HP reveals Envy and Slatebook laptops

HP has unveiled the Slatebook 14, a 14in laptop running Google's Android OS at Computex 2014.

The Slatebook 14, the full specs of which were leaked back in April, is a 16mm thick notebook with a 14in, 1080p Full HD touchscreen and integral keyboard.

It also features an Nvidia Tegra 4 mobile processor, and integrated GeForce GPU and, HP claims, has up to nine hours of battery life.

It's not the first HP laptop to run Android. The Slatebook x2 hybrid was released last year, but had a lower resolution 10.1in screen.

The Slatebook 14 also has a USB 3 port in addition to the USB 2 that was available on the Slatebook x2, and runs on Android 4.3 (Jellybean), rather than 4.2.2.

Despite Apple's recent acquisition of Beats, the Slatebook 14 still features Beats audio - indeed HP has pledged to continue using the technology into 2015.

Windows 8.1 Envy
The company also revealed the HP Envy x360, a Windows 8.1 laptop that can flip between a tablet and a notebook thanks to its 360 degrees hinge.

As with the Slatebook 14, it builds upon the previous Envy x2 model, which was also released last year.

Like the Slatebook 14, it has a bigger screen than the Envy x2 - 15.6in compared to 11.6in - which is Full HD, compared to the Envy x2's 1,366 x 768 resolution.

The Envy x360 also features an Intel Core processor, rather than its predecessor's Intel Atom.
