Qualcomm will pair the 845 with its latest X20 LTE modem, which provides gigabit connectivity on supported networks.

HP and Qualcomm promise a 20-hour battery life on the HP Envy x2, and while it's a lofty promise, if it's true this could well be the longest-lasting Windows 10 device we've ever tested.

CEO of Asus, Jerry Shen, took to the stage at the Qualcomm Tech Summit 2017 now underway in Hawaii to announce the world's first Gigabit LTE laptop, the Asus NovaGo.

Of course the other headlining feature of this tablet is the fact that it's powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor, the very same chip that has powered some of 2017's top smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S8. Just that the NovaGo is running a mobile processor does not put the device into isolation. Always connected to a battery supporting 30 days of standby and 22 hours of active use.

Thankfully though, the HP Envy x2 has alleviated all of our concerns with its impeccably thin and ambitiously premium design. It has some edge over the Intel-powered laptops.

ASUS NovaGo is a convertible laptop with 13.3-inch 1080p display. The model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage runs to $799. This is a huge advantage for mobile users, who can simply add these devices to their cellular accounts and receive internet connectivity anywhere in the world, allowing them to simply turn on their device and start working instead of hunting for Wi-Fi hotspots. HP Envy x2 is slated to launch next sprint, the company hasn't provided the pricing and availability details yet. The machine will come with Windows 10 S pre-installed and will only run applications from Microsoft's Windows Store. PC market is not falling it is just the beginning of an ERA.
