Aiming to strengthen its place in the rapidly expanding PC and mobility devices space, computer maker Hewlett-Packard on Wednesday launched a series of touch-enabled notebook, two-in-ones and all-in-one PC for the Indian market.

The products launched on Wednesday by the US-headquartered firm offer affordable touch technology, multi operating system (OS) options among others targeting consumers who are looking for products that offer them a seamless integration in the office, home as well as on the move.

The products launched for the consumer market include notebooks, two-in-one devices, ultrabook and all-in-one PCs.

"People today demand extreme mobility and performance in their computing devices, to access and create content effortlessly anytime and anywhere," HP India Consumer Product Category PPS Director Ketan Patel said.

These new products bring novel touch experiences to help people connect, share and create in ways they never imagined, he added.

The two-in-one devices, HP SlateBook x2 and the HP Split x2, offer full functionality of a notebook with a removable screen that acts as a tablet. While Slatebook x2 sports the Android Jelly Bean operating system priced at Rs 39,990, Split x2 runs of Windows 8 and is priced at Rs 64,990.
