Asus NovaGo also features Windows 10 features such as Windows Ink with stylus support, Microsoft's virtual assistant Cortana, and Windows Hello for biometric authentication. ENVY x2 is incredibly thin, light, durable and of course always connected, the HP ENVY x2 offers lightning-fast 4G LTE2 and Wi-Fi.

Both of these devices will come preinstalled with Windows 10 S but will allow for a one-time upgrade to a full Windows 10 license which will allow users to install non-Windows store applications.

The HP Envy x2 can be detached and turned into a tablet.

Built upon the Snapdragon 835 SoC, the Envy x2 will be available in configurations featuring up to 8GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of storage.

However, the 845 is also likely to appear in a host of "Always Connected" Windows 10 laptops like the ASUS and HP convertibles also announced today.

The Windows on ARM PCs are part of a broader Always Connected PC initiative, but those cellular machines don't need to have an ARM processor.

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. Pricing starts at $599.

Microsoft has not said when the devices will be available for purchase or released pricing details for the PCs, which run an "optimized" version of Office 365.

Stay tuned to 9to5Google as we report live from the conference throughout the week. HP is promising to eke more than 20 hours out of the chip without a charge, and what's more, the Envy x2 and other Snapdragon-powered machines are created to deliver that kind of battery life even though they're always on and come with LTE built in.
