HP Launches Envy X2 Windows 8 Hybrid, Envy Touchsmart Ultrabook 4, Envy 23 AIO
HP has launched three new Windows 8 devices in the Indian market and these are going to be the first devices in their Windows 8 portfolio and shall be instrumental in giving them a momentum to gain a market share in the premium segment where Dell and Lenovo dominate. HP was one of the first computing giants to capitalize on the Indian market but has lost its market share considerably over the years. Here we have a quick run through of their three new products.
HP Envy X2:

HP Envy Touchsmart Ultrabook 4:
Ultrabooks are somewhat replacing laptops and are here to stay. If you do not want a tablet-notebook experience and would rather go in for the conventional performance over the hybrids , these do pack in a punch and and this one adds the functionality of a touchscreen too , making it quite the steal for Rs. 59,990.
