The new HP Elite series include the HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3, HP Elite x2 1013 G3, HP EliteBook 1050 G1, and HP EliteOne AiO G2, while the upgraded HP Envy family has the new HP Envy 13 and Envy 17, HP Envy x360 13, HP Envy x360 15, HP Envy Curved AiO 34, and HP Envy Desktop.

The Envy also includes a pop-up privacy camera and microphone and an internal memory that can be expanded up to 16GB.

The HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3 that is claimed as the world's smallest business convertible with a starting weight of only 2.76lbs (nearly 1.25kg) and 15.8mm of thickness. Similarly, HP has provided audio backed by Bang & Olufsen and dedicated collaboration keys.

So the HP 34in Envy Curved AiO will likely be a capable "get stuff done machine" rather than a gaming or workstation powerhouse.

HP ENVY AiO 27 is expected to be available in May at HP.com for a starting price of $1,399.99. Designed for those on the go, this portable display is powered by a single USB Type-C connection for easy connectivity to any USB-C notebook. For those seeking incredible multi-tasking performance, this device is available with either Intel or AMD processors, powerful storage and memory options including Intel Optane, and up to a 4K display, and optional HP Sure View.

HP ENVY x360 15 is one of the most unique creations by HP which will support both touch and pen.

A blue strip light to the front signifies that Alexa is ready to help, and users can expect to interact with Alexa in the same way as with other devices, such as checking the weather or lining up favorite music.

When HP unveiled an even thinner Envy 13, our eyes rolled immediately, as we expected to get the same 'all USB-C spiel.' But to our amazement, this 13-inch notebook features two full-sized USB ports and even optional discrete Nvidia MX150 graphics, despite measuring just over half an inch thick. It is available in June for a starting price of $1,450 and has optional HP Sure Recover with Embedded Reimaging, which stores the software system image in embedded memory. It will be available later this month with a price starting at $799.99 (approximately Rs. 54,000).
