The 11-inch model comes with Pentium and Core i3 processors as well as a maximum of 8 GB of memory. In the 14-inch version HP chips packs the Core i3 to Core i7 family and donates up to 12 GB of RAM. The 15-inch Pavilion x360 works with the same processors as the 14-inch brother, but can access up to 16 GB of memory. SSD technology is used as data storage, more specifically models with m.2 connection, according to HP. Up to 512 GB are installed in the Pavilion x360. The expensive variants also feature a dedicated graphics unit from AMD or Nvidia - the same as in the Pavilion notebook. For all model variants, HP promises battery life, which should be sufficient for one working day (up to twelve hours), and can be quickly regenerated in an emergency thanks to FastCharge. WLAN ac-standard, three USB-3.0 jacks (14 and 15-inch models run as Type C), and an HD webcam are integrated as standard.
