LAS VEGAS, January 10 — The first PCs equipped with a new-generation processor from intel, which features a built-in AMD graphics chip, are on show at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

This 15.6-inch laptop has a touchscreen and a stylus for quick note-taking. In terms of spec, customers can choose an SSD of 256GB to 1TB in size, and 8 to 16GB of RAM. Battery life is announced at over 12 hours. The new HP Spectre x360 15 range is slated for release in March 2018 starting from US$1,370 (RM5,483) in the US. — AFP-Relaxnews
