HP has announced two new laptops with Arm artificial intelligence based on Snapdragon X Elite – the OmniBook X and EliteBook Ultra G1q. In this article, we’ll talk about the HP OmniBook X, which offers a 14-inch screen and weighs just 1.35 kg.

Technical characteristics and features of the HP OmniBook X AI computer:

This laptop is available in two different colors – Ceramic White and Meteor Silver. It offers you a 512GB or 1TB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD that is paired with 16GB/32GB LPDDR5X 8448MHz RAM.

The device is powered by a 12-core Snapdragon X Elite X1E-78-100 chipset with a clock speed of up to 3.4 GHz. It is noteworthy that there are two more variants (X1E-80-100 and X1E-84-100) that reach even higher clock speeds. The chipset is claimed to be more efficient than the latest offerings from Intel and AMD.

Opening the lid reveals a 14-inch 2.2K (2240 x 1400) IPS touchscreen with a density of up to 300 nits and certified for low blue light emission, which should be comfortable for the eyes. The screen to body ratio is 87.8%. You can get an idea of the bezels in the image above.

For video calls, there’s a 5-megapixel webcam and a full-size backlit keyboard that matches the color of the laptop. For security, there is a microphone mute button and a camera shield.

The 1.35 kg laptop is equipped with a 59 Wh battery and comes with a USB Type-C power adapter. According to the company, it charges 50% in 30 minutes.

HP OmniBook X with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage costs $1149 (~8319 yuan) on the company’s website.

While the chipset is powerful and efficient, the overall user experience will also depend on the support and optimization of the Windows on Arm applications. You can check whether the specific apps you use have native support on the WoA platform or not.
