saying they would be available in the second half of the year.

At its technology summit in Maui this afternoon, Qualcomm provided some additional details of the results of its partnership with Microsoft to bring Windows to the chipmaker's SoCs. The ASUS laptop also sports a full HDMI socket and a microSD slot, while we don't yet know for sure if the Envy x2 has those ports.

There are now 238 million Xiaomi mobile phones powered by Qualcomm processors. So on the outside it doesn't really look any different to other 2-in-1s that run Intel or any other chip. We already had a chance to check the Envy x2 out - check out our hands-on here.

Padres among finalists for Shohei Ohtani
The Yankees were not the only team to learn they would not be in the running for Ohtani. "The feedback from that was outstanding". We have also heard that Ohtani reportedly likes the pitch the Giants made of possibly playing the outfield as well as pitch.

The big unknowns at this point, other than whether or not HP's battery life claims hold up to our own lab tests, is how the Snapdragon chip will stack up performance- and price-wise compared with competing Intel-powered PCs.

Lastly, the battery life is just awesome!

The first Snapdragon-powered Windows 10 laptop is here and it's coming out of Taiwan.

That's not all as standy time is quoted at 700 hours and HP says you can get 0-90 percent charge in just 90 minutes.

Utilizing the Snapdragon 835 SoC, both of these devices will also feature cellular connectivity from the Snapdragon X16 LTE modem. We're talking potentially Gigabit speeds so up to seven times the average broadband connection. The Envy x2 is, like the Microsoft Surface Pro, a 2-in-1 detachable with a removable keyboard cover with built in hinge, measuring 6.9mm thin, and promising 20-hour battery life. This means that users can take full advantage of the 13.3-in 1920x1080 screen in all sorts of different scenarios from traditional notebook mode to tablet mode. The device with 4GB RAM and 64GB SSD will be available for $599, the one with 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD for $799. Microsoft's Terry Myerson came on stage today to briefly talk about these Windows 10 on ARM PCs, he later detailed the benefits of this new platform via a post on the Windows Experience Blog.
