HP looks like it’s been taking a few “Yoga” lessons based on its latest laptop release. The company is showing off the Pavilion x360 convertible at MWC 2014, complete with a 360-degree hinge that resembles the one Lenovo uses on its Yoga devices.
Having such a hinge allows for a full range of viewing angles for the 11.6-inch screen (as the above photo shows), including a “tent” mode or, with the display completely folded down, a tablet mode with the attached keyboard underneath and disabled.
Where the Pavilion x360 primarily differs from the Yoga is in the price. The HP convertible will start at $399, whereas the Lenovo Yoga 2 starts at $549 (and other Yoga models are even pricier). You appear to get similar specs: Both use an Intel Bay Trail CPU and have a display resolution of 1,366×768. The Pavilion x360 offers up to 8GB of RAM and 500GB of storage (in the form of a hybrid hard drive).
