However, the HP Envy X2 which also runs on Snapdragon, will be available "spring 2018", so we expect the NovaGo to be similar. The new version looks more like a Microsoft Surface Book, complete with a folding keyboard cover and a kickstand, and a holder for the included HP Digital Pen. ARM computers aren't noticeably thinner or lighter than others, and though they lack any sort of fans, many newer Intel computers are fanless, as well.

This was all we were told about the processor today, along with the implication that it would be released next year, because of course it will.

Recently AMD announced it was bringing its new high-performance x86 CPU cores and its latest GPU architecture to the notebook space. The tech firms have jointly just about managed it by introducing the NovaGo. The model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage runs to $799.

On the specs front, the Envy X2 is definitely the more premium-looking of the two models, and has a 12.3-inch 1920 x 1280 pixel display with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The Envy relies entirely on USB Type-C ports for its input and output, while the Asus has full-size USB Type-A ports and an HDMI port. Until then, it's worth mentioning that, once again, the Snapdragon 845 is the result of the collaboration between Qualcomm and Samsung. We already had a chance to check the Envy x2 out - check out our hands-on here.

It the first "Always Connected" Gigabit Windows laptop and boasts better than all-day battery life thanks to its Snapdragon 835 chipset and Snapdragon X16 LTE modem.

CEO of Asus, Jerry Shen, took to the stage at the Qualcomm Tech Summit 2017 now underway in Hawaii to announce the world's first Gigabit LTE laptop, the Asus NovaGo.

More technical details of the chip are coming tomorrow, but we know that the chip is based on a 10nm process, like last year's 835.
