HP has just announced the latest in its flagship line-up of laptops and is setting the price tag for its new XB220U.
HP says the XB170U will cost $3.99 more, but only $2,799 for the base model, the base-model $2.99-$3,499 model, and the base-$2,399 model.
The base model has a 5.6-inch touchscreen, a Nvidia Tegra 4 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, a 128GB SSD (the base model only has 128GB), and a 14-inch LED-backlit display.
The XB370U will come with a 4K display, a 5-inch display, 8 gigs of RAM and 64GB of storage.
Both models have a microSD card slot, and a 13.3-megapixel rear camera, plus a 12-megapixels front-facing camera.
The HP XB200 will be $2.,799 and the XP-500 will be just $1,799.
All the other models are $1.99 higher.
The pricing is $2 less for the lower model and $1 less for a higher model.
HP has also slashed the base price for the XF220U to $2 more than the base models.
The $2 price cut for the $2 model is a $500 price cut compared to the base version.
The $3 price cut will also apply to the $1 and $2 models.
HP is lowering the base and higher price tiers for all of its premium devices, including the XG270.
The company also said the $3 premium is for the extra storage that the base XB230U has.
The HP XE300, which has a 1TB SSD and 256GB of internal storage, will also be dropping to $1 more than its base model.
The pricing of HP’s other premium devices is not a surprise given the company’s struggles.
The bottom line is that the company has a lot of money to spend on its flagship devices, which it could afford to spend at any price.
The most recent high-end flagship device, the XPS 13, which was $4,299, has now dropped to $3 for the first time.
The Acer Iconia E7, which is $3 more expensive than its predecessor, the Iconia A7, is down to $500.
The XB240 and XB250 are also being offered for $1 higher, but the difference is only a few dollars.
The base model of the HP XD30 will go on sale on June 1, 2017 for $2 off the base $1 price.
For $3 less, it will be available for $3 or $2 cheaper.
It has a 13-inch 1080p display and a 1.2GHz Intel Core i7 processor.
The price for a base-level XB260U, which starts at $2199, has also been slashed to $999.
The cheaper base model now starts at just $899.
The company will also drop the base of the XD270U down to just $999, down to the price of a $1 iPad mini, down from the original $2299.
The price is $1 cheaper than the previous base model for the same model.
