HP has taken the opportunity of the Cannes Film Festival to refresh three of its laptop and 2-in-1 lines, unveiling a new Spectre x2, a new Envy x360 convertible, and two new Envy laptops. Now, let's look in more detail at these new premium devices. Perhaps the star of the show is a new 3,000 x 2,000 pixel touchscreen display, the same number of pixels as the Surface Book - though in this case on a 12.3-inch screen (293 PPI) rather than a 13.5-inch one (267 PPI). The Envy x360 will be available for $899. Versatility is the name of the game with the Spectre x2, and it is available with a detachable keyboard that connects magnetically, and will maintain its position in any operating mode.

Offered in dark ash silver and natural silver colours, the laptop has a micro-edge display, unibody aluminum chassis and fluid geared hinge that provide quality and durability to it.

Purchasers of these laptops can specify a processor from Intel's latest Core i3, i5, or i7 ranges. Fast Charge is also included, so you'll be able to get up to 90 percent of your battery charged in as little as 90 minutes.

The White House said it was aware of the missile launch and noted it had a "shorter range" than the last three missiles tested. South Korea's newly-elected president said Wednesday that the possibility of a conflict with North Korea is high.

Here is a 15.6-inch convertible.

There are also subtle differences between the processor families, with HP claiming you'll get up to 11.25 hours of battery life with an Intel configuration and 10.25 hours of battery with an AMD system.

As PCWorld highlights, the new Spectre x2 uses a pen from N-trig (replacing the Wacom-based pen in the earlier model).

You'll also have the option of adding a separate HP Secure Pad that features an embeded fingerprint sensor in the trackpad. While these are all premium computers with pricey option sheets, their starting prices hover right around the $1,000 mark: the Spectre x2 begins at $999.99, the Envy x360 is $899.99, the Envy 13 starts at $1,049, and the Envy 17 begins at $999.99.

The idea behind the Envy 13 is to offer a direct challenge to the Macbook Air. Additionally, dedicated graphics from Nvidia are optional.
