Computers are required for various purposes. That being said, we need to take them around with us, which is why we have laptops. However, laptops too, like desktops, can be heavy and large making it difficult to carry around. The need to reduce laptop size has become so great these days that manufacturers are now looking towards various CPU options, which require less power. This helps them build fanless units and reduce the overall size. Computex 2017 saw the partnership of Qualcomm with ASUS, HP, and Lenovo. This relationship was established to build ARM-based Windows 10 PCs.
It seems like we are finally going to get a glimpse of it as a leak has finally surfaced thanks to HP’s Care Pack website. The website has listed two versions of an HP laptop. One features a 12-inch display with 4GB RAM and 128GB UFS storage while the other being beefier is equipped with 8GB RAM and 256GB UFS storage. Both laptops will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest and highest end CPU, the Snapdragon 835.
Here’s what Cristiano Amon, executive vice president of Qualcomm said:
The legacy computing model no longer works for today’s consumers, who don’t want heavy, tethered-to-a-power-cable laptops with a frustrating number of accessories. With compatibility for the Windows 10 ecosystem, the Snapdragon Mobile PC Platform will enable Windows 10 hardware makers to develop next-generation device form factors and deliver unparalleled anytime, anywhere creation experiences with up to gigabit-class LTE connectivity.
There is a possibility that HP may launch the two laptops soon as they would like to capitalize on sales during the holiday season.
