The new year has officially started as news from the first big tech trade show of the year, CES, has started flowing in. While Apple declined to go this year, and Microsoft has not made an official appearance in years, there’s still lots of news coming out of Las Vegas, including information about a variety of new devices from PC maker HP.

Up first, the Spectre Folio, the leather-clad Surface-like 2-n-1 we first told you about in October, is now available in “Bordeaus Burgundy. The laptop now comes with a 4K option, starting at $1310. If you missed it, here’s HP’s sizzle video for the Spectre:

HP also introduced the “Omen X Emperium” gaming display, the “world’s first big format gaming display with a soundbar.” The new device sports NVIDIA G-Sync HDR, LOFAR Low Frequency Array to make a sub-woofer unnecessary, and a three-way stereo crossover system. The 65″ beast with built in soundbar is expected to be available next month for $4,999.

HP also unveiled an Envy USB-C Hub, with pass through charging, 2 USB-A ports, and a 4K HDMI 2.0 port, available in March for $79, and a new line of Pavilion PC displays, including the 27″ Quantum Dot, the 27″ FHD with built-in B&O Audio, and the 32″ QHD, all for less than $400 and available in the first half of the year.
