HP modifies the design of its premium Envy lineup

In addition to the new Elite and EliteBook models, HP has brought the EliteOne 1000 AiO G2 that features a 34-inch curved display panel and a flexible design. The device also features a pop-up webcam, integrated collaboration keys, and audio and noise cancellation features- ideal for video conference calls.

The 13-inch convertible is the first one of its kind to have an AMD Ryzen processor and Radeon Vega graphics.

There's also the HP ENVY Desktop ($799, ) which comes packed with 8th Generation Intel Core multi-core processors, optional NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics, and optional Intel Optane Memory for better system responsiveness.

HP has rolled out a newly refreshed line up of notebook computers, convertible machines, all-in-ones, displays, and other devices. The EliteOne 1000 AiO has been designed for video conferencing with screens measuring between 23.8in and 34in. The 15-inch model comes with either Intel or AMD processors, an optional 4K display, and up to 12 hours and 45 minutes od battery life. The HP Envy 17 laptop is a "desktop replacement" with content creators in mind and has a 17-inch display, with an option for a 4K screen (May $1,050). The EliteBook 1050 supports up to 8th gen Intel Core processors backed by Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics and 4TB of SSD. If you opt to buy an Envy laptop with Sure View, HP says you'll be getting a notebook with a brighter screen than you would otherwise.

Detachable tablets and convertible laptops continue to be viewed as the PC's only hope for survival in a mobile-first tech world, but HP is not ready to commit to just one or two form factors, allowing you to choose from a wide range of new Windows-powered designs.

HP has said the Envy 13 can be equipped with optional MX150 graphics, but the company has yet to release pricing information for this upgrade. 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). The AiO also has a pop-up privacy camera and microphone and includes up to eighth-generation Intel Core i7 processor that can be paired with optional Nvidia GTX 1050 graphics and up to 16GB of RAM.

The HP Elite 1000 series has been updated with the launch of the EliteBook x360 1030 G3, Elite x2 1013 G3 and EliteBook 1050 G1. The HP EliteDisplay S14 will go on sale from July with a starting price of $219 (approximately Rs. 14,800). They also have sound tuned by Bang & Olufsen, service for Gigabit Wi-Fi rates and new HP Control Center software, which enables you to quickly enhance functionality, fan sound and system temperatures based upon what you need.

HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3 is expected to be available in June for a starting price of $1,449.

HP ENVY 17 Laptop is expected to be available in May at for a starting price of $1,049.99. It will be available for purchase in the United States starting June with an initial price tag of $1,279 (approximately Rs. 86,400).

The HP Envy curved all-in-one is a desktop with a 34-inch curved screen, and Amazon Alexa built in (May $1,400). The 34-inch curved version of the device is expected to be available later this year.
