(Snap) Dragon Unleashed


If you spend every day sitting in front of a Windows 10 laptop, we hope there’s more excitement elsewhere in your life. If not, you might at least pick up HP’s new Snapdragon 835-powered Envy X2 hybrid. Qualcomm’s silicon might usually show up in smartphones, but HP reckons this super slab has the grunt to run Windows 10 S or Windows 10 Pro, if you want an upgrade later and give you up to 20 hours of fun between charges. All this sits behind a 12.3in 1920x1280 touch screen, with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of on board storage, making it a potent work machine when paired with the detachable keyboard. Watch out, iPad Pro, there’s a new kid in town.
