HP announced its new class of next-generation AI PCs at Microsoft’s AI Vision Event. The tech company touts its latest laptops as being designed for the new AI era, and unleashing the “world’s longest battery life” in an ultra-mobile next-gen AI PC, while also being the “world’s thinnest.”

HP was not shy in describing its upcoming OmniBook X AI PC and EliteBook Ultra AI PC laptops. The company not only claimed these laptops will have the longest battery life (reported at 26 hours) in an ultra-mobile PC, but also that these next-gen AI PCs will deliver extremely fast responsiveness thanks to a dedicated NPU capable of 45 trillion operations per second (TOPS).

The OmniBook and EliteBook are part of what HP calls a new category, which focuses on both flexible work and AI, and crafted for both work and play. These first next-gen AI laptops are said to be built from the ground up with the latest ARM architecture. Both devices will have the advantage of being powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon X Elite processor, and its dedicated 45 TOPs Neural Processing Unit (NPU), along with its strong performance claims.

Also included with both devices will be Copilot+ PCs and what HP calls “its transformative features like Recall.” The company adds that with more AI apps being made available daily, the new category of AI-enabled PCs like the OmniBook and EliteBook will expand the possibilities of what users can achieve. Having AI at one’s fingertips is said to make communications and collaborations more effective with AI tools, while also improving presentation skills in virtual meetings with things like real-time coaching and feedback powered by AI technologies.

AI enables a fundamentally more personalized and creative experience we believe will empower people in both their personal and professional lives.”
