HP meanwhile says the 12.3-inch ENVY x2 combines the best of a smartphone experience with the best of a Windows PC, promising the world's longest battery life in a Windows detachable.

HP didn't provide any pricing information for the Envy x2, but it did say that customers can expect to buy it next spring. HP is promising to eke more than 20 hours out of the chip without a charge, and what's more, the Envy x2 and other Snapdragon-powered machines are created to deliver that kind of battery life even though they're always on and come with LTE built in. The ASUS laptop also sports a full HDMI socket and a microSD slot, while we don't yet know for sure if the Envy x2 has those ports. The Envy X2 is very similar to numerous Surface Pro types of computers that already exist, while the NovaGo feels just like any other budget to midrange laptop.

Like the NovaGo, having a Snapdragon 835 inside is one of the headline features. The slight caveat here is that Qualcomm has announced the Snapdragon 845 at the conference so it's already out-of-date in a way.

Being an always connected PC, the laptop comes with up to 22 hours of video playback on a single charge, and over 30 days standby.

The new Envy x2 is nearly unrecognizable compared with its brushed-aluminum ancestor, which featured all-day battery life but a painfully slow Intel Atom processor when it debuted in 2013.

You have support for both eSIM and Nano SIM when you roam, although the availability of the eSIM may vary depending on where you live.

"It's not a matter of if, but when all PCs will become Always Connected PCs", said Myerson. We're talking potentially Gigabit speeds so up to seven times the average broadband connection. That means that you'll need to use the tray table when you're on an airplane.

The device is just 6.9mm thin and 1.54 pounds, it has 8GB of LPDDR4X PoP RAM and 256GB of onboard storage.

The Envy x2 has a 12in screen with a 1920x1280 resolution and supports stylus input.

The back of the machine will be made from machined aluminum for a high-end look and will sport a camera that will work with the new 3D features in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.
