Today HP unleashed a refreshment to their line of Pavilion laptops, unveiling new versions of the standard and x360 2-in-1 variants of the laptops that all come with a new metallic chassis, along with a new tool called HP JumpStart.
HP JumpStart will allow for fewer pre-installed apps on HP devices and will instead allow users to select the apps that they want, rather than being forced to have them.
They also included new fast charging technology that they claim will charge an empty battery to 90 percent in under 90 minutes.
They also updated the pricing.
In terms of the standard model, 14-inch model will be available from $699 in the US and will include a Kaby Lake Intel Core i5 processor, 12GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive. The Pavilion 15 and 17 will start with an AMD A12 processor with only 8GB of RAM for from $599 and $629 respectively in the US.
You will be able to upgrade all of these models with up to a Kaby Lake Intel Core i7 processor and either a Nvidia GeForce or an AMD Radeon graphics card.
You can also upgrade the storage on the Pavilion 15 and 17 with up to a 512GB SSD and 2TB HDD combination.
HP says that this standard version will last up to 10 hours.
The x360 version of the new Pavilion laptop will be available in 11.6″, 14″, and 15.6″ screen sizes for from $349, $449, and $579 respectively in the US.
You will be able to get these with up to a Kaby Lake Intel Core i7 processor, up to 512GB of SSD storage and either an Nvidia or AMD graphics card.

They will both be available with a range of colour options.
