HP is announcing a new lineup of computers in time for the launch of Windows 11 , including a new, 16-inch HP Spectre x360 convertible and an 11-inch tablet PC in the style of Microsoft’s own Surface line. The new range of portable PCs, which also includes a budget laptop and an all-in-one, will launch with Windows 11 installed. It seems HP is hoping it has the best ultrabook for anyone who wants to run Microsoft's latest OS.

HP is packing the Spectre with software features, including reminders not to sit too close to the screen, presence detection, attention tracking that dims the screen when you’re not looking at it, and a “shoulder surfing” mode that blurs the screen when the laptop detects someone looking over your shoulder.
Those who are working remotely or with colleagues elsewhere (and who isn’t these days?) may be excited about what HP is calling the “GlamCam,” a 5MP camera with autoframe, artificial lighting correction and a “beauty mode” that “to touch up skin, teeth, and eyes.”
HP also has an 11-inch tablet called, well, the “HP 11-inch Tablet PC.” This feels like a competitor to Microsoft’s Surface Go, with an Intel Pentium Silver N6000 CPU. The tablet, which will be sold both on its own and with a keyboard, depending where you buy it and the configuration, is designed to be used both in portrait and landscape mode, even with the keyboard.
But the showcase feature on the tablet may be the 13MP camera, which you can rotate from its spot on the rear of the device to use as a front-facing webcam. I do expect that some people may be displeased with its placement on the side when using it with a keyboard in landscape (this happens a lot with the iPad Pro), but at least it doesn’t leave you with a lackluster camera on the front.
