HP has announced their latest additions to their convertible laptop options. The company’s new Spectre x360 laptops, available in 13- and 15-inch sizes, will feature an angled USB type-C port that’s placed on the right side where the faceted edge is, which HP promises will make plugging in cords easier.

One of the most interesting features the new laptop hybrids will sport are the new privacy features, which include a camera kill switch and HP’s new Sure View app to manage privacy options for those looking to keep their screens from the being viewed by other individuals in public places. Additionally HP says it has also redesigned the speakers to improve acoustic quality.

While HP says its Spectre x360 15 laptop is its most powerful Spectre to date, the company will still offer the 13-inch variant to those who need almost all-day battery life and optional always-connected 4G LTE data. Ultimately, the choice is whichever is more important—performance or portability.

For those who prefer durability over the two options above, HP’s new EliteBook x360 laptop will feature an aluminum case that HP promises will offer “military-grade” durability. The screen can reach up to 700 nits of brightness for outdoor users, and 4G LTE connectivity is also an option.

The new devices join the HP Spectre Folio as part of their new 2-in-1 devices to be released soon, and are expected to shop over the next few weeks, and will be available at Best Buy stores right on time for holiday shopping.
