HP is offering a bevy of fresh laptop designs packing 12th-gen Intel processors and the latest graphics cards.

HP is coming in hot with a host of new laptop designs. At an event in New York City, the company showed them off to us: the new Spectre x360 13, Victus 15, and Omen 16. Gordon Ung walks us through the features of the new designs in all three new laptops in a trio of videos on the PCWorld YouTube channel.

The Spectre x360 13 is the latest of HP’s high-end 2-in-1 designs, competing directly with more expensive variants of the Lenovo Yoga and the Acer Spin. Highlights of the updated version include a 3:2 aspect ratio, a built-in electronic privacy filter, and the latest 12th-gen Core i7 processor and Iris Xe graphics. The battery is 66 watt-hours, an impressive size for a laptop this small. Note the included pen (get it?) that magnetically fastens to the lid.
