Windows 10 on ARM PCs will ship with Windows 10S

Qualcomm takes aim at Intel in PC processors

Until then, it's worth mentioning that, once again, the Snapdragon 845 is the result of the collaboration between Qualcomm and Samsung. It promises to provide better power efficiencies, reliable performance, and always-on connectivity compared to the x86 Intel-based computers that have existed so far.

HP and Asus have announced the first Windows 10 PCs running on ARM - Snapdragon 835 - and they're boasting about instant-on, 22 hour battery life, and gigabit LTE.

As for the HP model, the Envy x2 has a 12.3-inch HD display, up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, a stylus, d and a detachable form factor. This is also the first notebook that runs full Windows 10 on the ARM CPU. The Envy X2 is very similar to numerous Surface Pro types of computers that already exist, while the NovaGo feels just like any other budget to midrange laptop. We've already detailed the finer points and pitfalls of Qualcomm's ambition, but now we can see if the company can make it stick with a new pair of devices from Asus and HP. It has some edge over the Intel-powered laptops. However, connectivity on the NovaGo includes 2x USB 3.1 Type-A ports, as well as an HDMI Port and Micro-SD card slot for memory expansion allowing for more options than the HP Envy x2. Now though, you'll be able to get an Always Connected PC with an AMD processor and Qualcomm modem.

Washington Post Poll of Alabama Senate Race Oversamples Democrats
Judge Roy Moore and Doug Jones are in a statistical tie, according to a new poll out today from the Washington Post . Eighty percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents said they trust Moore over Jones on abortion.

Qualcomm promised higher battery life when it announced the endeavor to create Always On Windows devices with its Snapdragon 835 SoC, and if Asus and HP's claims are true, these devices certainly appear to deliver on that promise.

Microsoft has not said when the devices will be available for purchase or released pricing details for the PCs, which run an "optimized" version of Office 365. Stay tuned as we'll be expanding and upgrading this review very shortly with more info. Phones with a Snapdragon 845 and compatible antennas should be faster than last year's phones on the same LTE networks, and thanks to some improvements Qualcomm made earlier this year, it should also be easy for device manufacturers to use the X20 modem to support T-Mobile's new 600MHz network.
