Asus NovaGo is the world's first Gigabit LTE laptop with superfast download speeds which will allow users to download anything within seconds. The NovaGo is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. 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. It has some edge over the Intel-powered laptops.

The HP ENVY x2 combines the best of Windows and with the smartphone freedom. Cortana. Two models will be available, a base with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage for $599 Dollars, and a higher-end model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for $799. We're talking 20 hours of battery life, rather than 8; devices that turn on as fast as an iPad, rather than taking 20 seconds to resume from sleep; and always-on LTE connectivity that doesn't drain your battery life. But we expect more information in the coming weeks. It's paired with up to 256GB of flash storage and 8GB of RAM, which should be enough for some heavy web browsing sessions. Interestingly, the Asus NovaGo will run Windows 10 S, but customers will be able to upgrade for free to Windows 10 Pro through September 2018.
