  • Microsoft and Qualcomm promise once/week charging for Always Connected Windows 10 PCs

You can also detach the keyboard cover completely and use the Envy x2 as a standalone tablet akin to the iPad Pro.

We expect further details to head the bill at tomorrows Qualcomm Tech Summit keynote, but for now we have no further information on the chip, other than it will be manufacturered by Samsung, just like the Snapdragon 835. Lenovo is confirmed as a Windows on Snapdragon partner, but won't be bringing out its machine to play until CES 2018 in January.

There are plenty of Microsoft Surface rivals - or clones if you like - out there and the HP Envy x2 is now another one.

Supermoon to light up the sky this weekend
Stargazers will get a chance to witness the first and only supermoon of this year Sunday night. This last full moon of the year is known as a Frost Moon, Cold Moon or Moon Before Yule.

Asus CEO Jerry Shen was on hand to reveal the Asus NovaGo, an ultra-thin and light convertible laptop powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 with 8GB of memory and 256GB of Universal Flash Storage 2.0 (UFS 2.0), which is capable of speeds up to 1,400Mbps. That combination seems a bit anemic to us, especially when you consider that some Windows apps designed for Intel-powered machines will not run natively on the Snapdragon processor, instead requiring processor-intensive emulation. The slight caveat here is that Qualcomm has announced the Snapdragon 845 at the conference so it's already out-of-date in a way. These type of PCs, such as the ones from HP and ASUS are running Windows 10 on ARM, and they can deliver all-day battery life, better security, and much more. The NovaGo offers up to 22 hours of battery life (video playback), up to 30 days of standby time, and comes with support for Windows Ink, Windows Hello, and Cortana. The 360-degree hinge allows you to use the device any way you like (as a laptop, tablet, or in "tent" mode), and Asus Pen support can give creatives the ability to draw on the screen the same as they would on paper or canvas.

That's not all as standy time is quoted at 700 hours and HP says you can get 0-90 percent charge in just 90 minutes.

The Envy x2, in keeping with Microsoft's always-connected PC vision, purportedly sports long battery life, almost instant wake times from a sleep state, and ubiquitous LTE connectivity. It also says that the built-in LTE connectivity will provide significantly faster speeds than other now available LTE-equipped Windows 10 computers. Retail prices start from US$599 for the 4 GB RAM/64 GB storage version and tops at US$799 for the 8 GB RAM/256 GB storage version.
